"When Emma Donahoe took the position of nanny to John Chen's daughter Simone, she never expected to be caring for the child of a Chinese god, and she didn't expect that demons would want him dead. Nor has moving from nanny to partner in his heavenly realm made Emma's life any easier. Now a powerful race of demons has been created to hunt her and her family from Hong Kong to Europe. And she and Simone have become targets - pawns to be used in a deadly celestial power play."--P. [4] of cover.… (mere)

Really enjoyed it. Very fast paced, can't wait to get book 3. ( )

This was not quite as good as "The White Tiger," it lacked much of the humour that made the first book such a delight, but the action and excitement was right up there, so it was still a page turner. Looking forward to the last book in the trilogy. ( )

Absolutely loved it! It took me 5 hours straight to read this book. 560 pages. That's how good it was.

Again, non-stop action, fantastic battles, lots of intense situations, and Emma! Oh. My. God. I would never have thought in a million years she can be that. I was blown away.

Emma and John have some really sweet moments, and there is a lot going on. Obviously now, that she is Regent, there are plenty of assassination attempts on her life, especially on behalf of One Two Two aka Simon Wong, a disgusting demon who absolutely doesn't follow the code of honour and uses every awful malicious trick in the book to bring John's head to his dad.

Emma hires a new addition to Simone's bodyguards, a young and talented boy. She is also quite busy with other duties helping John to rebuild the mountain and train new warriors. John gets more and more drained of energy and it looks like they won't even have promised two years together. Even Simone's talents progress much faster than John thought and the girl finally finds out the whole truth about her dad.

There are couple of annoying moments. I didn't like how everyone kept telling Emma that she is extraordinary and how confident she was and how self-sacrificing to the point of being ridiculous. But perhaps I'm looking at it from the western point of view, and from the eastern point of view it was quite natural and expected.

Again there are plenty of fascinating details in book #2 to keep you hooked, and now I can't wait to find out what's going to happen in grand finale! A MUST READ for an urban fantasy fan. ( )

Was not able to put Red Phoenix down. A must read. ( )

I actually finally gave up on this, even though I have some mild interest in how it ends. The protagonist ought to be on the master list of Mary Sue-dom. Everyone loves her, she is just naturally talented at everything, the deities are delighted to have her around, etc. Even though the Chinese mythos is well researched and the overall story is fine, I just couldn't deal with it anymore. So, back to the library it goes! ( )

The Serpent stirred.
Then it slept again.
It whimpered in its slumber.
There was a call.
A deep, echoing call that made
the thick black water
vibrate and shimmer.
The Serpent cried.
There was no answer.
