AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'As civil war sweeps across the Shima Imperium, the Lotus Guild unleashes their deadliest creation-a mechanical goliath, intended to unite the shattered Empire under a yoke of fear. Yukiko and Buruu are forced to take leadership of the rebellion, gathering new allies and old friends. But the ghosts of Buruu's past stand between them and the army they need, and Kin's betrayal has destroyed all trust among their allies. When a new foe joins the war, it will be all the pair can do to muster the strength to fight, let alone win. And as the earth splits asunder, as armies destroy each other for rule over an empire of lifeless ash and the final secret about blood lotus is revealed, the people of Shima will learn one last, horrifying truth.'

Notes

  • Steampunk Note: Though the novels in this series do not engage heavily with steampunk's primary cultural locus (nineteenth century English society), and the Japanese-inspired setting would often associate it with related but separate styles, such as silkpunk, we would nevertheless categorise it as steampunk. Attention should be given to the setting of a tyrannical society in which clockwork-based mechanical invention combines with pollution and disease to create a unique dystopia, remeniscent of steampunk conventions established with Gibson and Sterling's The Difference Engine.
