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
AN IMPOSSIBLE QUEST
hunters of Shima's imperial court are charged by their
Shōgun to capture a thunder tiger â€“ 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.
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 Shōgunâ€™s
hunt, she finds herself stranded: a young woman alone in
Shimaâ€™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 heâ€™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.
