Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—Seventeen-year-old Kol is the oldest son of the High Elder of his clan, and while he and his brother are of marrying age, there are no marriageable women in their clan. The rhythm of Kol's hunter/gatherer life changes, however, when a group from the clan to the south visit to build an alliance—with two eligible unmarried women in their party. Mya, also 17, is beautiful and severe, and she and Kol begin a rocky acquaintance when she saves him from a charging saber-tooth while on a mammoth hunt. Despite his acts of gratitude, Kol cannot read or anticipate Mya's feelings, which makes his confusion about his own feelings even more complex. When Lo, a woman from the clan to the north, arrives in Kol's village with a dark intent, the plot becomes all the more complicated. Eshbaugh packs her debut with a classic love triangle, feuding clans, a well-drawn prehistoric setting, and a handful of fan fiction elements that will appeal to teens. VERDICT Buy this Stone Age, gender-flipped take on Pride and Prejudice if your readers are on the lookout for something compellingly out of the ordinary.—Amy Koester, Learning Experiences Department, Skokie Public Library, IL

Review

“Julie Eshbaugh is a unique new voice with talent enough for a whole team of writers. Ivory and Bone transported me to a richly crafted world of life-and-death stakes, and I’m still under the spell of her storytelling.” (Amie Kaufman, New York Times bestselling co-author of Illuminae and These Broken Stars)

“Exquisitely written, ferocious, and haunting--what a breath of fresh air! Ivory and Bone is unlike anything I’ve ever read. Don’t miss this one!” (Sarah J. Maas, New York Times bestselling author of the Throne of Glass series)

“Debut author Eshbaugh portrays Neolithic culture with grace and authenticity. This is an involving story solidly told, doing credit to its inspiration and sources.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Eshbaugh debuts with an exciting and unusual adventure with emphasis on the power of storytelling.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Eshbaugh creates a spare yet memorable account of the interpersonal and interclan politics. There is much to value here.” (ALA Booklist)

“Eshbaugh packs her debut with a classic love triangle, feuding clans, a well-drawn prehistoric setting, and a handful of fan fiction elements that will appeal to teens. Compellingly out of the ordinary.” (School Library Journal)

“The Ice Age setting is richly described, and the sometimes desperate struggle for food and survival is palpable. Highly recommended; readers will be anxiously awaiting the next book in the series.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA))

“There is clear authenticity in the descriptions, and they evoke the desperation, loyalty, and determination that a small group like this would have likely felt.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

“Hands down the most unique debut YA novel of the year.” (PasteMagazine.com)
