Feature Fun Friday - Fury of the Phoenix

Current Theme Song (aka what's playing on my ipod right now): Varuna by E.S. Posthumus

I must tell you about a story and sequel that has not been getting nearly enough love. Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon is lush, well written and unique because it is a freakin' Asian fantasy for heaven's sake (how often do you see those, seriously?), and it has enough gorgeous descriptions of food that you'll be wanting to clamor into the book to get a taste. <--true statement.

And the sequel, Fury of the Phoenix, comes out on Tues. They are brought to you by the incredible Greenwillow Books, the same team who does such amazing books like Howl's Moving Castle and Megan Whalen Turner's The Queen's Thief series. So you know you're in good hands. And plus, it's been endorsed by Cassandra Clare, if you needed any more convincing. ;)

So here is the trailer for Fury of the Phoenix! I'm also including the trailer for Silver Phoenix because I think it captures the atmosphere and feeling far better (and plus the music to the SP trailer is just swoonworthy). So you get two for the price of one! Have an amazing and fantastic weekend, everyone!
