We Free the Stars is the breathtaking second book in the Sands of Arawiya duology, by the masterful Hafsah Faizal.
After the battle on Sharr, Zafira and Nasir return to a ghostly Sultan’s Keep, low on resources and allies alike. The dark forest has fallen, but the kingdom teems with fear of the Lion of the Night’s return. As Nasir struggles to master the dark power in his blood, Zafira struggles against a very different darkness festering through her bond with the Jawarat.
The first book in the series, the epic fantasy We Hunt the Flame, was Hafsah's debut novel and an instant New York Times bestseller.
