Waiting on Wednesday (17): Stormdancer


Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff
Publication Date: September 18, 2012
Series: The Lotus War #1


A DYING LAND 
The Shima Imperium verges on the brink of environmental collapse; an island nation once rich in tradition and myth, now decimated by clockwork industrialization and the machine-worshipers of the Lotus Guild. The skies are red as blood, the land is choked with toxic pollution, and the great spirit animals that once roamed its wilds have departed forever.
AN IMPOSSIBLE QUEST The hunters of Shima's imperial court are charged by their Shōgun to capture a thunder tiger – a legendary creature, half-eagle, half-tiger. But any fool knows the beasts have been extinct for more than a century, and the price of failing the Shōgun is death.
A HIDDEN GIFT Yukiko is a child of the Fox clan, possessed of a talent that if discovered, 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.
I'm so excited for this to come out. I kid you not, I think my heart stopped when I heard about this novel. And that cover. My heart stopped all over again, it's just too dead sexy to resist! Please leave me a comment below about what you think and leave a link so I can see what you're beautiful faces are waiting on this Wednesday!

Ohh great pick!! Seriously that cover is GORGEOUS! I requested this on LibraryThing's early reviewers but I'm definitely not expecting to win it! 15 copies available and 620+ requesting. Not good odds!

Not going to lie, this book sounds fantastic! The cover is so dark and creepy, and strangely inviting at the same time! And I seriously love that synopsis. I love a good dystopian read, and this book totally sounds like it's going to be an awesome one! It's definitely going on the TBR for me. Great pick!! =)
