Waiting on Wednesday [#4]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine where we get to feature an up-and-coming release. Which is of course always terribly exciting and incredibly difficult to just pick one book! Nonetheless, it’s a great way to find out about new books and a good motive to go a-hunting all over Goodreads to find some new ones yourself. Which is what I’ve done.


This week I’m waiting on . . .

Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh


Release Date: 14th June 2016
Publisher: HarperTeen
Pages: 384 {hardback}

// PRE-ORDER //Ivory and Bone

Goodreads Summary

The only life seventeen-year-old Kol knows is hunting at the foot of the Great Ice with his brothers. But food is becoming scarce, and without another clan to align with, Kol, his family, and their entire group are facing an uncertain future.

Traveling from the south, Mya and her family arrive at Kol’s camp with a trail of hurt and loss behind them, and hope for a new beginning. When Kol meets Mya, her strength, independence, and beauty instantly captivate him, igniting a desire for much more than survival.

Then on a hunt, Kol makes a grave mistake that jeopardizes the relationship that he and Mya have only just started to build. Mya was guarded to begin with—and for good reason—but no apology or gesture is enough for her to forgive him. Soon after, another clan arrives on their shores. And when Mya spots Lo, a daughter of this new clan, her anger intensifies, adding to the already simmering tension between families. After befriending Lo, Kol learns of a dark history between Lo and Mya that is rooted in the tangle of their pasts.

When violence erupts, Kol is forced to choose between fighting alongside Mya or trusting Lo’s claims. And when things quickly turn deadly, it becomes clear that this was a war that one of them had been planning all along.

So apart from a very long summary on Goodreads I think this sounds fabulous. It’s set forever-ago in the Ice Ages (I think, it doesn’t actually say) and just all round sounds like a lot of fun. I haven’t read a whole lot of fantasy set so far in the past and let’s not even get me started on the yes-ness of this cover. Even though it comes out in June which is still a little way off I’m really excited and can’t wait for its release.

What are you waiting on?
