Review: Existence by Abbi Glines

Existence (Existence Trilogy, #1)Existence by Abbi Glines

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

What happens when you're stalked by Death? You fall in love with him, of course.

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.

I hate writing reviews for books that didn't impress me and I can't really tell you why. It had the makings of an awesome book, but for some reason I never quite took the bait. Also, how am I suppose to swoon over some guy named Dank...DANK!!! Yikes! I think one of my biggest issues is that the author did such a great job developing the relationship between Leif and Pagan; it seems she forgot about Dank. Their relationship was disappointing. I will give props for a few sexually charged scenes and a fast paced plot, but overall I was a little disappointed. I never quite understood the purpose of the whole rock-star thing either; it was a bit out of place. The best things about this book were the kick-ass cover and the amazing cliff-hanger ending. So even though I wasn't in love with the book, it was enough to make me want to read the sequel. So who knows...
