Summery: Fifty years ago the Commander came into power and murdered all who opposed him. In his warped mind, the seven deadly sins were the downfall of society. He created the Hole where sinners are branded according to their sins and might survive a few years. At best.

Now LUST wraps around my neck like blue fingers strangling me. I’ve been accused of a crime I didn’t commit and now the Hole is my new home.

Darkness. Death. Violence. Pain.

Now every day is a fight for survival. But I won’t die. I won’t let them win.

The Hole can’t keep me. The Hole can’t break me.
I am more than my brand. I’m a fighter.
My name is Lexi Hamilton, and this is my story.

My goodness what a book, i have a lot to say about the book but i am gonna keep it short as possible. Now First the start was freaking depressing, there was moments i was in tears or i really close to tears.

And second i freaking love Lexi and Cole and my goodness how awesome was Zeus? Can i have him as my dog? There was a lot of good characters in the book, but My favorite would have to be Alyssa. She made me cry so much and her personalty was perfect. She was such a awesome character and to me the bravest. There is some characters that will have you rage, and when i say some i mean a lot.

I do want to point out that i do like the book, but Branded can get really detailed on a few subjects that can be hard to read, not that it was bad but it just was so depressingly detailed that made it hard to read. it only happens a couple times in the book. Branded can get really deep with a lot of emotions good and bad.

Branded defiantly had a lot of shocking twists that did suppressed me. I really loved how the book ended it was really bittersweet and touching but you also knew that it wasn’t over, there was more danger to come.  I honestly loved the book. There was a few minor flaws in the book but noting that ruins the overall impact that branded has.

I don’t recommend all readers. The book does touch a lot of sensitive topics like child abuse and rape. That some readers might not want to read about. But really i don’t usually like books that touch those topics but branded and the overall story it just worked for me. without those sensitive topics we wouldn’t have Lexi and who she is. there was not a single Dull moment in this book and it is very fast paste that will have readers flowing with the words. It is a overall a page turner. I want to keep going on and on about the book, but i also don’t want to giveaway too much of the story. Read it for yourself and tell me what you all thought about it. Like i said i don’t recommend all readers but i do recommend it.
