Title: Predestined

Series: Existence #2

Author: Abbi Glines

Genres: Paranormal Romance (Ghosts)

Release Date: 10 November 2014


You would think after helping save her boyfriend from an eternity in Hell that things would go back to normal. Well, as normal as life can be when you can see souls and your boyfriend is Death. But for Pagan Moore, things are just getting weirder.

The high school quarterback and reigning heartthrob, Leif Montgomery, is missing. While the town is in a frenzy of worry, Pagan is a nervous wreck for other reasons. Apparently good ‘ol Leif isn’t your average teenage boy. He isn’t even human. According to Death, Leif doesn’t have a soul. The quarterback may have skipped town but he’s still showing up in Pagan’s dreams… uninvited.

Dank has known from the beginning Leif wasn’t human. But he hadn’t worried about a simple soulless creature. Now, he realizes he made a grave mistake. Pagan’s soul has been marked since birth as a restitution, to a spirit so dark not even Death walks near it. Dank knows saving Pagan’s soul won’t be easy but Pagan is his. And he’s already proven he’ll defy Heaven to keep her. If Hell wants a piece of him too, then bring it on.

“Predestined” is the second book in the “Existence” series. I buddy read this book with Jamsu and realized that we haven’t read anything together that isn’t paranormal!

In this book we finally get to find out what’s so special about Pagan and why she’s able to see souls. I didn’t really saw that storyline coming. I was afraid that the new addition wouldn’t work for me, but it ended up good after all! Dank is his usual self, however he shows the possessiveness he feels towards Pagan. After all he’s used to not having any feelings, and what Pagan makes him feel is strong and new to him.

I had issues with most of the secondary characters. Leif was constantly everywhere Pagan was and most times he came out as stalkerish. I really liked him in the first book, but my thoughts changed after this one. I dislike Pagan’s mom as well. Her decisions and actions were what brought Pagan to this predicament. She acted almost selfish at times; in ways I can’t fathom a mom acting.

Since I was listening to the audiobook, I had a hard time with the narration. For some reason, the narrator was using an annoying and obnoxious voice for some of the secondary characters. The worst one was Miranda’s; I had a hard time listening when she was speaking.

All in all, it was a good book. The ending left me content and I think that the story could have ended there. I’m really curious to see what the author has in store for the characters in the next book. According to the synopsis there’s to be more drama and difficulties for Dank and Pagan!
