likely to keep readers enthralled."—
Deseret News

“This
richly imagined, action-packed adventure, featuring a feisty heroine and set in feudal Japan, comes from the acclaimed author of

The Rose & The Dagger. . . . Ahdieh is a superb craftsman, and this
engaging tale of betrayal and revenge ends on a cliffhanger, leaving the reader eagerly awaiting the next book.”—
Buffalo News

 

“Rich world-building in feudal-era Japan
and plenty of intrigue make this page-turning young-adult novel a winning foray into fantasy.”—
Austin American Statesman

 

“[With] 
Flame in the Mist,
Ahdieh has gifted us a new series to obsess over. If you live for books that have
lush worlds,
swoony romance and
non-stop action, you’ll want to read this.”—
Paste Magazine

 

“Even in the long line of fictional females who pose as male to thwart patriarchal restrictions, 
Mariko stands out. . . . The novel’s
surprising, tumultuous ending leaves the reader eagerly anticipating a sequel, impatient to find out what iteration of herself Mariko will invent next.”—
Chicago Tribune

Renée Ahdieh’s heroine must infiltrate the assailants’ gang —disguised as a man.”—
US Weekly

 

“From the best-selling author of 
The Wrath and the Dawn duology, comes a new adventure. Set in Feudal Japan, Mariko has long known that despite her talent and intelligence, her future lies in making an advantageous political marriage. Traveling to the capital city for her marriage, she narrowly escapes an assassination attempt. Determined to get to the bottom of the plot, she dresses as a boy and infiltrates the gang sent to kill her.
If you liked Disney’s Mulan, you’ll like this.”—
The Newark Advocate

 

“Anyone who has read Renée Ahdieh's 
The Wrath and the Dawn duology (and if you haven't — get on it!) will be thrilled that she's releasing a new novel this year, called 
Flame in the Mist. Set in feudal Japan, this story follows a young woman named Mariko, who is the daughter of a samurai. On the way to be married in order to help her family's political standing, Mariko's group is attacked, and she poses as a boy to escape and infiltrate the clan of her enemies (
attention: Mulan-lovers!).”—
PopCrush

 


Alchemy, samurai, and Renée Ahdieh. Need we say more?”—
Culturess

 

“Beautifully written and masterfully plotted . . . Shades of
Mulan and
47 Ronin frame the novel, but the fantasy elements and the vivid characters give the story its own distinct flavor . . .
a definite must-read!”—
RT Book Reviews


As author Renée Ahdieh did with her debut,
 The Wrath & the Dawn, 
Flame in the Mist 
explores a young woman’s power and strength to effect great change in a patriarchal society. And the realistic stories, fascinating culture and complex relationships of Ahdieh’s fictional characters—explored in actual, historical settings—are
completely enrapturing.”—
BookPage

Flame in the Mist has her

the kind of book that’ll have you staying up late and calling in sick, just so you can finish it in one sitting.”—
Brit + Co

 

“With 
Flame in the Mist, Renée Ahdieh delivers
a vibrant, action-packed historical fantasy that unfurls in Feudal Japan . . . Ahdieh creates characters you long to learn more about. She’s adept at building a world that feels enchanting, hypnotic, real and sensual.
Every page shimmers with intrigue and desire.”—
USA Today Happy Ever After

“The story is
full of palace intrigue, disguises, magic, and Mariko’s search to find a place where she can be herself—not a bargaining chip, a daughter, a sister, or a prisoner. . . .
Fans of Tamora Pierce and Kristin Cashore will enjoy this magical feudal tale.”—

Do you love „Disney's Mulan“ as much as I do? And what about „Robin Hood“? Then you definetly have to read „Flame in the mist“, which has many details from both of them. There is everything a fandom heart could seek. A strong female protagonist named Mariko, who has a great character developement. Not to forget the other characters like Ranmaru, Okami, Yumi, Yoshi, Ren, Kenshin and I could go on even further, so you see, there is a great amount of characters that are really interesting and awesome. It has an exciting storyline with intrigue, love and, of course, Japan is in its focus. „Be as swift as the wind. As silent as the forest. As fierce as the fire. As unshakable as the mountain. And you can do anything.“ will be our new iconic lines remembering our loved lines : „we must be swift as the coursing river, (…) with all the force of a great typhoon, (…) with all the strength of a raging fire, mysterious as the dark side of the moon“. A must-read!

Do you want to read a book that's full of suspense and intrigue, has a strong female protagonist and is slightly reminiscent of "Mulan"? If so, "Flame in the Mist" is definitely the book for you! On her way to the imperial palace to marry the emperor's son, Mariko's carriage is hijacked and her entire entourage slaughtered. Stranded in the middle of a sinister forest, the young woman decides not to be overcome by fear, but to find out who was behind the attack and avenge the people she lost. Dressed as a boy Mariko infiltrates the Black Clan to do just that... Like with "The Wrath and the Dawn" it was hard for me to get into this story, because Renee Ahdieh's books always seem a bit overwhelming and foreign to me. At least in the beginning - once you get accustomed to her writing, you just can't stop reading and inevitably fall in love with her characters and storylines. Mariko, Ranmaru and Okami, in particular, are really deep and fascinating characters. Also, there are samurai in it - what more do you want? I ended up loving this book even more than the author's previous duology and simply cannot wait for the sequel to get released. I highly recommend this book to teenagers and adults alike.

Einige wenige Kapitel sind aus der Sicht ihres Bruders geschrieben. Was ich an dem Buch spannend finde, ist die Charakterentwicklung von Mariko. Vom verwöhnten Mädchen zum Anwärter beim Black Clan. Der Clan gibt ihr die Möglichkeit ihre 'unschicklichen' Eigenheiten auszuleben und dadurch dass sie sich als Mann ausgibt, hat sie auch viele Möglichkeiten. Da die Clan-Mitglieder ihr mehr Gehör schenken, als es bei ihren Eltern je der Fall war. In dem Buch geht es darum, dass sie versucht ein Geheimnis zu lüften und darum den Clan infiltriert, was aber eher zufällig so zustande kommt. Manche Dinge in der Geschichte sind vorhersehbar, manche kommen aber plötzlich. Schön finde ich den Punkt, in den sie erkennt, dass ihr Vater nicht gut und gerecht geherrscht hat. Und sie so isoliert aufgezogen wurde, dass Mariko das Können ihres Vaters nicht angezweifelt hat. Es ist mal was Anderes, zu sehen, dass Eltern doch nicht unfehlbar sind. Der Schreibstil ist sehr angenehm, auch wenn die japanischen Begriffe manchmal sehr viel sind. Glücklicherweise gibt es einen Anhang, in dem die Begriffe erklärt werden. Manchmal ergibt sich der Sinn der Wörter auch durch den Kontext und man muss nicht extra nachschlagen. Die Geschichte erinnert ein bisschen an Mulan, da sie in Japan spielt und es auch darum geht, dass eine junge Frau als Mann 'verkleidet' in der Männer Domäne Fuß findet. Das einzige was mich etwas stört, ist die Liebesgeschichte, die sich gegen Ende entwickelt. Scheinbar kommt kein YA-Romann ohne aus. Ja ok, mich stört auch, dass das Buch offen endet, gerade da wo es noch mal so richtig spannend wurde. Wer Japan-fan ist und auch Samurai, feudales Japan und einen Hauch von Fantasie mag sollte unbedingt mal in das Buch reinschauen.
