SPOTLIGHT: Reasons Why You Should Be Reading We Hunt The Flame!

Hello hello! With only ONE day to go until this gorgeous book releases, it's high time for me to talk a little more about one of my most anticipated releases of the ENTIRE YEAR: We Hunt The Flame by Hafsah Faizal!

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.

Five reasons why you should be reading We Hunt the Flame:
Additionally to this amazing premise, here are five reasons why you should pick up WHTF!

One: The world-building!
We Hunt the Flame is inspired by old Arabia and is, subsequently an ownvoices novel! To be immersed in this rich universe featuring characteristics of this beautiful culture, as well as the Arabic terms used within the book is so so cool! The world-building in We Hunt The Flame is absolutely amazing, and is definitely one of the highlights of the book. It's like you're stepping right into Arawiya!

Two: the amazing female characters! 
That's right, this book features some very strong and well-written ladies. Without spoiling anything, Zafira, in particular, is one of my favorite characters in the book! I love how layered and empowering Hafsah's female characters are!

Three: The beautiful writing!
This book is filled to the brim with inspiring quotes and gorgeous descriptions. I absolutely adored the way this book was written. The writing style, the POV switch, and the seamless blending of Arabic phrases made this book such a unique experience!

 Four: Broody YA boyfriends!
This book contains some serious favorite character material. Not only are the ladies amazing, Nasir is fits perfectly into the brooding YA boyfriend category. He's insanely layered, morally grey and a little bit emo, so another perfect reason to pick up this book ASAP!

Five: Altair.
This man is a reason by himself.
