~Book’s Description From NetGalley~

Something is killing off immortals, one by one.
Taelen Jessit is an alien emissary on a mission sanctioned by the U.S. government to search for ancient gods. His hunt leads him to a dig headed by archaeologist Rachel Cruz. When his military entourage forces Rachel's team out of the cave they were exploring, a flash flood hits the riverbed and threatens to tear them through the ravine.
In the aftermath of the flood, Taelen witnesses the incredible healing of Rachel's broken ankle and believes his gods have blessed her. He is inexplicably drawn to her, and she to him.
What Taelen doesn't know is that Rachel is Nephilim-a descendant of the gods his people worship-masquerading as a human to find the god-killer and destroy it. Rachel needs help to bring down the tech that is manipulating the Earth's magnetosphere and frying her people alive. She's given Taelen her heart, but can she trust him with her secret?

~My Review~

True Believers blew my expectations out of the water! It is a thrilling sci-fi romance that is story driven and intense until the very end. Masterfully crafted characters and settings keep you immersed and connected to the story.

Rachel is Nephilim - a powerful race that had been hiding in plain sight on our world for centuries. They are close to being found by another alien race that sees them as Gods and has traced them across the universe in search of divinity.

The humans want them dead, the Altruians want to worship them, and Rachel...well she's not sure what she wants, but she is drawn to commander Taelen like no other.

I love it when a romance is so gripping and full of adventure that you forget you're reading in the genre. This is definitely one of the best sci-fi romanaces I have ever read, and it makes me want to read more of them.

My Rating: 5/5
