People lived because she killed. People died because he lived.

Nobody knows that Zafira is the Hunter. Forced to disguise herself as a man, she braves the cursed forest to feed her people. If she is exposed as a girl, all of her achievements will be rejected.

Nasir is the infamous Prince of Death, assassinating those foolish enough to defy his autocratic father, the sultan. If he refuses he will be punished in the most brutal of ways.

Both are legends in the kingdom of Arawiya - but neither wants to be. And when Zafira embarks on a quest to restore magic to her suffering world, Nasir is sent by the sultan on a similar mission: retrieve magic 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, Hafsah Faizal's We Hunt the Flame - first in the Sands of Arawiya duology - is a breathtaking debut about discovery, conquering fear, and taking identity into your own hands.

Customer Reviews

This book had the makings of everything perfect – a diverse cast, inspired by ancient Arabia, a brilliant writer, magic, female empowerment, a quest and a hate-to-love romance at the centre of it all. To say that I was BEYOND excited about Hafsah Faizal’s debut would probably be an apt summation of me NEED TO READ THIS BOOK. I don’t know why it took me so long to dive in, except maybe for the fact that I was trying TO SAVOUR (?) the book and the anticipation of reading it. While I really enjoyed We Hunt the Flame, there were parts of the book where the character’s logic and development didn’t seem fully fleshed out, the writing a little stilted/ held back and that stopped me from falling head-over-heels for it. MY THOUGHTS: 1. I feel like the world should have been built better right from the get-go, especially in terms of political intrigue. We were fed random snippets of information at a time, and not in chronological order and it just made me feel disconnected from the story at large. The big bad villain wasn’t really played up, I didn’t understand the Prince of Death’s motivations and why he did what he did (why didn’t he just take her and the boy and RUN? Why didn’t he at least TRY?) and, most of all, there was an awkwardly written SENSELESS death (in terms of logic) at the start of the story – all of which I thought should have been done better. 2. Now that I’ve covered all the things I thought should have been better, let’s talk about the things I did enjoy, namely Zafira – who was every bit as badass and pure as I expected her to me. I enjoyed her point of view, especially as she fought against her demons, both internal and external and how she came to terms with her family and her power. 3. BOTH VERSIONS OF THIS COVER ARE JUST SO GORGEOUS THAT I COULD CRY. They are TRULY stunning! 4. MY GOD THAT ENDING HAS HURT MY SOUL AND NOW I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO UNTIL THE SECOND BOOK COMES OUT – HAFSAH FAIZAL CAN YOU HELP ME OUT HERE? My Verdict: I wish parts of the book had been better, especially the character development and logic more clearly brought to life, but I really enjoyed We Hunt The Flame nonetheless. 3.5 Stars.
