Daughters of Smoke and Fire is one of the most powerful sample of miseries and sufferings of a whole nation (Kurds) at the hand of occupiers on their lands. This novel is not a story out of imagination of AVA HOMA the brilliant story teller but it is a true story of everyday life of 50 milion Kurds in Kurdistan of Iran, Iraq, Syria & Turkey.
AVA HOMA in her novel taken a drop from the ocean of daily agony, anguish, murder, torture, genocide and ethnocide of Kurds but daringly tell us scene by scene of her story and not only that but control the reader to stay with her to see and engage smoothly with what Chia, Laila and the rest suffered from the first paragraph to the last scene.

I knew nothing about Kurdistan before reading this book but glad to have been recommended this. It's a moving story and I wish I could get everyone to read this.
Amazing, Amazing, AmazingReviewed in Canada on 23 May 2020
This book kept me glued to my reading, and I finished it in just a few days. It is fiction based on historical facts and transcends any culture. It is so wonderfully written, fast paced and the characters could be anyone of us and our neighbours. Written in the first person, I felt like viewing the events first hand. If you read any book this year, this has to be the one! Great debut novel by this talented author!
