She is the author of Flame in the Mist as well as the #1 New York Times bestselling The Wrath and the Dawn and its sequel, The Rose and the Dagger.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2018 Fall)
In this conclusion to a duology that began with Flame in the Mist, readers return to the lush forests and palace intrigues of an alternate feudal Japan. Protagonist Mariko and her many supporting characters are more fully developed here, and the complex plot trajectory is ultimately satisfying. Despite overwrought prose, readers will get swept up in the high drama of this exciting romantic fantasy. Glos. Copyright 2018 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
