I was pleasantly surprised by this story. I thought I would enjoy it but I didn’t expect it to pull me in from the very first page the way it did. I really liked the characters but I liked the couple of unexpected twist in the story even more! Pariah was a book that I was eager to read and didn’t want to put down. Would recommend to everyone!

Wow! This book wrapped me in its magical world from the moment I began reading it. I love angel stories and this one was absolutely fantastic. The twists and turns will leave your head spinning (in a very good way). The description of places, characters, ect... made the whole thing even more appealing. As I read I found myself imagining the surroundings and what the characters looked like-- specially Riven-- that boy sounded mighty fine. Well, now that I've finished reading it, I wish I had book ...more

I was give a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I lovey Casey and everything she writes so going into this book I knew I would enjoy it. Lots of twist and turns ; tons of surprises. You'll hate a person one minute and then promise to have his babies the next(or vice versa I'm really not at liberty to say;) Anyway, there are so many twist that I don't really want to try and summarize for fear that I will ruin something for you.
Just read the dang book already!

So, when I entered this giveaway, I didn't expect to win. I was so excited that I couldn't go to sleep without at least starting it. I read the prologue, something I almost never do, and was disappointed. The whole religious aspect made me nervous because I've never read one of those types of books. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the main plot of this book didn't revolve around it.
This novel is about Solara, a beautiful girl that's never really experienced life. Days before being re

**I proofread this novel for the author**

I had not idea what I was getting myself into when Ms. Casey asked me to proofread her novel, Pariah. I started working on it and my work was put by the wayside for a moment while the story pulled me. I couldn't make myself slow down to proofread. I read it in a few hours and then I had to sit and wrap head what I had just read. I was like WOW!

I am a huge lover of religion and the spiritual aspect of religion is brought forward in this book. Please don't

This is a good book, just not for me.

This book was a different take on the fallen angel stories I’ve read. It’s a clean book, and it kept my attention but it’s just not my kind of book. After God almost destroys the earth by fire, a prophecy is made that a beautiful female will be born in the summer, when she turns seventeen if she is the chosen her eyes will change and the mark of both heaven and hell will appear upon her back. The fate of humanity is in her hands. But in these new times life i

Such a great book. I absolutely loved it! There is plenty of action and suspense and even a little bit of love all mixed together into an amazing book.

Solara is a girl who is strong, caring, and lovable. She has lived her entire life in a tower and she cannot wait to gain her freedom. It is the one thing she has always dreamt about. She is relieved to be married and out of the tower. She gets much more than she bargains for on her wedding night. Now she has to figure out what is in store for her

I was lucky enough to have won this book. WOW, what a book. At first I was doubtful due to the prologue, but thought I would give it a chance. I'm glad I did. The characters are well developed and the story itself draws you in. I hated to put the book down and was surprised when I finished it, it just didn't last long enough. The plot of the story is awesome and definitely a few twists. I am definitely looking forward to the next book. Solara, the main character, is most definitely not a damsel ...more

It left me wanting more... I can't Wait for the next book!!

There were alot of twists in this book. Some I couldn't believe.. Esp. with Faric and Riven.. WOW!! I was surprised to say the least..

Solara has been kept prisoner for all of her childhood because she is a potential. People have lied to her all her life. Now she must decided who to trust.. She will go through so many things is such a short time.

I'm trying not to give any spoilers but if put what i really want to say i may spoil it...

OH MY GOODNESS!! I can't even explain how much I loved this book although I will try.

I absolutely fell in love with the characters in this book. They were amazing, I felt like I was along for the ride with them. I felt like they became friends. I felt a variety of emotions; happy, sad, frustration, anger, relief, angst, among others. I was sad when the book ended, I cannot wait to see what happens next for Solara. The plot twists had me on the edge of my seat. I had a hard time putting this book

Amazing!!

I was gifted a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review.
This unique book will draw you in from the first page, and captivate through out the entire book. This book will have you laughing, crying, falling in love, and so much more. In this book you meet Riven, Lara, Lil, and a lot more characters that most of them you will come to love.
Casey Bond did amazing job keeping you guessing the entire book. It's definitely a must read. I look forward to the next book in this series,

I received this book in a Goodread Giveaway.

I wasn't really sure what to think of the book based on the synopsis. The concept seemed very interesting and it turned out to be. But the dialogue in the book was very awkward sometimes. When Solara would try to be playful or flirtatious it always seemed to take an awkward/uncomfortable turn. The concept of the book was very good and completely different from anything I've read or seen before. I think I would have enjoyed the story much better had it

What an interesting and exciting story line. I just loved Solara and enjoyed following her story. The only thing that threw me off a bit was some of the phrases and slag used seemed to feel out of place. They were modern terms and for me it didn't flow as easily as the other dialog. The twists and turns that the story took I never saw coming. It surprised and excited me. I was on the edge of my seat! This world is so full of back story and I loved discovering the secrets and hope to discover mor ...more

LOVE it. Can't wait for the sequel to find out what happens. There is a complex web of characters, but they enertwine so brilliantly. Casey is an amazing writer and I have no doubts she'll go far.

Not for me

This book was OK. It was well written and interesting but I just didn't feel connected to it. I am not sure as to why I didn't enjoy this as much as I expected to.
