We Hunt the Flame
by Hafsah Faizal
Hitting shelves May 14, 2019
The darkness speaks to those who listen. Those who listen are those who have accepted the darkness.
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 in Arawiya, 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 story of discovery, conquering fear, and taking identity into your own hands.
Why I’m waiting on We Hunt the Flame:
I mean, I’m sure that cover and summary is enough to explain why I’m waiting on this one but on top of that Hafsah is actually a fellow blogger. She and I started blogging around the same time and we’ve been blogging friends for years now. She is extremely talented and I will support her in any way I can. That being said, I’m here for We Hunt the Flame. May can’t get here soon enough.
