From the Publisher
Editors Note Griffins are supposed to be extinct. So when Yukiko and her father are commanded to capture one for the murderous Shogun of the Shima Isles, they fear their lives are over. After disaster befalls the mission, Yukiko finds herself stranded in the wilderness with only the crippled griffin Buruu for company. Working together, the pair make a stand against the authorities, facing intrigue, betrayal and murder in the hope of seeing their homeland saved and Buruu flying again. The first installment of an exciting new fantasy series, Stormdancer is sure to electrify the growing numbers of steampunk fans as well as lovers of classic epic fantasy.With Stormdancer, Jay Kristoff presents the Shogunate of Shima, a stunningly original dystopian steampunk world.
Annotation Imaginatively starring a griffin instead of a dragon, this young adult dystopian steampunk novel is set in the grim Shima Empire, modeled after Japan. In a barren landscape due to the cultivation of the blood lotus, a plant that destroys the soil while providing precious seeds that fuel airships, the Lotus Guild is headed by a notoriously cruel shogun, Yoritomo-no-miya. When the Shogun charges 16-year-old Kitsune's father with the likely fruitless task of finding Buruu, a famous arashitora (griffin), she goes with him. After a series of missteps, Kitsune is stranded in the last wilderness with the angry, wounded beast. But her secret ability to communicate with animals slowly brings the pair together, preparing them for a war against the corrupt regime. With a glossary.
