Existence

What happens when you fall in love with Death? Bad things. Pagan Moore has always been the responsible girl, the predictable girl and the normal girl. She even starts dating the High School football jock like a normal teenager. Until, that is, she falls in love with a guy named Dank, who just happens to be the living incarnation of Death. It doesn't help that she has been seeing ghosts her whole life - now she thinks she's really going crazy. It will be up to Pagan to decide if it is worth risking everything - even her own death - to be with the person who would ferry her soul to the other side.

I read Existence yesterday on my glorious Kindle. (Don't you just love the single-click book download?) While the idea was fantastic, I couldn't help but feel that the book spent too much time on the relationship between Pagan and her boyfriend, Leif, when I wanted (and so did Pagan) to see more of Dank. But I guess that's what a sequel is for.  The only other real qualm I had was the names of the main characters: Pagan and Dank. Maybe it's just me.
What do you think? Have you read Existence?

  1. I'm glad you reviewed this. It keeps coming up on my goodreads suggestions and that cover is intriguing to say the least. It's not weird that you find those names a little "different." As soon as I read your post I was like "Dank" interesting... Great Post!
