Review: Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff


The first in The Lotus Wars trilogy, Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff is the Japanese steampunk story of Yukiko who is tasked with finding a thought-to-be-extinct griffin in a deteriorating world run by the evil Shogun.

The concept and the world are completely different to anything I’ve read before, but the story itself felt very similar. I did enjoy it, I simply felt like I’d seen it all before. Also, the relationships didn’t feel real – you were told Kin was her good friend, and that she liked Hiro without really being shown it was true.

The sequel Kinslayer is out in September, and I’ll be happy with waiting for it to appear in the library.
