Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh
Published By: HarperTeen
Expected Publication Date: June 7, 2016
Goodreads Synopsis: A prehistoric fantasy—with allusions to Pride and Prejudice.
Hunting, gathering, and keeping his family safe—that’s the life seventeen-year-old Kol knows. Then bold, enigmatic Mya arrives from the south with her family, and Kol is captivated. He wants her to like and trust him, but any hopes of impressing her are ruined when he makes a careless—and nearly grave—mistake. However, there’s something more to Mya’s cool disdain…a history wrought with loss that comes to light when another clan arrives. With them is Lo, an enemy from Mya’s past who Mya swears has ulterior motives.
As Kol gets to know Lo, tensions between Mya and Lo escalate until violence erupts. Faced with shattering losses, Kol is forced to question every person he’s trusted. One thing is for sure: this was a war that Mya or Lo—Kol doesn’t know which—had been planning all along.
Why I am Looking Forward to This: Historical fiction mixed with fantasy…..yes please! The first thing that drew me to this book though, was the cover. The cover is so gorgeous and when I saw it I just had to read what it was about. It immediately went on my list once I read the synopsis. It sounds like it’s going to be a great historical fiction/fantasy and I get the feeling that some romance may be involved as well. I can’t wait for this one!
