Giveaway of Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff

Posted August 26, 2012 by Kara in Giveaway / 15 Comments

Time for another 5 star giveaway! I usually wait a little between review and when I actually do the giveaway, but since I loved this book SO MUCH, I just couldn’t wait and had to post it right away. This time I am giving away Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff. All year long I have been giving away books I have assigned a 5 star rating to. The books I have given away so far are: Five Flavors of Dumb, Behind the Beautiful Forevers, Shadows on the Moon, Inhale, Shadow and Bone, Girl in Translation, Insignia, The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, and NOW…Stormdancer

I received a copy of Stormdancer from Netgalley and I fell in love after the first 30 pages. From that point until the end, I was mesmerized and unable to put the book down. Whenever I had a moment to read, I was running back to Stormdancer. There is a very good chance that this book will be my favorite book of 2012. The majority of my blogging friends loved it, and so did I. This one is a winner with almost every reader I have talked to. And now YOU have a chance to own your own copy!

I am posting the blurb below if somehow you have missed out on hearing about this book.

Blurb: 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 forever.

AN IMPOSSIBLE QUEST
The hunters of Shima’s imperial court are charged by their Shōgun to capture a thunder tiger—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.

A SIXTEEN YEAR OLD GIRL
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 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.
