Existence Review

Author: Abbi Glines
Release Date:   December 13th 2011
Format :
Genre:  Paranormal Romance, Fantasy, Young Adult

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 Thoughts on the Book

I’ve heard about this book for a while now since December though I’ve only bought it recently. I got to say it wasn’t what I expected at all, yes I knew it was going to be about death but nothing like this. I read Dank’s point of view of when they first met and he is death. This story completely through me off guard by the how sad it was and THE DAMN CLIFFHANGER!
The main girl’s name is Pegan, that’s the first time I’ve ever heard that name being used in a book, that and dank. Pegan only met Dank for a short while but fell in love with him so damn fast it was so surprising. It was annoying how much she loved him in a short time and when he left she was so damn depressing I just got so annoyed.  She wouldn’t hang with he friends or her “boyfriend”. No her so said boyfriend she was using him, ultimately using him because she couldn’t be with Dank. She was even sent to a metal hospital for how withdrawn she was acting. As for Dank . . .he’s hot he gots bright eyes and HE GROWLS! No really when he’s jealous he growls! That is so damn hot!! Not to mention he is both a “spirt” and a rockstar! (read the book to know what I mean). As for her friends and Leif her boyfriend, they are alright. Leif truly cares for Pegan but Pegan wants nothing to do with him. She doesn’t want to break up with him because he’s a comfort to her and he doesn’t realize this. He loves her unconditionally and it’s so cute! Not to mention the cliffhanger about him! Her friend Miranda and Wyatt are good friends who care about Pegan but they aren’t the center of the book so you don’t really care much about them.
Romance in this novel is in the middle, at first Pegan starts to fall for Leif. It’s like a normal story where a normal girl falls for the football player. Then after an accident she started to fall for Dank who kept playing his guitar for her every night singing to her. She starts to fall for him during this time but said yes to going out with Leif, reason for this I don’t know, only that she ends up using Leif. She has strong feelings for Dank and Dank has feelings for her. The chemistry between the two of them is so strong and so hot it leaves you drooling for more! (which it never gives) Not to mention when Dank said he couldn’t be with her, he gets jealous and starts to growl in her mind when ever Leif did stuff with her like kissing. It was so damn cute!!  I have a thing for growling males okay! Haha!
As for the plot it was great, about a girl who though out her life could see ghosts and that they never talked to her before until this one person “Dank” spoke to her for the first time. It was a great story a few twists though out the book which made it interesting. Though it was a bit annoying near the middle of the book. I know Dank can’t be with her but to have her go all depress and admitted to a hospital for a short time was so annoying I hated it. Then it got better near the ending and I was happy again. THEN IT ENDED ON A CLIFFHANGER AND NOW I’M GOING CRAZY!

Cover Design

What drew me in most about this book was the cover. The eyes on the boy is just to hot to ignore. It's really eye catching and lovely to look at that hot boy. It's lovely to look at and I love how he is just staring at you while he hugs the girl. As for the title it's pretty with the smoke around the words floating up and the Text in a bright shiny blue color and the author's name fit snuggly underneath, this hole piece is nice to look at!


Overall it’s a great read if your into the paranormal stuff like ghosts and death.  I also suggest to read it because of how hot Dank is and how he growls haha!!! No seriously read the book!
