Synopsis

As a child, Asha was poisoned by a dragon and found she could hear the souls of all living things. Decades later, she uses her strange gift and her training as an herbalist to care for people possessed by ghosts, poisoned by legendary beasts, and tortured by the cruel doctors from the east. 

For years she has traveled alone, but a chance encounter in the forest gives her two companions, a blind nun named Priya and a sleepy mongoose called Jagdish. Together they heal the sick, save the lost, and solve ancient riddles. But when she journeys into the west, Asha discovers that there are fates worse than death and there are human monsters that can only be defeated by a woman with the strength of a dragon. 

Welcome to the world of AETHERIUM, where strange machines sail the seas and the skies, enormous prehistoric beasts roam the earth, and the restless dead whisper to the living. Similar to our own world in the sixteenth century, AETHERIUM explores a reality in which many of the megafauna did not die out, including terror birds and saber-toothed cats, and in which a devastating Ice Age continues to ravage Europe while Africa enjoys cool rains and the Sahara is no desert at all. But strangest of all may be the science of seeing, hearing, and controlling the souls of the dead using a golden metal with many names: sunsteel, orichalcum, and... AETHERIUM!
