Review: Existence by Abbi Glines
Pagan Moore doesn't cheat Death, but instead, falls in love with him.
Seventeen year old Pagan Moore has seen souls her entire life. Once she realized the strangers she often saw walking through walls were not visible to anyone else, she started ignoring them. If she didn't let them know she could see them, then they left her alone. Until she stepped out of her car the first day of school and saw an incredibly sexy guy lounging on a picnic table, watching her with an amused smirk on his face. Problem is, she knows he's dead.
Not only does he not go away when she ignores him, but he does something none of the others have ever done. He speaks. Pagan is fascinated by the soul. What she doesn't realize is that her appointed time to die is drawing near and the wickedly beautiful soul she is falling in love with is not a soul at all.
He is Death and he's about to break all the rules. (Synopsis taken from Amazon.com)
My Review: A+
Why oh why had I not read this sooner? Abbi Glines is proving with each book what a wonderful storyteller she is. I read this book in one sitting and actually had to order Chinese food for supper because I couldn't put my kindle down. It was just so good!
Pagan isn't your normal 17 year old high school student, she sees dead people! I loved this character, she was likeable and fun. She had depth and was interesting which can be rare in YA books. She also hasn't been interested in boy's so when the popular quarterback Lief takes an interest in her, she finds out that there is more to him than she realized, and boy is there!
Pagan has always been able to see souls that are wandering but when the unbelievably sexy blue-eyed dark haired Dank actually speaks to her, he catches her attention. She's so drawn to him and the romance that they have is hot and steamy!
This book was a roller coaster that I just didn't want to get off of. I read it in one sitting and just devoured it. Abbli Glines has created a cast of characters that are lovable and a storyline that I can't wait to find out what happens next.
If you have not read this book or any other of Abbi Glines books you're seriously missing out. She creates amazing and lovable characters and a rich story for them to be a part of. Abbi Glines you rock my world with your amazing books and I just cannot wait for the next one!
