We Hunt the Flame Book By Hafsah Faizal [Online Reading, Summary, Review, Book, Download, PDF]


Zafira is the Huntress, disguises herself as a man when she challenges the cursed forest of the Arz to feed her people. Nasir is the Prince of Death, killing those dumb enough to challenge his autocratic father, the king. If Zafira were exposed as a child, all her achievements would be rejected; If Nasir showed his compassion, his father would punish him in the most brutal way.

Both are legends in the Arawiya kingdom, but neither wants to be.

The war is brewing, and the Arz is approaching every day that passes, wrapping the earth in the shadow. When Zafira embarks on a quest to discover a lost artifact that can restore magic in his suffering world and stop Arz, Nasir is sent by the king on a similar mission: to recover the artifact and kill the Hunter. But an ancient evil is agitated as their journey unfolds, and the prize they seek may pose a greater threat than anyone can imagine.

Located in a world rich in details inspired by ancient Arabia, We Hunt the Flame is an exciting discovery debut, conquers fear and takes identity into your own hands.


Arawiya was ruled by the Six Sisters of antiquity, who filled the lands with magic and peace until they disappeared, taking magic with them. Today is a divided land where misogyny is headed by a Sultan determined to rule all the lands by himself. Zafira lives his life on the sidelines like El Caz del Arz, a scary forest that nobody would dare to penetrate. He must hunt to feed his people, and if they discover her as a woman, her life will end. Nasir is a murderer, forced to kill by his father, the corrupt Sultan. When the Silver Witch presents Zafira with a quest to return the magic to her people, she takes it. Nasir, the Prince of Death, has the task of capturing her and stealing the device for his father, even if his heart is in conflict. Lyrical and full of adventures, a slow romance, and an unforgettable cast of characters in a world based in ancient Arabia, this is a debut series that should not be missed. VERDICT Fans of An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir and Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi should get excited about their next obsession.


Q - Does this book have Muslim rep? Thank you :)
A - It does not! The characters live in a fantasy world inspired by ancient Arabia. In the real world, the region has far more religions than Islam alone.
That said:
1) I didn't feel comfortable mixing Islam with fantasy/something so unreal.
2) I didn't want my identity to be paired with my debut.
3) WE HUNT THE FLAME is further proof that Arab =/= Muslim and vice versa.
Q - How many books in the series?
A- Currently: two!
