The Awakening Series

 

Tara folded and unfolded the pink referral slip. Her fingers made sweat marks on the paper. “I can’t be pregnant. I haven’t had sex.” 

Lisa M. Lilly’s heart pounding novel, The Awakening, tells the story of one young woman who finds her life at risk over a phenomenon she cannot understand.

Tara Spencer is at a loss. She has recently learned she’s pregnant, despite never having had sex. Her fiancé breaks up with her, convinced she cheated on him, and even her parents and best friend doubt her story.

But when Cyril Woods, a member of The Brotherhood religious order, claims to believe that Tara is still a virgin, she feels she has finally found understanding.

The Brotherhood sees Tara’s child as a possible new messiah—that is, until they learn she is expecting a girl. This revelation convinces them that the child is actually the anti-Christ, and they are determined to prevent Tara from giving birth at any cost.

As the forces aligned against her close in, Tara's only hope for survival is to solve the mystery of her pregnancy.  But who is her friend and who is her enemy?

Will Tara find answers before it's too late?

The Unbelievers (Book 2 in The Awakening Series) is now available.

What people are saying...

  • THE AWAKENING is a little gem of a thriller with a huge concept that rivals Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code....The plotting is ingenious and fast-paced, with edge-of-your seat scenes and unsuspected twists and turns that are the hallmarks of well-done thrillers....skillfully written and has well-drawn characters for whom you genuinely care.
  • ...tightly written, with realistic and good dialogue, as well as very suspenseful, with an element of the Da Vinci Code

     

  • I was hooked from Page 1. It is very fast-paced and it kept me interested at every turn. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

     

Do You Read Trash? 30 Jun 2015 | 5:49 pm
Have you ever heard someone say with an air of apology, “I read trash”? Or has anyone dismissed what you read that way? Once a friend referred to an early Mary Higgins Clark book as trash. If Clark has heard her work called that, I imagine she doesn’t lose sleep over it given that she’s known as the Queen of Suspense, has sold over 100 million books in her lifetime, and receives advances of over $10 million per novel. But the comment made me wonder, what is it that makes one book or author more likely than another to be...
