Tara finds herself pregnant and still a virgin. Her boyfriend, best friend and family all reject her in some way. Almost immediately after finding out she is pregnant she begins a strange and frightening journey. People trying to kill or harm her are the norm. She can't figure out who to trust and who is only after her miracle baby.
A female second messiah is a hard concept to grasp. If you are religious I would recommend suspending reality. Just enjoy the story for the fast paced thriller and brush over the religious and feminist overtures.
That being said I enjoyed the story, but didn't love it. It isn't my typical style, but I could appreciate the details and suspense written into the story. I think my main complaint would be the ending. If you've read any of my reviews you know that I like neat endings with a bow on them. This is not one of those books. A sequel is coming out that may resolve the issue, but for now I was left with more questions than answers.
I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
