What it's about: This is Jay Kristoff's first book in the Lotus War series. I must warn you that this is a very different book, but it's one of my top reads for 2012. Our heroine, Yukiko, faces an impossible task: catch a griffin for the Shogun with her father. Griffins are supposed to be extinct, which means there's more going on here. In a twisted turn of events Yukiko finds herself alone in the wilderness with a flightless griffin and a conspiracy that involves not only the Shogun, but her entire country.

Why you should read it: Japanese steampunk. Kristoff is the master of unique and intense plots and huge twists. This book has it all — and a nice little bow to tie it all up with. There are swords, action, friendship, a conspiracy, grief and hope. It's going on my "Amazing Reads" shelf, and I urge you to pick it up.
