Ai-Ling is one fierce girl, but for the longest time she has no what's going on. That's part of what makes the story really interesting though.
Then Chen Yong really shone through. I found myself wanting to follow his story in the end.
Strong women will love the strong female lead in this story, and because the author is so good at describing the characters and setting up the scene, the guys will like it and think of movies like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
A really fantabulous story that I definitely want to continue with the second book, Fury of the Phoenix.
Recommend? Most definitely, YES!
