Happy Book Birthday to Hafsah Faizal and We Hunt the Flame (May 14, 2019 – Farrar, Straus and Giroux), book one in the Sands of Arawiya series!!!!
I’m SO excited for this book, I can’t even put it into words. I wish I could read it RIGHT NOW, but I work for Barnes & Noble and am hosting the YA Book Club for We Hunt the Flame, so I’m going to hold off reading it until closer to the book club night on July 11 (at 7pm). But that doesn’t mean I can’t spread the book love NOW!!! To do that, I’m hosting a giveaway for the book!! It will be international, as long as Book Depository ships to you for free!
First, here’s more about the book:
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.

‘People lived because she killed.
People died because he lived.’
Woaa, those sentences catch my heart. I had read the premise is so promising. Zafira who disguise herself as a man, and Nasir the prince of death. I’m curious about what’s going to be happen in this book.
My best wishes for her and her Book, hope everyone enjoy and love the book.
A cursed forest and a richly imagined world sound like good settings for this exciting story!
The story sounds fresh and unique, different from others and totally epic. Also I love fantasy and this seems like a great story.
I love fantasy books, especially Arabian inspired.
I have read so many wonderful things about these characters, I almost feel like I know them already! Can’t wait to get my hands on this book.
I have been following Hafsah for about 5 years now (I cannot believe it has been that long)! I actually have her first book Unbreathable (under Hafsah Laziaf) and cannot wait to add We Hunt the Flame to my collection! I am SO STINKING EXCITED to read her book and am so overcome with joy at how well it is being received so far!!!
This book sounds fantastic, such a lush and almost touch-able world, I can’t wait to finally read it!
As a fan of fantasy books and especially ones inspired by ancient Arabia, I’m super excited to get my hands on this one. Sounds so, so good!
Thank you for a generous giveaway!!
