really liked it

** spoiler alert ** 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 their slow burn romance. Sal felt a tiny bit like a spare part. She was just ... there. You could have carved her out and it would have made no difference to the story line, but she was a fun character. I admit I took long breaks between reading this book. I could put it down, but always after I delved into another, would I pick it up again needing to finish the story.

Keary has a wonderful gift with description, and I will be reading the second.

Penelope Fletcher This is good. It's slow, but good. It's nice to read something that moves to a calmer pace.

Naurarwen Totally agree after I finished reading Branded I actually emailed Keary to ask her when Forsaken would be out and she replied to me within 24 hours saying it would be on Kindle within the week. I've now read Forsaken aswell and can't wait for the next one.
