Book Review: Like Flames in the Night

From The Back:

Strong-willed Tirzah wants to join her people in driving the enemy from the land of Israel and undergoes training for a secret mission inside the stronghold of Shechem. But soon after she has infiltrated the ruthless Aramean commander's kitchen, she makes a reckless decision that puts her and her allies in grave danger.

Fresh off the battlefield, Liyam returns home to discover his beloved daughter is dead. After his vow to hunt down her killer leads to months of fruitless pursuit, his last hope is in a family connection that comes with strings attached--strings that force him to pose as a mercenary and rescue an infuriating woman who refuses to leave her mission uncompleted.

When an opportunity to pave a path to a Hebrew victory arises, can Tirzah convince Liyam to fight alongside her in the refuge city of her birth? Or will Liyam's thirst for vengeance outweigh his duty to his people, his God, and the woman he's come to love?
My Reflections:
I absolutely love biblical fiction done well. You can consistently count on Connilyn Cossette to do her homework. She creates a canvas where the story grips you and takes you to the colourful world of 1367 BC.
Cossette has the gift of bringing her characters to life with their very tangible emotions, burdens and plights.

This fourth book in the "Cities Of Refuge" focuses on the period when The Arameans conquered the promised land and the oppression of the Hebrews.
Tirzah a young widow is a determined young woman who wants to help aid in the fight against the Aramean occupation of Judah's cities and vast land. A woman spy is the last thing I would have expected in this period, but her skill and determination turn her pleas into reality. She becomes an Imposter as a Shechem cook, trading secrets with her brother who holds the astute position as leader of the fighting forces.

Rich in history and vibrant writing make this a very interesting read. A perfect ending to this series! If you love biblical fiction as much as I do. I know you won't be disappointed with "Like Flames In The Night"
