Nafiza Azad: The Candle and the Flame Nafiza Azad: The Candle and the Flame

Fatima lives in the city of Noor, a thriving stop along the Silk Road. There the music of myriad languages fills the air, and people of all faiths weave their lives together. However, the city bears scars of its recent past, when the chaotic tribe of Shayateen djinn slaughtered its entire population – except for Fatima and two other humans. Now ruled by a new maharajah, Noor is protected from the Shayateen by the Ifrit, djinn of order and reason, and by their commander, Zulfikar.

But when one of the most potent of the Ifrit dies, Fatima is changed in ways she cannot fathom, ways that scare even those who love her. Oud in hand, Fatima is drawn into the intrigues of the maharajah and his sister, the affairs of Zulfikar and the djinn, and the dangers of a magical battlefield.

Nafiza Azad weaves an immersive tale of magic and the importance of names; fiercely independent women; and, perhaps most importantly, the work for harmony within a city of a thousand cultures and cadences.

Death is not uncommon to the Ifrit, and violent deaths are more frequent than they should be. However, the Name Giver’s death has more consequences than the death of a common Ifrit soldier. Zulfikar feels detached from the scene, as if he is observing everything through some great distance. Though he did not know the Name Giver well—you cannot really know a pillar in your house—his importance, his wisdom, his grace are all things that Zulfikar aspires to. When such a man has been reduced to ashes, how do you grieve? When the pillar is broken, your house will fall.

You can’t judge an entire population of a people by the actions of a select few. You can’t use your grief and your sorrow to justify your hate and your discrimination.

“Do you think you can command me to come with you and I will happily oblige?” Fatima Ghazala asks as if genuinely curious.
“Well, actually, yes,” Zulfikar replies. That is generally the way things work in the human world when you are the Emir.
“Is that how they usually do it in Al-Naar? Do men command and women rush to obey?” she asks next, and Zulfikar flushes. He imagines his sisters’ responses to that question and shudders slightly.
“Not quite,” he says, not meeting the new Name Giver’s eyes.
“It doesn’t work that way here either,” Fatima Ghazala says.
