The highly anticipated sequel to Flame in the Mist - an addictive, sumptuous finale that will leave readers breathless from the bestselling author of The Wrath and the Dawn After Okami is captured in the Jukai forest, Mariko has no choice - to rescue him, she must return to Inako and face the dangers that have been waiting for her in the Heian Castle. She tricks her brother, Kenshin, and betrothed, Raiden, into thinking she was being held by the Black Clan against her will, playing the part of the dutiful bride-to-be to infiltrate the emperor's ranks and uncover the truth behind the betrayal that almost left her dead. With the wedding plans already underway, Mariko pretends to be consumed with her upcoming nuptials, all the while using her royal standing to peel back the layers of lies and deception surrounding the imperial court. But each secret she unfurls gives way to the next, ensnaring Mariko and Okami in a political scheme that threatens their honor, their love and very the safety of the empire. --Este texto se refiere a una edición agotada o no disponible de este título..

Muy bien escrito Creo que está bastante bien escrito, en cuanto al uso del inglés. Además las descripciones de los lugares japoneses, trajes y demás, pues son curiosos. Pero lo único que no me ha atrapado es que no me creo una visión tan moderna de las mujeres, y menos en esa época y menos en Japón. Pero, claro, es una novela, y fantástica, pero si me enganchaba todo, ese detalle me molestaba. Me refiero a que me creía menos ese detalle que la magia que aparece.
Fight Like A Girl. I adored Flame in the Mist; it was quite possibly the best book I read that year actually. Gripping, exciting with a likeable romance and a strong female lead. The only thing missing was a bit more of that sprinkling of magic we were given. But Smoke in the Sun has magic, and then some! If I'm entirely honest, I should have re-read Flame in the Mist before starting this second book. I couldn't remember all of the names of characters and which clan each person belonged to. But it soon came flooding back! I just love these characters. Mariko is strong-willed, fights for females and is just outrageously witty. I love her interactions with Okami; they have the kind of banter-filled relationship I want to read about. This book picks up right where the last one ended, plunging us back into Mariko's battle to rescue Okami from the clutches of the Emperor (whilst trying to avoid marrying his brother!). I think Roku makes such a convincing corrupt Emperor, with the sinister (but perfectly magical and ruthless) Kanako working her plans behind the scenes. She's one of the best parts of this book - cunning, deceptive but with a seemingly selfless and good natured cause at her heart. The more secondary characters like Mariko's brother Kenshin, and the Emperor's brother Raiden, are more central in this book. But there is less of a divide, or war, at the forefront and this did detract a little from the pace of the plot - the political intrigue is most certainly there though. This isn't by any means as powerful as Flame in the Mist. I didn't race through it desperate to see the outcome - it was quite predictable. There was something beautiful about the world-building of the first book which this second instalment was definitely missing - whilst the plot pulled forward and was interesting, the world felt much less developed. A satisfying conclusion so far; I can't help but love any world Mariko and Okami are in! ARC provided free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Amazing storytelling! So so so so good! Amazing, descriptive language, powerful story telling! I loved wrath and the dawn, these two stories are equally as compelling! Finished it within 2 days of it being ordered!! For lovers of Renee Ahdieh, a must read!
Amazing books. Such an amazing series of books be sure to real the mini stores Okomi and Yumi befor going into the second story.
wonderful writing another great story from this writer! luckily for me, I don't have to wait too long for the next episode!!
Great sequel x Brilliant sequel really enjoyed it x
Gutes, aber sehr ruhiges Finale "Fight not for greatness, but for goodness." (Pos. 3777) Nach den dramatischen Ereignissen im Jukai-Wald sind Mariko und Ōkami in Inako gelandet. Der alte Kaiser ist tot und der grausame Prinz Roku hat die Herrschaft übernommen. Während Ōkami im Kerker des Heian-Palastes gefangen gehalten und gefoltert wird und dort auf seine Hinrichtung wartet, spielt Mariko als Braut von Prinz Raiden ein riskantes Spiel. Sie versucht alles, um Ōkami zu befreien, dessen wahre Identität Rokus Macht bedroht. Doch auch der Black Clan bleibt nicht untätig und bekommt immer mehr Zulauf. Zudem grassiert eine merkwürdige Geisteskrankheit und bald erhebt sich eine dunkle Armee. Wird es Mariko & Co gelingen, Ōkami zu retten und das Imperium von Wa in eine bessere Zukunft zu führen? "Smoke in the Sun" stammt aus der Feder von Renée Ahdieh und ist der zweite und abschließende Teil ihrer Flame in the Mist-Reihe. Ein gutes Finale, das aber nicht ganz an den genialen Auftakt heranreicht. Nach kurzer Auffrischung der vergangenen Ereignisse war ich schnell wieder mittendrin im Geschehen, das sich diesmal auf Inako und den geheimnisvollen Heian Palast konzentriert. Ich liebe das japanische Setting ebenso wie den Schreibstil, auch wenn das Englisch für mich recht anspruchsvoll ist. Erneut fließen viele japanische Bezeichnungen mit ein, die am Ende in einem hilfreichen Glossar erklärt werden. Leider fehlen hier ein paar Begriffe und das Hin- und Herblättern hat meinen Lesefluss auch öfters gestört. "If you allow a monster to destroy everything in its path, then you are no better than the monster, Raiden." (Pos. 4354) Die Handlung verläuft zudem sehr ruhig und ohne viel Action. Etwas mehr Tempo hätte ich mir doch ab und zu gewünscht. Dafür glänzt die Autorin mit ihren vielschichtigen Charakteren, die sich hier wunderbar entfalten können. Verschiedene Perspektiven ermöglichen einen tiefen Einblick in die jeweilige Gedanken- und Gefühlswelt und alle Entwicklungen sind gut nachvollziehbar. Da ist zum Beispiel Prinz Raiden, dessen Loyalität zu seinem Bruder Roku immer mehr ins Wanken gerät. Seine Mutter Kanako, die dunkle Pläne schmiedet. Maiko Yumi, die sich gern als Kämpferin beweisen möchte. Kenshin, der das Vertrauen seiner Schwester Mariko verloren hat und mit Gedächtnislücken kämpft. Oder Ōkami, der sich seiner Vergangenheit und seiner Bestimmung als Sohn des letzten Shōgun stellen muss. Besonders mitgefiebert und mitgefühlt habe ich aber wieder mit Mariko. Eine starke, mutige und clevere Heldin, die hier ein hohes Risiko eingeht. "Be Water" heißt jetzt ihre Devise - sich fügsam verhalten, anpassen und dabei heimlich Ōkamis Befreiung vorantreiben. Was sich aber als schwieriger erweist als gedacht. Schon bald beginnt ein Wettlauf mit der Zeit. "Real Love was more than a moment. It was everything that happened after. Chaos in one instant, simplicity in the next. Everything and nothing in the space of a single breath." (Pos. 2404) Der Romantikanteil fällt allerdings recht klein aus. Mariko und Ōkami sind immer noch ein tolles und bezauberndes Paar, doch wir erleben nur ganz wenige richtig nahe Momente. Da hatte ich mir etwas mehr erhofft. Dagegen steigt der Magie- und Mysteryanteil. Wir erfahren von Dämonen, Blutschwuren, Nachtkreaturen, dunkler Magie und einer Zwischenwelt, was einiges erklärt. Erst im Showdown wird es richtig spannend und auch dramatisch. Wobei ich mir den wichtigsten Kampf am Ende noch etwas epischer ausgemalt hatte. Ein paar wenige Fragen bleiben dann zwar offen, dennoch findet die Geschichte einen schönen Abschluss. Insgesamt kann ich daher "Smoke in the Mist" empfehlen. Ein gutes, aber sehr ruhiges und tempoarmes Finale, das sich auf die Figuren und ihre Entwicklung konzentriert. 4 Sterne von mir.
Super 2tes Buch Ich hab mit großer Ungeduld die Fortsetzung erwartet und wurde nicht enttäuscht. Tolle, spannende Geschichte:), am Ende siegte die Liebe und die Fantasy-Elemente in einer ‚japanischen‘ Welt sind gut ausgearbeitet. 100% Leseempfehlung
Loved it! I loved the books! Especially the bad female characters were strong and had good reasons to be "bad". The only reason i can't give 5 stars is because the second book sports some spelling and grammar mistakes towards the end (feet instead of feel, did learned, ...).
I really liked the first book of this series I really liked the first book of this series, The Flame in the Mist. However this 2nd book was very different in alot of ways, the plot seemed VERY THICK with characters, so much so that it almost came across to me that the author was over encumbered by them. Attempting to give so many of them depth ...and yet other random one offs so shallow.. that by the end... I was left scatching my head about them. Our main love couple is still there, however there is alot more going on around them. The ending and last 1/4 of the book felt VERY rushed..almost slapped together compared to her other works. All in all it is for sure worth the buy if you read the firdt book. However dont look for the same kind of story from the previous one. Buy the paper back. Do not go for the hard back. Not worth the money for it. The art is only on the slip cover.
