News: Stormdancer (The Lotus Wars Book 1) Release Date

“Catch the griffin, Catch the griffin”

Author: Jay Kristoff

Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Romance, Age: YA+

Released: 13th September 2012, 13th October 2012 (UK version)

This book seems like it has all the cool boxes checked: cool cover, cool name, cool concept. Somewhat of a hybrid of Tales of the Otori, and How to Train Your Dragon, this story promises something special.

There are two release dates and two covers for this. The Tor version is the one with the light cover, and is released a whole month before the Thomas Dunne Books version.


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 a crippled griffin called Buruu for company. Working together, the pair makes a stand against the authorities, facing intrigue, betrayal and murder in the hope of seeing their homeland saved and Buruu fly again. The first instalment of an exciting new epic fantasy series, “Stormdancer” is sure to electrify the growing numbers of steampunk fans as well as lovers of classic fantasy.


Available on their respective released dates, both books have the RRP of £17.99. That’s pretty expensive for a book with around 350 pages!
