Help me update by Goodreads shelf: Asian-influenced sci-fi & fantasy

Hey guys, I am on a quest to find more sci-fi and fantasy books with Asian influence. Below are the titles I've found so far. Basically, I am looking for any spec fic book with Asian characters and/or an Asian-inspired setting atYA or Adult reading levels. (Not interested in children's picture books.) Let me know if you've come across a book that I don't have on my Goodreads list! Thanks for your help!

  1. Have you heard of the Tales of the Otori series by Lean Hearne? The writer isn't Asian but her story is set in alternate Japan and it is such an amazing series. I am so surprised that its not more popular!

    1. I really should learn to spell. It's Lian Hearn and the first book is called Across the Nightingale Floor.

  2. Jade Tiger by Jenn Reese, is an "action-adventure kung fu romance for kids and adults." It has a cool cover:)

  3. This comment has been removed by the author.

  4. Oops, the spec part of Jade Tiger are the five mystical jade animals and the main character, Shan Westin, is half-Chinese, half-American.

  5. Hm. I haven't come across many novels where they had Asian characters, but if I do, I'll be sure to let you know :)
