Sinossi

As a child, Asha was poisoned by a dragon and found she could hear the souls of all living things. Decades later, she uses her strange gift and her training as an herbalist to care for people possessed by ghosts, poisoned by legendary beasts, and tortured by the cruel doctors from the east.

For years she has traveled alone, but a chance encounter in the forest gives her two companions, a blind nun named Priya and a sleepy mongoose called Jagdish. Together they heal the sick, save the lost, and solve ancient riddles. But when she journeys into the west, Asha discovers that there are fates worse than death and there are human monsters that can only be defeated by a woman with the strength of a dragon.

Welcome to the world of AETHERIUM, where wondrous machines sail the seas and the skies, enormous beasts roam the earth, and the restless dead whisper to the living. Similar to our own world in the sixteenth century, AETHERIUM explores a reality in which many of the megafauna did not die out, including terror birds and saber-toothed cats, and where a devastating Ice Age continues to ravage Europe while African queens rule over the most advanced nations in the world. But strangest of all may be the science of controlling the souls of the dead using a golden metal with many names: sunsteel, orichalcum, and... AETHERIUM!

HASH(0x9c3ffc48) su 5 stelle Treat Yourself To This Unusual Delight 24 agosto 2012
Di Heather Bannon - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
Throw your history book out the window, because Joseph Robert Lewis has rewritten it with fantastical magic and superb prose!

Asha, the kick ass heroine!
In this book we meet the most awesome character, Asha, sort of like Cain from the TV show Kung Fu but only if he were tougher, still in the Orient and a chick! We meet Asha as she wanders through the land, helping those she can, but seemingly directionless in her wanderings. She comes upon a sort of Buddhist nun, asleep in and literally enmeshed with the secluded forest around her. When she frees the nun, Asha gains a traveling companion and an interesting counter point to her dark and brooding nature.

As we learn more about Asha and her past, we realize she's traveling with a purpose, to avenge herself on the evil man who calls himself a healer but is little more than a mad scientist spreading destruction and death in his wake.

The World As We Know It
I adored the world building in this book! Starting off with the premise of Earth and then taking a sort of alternate reality view of it, Joseph Robert Lewis crafts a world unlike one I've ever read. Part mythology, part fantasy, with even a hint of Steampunk, the Other Earth saga is set in a richly conceived and lushly described landscape. I loved the allusions, in both name and story, that Lewis weaves into Asha's story and those of the people she meets. With hints of Homer's Odyssey and the Bhagavad Gita juxtaposed against early technology and elements of fantasy, Lewis makes this unusual mix work. It's ornate and absolutely fascinating.

First Things Last
My only complaint is that I picked this series up near the end. While this book does stand on it's own, I'm the sort of reader who enjoys knowing all the back history and to do that, I really would have needed to the previous six books. It's a great introduction to the world, but for those, like me, who enjoy following the linear arc of a storyline, you may prefer to do yourself the favor of starting with The Burning Sky, Book One of the Halcyon Series, the first of three series in the Other Earth saga.

Bottom Line
Amazing fantasy and historical fiction rolled up into one, The Dragon and the Lotus is a treat not to be missed!

HASH(0x9c9fc588) su 5 stelle One of my favorites! 13 dicembre 2011

I do love this book. It's different from the other books I've read by this author. The pacing is a bit slower, but I really enjoy that. If gives the reader time in this exotic world that is brought to life through wonderful descriptions and interesting characters.

The world presented is one that feels familiar and yet at the same time not. It's more than just being set on the other side of the Earth. Smoothly planted details emerge that tie it into the author's Other Earth Series.

Honestly a very interesting story. It's easy to read it too quickly, but it's also easy to read again.

HASH(0x9dc82d10) su 5 stelle An immersive read in a fascinating world 22 ottobre 2011
Di Aubra - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
The Dragon and the Lotus is a tasty mix of historical fiction and fantasy, with just a touch of steampunk for flavor. I started reading it sort of idly on my lunch break, thinking it would be a pleasant way to pass the time. In reality, I spent the rest of the afternoon counting the minutes until I could go home and finish it. Each adventure the main characters get tangled up in is unexpected and well-balanced, set in a world so rich that I was continuously and pleasantly surprised by each new turn of events.

A fast, entrancing read that definitely left me hoping for more.

HASH(0x9ec862c0) su 5 stelle Good Old Fashion Fable 20 novembre 2013
Di Demonite - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
I haven't ever read anything else from this author before but I will probably will now. I really enjoyed how the author took our world from back when and changed just enough to essentially create a whole new world. I really enjoyed the characters and thought this book read as more of a classic fable then a novel. As someone who loves mythologies and fables I really enjoyed this read and am looking forward to the next book I read from him.

HASH(0x9d450348) su 5 stelle Review of The Dragon and The Lotus 15 ottobre 2011
Di AimeeKay - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
Yay!! Another novel in the "Other Earth" series!!! The Dragon and The Lotus follows a slightly different path than the previous Other Earth books. First, instead of the story taking place over a few days, it takes place over years. Second, instead of taking place in and around the more technologically oriented areas, such as Marrakesh, it takes place far to the East. So far away that the railroads haven't even reached yet. However the mysterious sun steal has. But in the land of Ming, and in the hands of Asha especially, it has become a tool for healing instead of a weapon for stealing men's souls.
Okay, sorry started sounding like the back of a book for a minute. Even though I could go on like that for pages, cause it really is that good.
I really liked this one. The Dragon and The Lotus is different from the Halcyon novels. Less tech more magic. The story takes place over years not days and as I said before it is set in the far east of his world instead of the more western area near southern Europe and northern Africa. ***spoiler alert*** Although Lewis certainly has no problem introducing the Eastern edge of his world to it's Western counterparts. And while I didn't get to see Bastet again, (*SIGH*), I did get to see some who I am assuming are some of her "relatives". Which was almost as interesting as Bastet herself. (Sorry I just have a soft spot for a girl with her own personal cat army)***End Spoiler alert***
Plus the way the chapters were set up was quite interesting. Each chapter is basically it's own mini-story. But the book still flows smoothly through all of them. Each chapter being a continuation in the lives and adventures of Asha and Priya. ***spoiler alert***Each chapter slowly revealing how their friendship develops, and how that friendship is what makes all the difference when not only lives but Asha's sanity and soul are on the line as well. ***end spoiler alert***
While this isn't exactly the same style he used for his previous novels. Lewis's descriptions of the country that they travel through is breathtaking. Making the land just as much a character as the actual people that inhabit it. Also since the time period during the book is longer, while there are still great action scenes, the book has more of a laid back feel to it. But don't make any mistake it is still a page turner. I didn't want it to end and I am eagerly looking forward to the next book about Asha and Priya.
This book is easily a stand alone novel. If you haven't read his previous works in the "Other Earth" series you won't feel lost. It is just as easily a great introduction to Lewis's Other Earth and I highly recommend it.
