"Branded was a riveting and exciting dystopian read that will have you at the edge of your seat." ---Ben Alderson, Booktuber at BenjaminofTomes
About the Author
Melissa Kalicicki received her bachelor's degree from Millersville University in 2003. Aside from reading and writing, her interests include running and mixed martial arts. Abi Ketner is a registered nurse with a passion for novels, singing, and running. Best friends since college, they turned a month book review into a joint writing adventure. They both live in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
I wanted to like this book, but the character development was lacking and the story line obvious. The main character was not my idea of a heroine. She was vapid and insipid. The love interest, Cole, was even worse. They didn't develop him at all. I knew from the beginning who the mysterious commander would turn out to be. I'm sure writing a book is hard. Unfortunately, finishing reading this book was also difficult.
It has been a while since a dystopian novel has captured my attention. Branded was a recommendation from a friend, and I am glad I listened to her. The world-building in this story was excellent. I was equally appalled and intrigued by Lexi's situation. The angst level and the forbidden aspect of her romance with Cole had me flipping the pages as fast as I could.
It started out great and then kept spiraling downhill getting worse and worse with character cliches, and the sudden uprising of a heroine that doesn't make any sense. The clinging to Cole and how much she loooves him made me sick and then Cole turned into a cliche love sick character change mid book.
It was absolutely amazing. Lots of action and drama. My favorite. They should make a movie even though movies are never as good as the book. I suggest this book to anyone over the age of 13. It does have some pretty graphic things in it, but it is definitely worth a try. I believe it is my favorite book so far this year and I read a lot of books. At least try it! You will get hooked, there is never a dull moment in the entire book.
The authors really spun a great story & one I haven't had the pleasure of reading. Imagine being accused & then thrown in the Hole with no trial, that's it! What a scary place it is!! Find out about it and read this book!
