Like Flames in the Night | Book Review


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?

I am in love with this book—and Connilyn Cossette’s entire Cities of Refuge series. Like Flames in the Night is the perfect way to conclude the saga that began with Moriyah and Darek.

Caught in a period of turmoil for Israel, Moriyah’s youngest daughter Tirzah determines to help her people as a spy and heads into the Aramean stronghold of Shechem. Meanwhile, grieving father Liyam seeks only vengeance, but his quest also leads him to Shechem—and Tirzah. The story surrounding them then proves to be an epic one as they face countless dangers, thwart their enemies (externally and internally), and even confront the feelings that scare them the most.

Like Flames in the Night is a pleasure to read. Not only is the story between Tirzah and Liyam entertaining, but it also delivers uplifting biblical truths of who God has always been. I cannot recommend it enough. Read this book (and this series) from Connilyn Cossette.

I received a complimentary copy of this book and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
