"Unsouled" by Will Wright, first in the Cradle series, was nice enough. Chinese inspired fantasy, but with a high escalation path into stellar politics among superpowered/ascended beings. The juxtaposition of the two ("low level farm boy" vs "god-like beings") was a bit clumsy at times, and it cuts off early, but it was still relaxing to read.
