Counted with the Stars Out from Egypt #1 By: Connilyn Cossette I love the cover of the beautiful Egyptian lady really is unique it’s like she is overseeing the land of Egypt. The title is actually what caught my eyes first I had to find out what Counted With the Stars was all about. This is a story of Kiya she’s a young Egyptian girl sold into slavery by someone that should have loved her not sold her. Why would someone do that knowing how most slaves is treated? As you travel through the pages of this beautiful book back in the times of Mose you will see the pages start to come alive. Maybe you’ll even hear the sounds of a whips hitting the slaves or hear the screams that’s on their lips, feel the sun so hot you can barely stand it or cries of many of the slaves to their God that are being slaughter for no reason other than the Masters or overseers feel they should be punished for their God Yehweh. These poor slaves were worked to death very few lived to be 35-40 yrs of age. As you’ll see Kiya’s Mistress always tried to find a reason to humiliate Kiya in front of everyone. Only a couple of girls became Kiya friends or are the something other then what they seem? The plaques started and Kiya wonders who is this strange God that has such power that the magic can’t touch him and the God’s that are all around her inside and outside of the palace can’t touch him either or take the plaques away. Will Kiya learn of this God that she can’t see and start to trust him over her own God’s that she can see? This was a page turner for sure I hated to see it end can’t wait for the second book to come out. A must buy if you like these kinds of books although it is fiction it really has some truth to it. I never read any of her books but I’ll add her to my list of authors I like. I received this book free from Bethany House for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review only an honest one. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s. 5 Stars ISBN 978-0-7642-1437-0
