~ Goodreads Monday: We Hunt the Flame (Sands of Arawiya #1) ~

This is a weekly meme where any one can choose a random book from their Goodreads TBR and highlight it. Once you choose a book and create your post, make sure you link and reference the new host, @Budget Tales Book Blog. Eventually, I will try to find a rhyme or reason to my choices, but for now, each week will feature a random one that I mean to read soon!


This Week’s Selection:

We Hunt the Flame (Sands of Arawiya #1) by Hafsah Faizal

Published May 14th 2019 

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 sultan. 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 Zafira and Nasir 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 sultan 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. 


As I go through some of my backlist titles, I came across the Sands of Awawiya duology. I meant to read this first installment a few years ago and again when the sequel, We Free the Stars, was published last year. I have heard many mixed feelings from others about this duology, so I decided it is finally time for me to try it out myself. This duology is inspired by ancient Arabia and I cannot wait to see how that is incorporated into the story and characters.
