THE LAST STORMDANCER is a limited-edition, novella set 100 years before the events in Kristoff's Lotus Wars series, a dystopian, steampunk fantasy set in Japan. I was so excited to be one of the fortunate few to receive a copy!
The story is told from the point of view of Koh, an Arashitora (half eagle, half white tiger), more commonly called a thunder tiger. Koh relates the, here-to-for, unknown history of the Imperium which lead up to Yukiko, the heroine of STORMDANCER (2012) and KINSLAYER (2013).
A descriptive, atmospheric and moving introduction to the story behind the Lotus Wars.
