Publisher's Summary

Tara Spencer is the new mother of a baby girl - one who, by all accounts, should not exist.
And though her worries go far beyond diapers and feeding times, she finds herself settling comfortably into the community of Willow Springs, away from the prying eyes of The Brotherhood religious order and former-flame-turned-betrayer Cyril Woods.
But when her daughter goes missing and her best friend is violently attacked, Tara's newfound sense of security comes to a screeching halt. She realizes that nowhere will be safe until she solves the mystery of her virgin pregnancy once and for all.
While DNA testing seems to lead to more questions than answers, Tara struggles to separate friend from foe - until a series of shocking discoveries finally shed light on the greater meaning behind her unusual situation.
In the stunning second installment of The Awakening series, societal roles are tested and religious norms questioned in a thrilling, paranormal pause resister combining elements of Rosemary's Baby and The Da Vinci Code.

A great second book.

Any additional comments?

I liked book 1 well enough that I continued onto this, and I'm glad to say that this is better than the first. You are brought into the story from the very start and will be eagerly listening to see what happens.

Tara's daughter was born at the end of book 1, and Tara hopes that things will be different now that she is here, but she is wrong. She and her daughter are in more danger than ever with everyone wanting to know what she is. With her daughter in more danger, Tara decides that it's necessary to leave her behind and travel further to get the answers she needs to survive.

Tara has really grown since book 1. She now has, not only herself, but her daughter to think of, and it's really brought her strength forward. She makes tough decisions in this one and knows that for them to be safe, she needs answers. She leaves her daughter in her families hands and travels to some remote places in search of who her daughter may be. With some thinking she is the messiah and some thinking she is still the anti christ, Tara knows deep down that her daughter is special, but she needs to know why.

We see different POVs in this one, which I liked a lot. We have Taras fathers perspective, which gives an insight to who he is and why he wanted her committed when he thought she was lying, though he still finds it hard to believe!! We see Cyril back too, though I still haven't forgiven him for what he did to Tara, and I'm glad she doesn't either! Both of these play an important part to the overall story and I liked seeing it from their view.

The plot of this one is really fast paced and intense. Some of the mysteries are unraveled and some of the questions from book 1 are answered but we are left with even more than before! We are also left with quite a cliffhanger. In all honesty, I thought the book was missing pages because it stopped so abruptly. It just seems to end all of a shot and it left me reeling. I was like, How can it be left like that!!!! I need the next one yesterday ;)

In all, this is an intriguing and thrilling read. It will make you think, it will grab you and leave you wanting more, it will entwine you into the story till you turn the last page, or in my case, listen to the last minute. It's an interesting story and I can't wait for the next one.

The narrator for this one is different than the first, and I'm glad for the change. Shiromi Arserio was great. She is pleasant to listen to and really gives her all. She brought the characters and story alive and I hope she narrates #3!!

Good book

A good page turner of a story. I really liked this book. I enjoyed the complexity of the characters. . I think the author did a good job developing the characters and creating an interesting story that will leave you guessing as to who is good and who is bad. And what does everyone truly want ? I look forward to book 3 and highly recommend this series.

I found the narrator to be very good at reading the book as well as giving the characters life and voice.

A great second book

Would you listen to The Unbelievers again? Why?

The plot is really fast paced and very intense. Some of the mysteries are unraveled and some of the questions from book 1 are answered, however by the end we are left with even more than before! We are also left with quite an interesting cliffhanger.

All in a great book.

What other book might you compare The Unbelievers to, and why?

Comparisons are not good as you might not like the book I compare it too and this is a great book. Jump on in and enjoy the adventure.

What does Shiromi Arserio bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Shiromi Arserio is very pleasant to listen to and really gets into the story without over acting. She brought the characters and story alive and I hope she narrates the next one.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This is what I would call a paranormal mystery and I'm completely engaged with the story line. It's very well written, the character's are well developed and it's really been a great book.

The Unbelievers

Would you try another book written by Lisa M. Lilly or narrated by Shiromi Arserio?

I read The Awakening,I like the narrator...not keen on the story

Would you be willing to try another book from Lisa M. Lilly? Why or why not?


Was The Unbelievers worth the listening time?

not to me

Any additional comments?

I found this book to be very long and hard to keep track of the many characters.The original story was not as complicated but as we find more and more 'chosen women' and who is a 'believer' and who is got boring to me.
