Today’s Teaser Tuesday: Ivory and Bone

Ivory and Bone by Julie EshbaughTitle: Ivory and Bone
Author: Julie Eshbaugh
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: June 7, 2016

Summary (from Goodreads):

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 a 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.

    I tried with this one, a few times, but I could never get into it. I think it is a book that needs to be read when the reader is in a certain type of mood. Apparently, I was not in the right one. But I hope you continue to enjoy it!

      I saw your GR update and I was a little bit worried because our tastes are quite similar. I will admit that this book does take some getting used to. The writing style is definitely one that is different. I hope that you get to reading it again some day. 🙂

    This sounds like something out of my comfort zone. I might pick this up or not (depends on what my mood for reading is, really) but this has definitely caught my interest. I’m glad you’re liking it, great teaser!
