Review: Existence By Abbi Glines

Author: Abbi Glines
Mature YA Paranormal Romance
4 out 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.

My Review
Wow. What an exciting read. Totally not what I expected. This book is like your worst addiction because you can't stop reading. Abbi has done a fantastic job of keeping the reader engaged in her story. Not having read any synopsis to this book, I began with a clean slate. I was impressed with her ability to keep me intrigued even though the whole fallen angels, heaven and hell is not that appealing to me as a reader. This trilogy has me hooked. Abbi has the ability to write with passion and emotion that transfers to the reader. Many a times I was looking for a Kleenex just in case because it was getting emotional. Keeping up with the trend lately in YA books with the whole love triangle, you cannot help but love both male characters. They each provide something that the main character needs, whether it be support, friendship, love or companionship. Filled with twists and turns in every chapter, this story is one not to miss.
