Branded (A Sinners Series #1) by Abi Ketner & Missy Kalicicki ~ Cover Re-reveal & Giveaway!

Branded, the first book in the Sinners Series, has a new cover! You can find the link to my review below as well as the book info, purchase links, author info, and a giveaway to win a $10 Amazon GC. 

I liked the first cover, but I think this one stands out even more. The cover model is looking towards you whereas with the first cover you couldn't see the cover model's face at all. Also the brand around her neck, blue for lust, stands out much more starkly against her skin and gives a better picture into how horrific it is when Lexi, the main character, is branded - one of the scenes that will always stand out the most in my mind.

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.

    1. I did like the first cover, but this one does express the story more than the first one. :) I'm checking out your review, too, Chene! :D

  2. *ha* I like this cover better too, Jennifer. Although I did like the original because it showcased the starkness of The Hole, I like the brand in this one. And her eyes...her strange turquoise eyes... :)

    1. The first one was good, and I agree it showed the starkness. The brand in this one shows how atrocious it is that this was done to a human being. That scene! Gah! Her eyes are pretty and mysterious and strange, too. :)

  3. I remember your review of this emotional read. I love the new cover!

    1. You have a great memory, lol! I'm glad you love it, too! :D
