Summary from Goodreads:

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.

This book had me thinking one way and then sending me down another way. I was thinking that I knew how this book would go, but it kept making turns I did not think this story line would do.

The pacing was a fast movement that kept me on my toes. I was on the edge of my seat wanting to know more about what will happen next in the story line. I could not change the pages fast enough.

The characters jumped off the page. I loved that the characters unfolded along with the story line. I fell in love with the characters slowly that I did not realize they were in my heart. The characters showed themselves and grew with the story line to advance in their own way to help the reader love them more.
