    You know, reading this book was like facing the calm before a storm rise. You'll get it what I mean after you read it. ...

    5 Words: Perfect length for a cuppa. A single chapter of Yumi, I just wish there was more! This comes directly before book two, and it really helped me understand her motivations at the beginning of book two a lot better. Also I want to know all of Yumi's rooftop escapades. ...

    A snippet of a story where Yumi gets to know the incidents that had occured at the end of the first book, and her determination to take matters into her own hands. Besides this, the overall plot moves a fraction forward and we get to know some back story that I was personally curious a...

    3.5 Stars ...

    this woulda been great if i remembered a) who yumi was and b) what happened in the entirety of flame and the mist ...

    "Frustration barreled up Yumi's throat as she considered the small children, their attention rapt, listening to the tales of the emperor's greatest achievements. A part of Yumi wished to take action. Wished to splash water on the puppets or drop rotten food onto the men behind the sta...

    I love strong female characters!! The information this short story provided was interesting! I wonder what is going to happen next! I cannot wait for the next flame in the mist instalment! ...

    ***Review to come*** ...

    I was surprised to learn about Okami and Yumi's mother. I guess I just assumed she was dead. O.o I was surprised that Yumi was able to 'fly' across the roofs like that. I figured she was to reserved to do something so active. ...

    Mini Review: Rating: 5 stars ? coz it was pretty empowering Yumi, a short story from the perspective of Asano Yumi, sister of Tsuneoki (leader of Black Clan). Yumi is one of maiko women, she also used to be messenger for her brother and his clan. After actions of Flame i...

    The quality of this novella wasn't as good as the previous one for Tha I am disappointed. ...

    "And even if Yumi knew she was a drop in an ocean, she also knew the smallest stone rolling down a mountain could bring about an avalanche." I mean, only Renee Ahdied can make you cheer for a character in less than 10 pages. I have to admit, I liked ?kami's novella more but I can'...

    Actual Rating: 3.5 Stars! I really liked this small novella on Yumi(Tsuneoki's sister) but I wish it was a bit longer. It was soooo short! Anyway, can't wait to see her in action in Smoke In The Sun! ...

    Rating: 3.75/5 Review to come! ...

    She was tired of being Tsuneoki's messenger. Tired of being nothing more than a pretty face. But mostly she was tired of being told what to do. SO.MUCH.GIRL.POWER I love how Ahdieh can get me so pumped up in 8 pages. Her writing is just soooooooo good! Yumi was a character I ...

    Mucho más poderoso que la otra historia corta. ...

    It was nice to get the point of view of a minor character for a change. ...

    I loved Yumi in the first book and wished we could have seen more of her and this chapter has made me love her even more! Looking forward to seeing more of her in Smoke in the Sun. ...

    3,5 Demasiado corto y este a diferencia de Okami, nos muestra algo más interesante; la personalidad de Yumi y como ve su situación, que planea hacer y lo astuta que es esta mujer. ...

    Way to go, Yumi! I bet you and Mariko could kick some real ass. ...

    A good time-filler before the release of the sequel Another nice short, though it doesn't really add anything to the series much like Okami's, though as I prefer his character I liked that one more. ...

    Yassssss! Go girl!??? ...

    Once again, I read this book after finishing Smoke in the Sun. But if you have a chance read it before you read the book. This small insert sets the tone for Yumi through out the book. In Flame of the Mist you only get.to see small glimpse of her. This however captures her true self. A...

    Such a short story, but full of heart. It is less than ten pages long, and this story is from the point of view of Yumi. She is the sister of Okami, and we met her a little in Flame in the Mist. She is training to be a Geisha. And so she is living a pretty safe life right now. In this ...

    Not bad, just not for me. I downloaded this and Okami (and am reading them in the wrong order, apparently, whoops) because they were free; I didn?t like Flame in the Mist very much, so I?m not sure what I was expecting from the story. Personal complaint: I don?t remember who a...

    Once again, another unbelievably short and insubstantial novella... With this novella, it seems it is meant as a introduction to Yumi?s importance in the second book of the series, but it is still unnecessary. Honestly, Yumi sounded very similar to Mariko?s character in terms of...

    The men inside did not know who she was now. But soon they would never forget. The second novella between Flame in the Mist and Smoke in the Sun follows Yumi, ?kami's younger sister, a maiko in Hanami. Yumi was a fairly small character in the first book, and so now I can't help but...

    I liked "Yumi"more than I did her other short story "Okami" but it was pretty much the same general idea. It is a nice, very short (9 pages) story that takes place in a the head of a character from "Flame in the Mist". Both shorts give some insight into the goals of the narrator. It al...

    You know, reading this book was like facing the calm before a storm rise. You'll get it what I mean after you read it. ...

    5 Words: Perfect length for a cuppa. A single chapter of Yumi, I just wish there was more! This comes directly before book two, and it really helped me understand her motivations at the beginning of book two a lot better. Also I want to know all of Yumi's rooftop escapades. ...

    A snippet of a story where Yumi gets to know the incidents that had occured at the end of the first book, and her determination to take matters into her own hands. Besides this, the overall plot moves a fraction forward and we get to know some back story that I was personally curious a...

    I was surprised to learn about Okami and Yumi's mother. I guess I just assumed she was dead. O.o I was surprised that Yumi was able to 'fly' across the roofs like that. I figured she was to reserved to do something so active. ...

    Mini Review: Rating: 5 stars ? coz it was pretty empowering Yumi, a short story from the perspective of Asano Yumi, sister of Tsuneoki (leader of Black Clan). Yumi is one of maiko women, she also used to be messenger for her brother and his clan. After actions of Flame i...

    It was nice to get the point of view of a minor character for a change. ...

    I loved Yumi in the first book and wished we could have seen more of her and this chapter has made me love her even more! Looking forward to seeing more of her in Smoke in the Sun. ...

    3,5 Demasiado corto y este a diferencia de Okami, nos muestra algo más interesante; la personalidad de Yumi y como ve su situación, que planea hacer y lo astuta que es esta mujer. ...

    Way to go, Yumi! I bet you and Mariko could kick some real ass. ...

    A good time-filler before the release of the sequel Another nice short, though it doesn't really add anything to the series much like Okami's, though as I prefer his character I liked that one more. ...

    Yassssss! Go girl!??? ...

    Once again, I read this book after finishing Smoke in the Sun. But if you have a chance read it before you read the book. This small insert sets the tone for Yumi through out the book. In Flame of the Mist you only get.to see small glimpse of her. This however captures her true self. A...

    Such a short story, but full of heart. It is less than ten pages long, and this story is from the point of view of Yumi. She is the sister of Okami, and we met her a little in Flame in the Mist. She is training to be a Geisha. And so she is living a pretty safe life right now. In this ...

    Not bad, just not for me. I downloaded this and Okami (and am reading them in the wrong order, apparently, whoops) because they were free; I didn?t like Flame in the Mist very much, so I?m not sure what I was expecting from the story. Personal complaint: I don?t remember who a...

    Once again, another unbelievably short and insubstantial novella... With this novella, it seems it is meant as a introduction to Yumi?s importance in the second book of the series, but it is still unnecessary. Honestly, Yumi sounded very similar to Mariko?s character in terms of...

    The men inside did not know who she was now. But soon they would never forget. The second novella between Flame in the Mist and Smoke in the Sun follows Yumi, ?kami's younger sister, a maiko in Hanami. Yumi was a fairly small character in the first book, and so now I can't help but...

    I liked "Yumi"more than I did her other short story "Okami" but it was pretty much the same general idea. It is a nice, very short (9 pages) story that takes place in a the head of a character from "Flame in the Mist". Both shorts give some insight into the goals of the narrator. It al...

    I really like Yumi and I was a little sad, that we didn't got more of her during the book - so this short story makes me very happy! I love to have a look into the mind of this girl who is much more than people think. She is a loving sister and friend - but also a fighter. She's writt...

    Actual Rating: 3.5 Stars! I really liked this small novella on Yumi(Tsuneoki's sister) but I wish it was a bit longer. It was soooo short! Anyway, can't wait to see her in action in Smoke In The Sun! ...

    Rating: 3.75/5 Review to come! ...

    She was tired of being Tsuneoki's messenger. Tired of being nothing more than a pretty face. But mostly she was tired of being told what to do. SO.MUCH.GIRL.POWER I love how Ahdieh can get me so pumped up in 8 pages. Her writing is just soooooooo good! Yumi was a character I ...

    It was nice to get the point of view of a minor character for a change. ...

    I loved Yumi in the first book and wished we could have seen more of her and this chapter has made me love her even more! Looking forward to seeing more of her in Smoke in the Sun. ...

    3,5 Demasiado corto y este a diferencia de Okami, nos muestra algo más interesante; la personalidad de Yumi y como ve su situación, que planea hacer y lo astuta que es esta mujer. ...

    Way to go, Yumi! I bet you and Mariko could kick some real ass. ...

    A good time-filler before the release of the sequel Another nice short, though it doesn't really add anything to the series much like Okami's, though as I prefer his character I liked that one more. ...

    Once again, I read this book after finishing Smoke in the Sun. But if you have a chance read it before you read the book. This small insert sets the tone for Yumi through out the book. In Flame of the Mist you only get.to see small glimpse of her. This however captures her true self. A...
