Review of Branded

17402117Book Review: Branded

Review By: Elizabeth Delana Rosa

Genre: YA Dystopian

Brief Synopsis: 

Available on Amazon for $2.99

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.

Review:

I really loved this book. Sometimes it’s hard to connect with a first person book.  I, myself, write first person and I know the risks and rewards. Abi and Missy have created a new and unique look at the future. Lexi is a relatable hero and is a character that reflects growth and bravery.  I really liked the building of relationships in this book and I also loved that though love was a portion of the story it wasn’t the whole thing . We had a full and distinct view of Lexi and her world.   That is rare in many books. I can’t wait to see what’s next!

Abi and Missy met in the summer of 1999 at college orientation and have been best friends ever since. After college, they added jobs, husbands and kids to their lives, but they still found time for their friendship. Instead of hanging out on weekends, they went to dinner once a month and reviewed books. What started out as an enjoyable hobby has now become an incredible adventure.
