really liked it

Okay...give my some time to do a recap of the book since there is some time i've read it....*yiota thinks*....

I would describe Silver Phoenix as one of those classic japanese stories. I don't know how many of you've watch movies like Howl's Moving Castle, with weird creatures which doesn't really make sense, but the book is exactly like that but not so childish. The writing was captivating, exotic and is exactly like watching an anime movie.
Good things: Great and strong plot. Without turning around a romance, with depth and well created characters. Amazing descriptions and lovable characters. Strong and clever villain with surprising actions on how to destroy our heroes. The romance wasn't the main thing of the story, and it was presented a little every time in a way it made you like it even more.
Bad things: All those weird monsters, with many heads and other weird stuff were too unreal. I always find them as a bad idea in those Japanese stories. Also, the romance didn't turn out as i wanted and i got mad :P

Overall i really liked the book and i finished it in one night. I will admit, i've read it cause of its cover but I got really into it, even it wasn't such an "wow". Now, i can't wait for the next one.
