In the riveting sequel to Ivory and Bone--the YA fantasy novel that New York Times bestselling author Amie Kaufman described as having a "richly crafted world of life-and-death stakes"--the story shifts to Mya's viewpoint as vengeful adversaries force her to flee the life she once knew. After surviving the battle that erupted after Lo and the Bosha clan attacked, now Mya is looking ahead to her future with Kol. All the things that once felt so uncertain to her are finally falling into place. But the same night as Kol and Mya's betrothal announcement, Mya's brother Chev reveals his plan to marry their youngest sister, Lees, to his friend Morsk. The only way to avoid this terrible turn of events, Morsk informs Mya when he corners her later, is for Mya to take Lees' place and marry him herself. Rejecting Morsk's offer, and in an effort to protect her sister, Mya whisks Lees away to a secret island until things back home blow over. Mya soon realizes she's been followed, however. Even worse, lurking deep in the recesses of this dangerous place are rivals from Mya's past whose thirst for revenge exceeds all reason. With the lives of her loved ones resting on her shoulders, Mya must make a move before the enemies of her past become the undoing of her future.… (lisätietoja)

We should just rename this "how many times can we pretend to try to kill off Kol before Mya finally says the L word?" I mean it was thrilling in the same way as a thriller movie is where you know that either everyone is going to die leaving the two characters that end up being lovers as the sole survivors or only those characters you don't really care about get killed off giving everyone a convenient happily ever after. After the second attempt on his life, I was just bored.

It's been about a year since the events of Ivory and Bone. Mya is off to become betrothed to Kol along with her sister Seeri who also has her heart set on becoming betrothed to Pek. A sad event takes place immediately upon their arrival that put a damper on the happy occasion. Once the official arrangements of betrothals are set Mala makes an offhanded comment about possibly setting Lees aside for her youngest son when Chev breaks the news that he's unwilling to allow Seeri and Pek's future child to become the next high chief so it's up to Lees to produce the heir with his friend Morsk. Mya can't let Lees run away with Rune so she takes his directions towards an island and sets off to hide her sister away until Chev can come up with a compromise.

On the uninhabited island, the sisters find a girl named Noni who has just lost her mother after running away from an abusive father. Together they promise to take care of each other and that's going to come in handy when Mya's enemies chase after them in their vulnerable state.

Honestly, it wasn't that bad but I keep forgetting this is more of a romance novel. There are many times where Mya longs to be with Kol, she wants to touch Kol, she wants him to press his lips on hers, she looks after Kol to make sure he's okay, she rescues Kol...Yep all about Kol. It's cute but it doesn't leave the best impression in my opinion. Or maybe it does when you're into that kind of thing. Then there's the whole situation about who is willing to let go of their clan. If I do recall in Ivory and Bone, Kol pressed his dad about how Pek was much better suited to be the clan leader but I guess he forgot about that conversation in this book. Brownie points for remembering Mya's characterization though, she was awful the first book and she didn't change. She was however much more sympathetic as well as caring when it mattered the most. My only question remains is why Kol likes her so much. He was hella cute with his declarations of love but Mya...not so much.

The villains are still the same, the conflicts are basically the same but personally, I would have liked to have read this book as a standalone or something and pretend the first one didn't exist. Or the author should've merged the book ideas into one and have both points of view. That being said I will admit that I liked this one more than the first. ( )

Kol and Mya are back in this prehistoric novel about love, betrayal, and power. After the war of the clans. Mya and Kol's clans are willing to unite through the marriage of of siblings. This works out in everyone's favor until Morsk, a man from Mya's clan demands to be betrothed on one of Mya's sisters. In an effort to thwart this plan, Mya and her sister run away promoting a search for the siblings. Though they try to hide away as best as they can, nothing can stop human drama.

After reading the first novel, I found this one to be much less enthralling. It seemed as though the same threats were used. "Your clan need this!" "Do it because I'm a man and I'm telling you to!" "But this is how we keep the clans alive!" okay no, you've been around longer than that. People must know that there are other ways around unwanted marriage. Plus, women were held in high regard in the first novel, why did that change so drastically in this one? I really enjoyed the first one and I'm a little disappointed at the lack of forethought in this one. ( )
