Library Summary-“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.–Publisher’s description.”
I absolutely loved this book! Although it took it’s time getting to the point.
I LOVE Dank! He is incredibly sexy! I would love to have a boyfriend like him! He loves Pagan, he sings to her in her sleep, he keeps her safe from harm, etc. He is the PERFECT boyfriend, even though he’s death.
Just to prove my point, here are some quotes from Dank:
“You tempt me.I can’t be tempted.I’m not made to be tempted,but you,Pagan Moore,you tempt me.From the moment i came for you i was drawn in.Everything about you..”One of his hands left my waist and moved up to gently caress my arm.”You make me crazy with need.With want.I didn’t understand it at first.But now i know.It’s your soul calling to me.Souls mean nothing to me.They aren’t supposed to.But yours has become my obsession.”
“You’re the only thing I want most in the world yet the one thing I cannot have. Because to have you completely would be impossible. You cannot go where I walk.”
“I love you,” I said, causing his face to contort in pain.
“I’m not a man so I do not have a heart that loves as a human does. I’m an immortal god that dwells with supreme power because I hold the keys to Death. But you are my existence. I am yours.” Hot tears streamed down my face as I stared into the face of someone who comprehended an emotion much stronger than my weak, feeble words of love.”
Okay, how could you NOT fall in love with Dank after hearing those words? Oh how i wish he was real!
Anyway, i really liked this book although, like i said above, it took too long to get to the point. I mean, I like descriptive writing but not so descriptive that it’s slow. I know you need to introduce everything and everyone in the beginning of your story, but you need to do it at the right pace. Not too fast, not too slow.
Other than that, I really liked this book and recommend it to fans of the Hush Hush series.
