Expected publication: June 14th 2016
Genres: Fantasy; Historical; Young Adult
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.
A prehistoric fantasy?! Sign me up! I don’t need to know anything else. But… you did mention Pride and Prejudice. A prehistoric fantasy with a nod to Pride and Prejudice?! Well, you’ve certainly got my attention! Pride and Prejudice is one of my favourite books of all-time... so no pressure, or anything! Hopefully it’s awesome.
What do you think? Have you read any prehistoric fantasy’s before? Personally, I haven’t, but if you have, I’d love to get some recommendations.
Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Reading!
