We Hunt The Flame by Hafsah Faizal – Waiting On Wednesday
*this post includes affiliate links I have with Amazon*
Hello everyone! So, for the official first time ever – my #SBPT post doesn’t fully count bc it was on a Sunday lol – I am doing a Waiting on Wednesday post for my most anticipated book ever: We Hunt The Flame* by Hafsah Faizal! Now, Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking The Spine that highlights the book(s) you can’t wait to read and I am BEYOND EXCITED for We Hunt The Flame. Before I get into why, here’s the synopsis, via Goodreads (which in and of itself should help explain why):
The darkness speaks to those who listen. Those who listen are those who have accepted the darkness.
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 in Arawiya, 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 story of discovery, conquering fear, and taking identity into your own hands.
DOESN’T IT SOUND BRILLIANT OMG?!?!?! I CAN’T WAIT!!!?!?!? ok chill A, chill. ok, here are some of the very many reasons I am very excitedly waiting for WHTF (bc I am so very chill I made a list HA!):
- ASKFSALFEW DID YOU SEE THAT SYNOPSIS (ok totally not chill whoops) LIKE WHAT THE EVEN IS THAT IT SOUNDS SO GOOD?!?!?!
- It’s inspired by ancient Arabia?!?!?!?! SIGN ME UP LET’S GO ARABS YEAH BOI
- ^^^ I’m Arab so #REPRESENTATION?!?!?!?! OMG I CAN’T BUT I VERY MUCH CAN
- QR$#LQHJ%$Q@OHJ HAVE YOU SEEN THAT COVER LIKE SCROLL UP AGAIN YES SCROLL UP AND STARE AT THAT BEAUTY JUST STARE BECAUSE IT IS BEAUTIFUL
- you NEED to read the quotes that Hafsah has already released from the book because you will die from how awesome they are. Seriously, just go to Hafsah’s twitter and read them all (I would link but there are so many omg lol)
- I watched from afar as it was being written (not creepily but like I’ve been following Hafsah on twitter for like forever and she’s written updates about writing the book and everything sooooo) and I’ve been eagerly awaiting it and omg I can’t believe it’s being published and I’m so beyond excited for it omgggggggggggggggg
- ok this last one is very personal to me but: the fact that this book is coming out and that it’s by a Muslim author and the book is set in ancient Arabia and so many people are dying over reading it, gives me hope and inspiration and motivation to keep writing my book and publish it and I honestly cannot thank Hafsah enough for that. I’ve my motivation back and I’m writing as much as I can because of her and her book and I can’t wait until I’ve published my book and can have her & We Hunt The Flame in the acknowledgments section. Thank you Hafsah so much beyond what I can say.
And that is somehow all I can put into words. If I could, I would bottle up the ASKHLTRWASASRES and OMGs and more that come with just seeing anything related to We Hunt The Flame, and then send them to everyone because everyone should be excited for this book and preorder it* and love it and gosh I can’t wait for We Hunt The Flame!!!! Anyways, how excited are you for We Hunt The Flame?! Doesn’t it sound brilliant!? Let me know in the comments below!! Thanks, have a great day/night and tata for now!
