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.

I loved that these were free. Told from Okami’s point-of-view post Flame in the Mist. You definitely do not need to read this prior to Smoke in the Sun. It is exactly what a novella (though we can barely even call it that) should be for a series. Optional, yet provides additional insight that contains bonus information on a character. In other worlds, I enjoyed it.

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.

Yumi was another joy to read. I hope we get to see more of her in Smoke in the Sun.
