STORMDANCER by Jay Kristoff
A DYING LAND
The Shima Imperium is verging on the brink of environmental collapse; ruined by clockwork industrialization and the machine-worshippers of the Lotus Guild. The land is choked with pollution, animal life ravaged by mass extinctions.
AN IMPOSSIBLE QUEST
The hunters of Shima’s imperial court are commanded to capture a griffin by their Shōgun. But any fool knows the beasts have been extinct for a century, and the price for failing the Shōgun is death.
A SIXTEEN YEAR OLD GIRL
Yukiko is a child of the Fox clan, possessed of a power that would see her executed by the Lotus Guild. Accompanying her father on the Shōgun’s hunt, she finds herself stranded in Shima’s last wilderness with only a crippled griffin for company. Even though she can hear his thoughts, even though she saved his life, all she knows for certain is he’d rather see her dead than help her.
But together, the pair will form an indomitable friendship, and rise to challenge the might of an empire.
