I was very surprised by this book. I was not expecting it to be what I just read, but I liked how the story played out in spite of my original ideas. I very much liked Nasir’s character, but I’m alway drawn to the dark characters so I’m not necessarily surprised by that. What I really liked about him was that he knew that he was doing wrong but he fully embraced that about himself, yet at the same time hated himself for it. Very good inner-character struggle. I of course liked Zafira’s character, but not as much as I thought I would. She wasn’t as fierce as I thought she would be, or as ruthless. I didn’t really like how open her facial expressions were. It didn’t seem very realistic; or perhaps she was just terrible at schooling her features. Either way, I didn’t like that little detail. I liked the rest of the “zumra” and although Altair was too enthusiastic for his own good, I grew to like his charm. Quite a few plot points I didn’t see coming, but I also wasn’t too surprised by them. I am curious to see how this story will continue in Hafsah’s next installment! ( )

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.

Mixed reviews on this one. I wanted to love it for it's world-building, diverse characters, and the overall premise of the storyline but this novel just fell into the 'basic' and 'average' category for me. It wasn't exactly original with the many, many tropes surfacing throughout the read and the characters just weren't interesting enough to really grasp my attention. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't entirely bad yet it failed to impressed me but what would you expect with all the overhype?

I loved the setting and concept of this, but the pacing took away from all the twists and turns for me. I wish the journey had started sooner and the tone was just a little bit darker, but overall it had a lot of interesting elements.

diverse teen fantasy fiction (magic and alternative gender roles in an alternative ancient Middle East)

This sounds like it would be really good, but I will need to read it in print instead of audio--at least until I get a feel for the setting and characters, it is just too hard for me personally to absorb/process as an audio. I am impressed with the high quality of the narration (by the talented [a:Fiona Hardingham|6080025|Fiona Hardingham|https://s.gr-assets.com/assets/nophoto/user/u_50x66-632230dc9882b4352d753eedf9396530.png]; [a:Steve West|737890|Steve West|https://s.gr-assets.com/assets/nophoto/user/m_50x66-82093808bca726cb3249a493fbd3bd0f.png] is also credited but I hadn't gotten to his part yet)--perhaps I can read the second book as an audio.

update: I finished the print version of this, and gave it 3 stars (enjoyably good, and especially awesome for a debut novel!)
