Existence (Existence Trilogy, #1)
4 of 5 stars false
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.


Pagan has seen spirits her whole life, and has learned the benefits of just leaving.She has gotten so used to their presence, floating in and out of her life that when one starts following her and then starts speaking to her, she is needless to say , a little freaked out.
Then she gets into a car accident and things start to get scary, she survives but she doesn't know how. All she knows is another soul starts following her around talking , looking at her strangely, a boy at school who would never look at her before is acting very, very interested and the soul that she has been seeing and talking to her has shown up at school as a very real person. Pagan thinks she is going crazy, however she is very drawn to Dank and now he seems to be protecting her from things she doesn't understand and acting very possessive of her. What does he want and why won't he tell her who or what he is?
I am a fan of paranormal romance, but I have never read a book where Death was the love interest, so I was very intrigued when I read the blurb for this story.
Pagan, was an interesting character and her ability to see spirits gave her that extra little something,something, instead of just being the plain human girl that a supernatural creature becomes enamoured by. Dank, well I just loved him and of course wanted him to get what he wanted, which was Pagan. There were quite a few unexpected things happening in this book, Leif, Pagans boyfriend, especially was an odd ball that I was deeply curious about. Something just about his character and then the last line of the book gave me a sort of answer. It also left me thinking, very well played Miss Glines, you left me satisfied because, no there isn't a cliffhanger, per say. But there is a very big, fat, tease at the end of this book that has made reading the next book an absolute necessity.
It was great to see an immortal being in trouble and how even the powerful have to answer for breaking the rules of the universe.
This was a great Young Adult story, with a original paranormal plot. I am very interested into seeing where this series will go and I will definitely be reading the next one.
