Shelter of the Most High

Shelter of the Most High by Connilyn Cossette is the second book in the “Cities of Refuge” series.  I haven’t always been a fan of biblical fiction, but this series and the author’s previous series have been absolutely incredible.  (Each book can work as a stand-alone but the characters do carry over.)

Sofea and Prezi were just having a relaxing day at the beach when their lives are turned upside down.  Their families are murdered and the girls are captured.  After making a risky escape, the girls find their way into Hebrew territory, where the language is as unfamiliar as the culture.

Eitan, adopted son of Moriyah and Darek from book one of this series, is enthralled with the new girls in town.  There is obviously a language barrier, as well as an unfamiliar God and culture for them, but he is determined to make them feel at home.

I really enjoyed this book; it kept me captivated over the two days that it took me to read it.  The characters gripped me, the setting of the ancient world was fascinating, and the plot was exciting.  I loved everything about it and will continue to recommend this series!
