Pariah by Casey L. Bond [SBM Reivew]


What are the things that you need most in life—the things you crave? 

Solara longs for freedom. Having been raised under the Kingdom’s lock and key since the age of two, she wants to see the world. Upon turning seventeen and receiving no mark from the Lord, she believes freedom is finally within her grasp. Unfortunately, she is wrong. 

The Kingdom has been fooled. She is marked by an angel of light and one of the fallen dark ones. Solara is God’s chosen, and with her birth, the new covenant made with mankind is made manifest. 

Solara also longs for love, strong enough to last a lifetime, and beyond. Riven loves her. But is one of the fallen prophesied to betray the chosen. Can she trust him? Love him? Prophesy states that she is the key. The fate of humanity rests with her decision. She alone will determine whether the doors of Heaven or the gates of Hell open upon the Earth. 

But how can a normal girl, who has been raised with no knowledge of either side, make such a decision? And how can she turn away from finally tasting those things she has craved for so long. 

***Please note: This is a young adult fantasy novel. It is not a work of Christian fiction and may not be suitable for young teens.*** 

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 more.
