  • A MUST READ!!!!

    I need book two. NOW. Where do I even begin? WHTF has been hyped through the roof and now that I've completed it, I can definitely say the hype is well deserved. This book is FANTASTIC. It's original, exciting, romantic, and packed with memorable and loveable characters (ALTAIR!!!!) Hafsah Faizal has a very elegant style of writing, which forces readers to pay attention to every word. She has an incredible way of stringing words together that isn't common in most books I've read. The world is also heavily inspired by Middle Eastern culture and lore, and I have to confess there were a few words that I didn't really understand (though I got the Scheherazade reference!). They added to the world and didn't decrease my enjoyment, but combined with Faizal's writing style, it usually meant I had to go back and reread a sentence or two to understand what was being said. WHTF really works your brain! The book is packed with action and monsters and thrills and adventure, as well as a slow burn romance that will have you screaming "Just kiss already!" more than once. It also has some of the most beloved characters I've read in a book. Every one, even the side characters, was strong and complex, and I loved many of them. Zafira is a powerful young woman who won't let anyone stand in her way, and I adore her, but one of my favourite characters is Nasir. He is just so complex, his heart torn between what he thinks he is, what he's been forced to do, and what he wants to become. He knows he should be an emotionless monster, and that's how everyone sees him, which makes the moments when he feels emotions all the more impactful and gut-wrenching. And then there's Altair. He may be a side character, but Altair steals every scene he's in. He made me laugh all the time, and had some shocking revelations that make him crucial to the story. I finished the book a couple hours ago and am already dying for the sequel. Not just because I loved it, but because there were so many shocking twists that I NEED to know what happens next, especially after that epilogue that shook me to the core. WHTF deserves all the hype and praise, and I'm already counting the days until I can enter the world of Arawiya once more.

  • What a phenomenal new voice

    This was a phenomenal read of an exiting new voice. The plot was well thought out and kept me captivated from start 'till finish. It is very fast paced and never missed a beat. The charters were fleshed out and believable. I felt strongly for them. Their heartaches were mine and I shared in their joys. They were diverse and each had their own voice. The setting and the world-building were great and the magic system very interesting. The way it ended though really makes me hunger for more!! like right now!!! I need to see my babies again and hopefully the author will be good to them. Hafsah Faizal managed to make it to my auto-buy list with only her debut novel. Whatever she may put out, I will be there pre-ordering it.

  • Loved it!

    I loved this book. The descriptive writing style was great. I found myself lost in the book even at the uneventful parts that focused on developing characters and background. The way it was written made me see the scenes so vividly. The book has a double point of view. It follows Zafira, a huntress, and Nasir, the Prince of Death. Zafira hunts to keep her people alive since a dark magical forest combined with a tyrannical sultan has left her caliphate frozen and scarce. Nasir is the sultan's son. He is an assassin. He is the broken, morally grey, dark haired character that makes for a fun love interest. It is a slow burn romance. Every little moment that the characters showed any vulnerability had me smiling. But the adventure of this story was amazing and I would have loved it without the exciting enemies to lovers arc. This book confused me at times. All of a sudden the characters would say things or find themselves in situations and it seemed like it came out of nowhere. But overall a great story of trekking through the desert, encountering magical obstacles, discovering your character, and fighting.

  • Lush fantasy - amazing characters + world-buildng

    I really loved We Hunt the Flame. It is a well-written fantasy inspired by Middle Eastern culture. The world building is skillful, the magic system fascinating, and the characters complex. The land of Arawiya once vibrant and flourishing, has lost its good magic, has become cursed and suffers under a cruel Sultan. Zafira is the legendary Demenhune Hunter who masquerades as a man to brave a dark, treacherous forest called the Arz so that she can feed her people. The Arz is invading Arawiya, threatening to destroy it. Zafira is offered the chance to venture to a mysterious island in a quest for an artifact that will restore good magic to her land and defeat the Arz. Nasir, the Sultan’s son, an assassin who does his bidding, is tasked with using Zafira to find the artifact and then kill her. They are joined on the island by other characters, with their own, at first, mysterious agendas. I liked all the characters and watching how their relationships grew and changed. I loved Altair and Kifah. There were some quite unexpected twists. Lush descriptions of the setting, people, clothes and food abound. The romance was slowly developed and did not dominate the story. I am grateful to have read this right as the sequel is published so I don't have to wait. Highly recommended.
