Summary (from Goodreads)

What happens when you are stalked by Death? You fall in
love with him of course. Pagan Moore doesn’t cheat Death, instead, she 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, they left her alone. Until she steps out of her car on the first day of school and sees 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 he does something none of the others have ever done; he speaks. Pagan is fascinated by the soul. What Pagan 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. He is Death and he is about to break all the rules.

 I just changed my Abbi Glines badge from “fan girl” to “super fan girl”. Seriously, everything she writes becomes sparkly and amazing. At least for me. I loved Existence so much! Dank makes me all swoony and weak in the knees. One of my favorite books of 2011.

I’m sure my review will not do the book justice, but I will try anyways. The characters make this book for me. Abbi Glines characters are all so wonderful. They are complex and likable, addicting and so believable. That is key for me, you get sucked right into their world and you feel like you belong in it. Like you are right there in the middle of the story. It’s amazing. That’s why I have such a hard time putting down her books. I get so absorbed in them that the next thing I know its 3 am and I’m still awake reading. 

I LOVED Dank. He is so mysterious but right away you can tell that he is attached to Pagan. My only complaint about the whole book is that I wanted to see more of Dank. Im really hoping that in the next book we get to see a little bit of his POV. PLEASSEEE!? I’m a sucker for guy’s point of view. 

Pagan was a pretty cool main character too. She was logical and nice, but she was still a teenager. When love came into the equation she went a little crazy, like we all tend to do. I loved that you could feel Dank’s emotions where Pagan was concerned. He had a crazy sense of desperation about him sometimes. I need to know more about him. I just need to. 

This book had me on a crazy roller coaster ride. It was mysterious and just when I thought I knew what was going to happen next, to threw me for a loop. I’m particularly talking about the last 15% of the book. So much happens near the end that you will need to hold onto your seat. But it is awesome and you will love every second of it. The last page had me super duper happy and shocked at the same time. My mind is already cranking at top speed trying to figure out what is going to happen next. I can’t wait to find out. If you have not read any Abbi Glines books, you are really missing out! This is one book that I would pick up ASAP! 

5/5 Gavels.
