In Grace Luther’s world, morality is physically enforced. Those who are "good" are blessed with beauty, while those who are not suffer horrifying consequences—disfigurement, or even death. When the cleric’s daughter stumbles onto information that proves her world is more complicated than it seems, she finds herself at the center of an epic battle where good and evil are no...
What a fantastic read! Sarah Tarkoff created a remarkable world in which to tell this story! The details, characters, and twists are astounding!

For you clean-readers: this one does NOT have mature content.
I loved the sci-fi elements along with the love story. It was a great blend of the two and I loved every page. I can't wait for the next two!!!!
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 adult (or the busy adult) and I could easily see this being made into a movie or series!
Looking forward to her future novels!
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!
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 surpassing you, a very well rounded story and over all just a good read.
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 that now I have to wait for the sequel!
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 Grace Luther, the protagonist, through the novel proves to be an insightful story. In describing the world of Sinless, Tarkoff strikes a perfect balance between creating a world that is familiar to our own, yet just
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 Grace Luther, the protagonist, through the novel proves to be an insightful story. In describing the world of Sinless, Tarkoff strikes a perfect balance between creating a world that is familiar to our own, yet just different enough to make it so captivating. The themes and events of the novel are just as thought provoking as entertaining. I’m very much interested in seeing where Tarkoff takes the rest of this series and I hope it gains more mainstream popularity in the coming years.
Overall, it’s a fairly quick read as most of it relies on dialogue. It can be read in a day or two. I would highly recommend it to anyone, who, like me, typically reads mainly dense academic literature and are looking for a small break from their usual habits.
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 our judgement of others, Definitely recommend!
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.
