Kinslayer Blog Tour: Spotlight, Dream Cast & Tour Giveaway

Welcome to our stop on the Kinslayer Blog tour. ^_^

(The Lotus War, #2)
By Jay Kristoff
The mad Shōgun Yoritomo has been assassinated by the Stormdancer Yukiko, and the threat of civil war looms over the Shima Imperium. The Lotus Guild conspires to renew the nation’s broken dynasty and crush the growing rebellion simultaneously – by endorsing a new Shōgun who desires nothing more than to see Yukiko dead.

Yukiko and the mighty thunder tiger Buruu have been cast in the role of heroes by the Kagé rebellion. But Yukiko herself is blinded by rage over her father’s death, and her ability to hear the thoughts of beasts is swelling beyond her power to control. Along with Buruu, Yukiko’s anchor is Kin, the rebel Guildsman who helped her escape from Yoritomo’s clutches. But Kin has his own secrets, and is haunted by visions of a future he’d rather die than see realized.

Kagé assassins lurk within the Shōgun’s palace, plotting to end the new dynasty before it begins. A waif from Kigen’s gutters begins a friendship that could undo the entire empire. A new enemy gathers its strength, readying to push the fracturing Shima imperium into a war it cannot hope to survive. And across raging oceans, amongst islands of black glass, Yukiko and Buruu will face foes no katana or talon can defeat.

The ghosts of a blood-stained past.

Dream Cast
When I was writing the book in my head, I imagined the Tiger Clan to be more Chinese in characteristics (they’re from the south) and the Kitsune as more Japanese (since they’re northerners):
Yukiko – Not sure. Maybe Kyoko Fukada?
Michi – Devon Aoki (if we had a time machine, she’s too old now. But she’s who I picture)
Daichi – Chow Yun Fat
Kaori – Gong Li (again, she’s too old now. But she’s who I visualize when writing)
Aisha – Zhang Ziyi
Kin – Teppei Koike
Hana – Chiaki Kuriyama (CRAZY 88!)
Yoshi – Tatsuya Fujiwara
Buruu – I’m not sure who could do Buruu’s voice. Someone really good at shouting.
