    It s not often I say this but this sequel was way way way better than the first book It s based in Mya s pov and it made literally all the difference There was so much character depth in this one than in the first, found myself understanding why the characters were acting a certain way and why it mattered I loved the relationships between Mya and her sisters, and brother and felt it was fleshed out Though I liked the relationship I didn t like her brother Chev, he kept talking of putting the clan first and sure that sounds great as long as it doesn t make you a horrible person Also his friend, enemy at the beginning, I never felt he was actually redeemed from his actions becausejerk The romantic moments were super cute though and I m ended up happy with the ending overall Kol spent most of the book sickly but I didn t really care, compared to Mya he s dull I will say there were a whole lot of deaths in this book and I won t spoil them I will say I didn t care I know that sounds awful especially when you read it and find out who died I just wasn t attached to the characters and didn t like some of them Mostly it was a fun book, I liked the story, easy to read through without emotional attachments that make some books to heavy I still like the prehistoric elements and find it different looking at like before civilization and guns, making due with the ability of your own hands.

    The stars in the obsidian sky may be beautiful, but they show the past, not the future.Obsidian and Stars was another brilliant story in this duology I am sad to leave this fantastical world behind, but I am in love with how both stories were a perfect balance to each other In Ivory and Bone we are told the story from Kol s perspective, and the fascinating part is we are listening to him tell the story of how he first met Mya to her for the majority of the timeline In Obsidian and Stars, we are moved forward in the timeline and now experience a new story from Mya s POV Mya isn t telling us the story like Kol did, which I loved, but I still devoured every page This is just one part of what makes these books so original, but also that it is technically prehistoric fiction but written in the most poetic, contemporary voice.Mya had a very mysterious and closed off attitude in book one, so I was so curious to see how I would feel about her now From the very beginning you can still feel her struggle of reconciling her grudges while knowing she was in love with Kol Mya is determined and selfless She would do anything for her family and her clan She has put them above herself all her life, and now when she finally wants something for her, she again puts it all on the line in hopes of bettering her family.I absolutely love Kol, he is passionate and smart My heart was so heavy for him He knew Mya was the one for him, but he never expected to deal with all this intensity at the start of their budding relationship Kol wears his emotions on his sleeve and is the complete foil to a closed off Mya I hate that he has been dealing with so much love and loss, but it seems this is the way of life for these clans.Without giving away too much, I can tell you that this book is bloody There are epic battles with mammoths, with clans, with the elements, and within themselves I couldn t stop reading, the exciting plot combined with the most beautiful prose As much as I am sad to let these characters go, I feel complete after finishing Obsidian and Stars.This is truly an epic romance, set in prehistoric times, where life and death is the core component, but you have to remember that love conquers all I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves an alluring world filled with elegant writing.

    I am completely captivated by the setting of these books It is so original I ve never read, or even heard of, another book set during this time period, and I am so impressed by the level of creativity that Julie displays not only in the premise of the story, but in the execution of it as well.When I first reviewed Ivory and Bone, the first book in the series, I gave it a four star rating After finishing Obsidian and Stars though, I went back and bumped it up to a five star, because in reading this book, I feel like I was better able to grasp the real brilliance of the first book as well.Julie has such different approaches to the telling of each story In Ivory and Bone, Kol narrates the story using second person pronouns This isn t something you see done often in literature, and it is something that has to be done with such skill in order to pull readers in, but in that book it truly feels like Kol is telling us a story, bringing it to life and making readers feel as if they are Mya It s absolutely beautiful and so impressive.In Obsidian and Stars, the POV switches, and we get to see this story from Mya s point of view I very much enjoyed reading from her perspective Mya is so intelligent, and she exhibits such strength of body, mind, and soul throughout the story She is just a phenomenal female lead And while Julie did not use the second person pronouns in Obsidian and Stars that I so enjoyed in Ivory and Bone, she has taken a plot driven approach to this novel that I enjoyed just as much This book is action packed There is blood, and tragedy, and romance, and it moves at a much faster pace than the first book did I truly love them both for different reasons.One of the really neat things about these books is that they re set in a prehistoric time period, and there are so many elements that do feel so true to the era But at the same time, there is this overarching tone to them that very much reads like a Regency romance and is just so much fun.Julie exhibits such skill in these books I love to see the different writing techniques she employs to craft these stories, and I cannot wait to see what she has in store for us in the future
