Mesmerizing: "Shelter of the Most High (Cities of Refuge Book #2)" by Connilyn Cossette
about the book....
The daughter of a pagan high priest, Sofea finds solace from her troubles in the freedom of the ocean. But when marauders attack her village on the island of Sicily, she and her cousin are taken across the sea to the shores of Canaan.
As threats from outside the walls loom and traitors are uncovered within, Sofea and Eitan are plunged into the midst of a murder plot. Can they uncover the betrayal in time to save their lives and the lives of those they love?
"Shelter of the Most High" once again takes place in Kedesh, a city of refuge, and reunites us with characters we first grew to love in the first novel in this series, "A Light on the Hill". But the main character in this novel, Sofea, is who really steals the show (as she should!) as she survives the journey of being captured from the island of Sicily and finds herself encountering the people of God and their mysterious ways. I was mesmerized by Sofea's tale and watching her meet the mercy of a living God, especially how this was contrasted with her own childhood of fear and witnessing pagan rituals such as child sacrifice. The plot is well-paced, with oodles of adventure to keep you hooked from chapter to chapter. And in the midst of the suspense and secrets and betrayal blooms a love that grows so naturally between Sofea and Eitan that you can't help but root for them to overcome the odds and face life together. As to whether they do or not, you'll have to grab a copy for yourself to find out!
This second novel in the Cities of Refuge series is another satisfying tale that will leave you eager for the third and final novel in the series which is set to arrive in Spring 2019. I strongly recommend "Shelter of the Most High", and award it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
