There were so many different things I loved about this book. It did seem to have a lot of elements from other books mixed within it, so it didn't feel original. I was mostly reminded of Shadow and Bone and Throne of Glass, but there are other stories as well. I personally liked this book, maybe because I also like the stories it is similar to.
The characters are probably the best part about this book. They all had their own unique personality.

Not a new favorite but I definitely enjoyed reading it. It's a good debut!

quote

We Hunt the Flame | Hafsah Faizal

"All right' is when you're bleeding black but it's not as bad as bleeding red. When the world crashes but you're not alone when it does. When the darkness is absolute but you hunt down the smallest flame and coax it brighter. When you carve the good out of every bad and claim it a victory. If Sharr has taught me anything, it's that every breath is a victory."

He was a mess of scars like the sky was a mess of stars. From the one stretched down his face, to the craters on his back, to the ink on his arm. For that was what scars were, weren't they? A remembrance of moments dark.

With that one display of emotion, every victory of hers — braving the dark, returning from the Arz, feeding her people — had just been stepped upon and cast aside. Because she was a woman. How could he allow such unfairness to root in his bones?

"He won't hate me, but he will twist my very existence. Do you think seeing a woman won't make them rethink my every accomplishment? I'm no different than the scores of other girls frowned upon. Look at how they point fingers at the Six Sisters. Look at our women. They listen to this drivel that we are incapable, that we are to blame for every wrong, that we must lose all freedom when we marry---"

He didn't live. He existed. And no one understood the difference between the two until they ceased to live.

For in a caliphate where a woman's actions were always in danger of being turned against her, there was nothing easy about pretending to be a man.

⭐️⭐️⭐️There were some aspects I really loved in this book, but I didn‘t love the book as a whole.
The Middle Eastern setting was amazing - the clothes, culture, language, etc. I loved.There were some moments that I got confused, & the romance aspect felt a bit forced. And for a book focused on a quest, there was a long time before the characters got to any actual journeying. Overall it‘s an interesting story, & I do plan to read the second book.

ErinSueMreads I remember when this first came out. I worked at Barnes and noble and outside of the reviews printed on the back cover every single review I saw shared your sentiments almost exactly. 8mo
behudd @ErinSueMreads it‘s such a bummer cuz it could be so good & it‘s just not there. I‘m holding out hope for book 2 🤞🏻🤞🏻 8mo

This was a reread for me last year to prepare for the sequel but I just love this fantasy and I'm sure it'll be reread many times over.

This book had so many themes for other book. Just to name a couple: throne of glass & shadow and bone. Even stuff from assasins creed that it lost its originality. I found myself mocking the character with how predictable and stupid they were being.

🎧 I liked the MC Zaphir!! SPUNKY!

The chapter‘s narrators switched back & forth. I LOVE Steve West‘s voice!!

Sadly there‘s a couple of YA Tropes I dislike. A lot. So the rating took over a 2 star hit but West‘s narration won an extra star!

I‘m glad I listened!!

⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

3/5 for this one! I enjoyed this book. There was some slowness and I got a little confused in the middle. I want to know what happens next. Zaphira was a great character. I loved her.

This book was amazing and I‘m obsessed! I love it soo much and cannot believe the amount of times that I freaked out while reading. The plot twists are *chefs kiss* and of course, the enemies to lovers is immaculate. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I was really disappointed with this one. I‘ve had it on hold for a month and a half, and I just kept spacing out when I was reading. As in I don‘t have any memory of the story kind of spacing out.

I‘m still with Sylvia, I‘m loving her so much though.
C back to fantasy, whilst also finishing Normal People and They Both Die at the End (she cried!).

squirrelbrain You‘ve clearly trained her well - multiple books at once! 1y
Megabooks You are making great progress! So glad you both have books you‘re enjoying! 1y

This was an intense book right from the start. Took its time in building up the lore and story of these diverse characters in this Arabic inspired land, so it was slow to get going. What I liked most is that what you perceive most is actually the polar opposite. Especially Nasir and Zafira. Whom I both want to fight for their happy ending in the next book. The final 50ish pages are a blur of action brought together for the whole book. I loved it!

Blessed Memorial Day, all. Solemn morning ceremony and cool afternoon by the lake.
This is a long book that doesn‘t feel as long. It‘s just such an intriguing story for the hunt to bring back magic. The Huntress and the Prince of Death, hissing who they are to protect those around them. Albeit in much different ways. They‘re both so complex. I‘m interested in learning more about the form of magic swallowed by the Sharr. Which they‘ve final arrived
