*screeches like an excited pterodactyl*
HOUSTON, WE HAVE A TITLE AND A BLURB!!!!
Ok so I hope this is just a temp cover because, yeah I guess it's kinda pretty, but guys I AM NOT HAPPY WITH THIS send help.
Actual rating 3.75/5 stars.
Smoke in the Sun is the second book in the Flame in the Mist duology. This final instalment continues to follow Mariko, fiercely independent in a world that expects its females to be anything but. This fantasy, inspired by Feudal Japan, focuses on both the shifting allegiances and political intrigue of the Emperor's court, as well as the wider tribulations, troubling the kingdom.
Before beginning this book I only had the vaguest recollection of the first one. I could re ...more
Who invented duologies?
No, but really, since when is it okay for a series with such unique content and loveable characters to end so soon?
Yes, I am in mourning. I should be celebrating, because that ending is priceless, the author wrapped things up very nicely, but instead I am suffering from Flame in the Mist withdrawal. Just when you start caring for the protagonists so much… they are stolen away from you.
Hatred for duologies aside, I have to admit I admire Renée Ahdieh for knowing when to s ...more

Die Geschichte ist diesmal ganz anders gewesen, denn Mariko muss sich am Hof zurechtfinden, gleichzeitig ihre große Liebe r ...more

I originally didn’t know what to think going into this, I thought Flame in the Mist was okay, and had no idea where the journey would take us, but this was SO good! I have to admit I had hit a bit of a reading slump part way through this for a number of reasons, I wasn’t as engaged as what I would of liked. There’s a lot ...more
that feeling when you finished book 1 and realize book 2 probably won't be out for another year at least and that you've played yourself
