Overview

Branded by Keary Taylor

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 pull her toward her own judgment and turn her into the object of her greatest fear.

Featured in THE WALL STREET JOURNAL as a "Self-Published Big Seller." The entire series is now available.

I have read very few stories that I would call captivating. Keary Taylor's Branded is one that I have no hesitation of laying the term on. When I first stumbled across the book, the synopsis intrigued me. Angels - but not like every one pictures them. I decided to take a peak. From page one, I was hooked. I couldn't stop reading. I read almost three quarters of the book before my aching, bloodshot eyes demanded I stop. You won't find another plot like this one. Whether you've read every angel story out there or none at all, this one should enthrall you. As I read, I felt for Jessica (our main character). Her plight, her loneliness, the insane torture she goes through every time she sleeps. And then things got more complicated with the addition of a few new characters. While this book does have a few typos, I think Keary Taylor's powerful writing, knack of description and wonderful characters will allow you to look past those minor errors. I know I skipped right over them! Personally, I can't wait to pick up the next book in the series.

I been looking for a book I really could not forget. After 50 shades I didn't think I would find it because in the last month I read 29 books and this one makes 30... It was totally worth the wait to finally find something better than all the other books. Thank you for this truly amazing story can't wait to read the rest AFTER I reread this one ;-) super excited.

At first I was intrigued by this book and uniqueness of both the premise and the voice of the main character. But as the book went along, I became less enthused. The book is rather depressing, making it no fun to read if you are looking for escape. Additionally, the relationship between the two main characters just makes no sense. You have no idea why these two are together. It feel very forced. No a favorite of mine.

I didn't hate this book, but I'm glad it was free. The author shows promise, but the characters were rather flat and dull. I never really could figure out why she had two guys in love with her at first sight. It's very pre-teen. Im sure I would uave found this love sick thing more romantic at 16. Also, while I didn't hate the heroine, she was far too bland and kind of helpless. I just can't get behind somone who isn't willing to fight for herself.

This author can write but the story line flow is bad. Not good enough to buy the follow up books in the set.

This book sucks. The story is sooooooo slow. Characters are not well developed. I kept on waiting of the good part the others said, there was none. What a waste of time and money.

I loved the book. The twist with how people usually think angles are good but thent arent is reall cool. Im 11 and i wouldnt recomend it for anyone under the age of 11 because of some of the stuff. Like Sals ex-hubby and the fake suicide attemped. LOVE IT!

I loved this book! It's so good. Started a little slow, for me, but the pace picked up quickly. Could not put it down. Read all four (including Afterlife, the companion to Vindicated) in less than two days. The only down side is that there are nit more books!

Great story enjoy it very much It was different from what I usually read Didn’t expect to continue reading it when it comes to the of devils and angels fighting but it wasn’t like that I felt sorry for some one to have nightmares like this I wouldn’t be able to sleep either. But it ended well except he gave his life for her.

I didn’t really enjoy this story. The premise is good but the storyline moved so very slow. The development of the characters was extremely slow. I also hated the ending. I won’t be reading the other books.

Jessica, the poor girl, lives her life almost never sleeping and when she does its like she is torchered. To stand in for the souls who have died at the trials to see if you are to be damned or saved. And then there is Alex, the sweetest guy who lost his grandparents, and didnt expect to find the love of his life taking care of his new home. At one of the trials something is different and you're not sure what until you finally put together what has happened. I can honestly say that i cried at the end of this book. I absolutely love this book.

There were elements to the story that were interesting. The trials, the counting, the desire to stay awake to avoid the dreams. The first chapter or so were great, and then the YA love triangle began forming. As a reader I was bored pretty much from the minute Alex walked through the door. It reached a point where I was rooting for Cole because I was so desperate for something interesting to happen. That there are two more books after this is shocking, and I have zero interest in reading them. In general this book was fine. I am relieved I didn't pay money for it, but don't hate myself for reading it.

I'm not much of a fantasy fan. Sort of stumbled onto this book. I didn't think the characters were developed very fully and the entire concept was too unsettling for me to enjoy fully. But I also couldn't put the book down...read it in just a few hours!

Great change on the whole angel thing. Kept me curious and interested, and I didn't expect the ending to be as it was...I will have to read the next book.
