Title We Hunt the Flame
Author Hafsah Faizal
Section Covered Act III (Chapters 64-91)
I was so pumped to read the final act in this book. Act II >>>>> Act I so I had very very very high hopes for the third act.
Altair – back to Altair. I had a brief moment where I thought Benyamin was my favorite character (and he’s still a very close second) but Altair takes the prize in Act III. He was the light to his little brother’s darkness and he was the best character.
**Major Spoiler Alert** – the bromance I loved so much became so much more when we learned that Altair is Nasir’s big brother. What an excellent turn. I loved it.
However, I hated that Altair thinks the gang left him on Sharr. He needs to know that Nasir is coming back for him.
I hated the fact that Benyamin died but, I did like the idea that now he could be with his son again. That was a tragic story that was almost too much. I’m ok with his death since Nasir gained a brother while he lost his cousin.
The Silver Witch, is who?? I can’t say I’m totally surprised, I did think she was one of the Six Sisters of Old but the warden of Sharr, that was a bit of a surprise. Also, I was a little surprised that she is Nasir’s mother.
Once learning about Altair’s mother, I really can’t say his father’s identity was any kind of shock. Why else would he have agreed to go so far for Nasir? Why did he know so much? I am now very curious to know what a half ancient, quarter safi, quarter ifrit is capable of so I guess I will have to wait for the next book.
The romance. Slow burning to the bitter end. We got to see it develop a little more in Act III and then Nasir went and ruined it all.
Overall, I loved this book. It started out slow but it built into something amazing. I am dying to read the next installment in the story (despite the lack of title, publication date, and synopsis available on Goodreads).
