Blurb: 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.

Review: This is going to be a short review and maybe a little vague because I don't want to give anything away! But I can you that I was looking forward to reading Existence due to the high ratings and I can tell you that I wasn't disappointed! I love what happened between the soul that talked to Pagan and what happened to him, like, how he made more of an appearence with everyone else. I was just about 30% into Existence and I was hooked and I wanted to stay up all night to finish it but I went to bed a little later than usual and woke up early to finish it off, and I can say that it was a great way start the day!

I can't really say anything more about this book that won't give too much away. It was a really good book although I think that Pagan was quite dramatic like at the beginning with Leif and BAM (you probably know what I mean if you've read it). To run off at something small like that and cry over about it, yet you are willing to die for someone you love ... it doesn't make sense, but hey!

I love Dank, his name seemed weird to me at first but I got used to it and I think that only he could ever pull it off and it makes him even more irresitable!
I absolutely LOVE the cover. It's his eyes! Mmmmm. And it's the couple on the Obsidian cover aswell.
