I couldn't stop reading this book, once I started.
It is an interesting concept, with several twists and turns.
Caged is not another book about a woman being tortured, abused and isolated from the world.
It is more than that. It has magic and it is funny, creative and fresh.
There is a certain wisdom beyond the book's words; and the author has the ability to write the words in an uncommonly fresh way. ( )

Author Onaiza Khan's novel Caged billed as a psychological thriller novel, is without question more. Kidnapped by her new husband and kept locked in her room for three months, she begins to lose touch with reality. She remembers abuse, hurting, and hearing another person screams of terror and pain.

What is real and what is not? There is more to her story than appears on the surface.


Although not my cup of tea, I can without hesitation state the author developed the characters, varied story-lines, and for a new author the writing was well-done. I did not find the editing problems mentioned in other reviews. Also, the pace of story was in line with the length of the novel.

With a variety of characters, an original story-line and the correct audience, Caged will be a hit. Nothing is as it seems in the beginning of the story. The author keeps the reader guessing about who is and is not the good guy of the story. As well as, what is really happening with Noor. Her situation is not what it seems at first glance. As a result, the story takes a turn towards the paranormal. I can not really say more without giving away huge spoilers.

Finally, in concluding my psychological thriller novel review of Caged, I found the story-line and concept original. Caged is not your standard psychological thriller.


In addition, though not my cup of tea, I felt due to the originality, concept, and pacing, Caged deserved 4 stars.


Additionally, I received this book from the author and chose to voluntarily review the book with an honest psychological thriller novel review. Lastly, book reviews of any novel are dependent on the book review author’s opinion. Consequently, all book reviews on-line and on my blog, are my opinions. In addition, the ARC did not affect my voluntary psychological thriller novel review. ( )

Much has been written about long-term captives developing relationships with their captors. In this book, Khan explores what happens when a husband imprisons his wife. Psychological elements create tension and interplay between Noor, her husband, another prisoner, and relatives. The plot relies more on characters that have magical powers than any meaningful character development. There is some graphic violence. The story line shows promise but is not well executed. ( )

This was a really interesting read. Noor is a newlywed and is being held hostage by her husband. He seems to really like her and doesn't seem cruel so why he is holding her against her will is a mystery. Like the main character I wasn't sure what was going on at first then details started evolving and the mystery only deepened.

There were moments in this book that left me really confused, others that didn't seem to work and ones that were totally on point.

Overall the premise is very good, the writing could use some work but it was not a bad read. ( )
