STORMDANCER

A DYING LAND 

The Shima Imperium is verging on the brink of environmental collapse; decimated by clockwork industrialization and the machine-worshippers of the Lotus Guild. The skies are red as blood, land choked with toxic pollution, wildlife ravaged by mass extinctions.

AN IMPOSSIBLE QUEST
AWESOME!!!!! US COVER ..YES PLEEASSE!!

The hunters of the imperial court are charged by their Shōgun to capture a thunder tiger—a legendary beast, half-eagle, half-tiger. But any fool knows thunder tigers have been extinct for more than a century, and the price of failing the Shōgun is death.

A SIXTEEN YEAR OLD GIRL

Yukiko is a child of the Fox clan, possessed of a hidden gift that would see her executed by the Lotus Guild. Accompanying her father on the Shōgun’s hunt, she finds herself stranded: a young woman alone in Shima’s last wilderness, with only a furious, crippled thunder tiger 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.

This cover alone is just BEAUTIFUL artwork, never lone knowing we have that to look forward to. I am rather bouncy for it!! If I see anything resembling these genres I tag them on tbr on Goodreads so I don't forget as loads of books swimming in my vision everyday, the brain can only retain so much:D:D

  2. I have a fascination with Samurai inspired books and I saw this from another blogger a couple of weeks ago and immediately added it to my TBR.
