  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 April #1
    *Starred Review* Magic disappeared long ago from Arawiya, and the kingdom is suffering for it. Zafira the Hunter disguises herself as a man to brave the cursed Arz, a forest that drives any who enter it insane. As the only soul capable of leaving the Arz whole, Zafira must feed her village with her routine hunts. Meanwhile, Nasir, the Prince of Death, strikes fear across the land as its most skilled assassin, efficiently cutting down anyone who poses a threat to his father's rule. Political unrest and a dying land force Zafira on a quest to restore magic to Arawiya before the encroaching forest consumes them all, and Nasir is set on her trail to retrieve the prize first and kill her. The treacherous journey throws the two enemies together, and they forge a tentative alliance to face a danger greater than either of them expected. Drawing inspiration from ancient Arabia, We Hunt the Flame gives exquisitely detailed insight into a cultural experience; this debut, about identity and unlikely allies, features subtly nuanced and deeply reflective characters. Layering high-stakes action with moods ranging from casual humor to raw anguish, Faizal bends fantasy tropes to her will to tell a fresh and gripping story about love, honor, and self-discovery that will leave readers scrambling for more. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
