    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. I...

    I really liked Ivory and Bone so I was really excited to read the next book and find out what happened in the next installment. And this was just a good a piece of historical fiction, full of drama and adventure. My favorite thing about this book was my favorite thing about the the ...

    I am so fortunate to have received an ARC of this amazing book ahead of the presses! Eshbaugh completely floored me with the first installment of this series, and I knew I had a lot to look forward to with the second book. I award this book 4.5 stars. Because the first book ended so...

    My biggest issue with this book was: it was completely unnecessary. It felt like the author just added to Ivory And Bone because she wasn't ready to say goodbye to the world and the characters. However, in choosing to keep writing the series, she created problems that were too flimsy, ...

    I absolutely love Mya and how awesomely independent and fierce and badass she is, but still learning to be vulnerable through her love for Kol (whom she is constantly having to save from imminent peril). The characters made this book for me. ...

    See my full review and much more on my blog KissinBlueKaren I have to give my hats off to Julie Eshbaugh for writing such tense fight scenes wrapped into such beautiful prose. This story is almost non-stop adventure right from the beginning. Every battle has authentic touches that...

    I listened to this on audio and I really don't think that format suited it. Or at least the narrator didn't do it any favors. It was narrated by Suzanne Elise Freeman and while her dialogue was fine, she read the long stretches of descriptions in a pretty lifeless way that didn't engag...

    Did I love this as much as book one? Yes. Actually I did. I didn't think this could stand up to the tense, romantic, historically-rich Ivory and Bone, but this book is every bit as wonderful. One of my favourite things is how different the action scenes are to any other book I've re...

    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 i...

    [2.5 stars] If you caught my recent review of Ivory and Bone, you?ll remember me saying I really enjoyed the book, but had a few issues with the logistics feeling a bit forced. Eshbaugh was modeling the story after Pride and Prejudice, trying to follow the same basic storyline. My ho...

    The definition of the word ?understanding? on every dictionary I find was not as I was expecting and so as I understood the meaning of it. There are different explanations on how a person understands simple or complex things and it gives different interpretation from another person...

    No spoilers in this review! I give it 4 stars. I love re-visiting characters in which I?ve witnessed growth and development. It?s why I love to read series, and this is definitely the case with Kol and Mya, our two mains in this book. They have more growing to do in Obsidian and St...

    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 more character depth in this one than in the first, found myself understanding why the characters were acting a cert...

    Ever since Luke Taylor introduced me to Ivory and Bone #1, I've been waiting for the second to be published. And I saw it for sale here in Halifax, so I was really excited! Mya's adventures take a turn for the dramatic and gripping when she discovers that she might have to marry someon...

    True Rating 4.5 stars! Obsidian and Stars is the second book in the Ivory and Bone series. I did enjoy the first book, Ivory and Bone, but this book was much more enjoyable to me. The way the story is written is beautiful and detailed. The pacing is of a slower nature but I was okay...

    As a sequel to ivory and bone, obsidian and Stars keeps the same pace, emotion, and action. Julie Eshbaugh definitely has a new fan! I highly recommend both of these books to anyone who wants to read a genre that might not be their usual taste... I assure you this author will be. ...

    I'd like to start off by saying that I loved the first book of this series. The second book was also very well written, but some of the subplots were a bit lack luster for me. The second book took on a slightly more "Pride & Prejudice" tone than the first one did and I felt as thou...
