YAY! This was my first read with so much Arabic in the dialogue and narrative, but there was enough context that I got used to it.
No one expects her to come back alive, least of all the Sultan to the north, who sends his son Nasir, a trained assassin, to find the famed hunter and bring the lost magic to him.
An appealing spin on traditional fantasy elements.
Anyway, do I even need to present We Hunt The Flame? Both Zafira and Nasir are legends in the kingdom of Arawiya—but neither wants to be.
|2019-02-05||the plot of the book was slow-paced but it did not drag on or boring|
|I can both see why one would love this, but also hate it||Basically, the characters were flat and didn't try to be more than the plastic archetypes than the writer started with|
|Did that really happen? I mean, I like when authors have beautiful prose and there is a subtle kind of comparison and similarities in lines|
|How is the clothing of the characters described? People died because he lived|
|Retrieved 2019-05-24||Along with the two narrators we are blessed with so many more wonderful characters|
|It didn't overdo it with the flourish, but it also wasn't dull||i think it helped that i didnt have any expectations going in and that i was totally in the mood for some exotic ancient arabian magic|
|I liked this book though and I did not regret spending my free time by reading this book||Nasir, the Prince of Death himself, is tasked to capture her and steal the artifact for his father even if his heart is conflicted|
|i had an opportunity to read this early and i'm pretty jealous of myself : this book is INCREDIBLE and i'm pretty sure i've found my book husband||In conclusion, We Hunt The Flame is as boring and banal as Wicked Saints was a couple of months ago, and I don't even know if I'm going keep reading new releases labelled under the YA fantasy genre anymore because honestly, they've all been a disappointment this year|
|Like: The Hunger Games; Uprooted; Throne of Glass|
|'" - BUSTLE "About to take the industry by storm||Nasir is the Prince of Death, assassinating those foolish enough to defy his autocratic father, the sultan|
|Readers smell the different foods in the marketplace and begin to understand the many layers of each culture in Arawiya||his tattoo, the bronzed ink shimmering in the early light|
|VERDICT Fans of Sabaa Tahir's An Ember in the Ashes and Tomi Adeyemi's Children of Blood and Bone should get excited for their next obsession||I was so sure I read this somewhere before and then DING DING: Throne of Glass!!!! It's been all over booktwitter and I'm not even on it and everyone keeps talking about it|
|But she begins to reveal herself and accept her powers and her calling to save others||Today it is a divided land where misogyny reigns-headed by a Sultan determined to rule all of the lands himself|
|They were a tumultuous gray like the ashes of a dead fire, adrift on a cold wind||But these two obviously fall in love yada yada, do I need to say more? 🌟 Now the writing was the thing that irked me most, the mix between Arabic and English was a big NO from me! Which makes him the perfect YA love interest|
