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.
My take...
As if Pagan would get a break in life to enjoy the remainder of her senior year with her gorgeous, rocker boyfriend, Dank...aka Death. Nope, in fact she learns that her ex-boyfriend, Leif had no soul and no one knows what happened to him as he goes missing. And why is everyone forgetting about him already? But most importantly, Pagan is having these weird dreams that turn out to be memories of her childhood. Why is this happening? What does it all mean?
First let me pause a moment to take it all in. I just finished Predestined this very second and already I need more. More Dank, more goodness, and more Dank. Oh right I already said that huh? Can you blame me though? Dank Walker is schmexy epicness! When I first started Predestined I kept thinking ‘gah Pagan, what a lucky gal you are’. Our boy Dank is fiercely protective of her and nothing and no one will come between them. Oh Death is setting standards no human boy could possibly live up to.
I knew going in to book 2 that I would always have a soft spot for Existence, since it’s the first book that introduced us to Dank and Pagan. But Predestined held it’s own. Yep, blown away…loved every written word. The storyline was very well developed and Glines pulled it all together nicely to make one hell of a story.
Abbi you keep turning them out and getting me hooked. You know your kinda like a drug dealer? *Ponders this a moment* How I love your books Mrs. Glines and could never get enough of them. Keep my ‘crack’ coming!
