I'm pretty sure I say this every time I write a post about one of Abbi Glines books, but we LOVE HER! She is truly one of my favorite authors of the year. Ashley discovered Abbi around February of this year and since then we have read all of her books. We catch all of her releases and stay on top of her wonderful giveaways. She is just AWESOME! Okay, enough about our stalkerish tendencies, we need to get down to the book love, lol.
Existence is book 1 in the Existence Trilogy. It will grab you from the beginning and leave you practically begging for more. How is this for a kicker- Our heroine falls in love with Death! (WTH! How is that possible!!)
Pagan has seen souls (people that are left here after they die, they can't move on or chose to not move on because of unfinished business) her entire life. She used to acknowledge them, but once she realized no one else could see them she pretended that she couldn't either. As long as the souls don't know she can see them they leave her alone.
She arrives one her first day of school to see the hottest guy staring at her as she exits the car. The trouble is, she knows he is dead. She knows a soul when she see ones. She attempts to ignore him, but he talks to her. Not only does he know she can see him, but others can see him too. It's like he isn't dead?
"Yes, I speak. Were you expecting me to be mute?"
I leaned my hip against the desk. "Well, you're the first one who's ever spoken to me."
Pagan falls hard for him. What she doesn't know is it is her time to die. She has fallen in love with this beautiful, different soul that she met at school. She doesn't know he is Death.
Death has fallen in love with Pagan too. He doesn't want to lose her. He is about to break all of the rules.
Now! How is that for some kind of awesome! I mean really! Falling in love with Death! You have to read it. I know you want to know what happens. Is she able to cheat Death? Is Dank's (Death) love strong enough and his pull in the afterlife strong enough that he can do whatever he has to do to keep her?
