Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer  KMeng
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.
