Product Description

Product Description

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 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!
BRANDED - Book One
AFTERLIFE - Novelette Companion to Vindicated

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Indie fantasy novel 19 April 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
If I could give this 4.5 stars, I think that would be a more appropriate rating. I really enjoyed reading this book, but there were a few little niggles that prevent me from giving it a full 5 stars. One of the so-called 'twists' in the plot was honestly, blindingly obvious and I saw it coming well before I was half way through the novel, but apart from that the story line was good. There was also one occasion where a passage was almost repeated - a part of the storyline that had been mentioned a couple of pages before (I won't give too much away, but about a feather), was re-written within another passage, which shows slightly lacking editing skills. However, despite these imperfections, I was still able to really enjoy the novel, and will still read the second in the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine if your expectations are low 10 Mar 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This was the first book I downloaded on Kindle and I chose it because it was cheap. Sorry, but that is exactly how it felt too! To be fair the story was interesting but it was so badly written. I felt like I was reading something written by a school kid, which is fine if that's what you are expecting, but it's not the kind of writing style I would normally choose to read. The grammar was poor, the flow was amateurish and there were spelling mistakes (who did the proofreading?) as well as inappropriate use of words.

I hope that the author's style improves as she matures. I was convinced I was reading a novel that had been published by the author herself as I could not believe that a publishing house would put something this weak into print.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enthralling 31 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am an avid reader of supernatural fiction and found this book enthralling to the point I read it in only 2 days. It combines an intriguing twist on Angel lore with a heart warming romance that will keep you utterly engaged right to the last page. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys good paranormal romance novels.

A good book; commendable characters, intriguing plot and fascinating opinions.

Some mistakes but easy to overlook in the grand scheme of things.

Where do I even begin?

Well for starters for a free kindle book this novel is amazing quality and I would have bought it for so much more and not thought twice about it. The plot could easily have been identical to other angel stories, but bad angels? Totally new for me!

I did find the plot and romance obvious but it seems I’m alone with this and other people were kept guessing to the very end. I loved reading it anyway, and the principle of being sucked into angel trials and being physically branded while you slept enthralled me. It’s not every day that you read this.

The relationship between Jessica and Alex was so sweet and endearing *heartfelt sigh*, and it is a great show of character when Alex doesn’t immediately reject Jessica after her rather unbelievable revelations, so for this he got extra points from me. They are both very strong and independent characters and I know it sounds cliché but they fit so well together and bring out each other’s best qualities.

Now, even though I am fully on team Alex, I do love Cole, who is basically competing for Jessica. He is mysterious and it’s hard to determine his real motives but this made it more interesting and I loved reading his scenes. They were written beautifully and Keary Taylor did an amazing job on every single scene, and I look forward to reading more of her books; starting with book 2 from the Fall of Angels Series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh dear... 10 Jan 2013
By cait
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Based on the reviews, you could be forgiven for thinking this would be good. It's not. The idea is good but the writing is poor, lacks flow and plot devices are often contrived and horribly obvious. Like another reviewer, I was shocked that this made it into print and was not just published electronically. Probably ought not to have been so surprised though with publishers' current passion to make money out of "soft horror".

If you're looking for a truly great angel story, pass this up and buy Laini Taylor's "Daughter of Smoke and Bone" and the follow-up "Days of Blood and Starlight".
