"The fear I'd seen in her eyes last night was gone...She looked less tense and more like my mom again. Now that I'd awakened and the nurse assured her I would recover just fine, she seemed less tense, and more like my mom again."
Really?!? Does she seem less tense and more like your mom again?
The writing is boring as heck, not to mention stiff and awkward, there's no life in these pages at all because the writer obviously doesn't have the ability to bring a story to life through nuance, dialogue, setting and descriptions, in other words, she has no idea how to create an atmosphere. Speaking of which, there are no physical descriptions of the characters, the dialogue between the characters is a complete mess and thus unbelievable, people just don't speak that way, especially teenagers.
I really feel like this author is trying to copy Rachel Vincent's Soul Screamers series because the similarities there, but unlike Rachel Vincent who's an artist, this book just doesn't pull it off, isn't even in the stratosphere of pulling it off. The characters are too unreal (Pagan is a completely boring Mary Sue), and the scenarios leave a lot to be desired before anyone will be able to say I can see that happening, or even to suspend disbelief. In it's entirety this story is just too ridiculous.
It could have been a good story, for a writer with a lot more skill. If you want to just read words on a page without being pulled into the story and living vicariously through the characters, This is the one for you. If not, keep it moving.
Existence by Abbi Glines was a good paranormal romance novel. I really enjoyed some aspects of this novel. However, there were a few things didn't really work for me.
The paranormal aspect of this novel was an entertaining new twist on the typical fallen angel/sojourner premise. This novel wasn't about angels. It was similar, but it was also unique in its own way.
The romance between Pagan and Dank was nice, but I had a hard time believing in them. I enjoyed hearing about their connection, but I would have like to have seen it more. It was obvious that Pagan and Dank had strong feelings for one another, but I had no idea what their feelings were based upon. Their relationship would have been more believable if they had talked more and had gotten to know one another better. Overall, I would have liked to see their relationship develop more.
I also could have done without all of the extra people in their relationship. Pagan and Dank both dated other people when they knew that they would never love them. Why did Pagan lead Leif on? It was cruel and selfish. Why in the world did Dank date Kendra, Leif's ex-girlfriend? He had no feelings for her whatsoever, and their relationship didn't add anything to novel at all. It was randomly thrown in and pointless.Read more ›
Aside from the ending, I really liked Existence. I liked Pagan and thought she added a lot to the story. It will be interesting to find out why she could always see the souls. That aspect was never explained and even a vague explanation would've been preferable to none. Leif was an okay character. At the very beginning to the story we got a tiny glimpse into who he was with the whole adoption story, but that was all we got. Once Pagan agreed to date him there was nothing more to him and he got all lovey and mushy all the time. Really bored me to be honest!! I am definitely looking forward to finding out more about Leif and who he really is in the next book! I usually hate love triangles but in this case it didn't bother me because I never felt like Leif and Pagan really had anything. It always felt fake and forced to me, so I was thankful there wasn't any serious tug of wars between the two guys. Dank was great as well... of course he did the hot/cold thing that all YA leading males do, BUT I still liked him, just hated the name! Why Dank?! Why???
Anyhow, good book, fun story and I'll definitely read the next!!
