Lo ammetto, non ho amato Flame in the mist quanto The wrath and the dawn ma è stato comunque amore a prima vista.
Personaggi indimenticabili, trama che non annoia mai, copertina stupenda.

5.0 su 5 stelle An Absolutely Wonderful Story 22 maggio 2017
Di Carol (bookish_notes) - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
So, the only thing I really knew going into this book was that I kept hearing this compared to Mulan. It isn't, really. Well, if a girl dressing and pretending to be a boy is an automatically comparison to Mulan, then sure. But story-wise, it's not Mulan; however, Flame in the Mist is its own wonderfully adventurous story. The story is magical, fun, and full of death. The death count in this book is shockingly high. Even within the first 50 pages, there are characters dying all over. I guess in a morbid way, that makes this 100% my kind of book.

We first meet Hattori Mariko, being sent in a caravan to her future husband, the emperor's second son. Mariko is the daughter of a samurai and in Feudal Japan, a daughter to further alliances and a chance to move a family up in status. She grew up with a brother and wanted nothing more than to make something of herself - through science or otherwise. When her caravan is set to flames in a forest, the immediate culprit is the Black Clan. They're a notorious group and Mariko sets her sights on finding the Black Clan to try to uncover why they wanting to have her killed.

I loved this book a lot. Even more so than the author's other stunningly enriching books - The Wrath and the Dawn, and The Rose and the Dagger. I absolutely loved the way the story unfolded and the secrets that swirled around the emperor, the Dragon of Kai (Mariko's brother Kenshin), and the members of the Black Clan. Mariko is charming and a complete badass. This book is addicting and just so much fun to read.

I think the story did get slightly confusing at times, though, surrounding the past drama involving the emperor, Ranmaru (the leader, a ronin, of the Black Clan), and Okami, his second. It takes a while to unravel as the story progresses, but the ending helps to clarify the story a bit.

Even with romance seeming more like a subplot in this case, I was so excited to see it bloom. And when the characters finally kissed, everthing seemed to escalate very quickly. I loved reading about Okami and his almost mysterious powers. There's definitely an underlying magical sense in this book where some things seem like it couldn't realistically happen, but still winds up being entirely believable. Renee Ahdieh has created a world that is rich and feels so real. I appreciated that many words were left in Japanese throughout the book and manages to weave so much of the culture into this story.

Flame in the Mist is a beautifully, well-written, complex, enchanting novel. I love that Mariko is less of a warrior, and more of a critical-thinking strategist. I loved the Black Clan members, even though they're bordering on whether or not they can be trusted since Mariko didn't know if they had put out the hit on her or not. I absolutely cannot wait to read the next book in this series, because the book ends with a bit of a cliffhanger and I need the second book now. I highly recommend this book for readers who enjoyed Renee's previous books, or if readers just enjoy awesome heroines!!

***Thanks to Penguin Random House and First to Read for providing me an ARC***

5.0 su 5 stelle Will Flame in the Mist be the best fantasy novel of 2017? 22 maggio 2017
Di YAandWine - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

For me, Flame in the Mist is the epitome of YA fantasy. It has all the elements that I look for in a book, and it executes on each of those elements so exquisitely. Getting to read an ARC copy of this book was truly an honor.

Thank you to Penguin Teen for granting me an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

The first thing I have to say is just WOW! This is one of those book reviews that is difficult to write, because finding the words to adequately describe a book that is this well-written, beautifully-developed, and perfectly executed is a near impossible task.

I loved everything about this story from the world-building, to the characters, to the magic, to the incredibly swoony romance. This book is everything I hoped it would be and so much more.

The various settings in Flame in the Mist are told with such vivid detail, I felt like I was there inside the story. The details of the forest particularly captured my attention. It is haunting, captivating, and a lovely all at the same time. There is also a bit of magic to the forest that made me fall in love with it, in spite of (or maybe because of) its darkness and secrets.

There are so many incredible characters in this book, and Ahdieh expertly handled the switching of POVs, and Mariko was an ideal protagonist for me. She is a strong female character, and by "strong" I mean that she is strong in spirit, mind, and heart. She is intelligent. Getting to watch her think through situations and finding effective solutions to those situations was fascinating. She has a wonderful character arc, and I adored her for her love and loyalty to both her friends and family in spite of the fact that they weren't all on the same side of the major conflict that runs throughout this book. Mariko is passionate, caring, smart, and everything that I look for in a main character.

There is an incredible cast of characters surrounding Mariko, who I also fell in love with. They all have hidden depths and motivations and getting to see more and more of each their characters unfolding as the story progressed was just so much fun.

I love books that include secret societies in their stories, and the Black Clan is a secret society that is captivating on so many levels. I can't say anything more about them without including spoilers, but I am certainly excited for this book to be out in the world so I can discuss them ad nauseum with my fellow voracious readers.

From reading the description of this book, I expected to enjoy the plot, the characters, and the world. I did not see expect for there to be such an incredible and intense romance though, and that unexpected element of this story in combination with everything else that I loved about it, is what propelled Flame in the Mist from being a great book to being the best book I've read so far this year.

There are some books coming out this year that sound like they are just going to knock our socks off, but it will be amazing difficult for any of them to top Flame in the Mist for being the best YA fantasy novel this year.

This book is a masterpiece in storytelling. I cannot think of a single way in which it could be improved, or that would have made me enjoy it more. This is pure perfection on a page, and I will be enjoying every second of anticipating the next book's release.
5.0 su 5 stelle Stop with the Mulan Comparisons already! 26 maggio 2017
Di OutlawPoet - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

First a little note: just because an Asian girl dresses like a boy and goes into some battle situations doesn't make a book just like Mulan. Seriously, people. There's a little more to it. Like, I don't know, a completely different plot???

Mariko is awesome. Our not-a-virgin, slice-and-dice, rebellious, not-Mulan, buttkicker of a heroine is terrific. She's way too impulsive, a little too comfortable in her rich girl privilege (she learns), and seriously likable. Readers won't just love her, they'll want to be her.

Our brooding hero is funny, smart, and you'll want one for your very own.

You've also got a bit of a supernatural element, a band of dangerous mercenaries, and political intrigue for miles.

Expect violence, swoons, heartbreak, sword fighting, other fighting, geishas (called something else), assassination plots, throwing stars, and a read that simply won't let go.

First in a series and I'm terribly disappointed that book 2 is not available right now. I would already have downloaded it.

edit:
Okay, back to add since it's bugging me. Mulan is Chinese. Mariko is Japanese. See...it's different. Different countries. Different cultures. Very much not the same thing.

I've been eyeing this book ever since I read The Rose & The Dagger! Truly happy it is out for everyone to read.

First off, I read chapter one (newsletter) and was intrigued. Who was the boy? Who was the girl and the little boy? Why did he (Samurai) die? I wanted to know everything! :) When I heard it took after Mulan, I was super excited! I love the story of Mulan and to put it honestly, Flame in the Mist does not follow that storyline at all but the fact that Mariko is a girl dress as a boy. Let that be clear.

Now, if you're comparing this book to The Wrath and The Dawn series, you're welcome to because Renee wrote it so well. However, allow this story, characters, and wit to charm you as well. When I first got the copy of The Wrath and The Dawn, it was an audiobook and I fell in love with it. Renee's storytelling gave me a magical vision of everything! I don't know if I would have loved it so much if I read the ebook alone so I did the same thing with Flame in the Mist. I purchased the audiobook and ebook.

And I loved it.

You have new characters who are tough, young and are sinners. They kill, fight, bicker, trick, steal and you can feel the legends of levels in the power of the monarchy. So far, the twists and turn are not so shocking but Renee's build of the story is amazing. You get the rich and poor. You feel the fanciness and ruggedness of all settings. The food and surroundings are vivid and you can't miss the magic. I love the magic, especially the killing tree scene. I hope to see more MAGIC in the next book!

Another thing Renee does so well are side characters. If you enjoyed TWNTD's side characters, you'll like these new characters too. I love all the side characters and stories because it really helps bring Mariko's story to life and gives reason to everything! I want more of YUMI'S STORY PLEASE!

If you're out searching for a magical Princess Mononoke/Mulan/ToughGirl/ book, this is for you.
4.0 su 5 stelle ... this book in hardcover because the cover is breathtakingly beautiful?! Such cover love here 18 maggio 2017

Can I say that I already preordered this book in hardcover because the cover is breathtakingly beautiful?! Such cover love here!!! Anyways, this was my first Ahdieh book and to sum it up, it's essentially a Mulan retelling annnnd throw in some ronin with a bit of Robin Hood! Which is not what I was expecting! I liked that she's diversifying between her series, a whole different culture and land and people to write about. I enjoy a good love/hate romance and this had it. I thought the romantic interest was going to be one person but ended up being someone else. The book really picked up about halfway through and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Mariko is kick-ass and the Black Clan are very mysterious and hey, there's some magic going on here!
