Book Review #777
Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon
Rating: one star (out of four)

I found this book disturbing and dark. I did not appreciate a couple scenes that were either violent or disturbing and sometimes both. These scenes were described in enough detail to make me squeamish. I thought the book was really interesting, but I didn't like the story line as much as I should or how it ended. Even though the ending could be described as "realistic" it just didn't fly for me because of all the other fantasy elements. The author could have easily pulled off a something a little happier for the characters. I would not recommend this book.
