An interesting story idea with a lot of rough edges--this novel would have benefitted from about 100 more pages and some solid editing, as few of the plot lines or characters are truly fleshed out. Kai and Yun travel to the Phoenix Empire to return Princess Lian to Long City when her father the king mysteriously falls ill, but they discover a sinister plot along the way. Again--good ideas, but none of them are fully realized, and Kai is the only 3D character.

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.
