Audiobook Review: Predestined (Existence, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Predestined by Abbi Glines

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

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. 


Love story gets complicated!

The heroine: Pagan – she was supposed to die, but Death spared her and it caused all kinds of complications.

The Hero(es): Dank – He is death and is in love with Pagan. However, he isn’t the only one.

The Story: Dank is back as the rockstar and student at Pagan’s school. However, her boyfriend Leif becomes a problem. Leif is the son of a voodoo god, Ged or something like that. Pagan was promised to him when they were children because Pagan had leukemia and was about to die and her mother made a deal with a voodoo priestess.

I liked the story but the triangle was pretty hard to like. In the last book I felt bad for Leif because Pagan kept dating him and using him for comfort even though she didn’t really have romantic feelings for him and had been yearning for Dank the whole time.

This book was even worse. I felt even more sorry for Leif even though he had no soul and was the son of an evil entity. Because Pagan had constant flashbacks to when she was young and Leif would show up and save her or bring her presents or just appear in her life at important times. It was easy to see he had always thought she was his and put a lot of effort into being in her life, then Dank comes in at the last minute and sweeps her off her feet.

Like the last book, I really couldn’t stand the narration. Again, the narrator Ashley Litz has an ok voice for the heroine, Pagan and the guys, but her voices for other girls (Miranda and G) actually hurt my ears. They were high and extremely screeching, absolutely grating. My migraine will prevent me from going further in this series.
