The Dragon and the LotusThe Dragon and the Lotus by Joseph Robert Lewis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The books Lewis has written about Other Earth are engaging and well realized. The characters are vivid and the world-building is solid and believable.

Having read the first two books of the Halcyon series, it was intriguing to visit the far East of Other Earth for another glimpse into this world. While there is action in this story, it is less an action/adventure novel than the books of the Halcyon series. The region of the far East is also much more mystical and magical than the regions of southern Europe and northern Africa that we visit in the other series.

In this book, each chapter feels like a short story in the lives of Asha and Priya, though each chapter of their lives advances the overall story towards the eventual conclusion. Once more, I hope to see more from this author!

I received a free electronic copy of this book through a LibraryThing giveaway.
