Cindy Pon's fans will not be disappointed with this sequel to Silver Phoenix. In Fury of the Phoenix, Cindy's imagination soars as she once again creates a fantastical world. The sequel gets off to a fast start, and although there isn't as much action as the first book, the plot twists keep the reader turning the pages wondering what new revelation is coming. Cindy weaves together the story lines of four characters, and fans will appreciate the romantic tension between Ai Ling and Chen Yong. Questions raised in Silver Phoenix are answered in a surprisingly satisfying way. Way to go Cindy!

Fury of the Phoenix could not have been better! I had long awaited a sequel to the amazing beginning of Silver Phoenix, wanting a glimpse into the life of the mysterious woman before Ai Ling came into the picture. The author did not let me down! I found myself wrapped into two tales, a continuation of Ai Ling's, and the stories from Zhong Ye's past.
If you loved the first book then I highly recommend the second one!

Fury of the Phoenix is the sequel to Silver Phoenix and follows Ai Ling and Chen Yong as they travel to Jiang Dao (Chen Yong's birth father's homeland). The novel is split between Ai Ling's and,unexpectedly, Zong Ye's perspectives. Zong Ye (the villain of Silver Phoenix) returns in spirit form to haunt Ai Ling. The great thing about the Zong Ye character is that we learn of his origins and he becomes a complete character. In Silver Phoenix he was just "The Bad Guy" and we didn't know much about him. In Fury of the Phoenix he becomes a real person. Ultimately not a nice one, but a real one. He's a great character.

Ai Ling spends much of her part of the novel either on board the ship taking her and Chen Yong to Jiang Dao or in in Jiang Dao itself. I have only two minor complaints with the novel and both have to do with setting. The opening scene of the novel has Ai Ling very improbably boarding and stowing away on a sailing vessel (at sea). It is impossible for me to imagine it happening as described and put me off in the first chapter. The second complaint has to do with the country of Jiang Dao. The author states in the afterword that Jiang Dao is not supposed to be Europe. Unfortunately, Xia is so clearly inspired by ancient China that I was constantly attempting to figure out which European country was supposed to be Jiang Dao. Don't do this. Jiang Dao is a completely fabricated country containing an assortment of elements of European culture.

Here's the good news: Fury of the Phoenix is excellent! It reads as a straight-up, grown-up fantasy novel and I was completely engaged throughout. The story of Ai Ling and Chen Yong's journey and relationship was well-written and perfectly paced. Having said that, I was even more engrossed by Zong Ye's story of his descent into evil.

This was the first time I liked the sequel better than the original. Although all the characters were introduced in the first book, it is in Fury that we get their back story. Kudos for Cindy Pon for humanizing our villain, Zhong Ye. His story was moving and satisfying.

The relationship between Ai Ling and Chen Yong made me smile. Their awkwardness in discovering each other felt real... like young love.

*Note: I had to write this review for school so my teacher would know if it was "appropriate" for some of the other students, so if the focus of the review seems odd...That's why.

** spoiler alert **

First off, I'd like to say that I highly recommend reading the first book in this series first. I read the second without reading the first and it really took away from the plot by adding confusion and leaving me nonplussed over which parts were intentional or if it was just me.

Fury of the Phoenix, the companion to Silver Phoenix, by Cindy Pon, started off by introducing Ai Ling, the pain protagonist's "gift" as she "throws" her spirit into another's to avoid a near-rape-scene, if you could call it that, I wouldn't even say it progressed enough to be a near-rape. Ai Ling's resourcefulness is then displayed as she manages to steal away onto a ship that had just left its harbor and the plot starts.

The whole book alternates between Ai Ling's perspective, the heroine helping her friend search for his father, and Zhong Ye's perspective, a young eunuch in the Emperor's palace, trying to claim the emperor's attention and move up the status ladder.

This book has just about everything, romance via sexual tension, action and adventure as their ship is attacked by sea spirits and another character has to face a centuries old monster, and fantasy as the author beautifully describes the different kingdoms of futile Asia, the valor and sacrifice that come with alchemy, and she interweaves Chinese myths into the story, adding a slightly dark and horrifying tint to the otherwise cheerful tale.

Format: Hardcover
Lush and full of adventure, Cindy Pon's Phoenix duo will take you to a world like you've never seen. The books have a very Asian flare, full of Chinese roots, yet they take place in Pon's own world, Xia. If you're a fan of high fantasy and anything like me, these books will be impossible to put down once you get started. While Silver Phoenix was my favorite of the two, I loved Pon's latest novel, Fury of the Phoenix, too. I didn't realize how much I missed Xia and its inhabitants until I re-read Silver Phoenix. It was like coming home and catching up with an old friend, one I'd neglected for far too long. Because I took the time to re-read (which I can't always do), I had an easier time slipping into the sequel.

What first captured me about Cindy Pon was her way of creating a world that's very Chinese at its heart, yet in a world of its own. Even better, her descriptions are lush and detailed, painting an image that's easy to visualize. Best of all is the lore. At first, I truly thought mythical creatures such as Life Seekers and Zhen fish were from traditional Chinese folklore, but in an upcoming interview with Pon, I discovered that all of these beings came from her own imagination. Silver Phoenix is heavier on this aspect, which I think is why I love it best. It has all of the traditional elements epic, sweeping fantasies do and I couldn't put it down for a moment, even upon my second time reading the book. For those new to the series, Silver Phoenix revolves around a courageous girl named Ai Ling who runs away from home rather than be married off to a horrible old neighbor.
