Title: "Ivory and Bone"
Author: Julie Eshbaugh
Expected Publication: June 7, 2016
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.
This book sounds really fascinating with it being set in prehistoric times. I've never heard of any books, let alone YA, that are set in that era. So I think that will be a really interesting setting. However, I've never read Pride and Prejudice, nor have I seen the movie, so I feel like I should probably look it up on CliffsNotes or something. I've seen some mixed reviews, but I'm excited non-the-less!
