#BookReview: Ivory and Bone (Ivory and Bone #1) by Julie Eshbaugh @youngadultbc ‏via @cursedreader @EndyOchita


This month's book is one that Jessica chose!  And I have to say that at this point I am kinda mad that I did.  I had so many issues with this book.  But why not join us today at 5pm at the Winter Haven Library to check out our discussion and join in!!! 


About the Book:

Two clans. Only one will survive.

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.

About the Author:


Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: This book is in 2nd person and well that just never works out for ua.  We hate it!!! 

Check out author's other books? Yes (as long as its not in 2nd person) 
Recommend this book? If you dont mind it being in 2nd person and not researched well. Than give it a try. 

Notes and Opinions:  This is going to be a very short review.  This one was written in 2nd person which is something that never works out for me and Endy!  We kinda hate them right off the bat. But we tried giving this one the benifit of the doubt but within 50 pages we were just bored out of our minds.  The other issue was that this book didn't seem reaserched well.  

Go Into This One Knowing: 2nd person, boring!!
