Stormdancer (The Lotus War Book One)

Stormdancer  - Jay Kristoff Steampunk samurai postapocalyptic Japan, downloaded and read on my Nook. With a kickass female hero and some really good, messy, found-family dynamics. All the awesomeness of a fast-paced superhero movie with all the lyricism of a marvelous book and the added bonus of the Japanese setting. The steampunk aestethetic isn't always my thing, because some books get all into describing the minutiae of the clockwork/etc., but here, the integration was seamless.One of the best new fantasy books I've read in a while.
