Reviewed by Samantha Rivera for Readers' Favorite

Once a happy-go-lucky pre-med student with a full life and a happy marriage ahead of her, Tara has now found herself in the middle of something that she can’t understand. If having a virgin pregnancy that no one believed in wasn’t bad enough, there are now some who flock to her with the belief that her child is the new messiah, or the Antichrist. Unsure which is the better option, unsure even what her baby really is, Tara is determined to find the answer to her pregnancy and to Fimi’s existence. She will travel far and wide and trust (though not entirely) a variety of people she otherwise never would have believed again. There are many secrets to be understood about Fimi and, before she can learn them, Tara will have to learn more about the past in The Unbelievers by Lisa Lilly.

I was drawn into the story of Tara and Fimi right from the start. Characters like Kali, Cyril, Lynette, Pete and Kelly will definitely draw you in as well. Each character is easy to relate to and they all have very realistic personalities. I loved that each character had flaws that made them seem real rather than being completely perfect. I also loved the way that this book took a subject that could have been highly religious and made it less so. The new messiah possibly being born to an agnostic or possibly even atheist woman made it interesting. I couldn’t stop reading and went through the entire book in just over a day. The Unbelievers is a book I would recommend to all my friends.
