Finalist for the William C. Morris YA Debut Award* "A must-read for lovers of fantasy." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review"Azad's splendid debut is an ode to cultural harmony that features exciting magic, an emotionally complex cast, and a touching romance." -- Booklist"Fiery magic, sizzling romance, and a city so achingly hopeful and real that you can almost taste it on every page. I can't wait to return to Noor!" -- Rachel Hartman, New York Times bestselling author of the Seraphina books"Ground breaking and immersive paranormal YA that evokes all the beauty, richness, and diversity of the ancient cultures, faiths, and languages of the Silk Road. There's an effortless beauty in the kaleidoscopic descriptions of food, fashion, practices, and faiths; Azad's language is so evocative, you can almost taste and smell the riches of the night bazaar. A fiercely feminist take on Islamic culture, it's an assured and outside-the-box debut that deals with larger themes -- such as tolerance and women's rights -- while functioning as a thrilling action adventure with touches of heart-stirring romance. Prepare to be swept up." -- Rebecca Lim, bestselling author of Mercy and The Astrologer's Daughter"Sumptuous writing, vivid detail, and a gallery of deftly-drawn characters highlight this glorious debut." -- Kate Elliott, author of Court of Fives and Cold Magic"No other book I've read this year has felt as much like home to me. Gorgeous, intricate and enthralling in its scope, The Candle and the Flame is a brilliant debut . . . a stunning standout in YA fantasy." -- Ausma Zehanat Khan, author of The Bloodprint
