Branded (Fall of Angels Book 1)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
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.

I didn’t think it would actually be benefiting your health,” he said with a chuckle and handed me the small box that I knew would contain chocolate. Mercifully it didn’t have any chubby-cheeked cherubs on it. “If your blood-sugar was low, this will help,” he explained when I gave him a confused look.
slipped out the door. I heard him rummaging through some things in the family room and he came back in after just a minute. I was glad to see the hard expression was gone when he came back, replaced by that half smile that knew so well how to send my heart into a pathetic flutter. “If you need anything,” he said as he extended something to me. I rolled my eyes and laughed when I reached out and found it was a bell. “Just ring this and I’ll come running.” I couldn’t help but smile as I looked
fair that she should have to be so tortured in her sleep. I stretched my legs out in front of me as a huge yawn escaped. I couldn’t help it as I rubbed my eyes. “Why don’t you take a break for a minute,” Alex said as he rubbed a hand in circles on my back. “I can sit with Sal for a bit. Why don’t you go get something to drink? I saw a vending machine in the waiting room. I’m pretty sure they even had Dr. Pepper in it,” he said with that half smile. I let out a little chuckle. So apparently he
could already tell it was going to be a long day and it was only just after eight. “You’re welcome to come with me if you want,” he said, though I could tell he sensed what the answer to that was going to be. Against my rolling stomach, I tried to pin a smile on my face. “I think I’ll pass,” I said as I shook my head slightly. “’K,” he said as he wrapped his arms around me in a quick embrace. He pressed a quick kiss to my lips and started for the door. “I’ll be back as soon as I can.” I
finally nodded her head. “After class. I can’t promise I will give you any more answers though.” “I know,” I said, my voice obviously depressed. She tried to manage a half smile then broke her gaze as she walked back to the front of the room. “Alright, everyone get into a seated position.” I was certainly feeling the effects of next to no food and being sick as we got into the routine. I frequently had to stop and rest, feeling like I was spending half of the time in child’s pose. I had
