Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh

Exquisitely written, ferocious, and haunting. Don't miss this one! -Sarah J. Maas, New York Times bestselling author of the Throne of Glass series Julie Eshbaugh is a unique new voice with talent enough for a whole team of writers. I'm still under the spell of her storytelling. -Amie Kaufman, New York Times bestselling co-author of Illuminae and These Broken Stars Loosely inspired by Pride and Prejudice, Ivory and Bone is an enthralling tale of high-stakes survival, blinding betrayal, and star-crossed love. 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 trust him, but any hopes of impressing her are ruined when he makes a careless-and nearly grave-mistake. What Kol doesn't know is that underneath Mya's cool disdain is 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 grows closer to 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. With riveting action and illustrative prose that leaps from the page, Julie Eshbaugh will have readers mesmerized and thirsty for more...So don't miss the sequel, Obsidian and Stars.
