SUMMARY (from Goodreads):
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.
When the authors contacted me about being apart of this blog tour, I did not hesitate to sign up. I looked up the book, and I was really intrigued by the concept of the dystopian with the even deadly sins.
Needless to say, BRANDED did not disappoint. I loved the relationship between Lexi and Cole, and Zeus is my favorite literary dog ever. I LOVE THAT BIG GREAT DANE SO MUCH!!
I grew to really like the writing, even though it kind of annoyed me at first. It had a very nice flow to it, and made the book a very fast read. The pacing was also PERFECT. It was never too slow or too fast.
The only thing I had a problem with was the world. I wish it was explained more, and exactly how the Commander thought the deadly sins were the cause of conflict. But that is just a minor thing. It didn't really detract from the book.
Overall, BRANDED was a fantastic book. I highly recommend it!
CONTENT: This book is most definitely NOT clean. If anyone has objections to sex and violence, I would not recommend reading it.
