The day has finally arrived!!! We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal is in stores TODAY & I couldn’t be more excited about it!
I was lucky enough to read an early copy of this book, and it was actually the FIRST book I read in 2019, and I’ve been buzzing about it ever since. So I’m particularly excited that everyone can read it now & we can all fangirl together!
In case you’ve been living under a rock (or you aren’t a regular reader of my blog), here’s what We Hunt the Flame is all about:
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.
And as I mentioned, I’ve been buzzing about this book for months now. Here’s a peek back at everything I’ve featured here on the blog:
