I have wanted to read We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal for the longest time. It’s been so long, in fact, that I honestly didn’t realize this was a 2019 publication until today. I legitimately thought this book had been around for years. Which is it’s own bad anyway, since I really shouldn’t put off such an amazing sounding book for as long as I have. Or at least, as long as I believed I had. I’ve just never managed to get my hands on a copy of this book thus far. Either way, there is so much amazing plot to this story that I’m positive it’s going to be one of the most amazing reads I come across.
We Hunt the Flame seems like an amazingly epic tale and I can’t wait to read it.
People lived because she killed.
People died because he lived.
Zafira is the Hunter, disguising herself as a man when she braves the cursed forest of the Arz to feed her people. Nasir is the Prince of Death, assassinating those foolish enough to defy his autocratic father, the king. If Zafira was exposed as a girl, all of her achievements would be rejected; if Nasir displayed his compassion, his father would punish him in the most brutal of ways.
Both are legends in the kingdom of Arawiya—but neither wants to be.
War is brewing, and the Arz sweeps closer with each passing day, engulfing the land in shadow. When Zafira embarks on a quest to uncover a lost artifact that can restore magic to her suffering world and stop the Arz, Nasir is sent by the king on a similar mission: retrieve the artifact and kill the Hunter. But an ancient evil stirs as their journey unfolds—and the prize they seek may pose a threat greater than either can imagine.
Set in a richly detailed world inspired by ancient Arabia, We Hunt the Flame is a gripping debut of discovery, conquering fear, and taking identity into your own hands.
