I recently finished Bridge of Birds and it was crazy incredible. It's a Chinese adventure story, with sages and con artists and ghosts and dragons and women who are worshiped and stone filled caves that sound like bells and holy paintings, and a heavenly court who isn't allowed to intervene in human affairs. Also? written so beautifully. I cried like three times at the end.
