The king of Lóng City is dying. For Kai Zou, the news means more than it does for most former street rats in the small mountain stronghold, because he and the king's daughter are close friends. Then the majestic ruler of the ghost dragons orders Kai to travel across the country to the Phoenix Empire, where the princess is learning statecraft. Kai and his best friend Yún must endure a grueling trek, placate a persnickety griffin, and navigate layers of danger and court intrigue to help the princess escape and return to Lóng City.

A refreshing mixture of magic, wit, and action, Fox and Phoenix is an auspicious YA debut.

    " I picked this one up at the library, just on a whim, and was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Bernobich has created a not-quite version of China, where energy comes from the magic flux. The characters are nicely done and I liked the media raes aspect of the story--it starts after the princess has been saved and we slowly get the backstory filled in. All in all, it struck me as being very solid in setting, characters, and plot. There was a section in the middle that seemed a little flaccid, but that may partly be because of my personal reactions to journey motifs in general. Bonus: a nice romance and a great male narrator. (Dec 2011) "

    " Not exactly what I thought it would be, but it was still a good story. {It would help if publishers would list on the cover somewhere that it is a part of a series - This one I think was #2 in a set} It would have helped if I had read the first one first; though I got the gist of the first one from the second. Characters are well realized and the story believable. "

    " An interesting fantasy world with some new ideas... Didn't really push my buttons, though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa Moore | 1/17/2014

    " Superb world-creation thus far -- sort of a "Philip Pullman in alternative Asia" mash-up with excellent writing. "

    " I actually really enjoyed this book, but the most annoying part was she kept referring to the past when there was no prequel to this book. She kept saying "we used to" but didn't explain fully. In the author's description this is her first book for children so it seemed silly "

    " Sweetly charming. My favorite part of the novel was definitely the world-building. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sandy | 5/10/2013

    " Started this, but quickly became bored out of my mind with endless world-building and minimal plot and character development. Gave up quick. "

    " It'd have been four stars if it hadn't felt weirdly like I was reading book two in a series. Which, as it turns out, I was reading a book that uses previous events from a short story. Word of advice? Let your reader know that. It drove me fucking insane. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tressa | 2/14/2013

    " Fox and Phoenix had an intriguing world that combined magic and technology and an interesting premise. Unfortunately, as the story progressed, the less I liked Kai. So, I stopped listening to the story, but the narration was pretty good. "

    " I did really understand this book at first, but it was a good book. "

    " Great adventure story. Of a gang of friends who grew apart after money is introduced into the mix. Everyone went their separate ways and friendship grow strained. People change. But when Kai is given a mission by the king of a ghost dragon it eventually leads to ther reunion as friends. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leigh Kimmel | 1/9/2012

    " Wow. A very interesting YA urban fantasy set in an alternate China where magic does much of the work of tech we're familiar with, yet the politics is still based upon monarchies. It reads like a sequel, because it's looking at what comes after the "happily ever after." "
