Review: Branded by Keary Taylor

(summary from goodreads)

Jessica’s had the nightmares for as long as she can remember. Nightmares of being judged for people who have died, of being branded by the angels. Her friends and family think she’s a crazy because of it all. Yet she carries the mark of the condemned, seared into the back of her neck, and hides it and herself away from the world. 

But when two men she can’t ignore enter her life everything changes, including the nightmares. The two of them couldn’t be more different. She will do anything to be with one of them. Even tell him the truth about angels, why she never sleeps, and the scar on the back of her neck. But one of the two has set events into motion what will puller her toward her own judgment and turn her into the object of her greatest fear.

Review: I always love reading about angels, but something was different about Branded. The angels weren't fallen and they definitely weren't the stereotypical nice angels. 

It was very refreshing to read a book that is similar in genre but different in execution to other enjoyable books. It was very nice to read another side angels. 

Jessica and Alex were both interesting characters and easy to get to know. I thought their relationship was a little fast and didn't have the types of problems a real relationship would have. For instance, Alex accepts all of Jessica's issues and problems surrounding her dreams without even questioning it. 

Overall though, this was a very refreshing view on angels and left me satisfied but also waiting for more.

I love your honest review, Kathryn! I really enjoyed Branded, though I think parts were too convenient, as well. I'm definitely looking forward to Forsaken :)
