Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB at Books and A Beat
This week’s Teaser Tuesday is for Ivory and Bone by Julie Eshbaugh!
“It’s odd, I think, how the thing you love most in a person can also be the thing you sometimes wish you could change”
“Some people can see things with their hearts. Others need to see them with their eyes.”
“There is strong danger in a person who can create such powerful deceit they can no longer distinguish their own lies from the truth.”
Summary from Goodreads:
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.
