Okami (Flame in the Mist, #1.25) by Renee Ahdieh

Okami (Flame in the Mist, #1.25)

At the close of Flame in the Mist, to end a bloodbath between the Black Clan and imperial soldiers, Ōkami allows himself to be taken prisoner by Prince Raiden, Mariko’s betrothed. For someone who doesn’t believe in heroes, it’s a surprising choice: to trade his life for the lives of his friends and the one he loves. For he will surely be killed when he arrives in the Imperial City. But he decides if his life is the cost of love, it may not...

Reviews Okami (Flame in the Mist, #1.25)

  • Manisha
    Actual review: 3.5Ahdieh is a genius! This is one of two free ‘digital shorts’ to be released before the final book of this duology. For people like me who enjoyed the first book but can’t remember the details, this is a great refresher course. (Now I can enjoy or not enjoy the next book on its own merit, rather than based on what I remember.)We follow the thought processes of Ōkami as he is captured and taken to the capitol. In all hones...

    But heroes, after all, were a thing to hate.I love this line! This made me want to reread Flame in the Mist tbh. But also excited for the sequel!
  • Ezgi Tülü
    Even if Ōkami died a thousand deaths, it would be worth it. I'm so ready for Smoke in the Sun!
  • Beatrice (beatriceinbookland)
    "Perhaps these heroes did not exist, save for in stories.Ōkami was not a hero. His father had died trying to be one.Perhaps heroes were a thing to hate."It wasn't a fantastic novella, it was too short (this seems to be Ahdieh's style tho, she always writes her novellas like this) but it was nice to read Ōkami's thoughts!And now I need Smoke in the sun even more.
  • Noah
    A fun little short story with some insight into Okami's brain. I would have liked it more if it was longer, but honestly that's my only complaint here.
  • Iliana Matute
    Necesito massss...Como nos das sólo unas cuantas paginas no es justo 😭😭
  • Nancy The book junkie
    Review to come!
  • Ana Tascón
    OMG! I am not okay! Send help... and Smoke in the Sun! I need to read it now.
  • Raven_Blake (dreamy addictions)
    I loved it but it was too short! I need more Okami! I can't wait to read Smoke In the Sun!
  • Monique V
    Why so short!!!!I want more! He is such an interesting character and I want to know more about his power and where it comes from! I hope the next book answers my questions!
  • Stacey
    This is difficult to rate simply because it was so short. It was something like ten pages. However, that said, I really like that authors create and make available these little shorts to their series. Especially when, like Okami, that short is offered for free. This was a nice chance to re-familiarize myself with the characters and hype me up for the second novel which is being released soon.

    « To me, you are Magic »I just can’t wait to read the second book and this little novella of Okami got my hype on. I’m just so in love with Renée’s writing guys, I feel like I read a poem all the time ♡
  • Erin Arkin
    Loved reading Miami's thoughts and can't wait to see what happens next!
  • Lauren
    Oh my goodness I cannot wait for SMOKE IN THE SUNNNNN. I love Okami. This was super short but a great reintroduction to this world and series and I want more!
  • Kaitlin
    I've lost count of how many books I've read since finishing Flame in the Mist. But reading this novella brought back some of the finer details I'd forgotten (view spoiler)[like Takeda taking Okami's name, because somehow I forgot that twist? (hide spoiler)], and it was really fun to read from Okami's point of view. When I was reading TFitM, I couldn't really figure out how much he actually genuinely liked Mariko and that's made much more clear in...
  • Stephanie Marie
    As with Ahdieh’s novellas for The Wrath and the Dawn, this is awfully short and ultimately purposeless. I suppose there is some value in getting a glimpse into Okami’s head since he’s the most interesting character in Flame in the Mist, but I would have preferred reading a story about his past rather than a little snippet following the events at the end of the book. Quite honestly, I very much disliked Flame in the Mist, so I’ve already b...
  • Yana
    Sure makes you want to re-read Flame in the MistA really interesting glimpse into Okami’s mind. Reading these pages made me much more curious to read Smoke in the Sun than I anticipated, I also feel that maybe I should read Flame in the most again. Highly recommended if you liked Flame in the Mist.
  • K
    I have no idea what the point of this was or what it was even supposed to add to the story. It read more like an outtake than a short story, like the author started the scene in Okami’s POV and then realized it contributed nothing and (hopefully) later rewrote it in someone else’s. As it is, this doesn’t deepen my understanding of Okami’s character or build suspense for the next book.
  • Vicky
    I absolutely loved this! It was a nice little insight into what goes inside Okami’s mind and I wish it was a bit longer! It really got me in the mood to re-read flame in the mist and even more excited for smoke in the sun!
  • Ines Vieira
    Loved itJust what I needed to tie me over until the next book in the series comes out. Reading a small preview of Okami's strife and internal turmoil , you can already see the next book will be but wrenching. Can't wait
  • hamna
    this book made me cry so hard n made me realize how badly im gonna suffer in smoke in the sun................ rip hamna 2k18
  • Raffaella ~ onabookshelf
    Troppo corto. Io ho bisogno di un libro intero su Okami <3 <3 <3 <3 quando arrivi 5 giugno?
  • Laurie White
    "He would need the strength of these remembrances, if he was to face what was to come"
  • Neelam
    That last line though! I cannot wait for Smoke in the Sun!
  • Morgane
    I need book 2 ASAP!!Okami better stay safe, I swear...
  • Tammy
    I finally get to see inside Ranmaru’s head but sadly not very much happened in there since this is super short!
  • Abigail Ahlers
    Perfect, so small yet all the feels!
  • Bhairavee
    A very short novella before Smoke in the Sun releases in a month that will help me survive!
  • Sarah Hackworth
    This was good enough that I think I should reread Flame in the Mist before Smoke in the Sun comes out because I think that I would like it better now than when I read it the first time!
