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.

Why We’re Waiting On It

Jamie has an ARC of this one and read it during April as part of ARC April and really enjoyed it. It is written in second person which made it really unique. She’s really excited to have Dani read it so they can talk about it together! Dani preordered it, and she can’t wait for her beautiful hardcover to arrive so it can be united with the gorgeous preorder exclusive bookmark!!!

  1. OOHHH second person?? I don’t think I’ve ever read a book with second person? Third and first, yes, but second?? what the what?? How does that even SOUND? Hm… That cover is GORGEOUS! I’ll admit so I definitely agree with you! <3

    • Yes! It is as though Kol, the main character, is telling you the reader the story! I thought it was very interesting and different to do it this way! 🙂 Hope you like it!
