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.
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! I love it! There was a lot more that happened in this book (I’m trying to keep myself from revealing any spoilers! ). But trust me on it, a lot. For one thing, Pagan surely did more than just sitting around and mope over Dank. And another thing is, Ms. Abbi Glines provided a more solid back story to each of the characters, especially Leif. The book definitely went into explaining Leif’s past and his family. It also added more drama and flair to the “somewhat” love triangle. And I say somewhat because it’s not exactly the Twilight kind of love triangle where girl is torn between 2 guys. In this book, its more like “girl loves guy, guy loves girl, other guy wants the girl who doesn’t want him back” kind of thing. It’s really sad, at least on Leif’s part. There were times when I felt really bad for the guy because he didn’t hurt Pagan or anything even close to that, he busted- ass her entire lifetime to make sure she was happy, comfortable and safe. All he asked for in return was for Pagan to love him back just as how he loves her. Buuuuuttttt noooo, what does he get in return?! Nothing. Zip. Squat. Nada. Furthermore, it’s not his fault for who his parents are and what they do on the daily basis. Hence, I feel bad for the guy.
Overall, this is such a good continuation of the first book. It was such a fun read and every page was just as enjoyable than the previous. It couldn’t have been written any better. I’m really looking forward to the next book, Ms. Abbi G.! 🙂
Would I recommend this book?: Yes!
