Audiobook Review: Existence by Abbi Glines. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Existence by Abbi Glines

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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 and Dank – Where do authors get these names?

The following ratings are out of 5:

The heroine: Pagan – she sees ghosts though she doesn’t acknowledge them since they can’t talk to her. However, when she sees a handsome ghost outside her school and he talks to her, she doesn’t know what to think.

The Hero(es): Dank – he is Death, not a ghost. He isn’t surprised that she can see him but he is surprised that she sees other souls. He is fascinated by Pagan and inserts himself into her life. He breaks a rule for her.

The Story: Dank sometimes appears as a ghost to Pagan and sometimes appears as a real person, a rock star who starts attending her school. Pagan, thinking Dank is just a ghost, falls for and begins dating a guy named Leif, the football star at her school.

The story is original and interesting though I really disliked the narration. The narrator Ashley Litz has a fine voice for the heroine, Pagan and even when she does the guys voices it is pleasant, but her voices for other girls actually hurt my ears. They were high and extremely screeching, absolutely grating.

Though now that I am invested in the story, I plan to listen to the next book. I am just hoping there aren’t as many supporting characters that are girls.
