    I went into this book only really remembering that Flame in the Mist was a Mulan retelling, and that it was good. I could vaguely remember that Mariko and Okami were taken to the capital city, but that was about it. Hell, I couldn’t even remember who some of the names belonged to.(Thankfully, Book Series Recaps exists, and it’s truly a blessing.)I came out of this book, however, as complete Trash™ for Mariko and Okami. Truly, they are the u...

    It was a night for magic. A night swirling with mystery, an unknowable energy pulsing in its depths. Okay, I'm going to be honest about something: I remember enjoying the arc I read of Flame in the Mist last year but, before reading this book, I couldn't remember anything that happened. In fact, I wasn't sure I was going to continue with the duology. When I was lucky enough to get an arc of this sequel, I figured I'd just give it a shot.And it al...

    Just wow, the world building that went into this book by Renee Ahdieh is just simply phenomenal. The characters have back stories are well thought out and seamlessly added into the story giving you a little more insight to how they become and who they are. This book follows on from Flame in the Mist and what a book after the death of the Emperor and the capturing of Okami you delve straight back in the world of betrayal, magic, loyalty and love. ...

    Renee continue to write books so well that I will forever be your lackey/follower (but only in a good way, not a creepy way). Mariko, Raiden, Okami, Yumi and Kenshin all get bigger and better in this story. I hate giving away spoilers, so I refuse to expand on the storyline but just know that you will not be disappointed in what transpires in the ending to the fantastic story that was started in "Flame in the Mist". My only complaint...
