Debut author Julie Eshbaugh’s sweeping prehistoric fantasy—with allusions to Pride and Prejudice—will enthrall readers with high-stakes survival, blinding betrayal, and star-crossed love. 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. With riveting action and illustrative prose that leaps from the page, newcomer Julie Eshbaugh will have readers mesmerized.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Exquisitely written, ferocious, and haunting.” Sarah J. Maas, New York Times bestselling author
“Hands down the most unique debut YA novel of the year.” PasteMagazine.com
“An exciting and unusual adventure with an emphasis on the power of storytelling, set in a prehistoric past.” Publishers Weekly
“Eshbaugh packs her debut with a classic love triangle, feuding clans, a well-drawn prehistoric setting.” School Library Journal
“A spare yet memorable account of the interpersonal and interclan politics of people living during a much earlier time.” Booklist
“Portrays Neolithic culture with grace and authenticity…An involving story solidly told, doing credit to its inspiration and sources.” Kirkus Reviews
“Evoke[s] the desperation, loyalty, and determination that a small group like this would have likely felt.” Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“Kol’s sensitivities, insecurities, and pride are unfolded by Michael Curran–Dorsano as the young man tells the story herein to a young woman who also play a critical role in their future, The audiobook format is particularly well suited to the second-person point of view. Curran–Dorsano adopts the earnest tone of a young man who is aware of his role in the clan’s future and is anxious to prove himself. His pace is quick, with an air of impatience at times and a halting reluctance at others.” AudioFile
