Chen Yong has been seeking the truth behind who his
parents really are. He meets a young woman, Ai Ling, as
she struggles to find and rescue her own father. Chen Yong
gladly accompanies her, but she begins to experience a
power that is growing within her. Ai Ling can hear
people's thoughts, and that helps the travelers as much as
it lures evil towards them. Along the way of finding their
family, Chen Yong and Ai Ling also find monsters,
goddesses, and romance.
I really enjoyed reading Silver
Phoenix because of its mix of genres. Adventure, romance,
and fantasy are all incorporated in this delightful book.
The introduction to the novel seems at first meaningless,
but as the reader gets further along in the story it make
sense and makes a better read. The clues and hints that
are thrown in the plot are very beneficial to the reader
when the events they foreshadow occur. I loved the
characters and the way that their emotions were well
described. If there were a sequel to this book, I would
read it. I recommend it to anyone who likes one, or all,
of those three genres.
