Publisher's Summary

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. 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.

Great Book

The whole story is well written, shrouded in elegant suspence with just a touch of romance. I enjoyed Lexi's victories and shared in her sorrows. Though, be prepared, once Branded sucks you in, you never want to leave the world of the Hole. You will be engrossed even to the bittersweet end.
You have been warned...

The Best Ending! I want more!

The first half of this book was really dark and some creepy moments too. Luckily I was already invested in the characters and wanting to see where this bizarre story was headed and I'm so happy I did! The last few chapters were crazy...and the ending was really well done. I'm highly impressed with this book and I can't wait for another!

This was a good read with a nice twist

I enjoyed this story, although it was predictable there wee a few twists that kept it in engaging. I will definitely read the next book.

Awesome

Not my normal type of book I would read. Was recommended to me by a friend. I loved it and would recommend it. I sat reading this book with screams of No's and cry's of Yes. I fell in love with Cole, Lexi, Bruno, Alyssa, Sutton and of course Zeus.
