Stormdancer is the first in an epic new fantasy series,
introducing an unforgettable heroine and a stunningly
original dystopian steampunk world with a flavor of feudal
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. When hunters of
Shima's imperial court are charged by their Shōgun to
capture a legendary griffin, they fear their lives are over.
Any fool knows the beasts have been extinct for more than a
century, and the price of failing the Shōgun is death.
Accompanying her father on the Shōgunâ€™s hunt, the girl
Yukiko finds herself stranded: a young woman alone in
Shimaâ€™s last wilderness, with only a furious, crippled
griffin 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.
