Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
I’ve been so busy, I haven’t even been thinking about Waiting on Wednesday, but I really want to get back to promoting my favorites from my TBR. This week involves some EXTREME cover-love, and I can’t wait to share it. With a release date of June 14th, 2016, from HarperCollins, and written by the lovely and talented Julie Eshbaugh, here’s:
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.
WHY I’M WAITING:
Ooh, I just can’t wait for this! A new flavor of historical fiction with a twist, and such a compelling summary! AND THERE MIGHT BE……*drumroll*…..MAMMOTHS. CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE? A YA WITH A MAMMOTH HUNT? Watch this totally be after mammoths, and this will all be absolutely wrong. A GIRL CAN DREAM. Even if there’s not, this whole idea is just…so unique to YA, and a very different sort of literature than what we usually see. I simply cannot emphasize enough how excited I am for this, and honestly, a lot of it is from the cover alone. I know this is a pretty short WHY, but I think it’s enough. These books are really going to hit a specific audience, and obviously I’m one of those people!
