Review: Stormdancer

Stormdancer Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Like Amie Kaufman's These Broken Stars, this book from one of the co-authors of Illuminae doesn't quite live up to that lofty standard for me, but this book has no problem delivering a most unique adventure. I don't think I've seen Japanese culture and steampunk dystopian blended quite so smoothly, except maybe in Howl's Moving Castle, which, while murder on the feels at times, is a walk in the park compared to the high stakes and action Kristoff offers up here. It's just too bad that it's so relatively short, because it makes it only too easy to tear through this book in less than a day.
