But she discovers a power stirring within her; She can reach with her spirit into others’ minds, hearing there thoughts and learning all that they know.

Silver Phoenix is a powerful tale of independence and fate, deftly told and cleverly set in ancient China. Debut author Cindy Pon’s first novel is destined to become a winner.

    Hi Allegra!
    This is really coincidental: I read Silver Pheonix just a week or so ago. I was at the library looking for more books and the librarian just got this book in. I really liked this book: it was very interesting, so much that I couldn’t put it down.
