[Aus] Cover Reveal : Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff

30 May 2012

HEYY EVERYONE<333 Did you all miss me? heheee :) Sorry for not posting for the last two weeks; I had some very important exams/speeches/assignments etc. to do (and they all count towards my HSC soo...I decided I had better put some effort :D) Unfortunately, spending so much time studying meant I neglected my reading pile :( BUT most of my exams are done now (WOOHOO) and though I still have a few more coming up, they're all spread out over the next few weeks, which means, I HAVE TIME TO READ AND BLOG :D

Anyway, I'm here to reveal the AUS cover of STORMDANCER by Jay Kristoff!

Published by Pan Macmillan Australia
on 21st August 2012 


The Shima Imperium is verging on the brink of environmental collapse; decimated by 
clockwork industrialization and the machine-worshippers of the Lotus Guild. The skies are red 
as blood, land choked with toxic pollution, wildlife ravaged by mass extinctions.
The hunters of the imperial court are charged by their Shōgun to capture a thunder tiger – a 
legendary beast, half-eagle, half-tiger. But any fool knows thunder tigers 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 hidden gift that 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

It's the same as the UK cover, as I'm sure you've all realised :) I'm actually in love with BOTH the UK/AUS and US covers :) So, my plan is to purchase copies of both versions and then collect the rest of the series and have them ALL on my shelf :) hehee <3
