    I'm not quite sure what to think of this book! It was a fast read and the world that is built is definitely interesting. But I spent a lot of the book wondering how it was even possible. The Big Science Reveal at the end of the book still wasn't quite enough to suspend my disbelief...

    I wanted to really like this book, but in the end, I was put off by the teenage angst, and the girl having to be repeatedly rescued by men, rather than herself. I doubt if I'll be continuing on with the series. ...

    I found Sarah Tarkoff via Littsburgh, which celebrates all of us writers and publishing pros with ties to Pittsburgh. And then I read the opening of Sinless, and I was hooked. This is, indeed, beautifully written. Tarkoff is the real deal, there's no doubt about that. So why only...

    Such an interesting concept, having your good and bad deeds reflected in your appearance! Unlike some of the recent YA, futuristic, dystopian books out there, the concept in this book, especially after the later revel, seems actually plausible. And that is terrifying. That's something ...

    Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy When I pick up a new dystopian novel, I'm always hopeful that the author will put a new spin on the genre. But at it's core, SINLESS is nothing new. Tarkoff has found a different, problematic way to divide society, but the same beats exist...

    Sinless by Sarah Tarkoff is the first novel in the Eye of the Beholder trilogy. This is a YA novel with very strong adult crossover appeal. The story is told from the point of view of Grace Luther, the teenage daughter of a cleric. The setting is the near future America after the Revel...

    Grace barely remembers what life was like before Great Spirit was there to personally ensure every person on earth lived a rightous life. Since Great Spirit let their will be known via the Prophets, the righteous, pious and good are rewarded with beauty and health. Any wrongful act is ...

    A compelling tale that grips you from the very first page. Not only is this story fascinating and Grace an endearing character, this is a book that incites high emotions. Faith is expected to be a journey of individuals. Each person finding their own way in a dark, confusing cacoph...

    This book was too much hopeless-teen-girl-saves-the-world. She repeatedly screws up and has to be rescued by men. Gah! ...

    I read this as part of my job as a sensitivity reader for the second book, so I will not be rating/reviewing either of the books for professional purposes. ...

    Snappy writing and short chapters makes this book fly by quickly. Disappointingly, main character is the least interesting element in the narrative. ...

    I loved this book! The concept of good and evil manifesting in physical appearance is fascinating. But this book is much more than teenage angst and young love. Concepts of religion, spirituality, politics, and social class really challenge the reader to ponder their own actions (real ...

    I have mixed feelings about this book because though the plot was interesting, the book as a whole was kind of dull. But short chapters made it easy to get through. I may read book 2 when it comes out but I'm not certain. ...

    If you like a smartly written story that makes you think while at the same time never fails to entertain you, if you like a compelling protagonist with a real arc who actively takes part in the story, I couldn't recommend this book more. It is indeed a page turner that will not stop su...

    Sigh. This book had so much potential... Sinless had such a wonderful premise, but it fell short because of its lack of emotional depth and teenage angst. Always the TEENAGE ANGST. I'm so over it. ...

    An intriguing sci-fi setting that kept me wanting to dig for more answers alongside the protaganist. The writing was reminiscent of the agency and sense of discovery in Animorphs as the characters take saving the world and seeing beyond the surface of things into their own hands. While...

    This was a great read - fast paced, with a unique vision of a future world. The story is compelling and, while its an easy and fun read, it also presents the reader with serious moral/ethical questions about the price of peace, organized religion, conformity, and the role of beauty in ...

    Sinless is a masterfully written, especially considering that this is Tarkoff?s debut novel. It is a refreshingly original take on the dystopian genre, which has become so overused in recent years due to its immense popularity. The characters are well developed and the progression of...

    2 stars It was a quick read, but sadly I didn't feel much. (view spoiler)[I think that the Prophet was supposed to be "creepy" but all they ever said was that he basically "radiated holiness." *shrug* When someone radiates holiness, they don't exactly give off a creepy vibe. It migh...

    Sinless is complex in its themes, yet felt effortless in its execution. It?s the kind of book you keep thinking about once you?ve finished reading? I already can?t wait to see where the author takes us in the second part of this trilogy! ...

    Bien que Sarah Tarkoff a déjà (co)-scénarisé plusieurs épisodes de télévision (incluant plusieurs de la série Arrow), il s'agit de son premier roman et ce dernier est impressionnant de par sa maîtrise de la plume et on n'a pas l'impression de lire un scénario de série télé...

    A brilliantly written, page turning novel that hooks you from the start. Sarah Tarkoff has a way of capturing the reader and reeling them in with relatable characters in a dystopian world that somehow feels so entirely plausible. Short chapters make it easy to read for the young adul...

    The world in which being "good" makes one beautiful and being "bad" makes one ugly is fascinating. It has a quick-moving plot, with lots of twists and turns, but also invites you to think about deeper issues of what is good vs. evil. I couldn't put this one down! The only downside is t...

    It's a fast-paced story set in the near future where good and bad are manifested in a person's looks. It was hard to put down. The concept of this Dystopian world is very intriguing and makes you really think about right and wrong, religion vs. science and to always question your reali...
