 BOOK DESCRIPTIONS:


From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Wrath and the Dawn, comes a sweeping, action-packed YA adventure set against the backdrop of Feudal Japan where Mulan meets Throne of Glass.
     The daughter of a prominent samurai, Mariko has long known her place--she may be an accomplished alchemist, whose cunning rivals that of her brother Kenshin, but because she is not a boy, her future has always been out of her hands. At just seventeen years old, Mariko is promised to Minamoto Raiden, the son of the emperor's favorite consort--a political marriage that will elevate her family's standing. But en route to the imperial city of Inako, Mariko narrowly escapes an ambush by a dangerous gang of bandits known as the Black Clan, who she learns has been hired to kill her before she reaches the palace.
     Dressed as a peasant boy, Mariko decides to infiltrate the ranks of the Black Clan, determined to track down the person responsible for the target on her back. But she's quickly captured and taken to the Black Clan's secret lair, where she meets their leader, the rebel ronin Takeda Ranmaru, and his second-in-command, his best friend Okami. Ranmaru and Okami eventually warm to her, impressed by her intellect and ingenuity, though they still believe her to be a boy. As Mariko gets closer to the Black Clan, she uncovers a dark history of secrets, of betrayal and murder, which will force her to question everything she's ever known.


Review:

Thank you Penguin Random House for sending me a paperback copy of Flame in the Mist for review #prhpartner This in no way affected my opinion. 

I could not put this book down. The world was so vivid and the character development showed depth and growth. Relationships build and strengthen. This book had some great twists and turns and I loved the incorporation of Japanese mythology and folklore. 

Mariko was a character you definitely are rooting for. She is savvy and a survivor. All the odds are stacked against her and yet she show fierce determination. My favorite part of her growth and character development was her discovering through hiding just how sheltered and pampered she was. However, does that stop her from trying at everything thrown at her, NO! okami had me swooning and I loved the banter between Mariko and him. He does not know why she gets under his skin. He also never lets up and this makes Mariko grow as a person.

Flame in the Mist definitely left me wanting more and I can not wait to dive into Smoke in the Sun. There were definitely some cliff hanger moments I am dying to find out about. This was a must read and I am giving Flame in the MIst 5 out of 5 stars.
