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.

My Review:

I received a free copy of the book from the author for my honest opinion.

Lexie Hamilton was abused by her step-father and then was arrested for a crime that she never commented. Lexie lives in a world where if you are accused of a sin then you are put in the hole to live out your life. You are not given the opportunity to prove if you are innocent or guilty. You do not pass go and you definitely do not collect $200.

Lexie after being accused of lust she is then put in the hole to live out the rest of her life. She is assigned a guard a gurard to watch over her as well as a job. Lexie is sent to work in the hospital. The sinners and the guards are not allowed to have any kind of relationship much less fall in love with one another. But Lexie and her guard Cole fall for each other very hard and very fast. Cole and Lexie can never let anyone know about how they feel about one another outside the walls of their home or they will have to pay the consequences.

Living life in the hole is like living in hell. Most of the sinners probably wish they were dead and lived in hell. It is possible that hell just may be a little bit better than living in the hole. Life outside the hole is not much better than life inside the hole. You never want to get caught commenting any kind of crime inside the hole because the punishments for the crimes are so serve. Reading Branded is not recommended for the faint of heart.

If you like reading books with a lot of cruelty and can handle people being severely punished then I do highly recommend that you give Branded a try, it is an epic read and not one to keep putting off if you have ever thought of reading it. It is so superbly written that it is out of this world and it will throw you for a loop. Once it is picked up you will not want to put it down under no circumstances unless the house is on fire of course. There were times when I so felt like crying for Lexi that I didn't know what to do. The writers drag you into Lexie and Cole's world to the point that you forget that your own world even exist. There is no way I can say how much I really enjoyed reading Branded and cannot wait for the next book in the series.
