Shelter of the Most High by Connilyn Cossette

Shelter of the Most High is the second book in the Cities of Refuge series by Connilyn Cossette. The book begins in Sicily where cousins Sofea and Prezi are exploring the sea and the caves as they always do. Tragedy strikes as their village is attacked and all of their family members are killed. The cousins are captured and fighting for their lives, but they manage to escape and survive. By God's grace, they are rescued by none other than Darek. Darek takes Sofea and Prezi to Kedesh where Moriyah nurtures and protects them. Eitan is now a young adult and it doesn't take long for Sofea to catch his eye. Eitan and Sofea begin a sweet romance. However, danger is always around the corner because Darek's brother Raviv is still determined to seek revenge for the death of his sons.

This book continues years after the events of the first book in this series, A Light on the Hill. There is just so much included in this book and Connilyn Cossette draws you right in from the very first chapter. The amount of research she has done is astounding. It is also so interesting to see her interpretation of what might have happened in the Bible times as she fills in the blanks with her imagination. I enjoyed this book so much and it is definitely one of my top reads of the year so far. The third book in the series is Until the Mountains Fall and I can't wait to read it. Never have I read a Connilyn Cossette book that I didn't enjoy! This is a 5 star read! Thanks so much to Connilyn Cossette and Bethany House for the chance to read and review this book!
