The book Silver Phoenix is about a girl named Ai Ling who lives in the kingdom of Xia who goes off on a crazy adventure to save her father. He has disappeared after a trip to the Palace of Fragrant dreams. Along the way she meets many things, including some people who aid or try to stop her on her quest. Two of the good kind, Chen Yong and his brother, Li Rong, are esecially helpful. They save Ai Ling's life many times. Along the way, monsters try to stop them from getting to the emperor's Palace, but there is a magical force working with them. Somehow, Ai Ling is protected by an amulet her father gave her, or so she thinks. What will she find when she gets to the Palace at last? Will she find her father in time and be reunited with him? Or will something else happen, dooming her to a life within the castle walls, unable to save her father or her newfound friends?
I would recommend this book for teens who like action, adventure, and a little romance in their books. This book is a very good book that will make teens feel like they are a part of the action.
