Until the Mountains Fall is the third book in the Cities of Refuge series by Connilyn Cossette. It can be read indepently, I did that because I got an e-arc for this book, but I ordered book 1&2 immediately after finishing this book because there are characters from former books making an appearances and I’ve become so curious after their stories! There is a fourth book coming, too! Yay!

The book starts with Rivkah, who was recently widowed and is now promised to the younger brother. There is barely any time to grieve, and Rivkah’s very understandably unhappy with the situation, especially because she disliked Malakhai, who bullied her when they were still kids. And though he tries his best and seems changed, he is very capable of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. She seems out of options and runs away, only running away might make it actually worse.

Malakhai can’t let Rivkah go, he has been secretly in love with her for years, and after he has searched everywhere, he leaves for the army.

Of course their paths are destined to cross again one day, but many things have changed - and some things have not.

This was such an exciting read! A bit too much since I read through the night again. I never learn. The story was so good, you really get to understand both Rivkah and Malakhai, they are both very likable characters and they’ve grown so much through the books, both in maturity and faith.

Also, I live for all the wonderful family dynamics. The family is huge yet it’s easy to tell everyone apart. They’re quite unique and I can’t wait to read their stories.

The story never got boring and the pacing was just right. It was so interesting to read about the early days of Israel and the refuge cities! It felt very real to me. The ending was quite spectacular and full of action and redemption and well... basically exactly how I like my endings.

I’m extremely happy I received an e-arc from Bethany&Netgalley! It has not influenced my opinion except my hopes are always higher where Bethany is concerned because I love their published books. This was once again a masterpiece.
