Waiting on Wednesday - Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights forthcoming releases which we're particularly excited about and looking forward to.



Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh

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.

I don't think I can remember when I last read a prehistoric fantasy. In fact, I'm pretty sure I've never ever read one. Woah. That needs to be remedied soon, and this book looks like a great place to start!

  7. I read fantasy all of the time. I LOVE fantasy. I didn't realize this was fantasy at first. That cover is gorgeous though. And pre-historic fantasy? OH MY GOSH SIGN ME UP.
