Red Phoenix (Dark Heavens #2) (Mass Market Paperbound)
The second book in Australian author Kylie Chan's ingenious urban fantasy saga--a tale of ancient gods and foul demons doing battle in the modern world--Red Phoenix combines Chinese mythology with martial arts, paranormal romance, and magic in a story that takes off like a rocket and never slows down. The action moves from Hong Kong to Europe as heroine Emma Donahoe finds a demonic circle of death closing around her and the people she loves: the breathtaking and powerful god she is bound to and his innocent young daughter whom Emma has sworn to protect. Red Phoenix is gripping globe-trotting adventure, urban fantasy, and Kung Fu all rolled into one spectacular package that fans of Lilith Saintcrow, Liz Williams, Karen Chance, Devon Monk, and Ilona Andrews are going to flip over.
“Packed with Chinese mythology, kick-ass action and sexual tension… a smart, entertaining read.”
“White Tiger is a fast paced novel with liberal quantities of romance, action and fantasy. The present-day setting blends seamlessly with the solid grounding the book has in myth and folklore. It is a rich tapestry of culture, action and love and makes for good entertainment.”
“I feigned illness and took the day off work so I could keep reading.”
