Fury of the Phoenix by Cindy Pon
Ok, so heres what I managed to get. This girl, in China (at least thats where I think she is), is out looking for her friend. So suddenly, she sends out a “spirit coil” and connects to a man on a boat, and sees the person she was looking for. And while listening in to the conversation, through the guy her “spirit coil” another man starts yelling at her. So her attention is split and she proceeds to attack the man with her spirit. And thats as far as i got. Which was about 10 pages.
I could not stand to really read this book. There is a reason why I stopped after 10 pages. Part of the reason that I could not continue reading is that fact that through these 10 pages, they said each character’s name at least 10 times. It was very distracting. There is also the fact that there was no calm moments to start it off, no real alluding to an origin story. It just dove head first into the story. Really, I would not recommend this book to anyone. It hurt my head to try and read. And just so that it is known, I did try to read the book about 3 times on different occasions. its was just that bad.
