    One thought on “Branded”

    1. First off, let me say I finished devoured the first two books in two days time I was wary to start it I mean bad angels didn t sound awesome to me but I gave it a shot and was not dissapointed The characters were not annoying as I find they are in alot of fantasy novels They were relateable and caring towards one another Their relationship was sweet and believable, no patronizing I m not turned on by female roles who are whiny and selfish And the male roles are usually so arrogant but they re ho [...]

    2. Well, I had to give my own work 5 stars right Keep an eye out for Forsaken, the second book in the Fall of Angels, coming this fall

    3. The Good Branded has a very interesting premise angels are not the glorified beings they re hyped as Instead, they are the cause for the main character s torment Neat.The story line is decent as well It kept me guessing until the end It s not all that predictable except for the romance bit and the author keeps some semblance of suspense up until the very end.The Bad For one thing, the ending seems very rushed Taylor manages to cram the entire resolution of the story into pretty much a paragraph [...]

    4. First of all negative stars, a shelf created especially for this book, because it left such a bad taste in my mouth that the only stars I can possibly give are those below zero As you might have guessed, Branded made me angry, and therefore it will be impossible to review this without spoilers However, many of the plot is so obvious and unoriginal that the spoilers aren t that substantial Also, some explicit language will be used, because sometimes there is just no better way to express your opi [...]

    5. Jessica Bailey is tormented Every time she falls asleep, her nightmare begins The first chapter got me into reading the book It was different It started where most books end on judgment However, after a couple of chapters, the story goes downhill FAST The author tends to overelaborate on everything, leaving nothing to the imagination There are a few pages full of just descriptions of surroundings, and feelings I gets boring fast when every detail is explained and explored The book feels like a v [...]

    6. WARNING SPOILERS SLIGHT Initially I was really into this book I loved Jessica s character The premise intrigued me The writing was decent Then Alex happened.I did not like Alex, at all He was too chipper Too eager At least, he is in the beginning He and Jessica fall in together way too quickly for my piece of mind I mean, Jessica hasn t known him a day and already she s okay with him walking in on her in the shower Not only that, but he thinks its okay to invade her privacy this way Ummm, hello [...]

    7. review by Megsly Warning possible spoilers ahead Branded follows 20 year old Jessica Bailey, who is a teenage run away who never sleeps She can usually reach almost 100 hours with no sleep before her body starts caving in on her The reason she doesn t sleep is because she has night terrors, extreme night terrors In her dreams, she finds herself locked in a room, awaiting trial An angel she calls Adam, with gray eyes which is apparently indicative of whether or not they are fallen or not Gray mea [...]

    8. The story and the characters definitely kept me reading I purchased this book on a whim I love to read the work of local authors and jumped at the chance to help support a local up and coming when I saw this book at a bookstore near my office, in Seattle I read every day on my way to and from work on public transit, and sometimes, while reading this book, I d almost forget where I was Once, I almost missed my stop The story is compelling, the scenery and set building very full without dragging d [...]

    9. So I did enjoy the story in this book, but I am not sure I liked how it was executed The idea was fantastic and very original I am not sure if this was the writer s first book, but the flow of the book was off There was so much build up and not enough character development to fill the pages While I liked there characters in the book okayI didn t feel like I knew enough about them to love them There was so much room to get you emotionally involved with the characters but since you didn t really k [...]

    10. Piccola premessa questo e book era gratuito su preso in coppia con Cornerstone, idea vincente , e credo sia un autopubblicato Lo specifico perch ho visto che, adesso, c anche una versione a pagamento, con una copertina diversa e una casa editrice la possibilit che sia stato scoperto e tirato a lucido in vista di una vera pubblicazione esiste Per non ho nessuna intenzione di andare perdere tempo cercando informazioni ne ho gi sprecato abbastanza leggendolo difficile parlare di Branded, per un se [...]

    11. Branded by Keary Taylor2 stars DNF page 48I have nothing against Branded or the story within, but this book was boring and irrelevant There was a lot of random exposition and transitions that made the story feel stilted and caused a hindrance in my reading experience Due to Taylor s writing choices, I was completely put off by the concept and uninterested in continuing with my reading experience I m currently trying to continue clean out my Kindle and the premise for this is promising, but the e [...]

    12. Jessica has been tortured with horrifying nightmares ever since she was a little girl Nightmares of being judged and standing trial for those that have died, in front of a council of Angels 5 Condemned angels with black eyes, and 5 exalted angels with blue eyes.Up meant exaltation and never ending bliss, while Down meant a branding and never ending torment On the back of her neck she wears the branding of the condemned reminding her that not all nightmares stay hidden in the shadows of a dream.T [...]

    13. I d like to give this than 2 stars, but I can t see it when I compare this book to some of the other angel books I ve read Basic premise is that Jessica has been haunted by terrible nightmares since a young age Her nightmares are really than that, however In them she stands trial before a panel of angels on the behalf of others, and upon their decision, she suffers the pain of these souls ascension or worse, damnation Oh, and she wakes up with proof of it Enter Alex, the perfect guy, and Cole, [...]

    14. I have never read a book that has bored me so much I don t know why I did even finish it Maybe because I was still hoping that the appearance of the villain sorry for insulting real villains here would give this story the kick that would make me understand why everyone has rated this book so wellThe only really interesting thing is what the heroine is experiencing in her dreams The twist is a new view on things, and that I did like But that s about it, unfortunately.What made this book suck sorr [...]

    15. I m not sure what to think of this book The writing was slow paced and the ending was too fast Somehow, I had no feelings or sympathy for Jessica The romance was way too rushed and totally umrealistic.Alex was perfect, too perfect He s loving, caring, rich amd a fantastic cook I mean please He knows Jessica for about four days and gives her his dead grandmother s diamond bracelet There was absulutly no flaw about Alex He was so unreal, I actually thought I was reading a fairy tell about Prince C [...]

    16. The plot started off great but plummeted so much so it became tedious to finish the story It dragged on and on I hated the heroine after chapter 18 The ending was basically a lot of work for nothing All that training for what I m glad it s over I will add how I believe that if I had read this book three years ago, I probably would have loved it I recommend this book for people who are fine with reading stories based around an annoying heroine I really liked her at first but as the story progress [...]

    17. See of my reviews at We Live and Breathe BooksRating 3.5 starsThere was a time a few months ago when I was binge one clicking free eBooks on Branded was one of those In my dilemma to choose a new book, I was scrolling through the ridiculous amount of eBooks I own and I chose Branded, to be completely honest, because it had a really pretty cover I mean, the cover is just stunning I see a Cover Cosmetics in your future, Branded Anyway, I basically devoured this book on Christmas Eve, and while it [...]

    20. I started Branded with high hopes it seemed like an interesting premise and I was happy at the prospect of reading some YA with slightly older characters I get a few pages in and already it is setting itself up for a stereotype, complete with pretty but kind of weird female character plus wealthy male model with not much personality and a healthy dose of insta love I was ready to forgive Keary Taylor for this because there was still this mystery over Jessica s dreams and I was intrigued.And then [...]

    21. This book is based on a really interesting idea, and after the first chapter or two I was set to like it a lot Alas, it foundered The main character is a tortured individual whose life is steeped in the supernatural not exactly the kind of character you would imagine would be interested in shopping at the mall or painting her toenails The idea gave the author a great opportunity to explore some deep, philosophical questions about religion and humanity, but she shied away from it There was entire [...]

    22. It was nice to slow down after reading so much fast fantasy I ve not read many angel themed books, but if they re as good as this I may get into them a fair bit The idea of the trials up into Heaven or down into Hell and branding with the X before the wings burst forth was pretty awesome There were one too many dreams at one point, making it a little repetitive And I was a tad confused why Alex fell so madly in love with her Cole made sense, a little, but not Alex He was sweet though, as was the [...]

    23. Bullet Review DNF at 18% and Chapter 6.This one is truly a shame that I must quit it because it REALLY has a fascinating premise Jessica goes to sleep, but in her dreams , she s a soul on judgment in front of a tribunal of 5 evil angels and 5 good angels.Fascinating, right Well, it would be without all the boring day to day activities and the mooning over Alex s FANTASTIC ABS Gorrammit, I get it, women are fully entitled to be sexually attracted to a guy purely based on his physical qualities Bu [...]

    24. Alex is just perfect, and so very selfless He is sunshine and all things that make one happy I think it was beautiful when Jessica said that she would never be worthy of him but she s going to try.I freaking love this book The concept was so different, and Jessica and Alex went through too much There s just so much love in this book, especially from dear Alex, you can t help but adore the book and the characters Here are some things I learned from Branded 1 You must look past a person s messed u [...]

    25. Rating 4.25 starsSuch a fantastic and unique plot Jessica herself was so strong, and I didn t expect half of what happened My only criticism was that it seemed just a bit too long.I must admit that I m not planning on continuing the series, as I just feel like it s better as a stand alone.I definitely recommend this fallen angels novel
