Excerpt from Cindy’s website.
I really enjoyed Silver Phoenix. It was full of culture, action and romance. I liked how the romance part of the novel was minor addition to the story and didn’t overwhelm it. The action kept my attention and I constantly wanted to know what was going to happen next. I loved learning about the culture and myths in the story it help expand how each character thought as well as bringing depth to the story. Silver Phoenix reminded me of Mulan I was almost expecting the characters to break out in song while they were on their journey. Cindy did an amazing job at describing the landscapes and monsters that Ai Ling and Chen Yong had to defeat.
I really enjoyed Ai Ling’s character she wasn’t just some push over she took it over her own life when she needed to the most. Chen Yong’s character is what I would like to call everyone’s knight in shining armor. I would get myself into trouble just for him to come rescue me. I can’t wait to see what Ai Ling has planned for herself in Fury of the Phoenix.
