Flames in the Night by Connilyn Cossette

45689850. sy475


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 cannot even begin to tell you how much I loved this story and I'm sad to see this series end. To me, this series went rather quickly it was just that good! Connilyn has done such a great job with this series!
Biblical fiction is such a favorite of mine!  (I fell in love when I read Jill Eilleen Smith's Sari).
When I seen the book Counted with the Stars I knew I had to try it. Well, I became a forever fan of Connilyn Cossette. 
Her writing will make sure that you will fall in love with her characters. 
I love how she makes you feel like you are in the story and can feel all their hopes, dreams and fears at the same time.
Flames in the Night will capture you and not leave you alone until you are done.
Especially Tirzah. She's simply an amazing woman of her time! Her strength and determination to drive out the enemy and do it the right way truly amazes me.
Whenever we are hurt, angry or frightened we tend to do rash things and tend to go headlong into trouble no matter the circumstances.
I've done that have you? 
Flames in the Night in my opinion is the best read by Connilyn Cossette. 
I the loved the research that went into this book to make a favorite story of 2020
This series is based on the book of Judges. 
I was NOT disappointed with this story! 
Connilyn has wrapped up this series with this powerful story that will leave you thinking about the book long after it is done! In fact I cried when it was done because I really hated to say goodbye to Tirzah, Lyiam and the others but guess what? God's love will always remain. 
I strongly recommend this book! 
My thanks to Bethany House and the author for a complimentary copy of this book!
I was NOT required to write a positive review and all opinions are my own
