Flame in the Mist

(2)
From the No.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 Tamora Pierce.
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 a bloody 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 sets out 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 hideout, where she meets their leader, the rebel ronin Takeda Ranmaru, and his second-in-command, his best friend Okami. Still believing her to be a boy, Ranmaru and Okami eventually warm to Mariko, impressed by her intellect and ingenuity. 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.

„I'll Make a Man Out of You“

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!

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.

Guter Erster Teil

Das Buch ist größtenteils aus der Sicht von Mariko geschrieben. Einige wenige Kapitel sind aus der Sicht ihres Bruders geschrieben.

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.
