Asha Of The Air is a work of fiction in the fantasy, mythology, and spiritual subgenres. It is intended for the general reading audience and was penned by author John Huddles. In the wasteland of a long-since abandoned Planet Earth, a mysterious futuristic figure from a cloud city recounts the ancient tale of protagonist Asha. A beautiful princess forced into marriage with an abusive merchant prince, Asha’s journey of mind, body, and soul is one that will test her to her limits and deliver an inspirational and philosophical message which is sure to inspire all those who encounter it.
The combination of texts from different schools of wisdom gives this novel a truly unique quality like nothing I’ve ever read before. Author John Huddles has a wonderful knack for not only researching these philosophies, legends, and ideas but for understanding the parallels and contrasts between them and linking them together to form a highly original new narrative that carries many transcendent messages to its readers. A particular highlight for me is the narrative quality of the author, whose prose often feels poetic and highly emotive like the very fables and spiritual stories he’s utilized as major influences. This gives the work a truly fantastical feel, and a kind of hindsight wisdom that confidently guides readers through Asha’s struggle whilst still giving us a sense of hope for her future, and for the future of hope itself. Overall, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Asha Of The Air to anyone seeking a deeply thought-provoking fantasy read.
