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.
Darkness. Death. Violence. Pain.
Now 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.


Review: I absolutely loved this book. Lots of true emotions, love, pain, fear.... I was a bit confused with the beginning of the book as things went along though it began to make more sense. Lots of horrible things take place in "the hole" for sinners. Lexi is branded without anything being proven against her. Everyone is labeled based on their sins. She is assigned Cole as a guard but lots of reasons and things that happen don't make sense. A relationship between a sinner and a guard is punishable by death which they have both seen first hand but something are hard to fight. I could not put this book down. Its fast passed, gritty, and raw but you see the humanity in people too. I wasn't ready for the book to be finished and I want more....

About Abi and Missy

  Abi and Missy met in the summer of 1999 at college orientation and have been best friends ever since. After college, they added jobs, husbands and kids to their lives, but they still found time for their friendship. Instead of hanging out on weekends, they went to dinner once a month and reviewed books. What started out as an enjoyable hobby has now become an incredible adventure.
