Dragon Phoenix Blog

We rated this book:


Dragon Phoenix Blog is a multi-author novel written by three Hong Kong writers. Together, they have crafted a tale of two young men, descendants of two of the wisest men in Chinese history, that were also the human forms of two stars, brought to earth to help the poor. The two main characters are named Dragon and Phoenix, and they are brought together in the aftermath of a tsunami while helping the victims, and both then move one as students at one of the worst performing schools in Hong Kong, where they help transform it into one of the best. From there, they end up trying to recover three ancient Chinese treasures, competing with the US government, a shadowy Japanese group, and mysterious force that doesn’t want them to succeed.

Using three authors for the story both allows for different styles throughout the book, each usually fitting the mood and scene. There are occasionally changes that don’t flow as well, but, overall, the style works well. The story is an uplifting, optimistic story of how people with positive attitudes and a willingness to help can make a change in other people’s lives and their world. Even the major conflicts with the hostile parties in the adventure parts of the story are resolved without resorting to force. There is a great deal of introduction to Hong Kong and Chinese culture nestled in and among the storyline, that proves an additional depth. An interesting blend of writing style and culture.
