Biblical Fiction

Between The Wild Branches By Connilyn Cosette. A Review

Finding a Way to Freedom Might Cost Them Everything

Lukio has spent the past decade as a famous Philistine fighter, achieving every material goal with the help of his ruthless cousin. He’s also spent the time burying painful memories of betrayal that he associates with the Levite family that guards the Ark of the Covenant and once adopted him. Now, just as the champion of Ashdod is set to claim the biggest prize of all–the daughter of the king–his past collides with his present.

After a heartbreaking end to her friendship with Lukio, Shoshana thought she’d never again see the boy with the dual-colored eyes and the troubled soul. But when she is captured in a Philistine raid and enslaved in Ashdod, she is surprised to recognize the brutal fighter known as Demon Eyes.

When their renewed connection threatens to expose Shoshana’s dangerous secrets, Lukio must decide how far he’ll go to face his past and keep her protected.

“Cossette’s ability to bring biblical times and its rich cultures authentically to life is, in a word, glorious.”–Historical Novels Review

My Thoughts

This was yet another beautifully written story by the author. I loved getting to know more about Lukio and what had become of him.
From the start, the story pulls you in. I wanted to know what happens next.
Both Lukio and Shoshana have been through so much in their young lives and it keeps getting more interesting.
The growth process throughout the story especially Lukio’s journey to maturity from the angry young man to a steadfast, honest and reliable person despite all he has been through. His love for Shoshana unrivaled and her response to the challenges she has been through despite everything, she’s strong.
This story pulls you in and you never know what would come up next. From betrayal and every other thing in between the twists and turns make it all the more interesting but also beautiful. Making it difficult to say goodbye in the end.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. All opinions expressed are solely mine.
