Review: Branded (Fall of Angels) by Keary Taylor

Branded: Fall of Angels by Keary Taylor

Amazon product description:
Night after night, Jessica stands trial before a council of vindictive angels for deeds she didn't commit. Condemnation brings a branding as they dementedly laugh and point but exaltation starts a war over her soul.

These are Jessica's nightmares.

Alex is everything Jessica could ever want and she'll do anything to be with him. Even tell him the truth about angels, why she never sleeps, and the scar on the back of her neck.

This is what she will fight for.

But the nightmares rule Jessica's life and she must find a way to stop the events that are pulling her toward her own judgment or become the object of her greatest fear. And lose Alex forever.

My thoughts:  
Why did I choose it:  I hate to admit it, but I tend to be a cover shopper. I know, I know... don't judge a book and all, but alas a good cover draws me to read the jacket and the jacket makes the sale!
What did I like about it:  
I loved the characters!  Alex is the man we all dream exists, but find only in stories.  Jessica is a fantastic character.  Sal is wonderful and Cole is something else all together.  Emily was a surprise, but I liked her too.
The story line is fantastic.  The idea of someone standing trial for others in a council of angels is one I have never read before.  I enjoyed the interactions between the characters and how the story developed and unfolded for us.  It moved enough to keep me up late turning pages!
My least favorite part?  Because I am forever looking for the ending that I decided HAD to happen when I start a book, I wasn't thrilled with the ending.  It was a good way to end the story, but I had hoped.... anyway - no spoiler.
It's worth a read - check it out!
