the blurb

At the close of Flame in the Mist, to end a bloodbath between the Black Clan and imperial soldiers, Ōkami allows himself to be taken prisoner by Prince Raiden, Mariko’s betrothed. For someone who doesn’t believe in heroes, it’s a surprising choice: to trade his life for the lives of his friends and the one he loves. For he will surely be killed when he arrives in the Imperial City. But he decides if his life is the cost of love, it may not be too high a price after all.

my review

Ōkami is the first of two short stories between the two Flame in the Mist novels. This one is a continuation of the first book, from the title character’s perspective, not a rehashing of the story told in the book. In truth, the story is not truly necessary in order to fully understand the central plot lines of the duology, but it is still a nice addition to it, especially if you fell in love with Ōkami in the first book.
