BOOK TITLE: FLAME IN THE MIST
AUTHOR: RENEE AHDIEH
GENRE: YOUNG ADULT FANTASY, RETELLING
I finished this book last week and it was a different kind of read for me. This book is a retellingbof the disney movie Mulan. Since I haven’t seen Mulan, I could do any comparison. At the beginning the story went with a fast pace but later it was lagging so overall it was a medium paced read for me. It was filpee with action scenes and a female character as the only protagonist, her name was Mariko Hattori.
This story is about Mariko and her choices, her freedom. When she’ll join the Black clan at first without her agreement disguised as a boy she never knew that she’ll be a part of them one day.
I felt like this story could have been more gripping and it lacked some charm and suspense but otherwise was a fine retelling and gave a lot of Samurai and Japan vibes
