Review - Branded by Abi Ketner & Missy Kalicicki

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 Review:

Super intense, emotionally disturbing and utterly captivating!! Be prepared to be completely consumed by this novel and the amazing writing talent of Abi and Missy. The world they create is so unbelievably vivid, it's almost as if you step out of this one and into theirs watching every scene unfold right before your very eyes. There are so many twists and turns and unlike some novels where you feel there's too much going on, each plot twist is executed perfectly and seamlessly keeping you intrigued and literally on the edge of your seat.

Lexi is an incredible heroine who has faced & overcome many obstacles in her past and while she still suffers from all the trauma she manages to keep going, finding strength in those around her. Life under The Commanders rule is anything but easy. Anyone guilty (which is everyone accused) of committing one of the 7 deadly sins is branded (according to their sin) and sent to The Hole, our modern day version of a jail but worse. Inhabitants are expected to work under the watchful eye of the Guards who are anything but just, and are left to die once they are no longer deemed useful. Survival is key but extremely difficult.

Much like the summary warns, be prepared for violence, death, and darkness. But don't worry there's also love…in all forms: for a father, for a dear friend, for an unlikely 4 legged companion, and of course for a man. Do yourself a favor and take a chance on this one, you will be blown away.
