We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal


It is expected to be published on May 14, 2019, by Farrar, Straus, and Giroux

I’m so excited about this book. Hafash Faizal is awesome on Twitter. I can’t wait to see where the story leads thanks to the synopsis. One of the characters is Prince of Death, an Assassin? Yes, please. This is her debut novel and I’m here for it!

I love the cover. I love the first cover they reveal as well. I am secretly hoping that the first cover will be on the naked covers (I don’t know the proper term of naked covers if you know it, please do let me know and I’ll update this). I love the blue background with the yellow typography. Zafira looks great on the cover with the cloak flapping in the wind. I love it. 

What do you think?

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.
