honourable defeat, gifts, tehanu, the other wind, the queen/king

If you loved the first book then I highly recommend the second one!
Nikki G
Interspersed with the narrative of Ai Ling and Chen Yong's voyage, is the story of a young eunuch in the Emperor's palace.
catherine james
The books have a very Asian flare, full of Chinese roots, yet they take place in Pon's own world, Xia.

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!

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 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.

There was never a dull moment for me. This is the type of story that you're still thinking about days after you read it, wondering how the characters are and what they're doing. It was a fantastic ending to an unbelievably good story. I really really enjoyed both this one and the first book, Silver Phoenix.

I have enjoyed Silver Phoenix, but this book is nothing compared to it! Ai Ling learned a lot, about herself and others, throughout her journey to the far off kingdom. New friends were made, old ones became closer, and enemies turned good. Cindy Pon writes, describes, food, places, and objects like they are really right there. Especially the food in Silver Phoenix and the places in Fury of the Phoenix. I hope whoever would like to read this book does and enjoys every bit of it like I did.

I haven't got the chance to finish the book yet (Because the book arrived yesterday) but I have gotten into it, and knowing Cindy Pon, The book so far is wonderful so far. I read "The Silver Phoenix" 4 years ago, and remembered everything (Maybe because I read it 7 times...) It's very interesting, and Cindy Pon's writing wonderful writing style as not changed.

I should say that I did read Silver Phoenix but I didn't really remember any of it. I originally thought that I did, I think I remembered the end of the book but not anything that happened in it. That being said I don't think this book depended on the first book as much as I would have expected. Everything was well explained and the parallel stories, Ai Ling and Chen Yong, and Zhong Ye and Silver Phoenix were interesting. (this might be a bit of a spoiler but not really, skip to the next paragraph if you want to be sure) Yes they take place 300 years or so apart, and Zhong Ye and Silver Phoenix's story is taking place in Ai Ling's mind as she lives their memories.

What I liked about the story was that Ai Ling is strong.

"Ai Ling glanced up and gasped. "How do I climb on?" ... The old man nodded to a thick length of rope coiled on the bottom, the tip ending in a sharp four-pronged grapple hook. "Throw that." ... "Walk your feet up the side!" ... Unable to breathe, she squatted like a bruised toad against the ship as it slammed down, and the water surged up to meet her. Focus. One hand over the other, then shuffling with her feet. The rough rope bit into her slick palms. The crew would disperse soon. She would get on board this ship or die trying." (p. 10-11)

It is nice to have a strong female character. It is also nice to read a fantasy book that is about another culture, Chinese in this case even though it is a fictional land.

On the ship Ai Ling and Chen Yong avoid talking about their feelings for each other as well as dealing with the past they have. The captain of the ship Peng knows there is more than what they say.
