I successfully finished both of my books yesterday, so it's time to roll again.
I'm not sure whether I'll complete this one. At first I thought it was impossible, but I've identified 3 possibilities:
Ghosts of Tsavo by Vered Ehsani (195 pages)
- Takes places in Africa (description implies a cozy paranormal? mystery)
On Basilisk Station by David Weber (447 pages)
- Has Honor Harrington's weird telepathic cat pet on the cover (I think that counts as exotic, don't you?)
Under Heaven by Guy Gavriel Kay (635 pages)
- Takes place in an alternate history fantasy version of 8th century Tang Dynasty China (fits Asia?)
Does anyone want to chime in? Which of those books should I try to read?
I think I'll go with Under Heaven, but I seem to recall that a large part of Linda Nagata's Limit of Vision takes place in Vietnam:
