No one wanted Ai Ling. And deep down she is relieved — despite the dishonor she has brought upon her family — to be unbetrothed and free, not some stranger's subservient bride banished to the inner quarters. But now, something is after her. Something terrifying — a force she cannot comprehend. And as pieces of the puzzle start to fit together, Ai Ling begins to understand that her journey to the Palace of Fragrant Dreams isn't only a quest to find her beloved father but a venture with stakes larger than she could have imagined.Bravery, intelligence, the will to fight and fight hard . . . she will need all of these things. Just as she will need the new and mysterious power growing within her. She will also need help.It is Chen Yong who finds her partly submerged and barely breathing at the edge of a deep lake. There is something of unspeakable evil trying to drag her under. On a quest of his own, Chen Yong offers that help . . . and perhaps more.

Cindy Pon's debut novel "Silver Phoenix" is a breathtaking adventure. The heroine of this tale is Ai Ling, a young woman on the brink of facing the traditional expectations of her Xian society. She is expected to marry well and live quietly in the inner quarters. Fate has other plans for her, however, and Ai Ling is thrust into a journey full of monsters and strange lands in order to find her missing father. Along the way, her path crosses with Chen Yong, a young man looking for his own answers, and together they battle towards the Palace of Fragrant Dreams.

This novel was full of unexpected twists and turns. Every time Ai Ling encountered a new monster or stumbled into a strange land, I was mesmerized by Cindy Pon's ability to describe these fantastical elements. I had no trouble painting the images she described in my mind and this really helped me to feel absorbed in the story. It was a very exciting read because just when I thought the main characters were safe, they were thrown into another seemingly impossible situation. Ai Ling is a strong and determined character but my favourite aspect of this book would have to be the fantastic world that Ms. Pon created for her heroine. I also enjoyed the relationship between Ai Ling and Chen Yong because it progressed very realistically but I do hope their relationship blossoms a lot more in the next book!
