We Hunt the Flame (Sands of Arawiya, #1)

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.

Did you see the official art of WE HUNT THE FLAME’s zumra by @arz28? Zumra, in Arabic, means squad, and in this book it refers to the gang of unlikely members who reluctantly forge an alliance to save Arawiya from the brink of ruin. . First up, meet our huntress, Zafira Iskandar! Swipe through to see Nasir Ghameq, Altair al-Badawi (who doesn’t understand why he didn’t go first), Kifah Darwish, and Benyamin Haadi! . I hope you love them as much as I do! And if you *do*, then stay tuned for a slightly-related exciting thing I’ll be announcing next month! . . . . . #zafiraiskandar #nasirghameq #altair #altairalbadawi #kifahdarwish #benyaminhaadi #zumra #writersofinstagram #wehunttheflame #hafsahfaizal #amwriting #writersofig #squadgoals #authorsofinstagram #novelwriting #bookstagram #bookaesthetics #bookish #fantasyread #bookster #bookphotography #arabiannights #fiercereads #macmillan #arawiya #arz28

Yes, hangover kits usually include a plushie but wouldn’t you rather have Zafira on your desk to remind you to crush it always? Doing homework? Zafira cheers you on. Blogging your next review? Zafira reminds you that reviews help authors a lot.

Quote Pillowcase

Love is for children.
Death is for fools.
Darkness is my destiny.
Allegiance is my undoing.
Suffering is our fate.
And they were all horribly wrong.

We get shivers just reading that.

Specialty Tea Blend

tea cup with whole Star Anise pods

I’m thinking of a nice spiced tea, with star anise, cinnamon, ginger, black pepper, cloves, and a little bit of cayenne to balance it all out. Serve with fresh lemon & honey.
(disclaimer this is not a real blend, I just conjured it up!)

Mug Rug

And to go with your special tea blend, a mug rug to protect your desk made in the dark blue of the cover with gold filigree designs on the edges, and the crossed swords (from the cover) in the middle!

Candle Inspired by the Scents of Arawiya

Hafsah put together an amazing guide to the world and characters here and we think a candle featuring wild rose and smoke would provide the right mood for immersing yourself in Arawiya!

You may or may not know this but Hafsah Faizal is the design genius behind IceyDesigns, and well she also made a candle and an enamel pin for her own book, because YES! So check out her shop!

(We are not affiliates or product reps, we came up with this blog post idea months ago before the actual products were launched)
