the blurb

When Yumi receives word of the battle led against her brother and the Black Clan by Prince Raiden and the Dragon of Kai, and of Ōkami’s sacrifice, she resents the bars of her gilded cage all the more. She’s tired of being a sheltered bird, protected in the Hanami. What Yumi really wants is to strike a blow against all the forces that control her life. The time has come.


my review

This is the second short story between the two books of the Flame in the Mist duology. And as much as I love Ōkami, I think I enjoyed this story even more. Yumi is an important yet secondary character in the first book, but there was something about her that truly appealed to me. She had a hidden strength to her, making it easy to overlook who she was at the core. That hidden strength becomes far less hidden in this story, and I loved that!
