Editorial Reviews

Sultry actress Ashley Litz sizzles with passion and suspense in this hotly anticipated sequel. Predestined reunites listeners with high school heroine Pagan - imbued with the unique ability to see souls - and her dark, dashing boyfriend Dank, aka Death. In the second installment of Existence, Pagan’s former fling, quarterback Leif Montgomery, mysteriously vanishes. Already experiencing disturbing visions from her childhood, Pagan’s angst is further aroused by Dank’s unsettling assertion that Leif has no soul. When her erstwhile ex returns, Pagan must make a heartbreaking decision. Throughout, Litz lusts and lilts with heart-melting heat. Her range and role-playing is as uncanny as the story itself, whether she’s playing small-voiced seven-year-old Pagan, naïve and vulnerable, or booming with lordly masculinity as dark, devilish, and dreamy Dank.

Publisher's Summary

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.

excellent story, annoying narration and awful sing

Would you consider the audio edition of Predestined to be better than the print version?

No

What did you like best about this story?

Pagan and dank. But not dank's singing. Shudder.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

With the God awful voices of G and Miranda. This isn't Anime. No need to squeal and cackle and screech.

Not a fan of Pagan

The book kept me interested enough but I have to admit the heroine got on my nerves. Will continue the series since I do want to see how it ends.

Just Ok....

I love all of Abbi's other series, especially the Sea Breeze books. This story was ok - just hard to get into. I wanted to care, I really did, but the story line fell short somehow. I really had a hard time with the whole idea of her loving "death", and the voodoo world creeped me out. The narrator did a great job with the main character, but she ruined the other characters. She made Miranda and G completely irritating. I don't think I am going to finish the series....

intriguing!

this is a very interesting book. I love it but there were some parts i didn't like too much. perhaps it's the male voice the narrator does but I love the other voices she does. it was an interesting adventure!

Get ready to question the feelings you have

As if I wasn't obsessed with the first book in this series enough, this book has me even more addicted.
** If you haven't read book one, stop, go read it and join me in the obsession that is the Existence series **
Now back to my review. This book really made me question my love for Dank. He didn't do anything wrong really but Abbi Glines had already made me love Pagan's sort of ex boyfriend Leif. I say sort of because they didn't really break up. He just disappeared. Until he comes back but not how Pagan expected. Secrets come out that are shocking and now Pagan's soul is on the line, again. Just when I thought I felt one way this story shocked me and made me question my feelings. I loved it! Yes we still have the teenage romance that we love in this story but this story has much more. There is the value of true love. Not just romantic love but the love a parent has for their child. A parent will do everything they can to save them even if the consequences aren't real clear. I can't wait to continue on in this series. Another great book by Abbi! And again this narrator brought this story to life. I felt like Pagan was confiding in me personally. And I still obsess over her voice for Dank.

EXCELLENT!

I really enjoyed this story. It's not too terribly deep or shallow, just enough of everything. Narrator does a good job with clearly different voices for each character. Some comments said she was screechy but I didn't find it so. This book could stand by itself but is a great series. I listened to book 1 also and enjoyed it. I am now going to read book 3.

Easily keeps your attention

Any additional comments?

This was a very good second book. It leads up to the confrontation between Dank and Ghede. Even though Pagan and Dank have been allowed to be together, they still have to contend with Ghede and the restitution he believes he is owed. Ghede knows that he can't take Pagan and targets those close to her.

Leif is still attempting to take back her affection but his attempts are stalled by Dank and Gee. Pagan has to come to terms with what Dank's job really requires. Pagan's mother is vacant for most of this book but does make an appearance when the specifics of her request to Ghede are needed.

As with the previous book, I got a strong sense of deja vu in this book because of the similarities to other similar series. The difference remains that I still enjoy this series and in most cases did not finish other similar series because I hated how the story line changed.

Best ever #2

Would you listen to Predestined again? Why?

Yes. Again I will in a heart beat.

What other book might you compare Predestined to and why?

I really cant compare to other book. Predestined is amazing so I can't compare.

Which character – as performed by Ashley Litz – was your favorite?

As always Death. Even though it could be better. I still loves it.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Again all of this moves me so much.

Any additional comments?

Love it .So read it

Ruined by the narrator

Some of the voices the narrator uses are painful. So squeaky and irritating. The inflection is often strange too. Ruined....

Predictable cheesy and dull

Something about this book just didn’t work for me at all. Really struggled to finish it.

Loved

Any additional comments?

Dank and Pagan know that Leif is not just the high school quarterback, and he's taking up space in Pagan's dreams. A story full of dark spirits, voodoo magic, love, lust, jealousy, heaven and hell. Dank is just awesome. Again, fantastic story, so well written.
