Hello!! Well I recently finished We hunt the flame by Hafsah Faizal and this book destroyed me emotionally, in many ways and forms....
First thing... There were some Arabic words written in like English and I am crap at reading them, and it took me 1 whole day to realize what this word: Kharrah. means oh how I am a disgrace to my first language and my Arab parents πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈπŸ€¦β€β™€οΈπŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ Once I understood the word, lol, then I started reading it right.

Anyways. This book was such an adventure! I loved the writing, the plot, and THE CLIFFHANGERS!! Oh how many there were, and how much I enjoyed them 😌 EVERY CHAPTER ENDS IN A MIND JUGGLING CLIFFHANGER THAT MAKES YOU JUST STOP, CONTEMPLATE WHATS THE HELL IS GOING ON, AND CONTINUE READING!!

We Hunt The Flame is inspired by Ancient Arabia stealing you into the world of magic, deserts of ice, fear, power, and discovery. It is told from the point of view of the powerful Zafira, otherwise known as the secret hunter of Demenhue and she braves the sacred and cursed forest to feed and help her village. Nasir, otherwise known as prince of death or a Hashashin is the son of the Sultan, and while Zafira survived to help people, he survived to ruin people through his fathers orders. Both hide themselves behind masks, hiding themselves from the current of evil.

As both teens set on an adventure to restore magic back in Arawiya, they learn to take identity into their own hands, traveling into the world of Sharr and demons to restore peace. For Zafira, the task is not easy, if she were to show herself as the hunter, all her good deeds would be cast aside, for Nasir, he just wants to prove himself to his father.

And who knows, maybe as he sets out to kill Zafira, his feelings of compassion and love would be restored, and they both grow to love for each other....

huh?? What do you think?? πŸ˜‰

β€œIf I told you my name, would you bow?” His voice was soft. A melancholy caress. He lifted his chin when understanding dawned on her face. β€œOr would you flee?”
Did Nasir persuade you to read We hunt the flame from this quote?

What I enjoyed

βš”I am a complete sucker for fighting scenes, battling scenes. Whatever you would call them. They are just so compelling 😩 Just reading about the clash of knives, or a person knocking an arrow... OR FIGHTING THE PRINCE TILL YOU ARE ON TOP OF HIM AND HE IS ON THE GROUND. AH MY HEART πŸ–€ MY DULL HEART.

βš”I am obsessed with Cliffhangers. They add more depths to stories and they are so compelling in the end of chapters that you just read and read, and oh... ITS 3 AM!!
We hunt the flame was full fo Cliffhangers that made my brain hurt but made the story so good. Like I had to replay so many things, and I would be shocked that I would just stare at the wall trying to think about what the hell happened.

βš”The characters. I swear, you can literally point out the character development in the story, and you can see how both characters just changed. Not for the better or worse in the storyy lol... but for the better for you because it just makes you love them more... That makes no sense so yeah.

βš”The characters literally have different characters in themselves. Like Zafira has her hunter character and it just adds so much to her actual character.

The Characters:

🀍 Zafira - The hunter: Zafira is a girl who does not believe in love, and thinks love is useless, and an absolute pain in the ass, but she strives to look for love from her family and villagers, and that is why she IS the hunter, because she wants love from her people.
Zafira is also strong, and powerful, and deep within her she has magical powers that all this time has been guiding her as a child. And that power is a compass, directing her to the right direction without a second thought. You might call it a gut feeling, but she calls it magic within her heart.
She is also a girl looking to make a word for herself, but women are cast out in Ariwaya and are known to be less powerful, if she revealed her real self as the hunter, then all her work would be for nothing.

πŸ–€ Nasir - Hashashin: Nasir lost his mother, and with her he lost his white heart, and slowly as he grew motherless, in the hand of his cruel father and his punishments, his heart started to decay to black, with all the blood he had on his hands of many innocent. He bides with her fathers rule, or else he would be punished severely, his body cast out to ruins, and from his fathers tasks, he starts to lose faith, lose the sense of pain, and lose himself. He wants to find love, but he does not trust in love. He has lived in pain, and learned not to show his agony, he has been through so much and the black scars and burns on his back and chest show that. He despises his father. He blames himself for his mothers death. He is nothing, just a common murder that everyone fears.
Well I love him so..

I dont think there is anything that could have improved in this book because it was so good! The plot. The use of some arabic words, which was really clever. The characters.
I never though I could find a book this good :) OH HOW LUCKY I AM
