REVIEW Paranormal Romance
"Sad Tale of Love During the Time of Slavery"
Casey is a young mulatto slave who lives with his mom and the other slaves on a plantation. Casey's mom has always told him to stay away from white boys, but the plantation master's sons, Robert and Larry become Casey's childhood friends. As they get older, the differences in their lives become larger and they grow apart. A series of sad events leads to the horrific rape and murder of Casey's fiancee, Alicia, and Casey sets out to get revenge on her killers, Larry and Robert. Casey also recieves help planning his revenge from an unexpected source: Alicia.
This book was wonderful. The characters are very believable, you can even imagine these are real people and you are an observer watching their lives unfold instead of just reading a story about them. The story is told from Casey's viewpoint. I usually do not like novels that are told from the main character's viewpoint, there seems to be a lot of description and not enough dialogue or action. But the writing in this story is great and it keeps you very interested. There are some surprises and laughs along the way, and the author is able to turn a sad ending into a happy one which will leave you reaching for some tissue to wipe away your tears. This story will appeal to many people and I recommend it highly to everyone.

This book is a very good read. It was so captivating. Caseys World is a book about love, forgiveness, religion, and a strong sense of family. It induces the mind with mixed emotions about loyalty & desire, as well as retaliation and survival. I would recommend this book to all. It is a non-stop read with a very exciting ending. Caseys World by Robert Raymond is a must buy. I cannot wait for his next book!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
