"Waiting On" Wednesday (4): Stormdancer

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating. 

US Cover
Book: Stormdancer (The Lotus Wars #1) by Jay Kristoff
Publication Date: September 18, 2012
Publisher: Thomas Dunne Books

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.

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.

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. - Goodreads

It seems like September is the new 'it' month and if you haven't even heard of this book, shame on you. Kidding! I have been pining for this book for as long as I can remember. When the UK cover came out I was like mesmerized by the whole concept of the look but when the US cover was revealed I was ready to trade anything just to have a copy of Stormdancer. Stormdancer sounds so goooood. Japanese Steampunk? I mean, c'mon I haven't even read any steampunk yet but hearing that makes me want to poke my eyes out just to stop myself from peeing in my pants. It does really help too that Jay Kristoff has an aura of a god or something.
