Meet the Author

Abbi Glines can be found hanging out with rockstars, taking out her yacht on weekends for a party cruise, sky diving, or surfing in Maui. Okay maybe she needs to keep her imagination focused on her writing only. In the real world, Abbi can be found hauling kids (several who seem to show up that don’t belong to her) to all their social events, hiding under the covers with her MacBook in hopes her husband won’t catch her watching Buffy on Netflix again, and sneaking off to Barnes and Noble to spend hours lost in the yummy goodness of books. If you want to find her then check Twitter first because she has a severe addiction to tweeting @abbiglines. She also blogs regularly but rarely about anything life changing. She also really enjoys talking about herself in third person. www.abbiglines.com

    So glad I read it

    Love reading Leif's pov. It really made me understand him. Really would have liked to known more about what happened to him in the end though.

    Leif...please just stop with the whining...

    I honestly thought that maybe by reading Leif's POV I would change my mind about how I felt about his character but quite honestly this book really cemented what I originally thought of him. A self-absorbed entitled Daddy's boy who is blindsided by the "love of his life" when she falls in love with Death and nothing turns out the way he expects it to. I can actually see in my mind Leif stomping around swinging a bouquet of black roses around yelling, "It's not fair, it's not fair!" and then throwing the bouquet on the floor, crossing his arms, and pouting like a little spoiled boy . I am really not impressed with the story nor the writing however I do have to say I love the cover.

    Good Short About Leif!

    Book 2.5, is the back story on Leif, although short and often a repeat of what has already been covered in books 1 & 2, being told from his point of view makes it well worth reading! Understanding a little more about who Leif really is makes him much more likable as he seems to have been a naive pawn, caught up in his father's web.

    'Leif' is a great little add-on to the 'Existence' trilogy, it gives us a brief - but surprisingly in-depth - look at Leif's life where Pagan is concerned =) he's not all bad... right? =)

    Really? You Do This to Me?

    Honestly, Leif is technically one of the bad guys in Existence and Predestined (more so in Predestined, but he is Dank's love rival in Existence...makes him a bad guy then too). And yet, I can't work up even a shred of dislike for this guy. And now, after reading this, I'll never be able to hate him.

    Leif is an honest-to-goodness great guy, soul or no soul. I've no doubt if it wasn't for Dank, Pagan--or any girl, really--would be falling head over heels for this boy. And here, in this little novella, you get to fall in love with him and feel sorry for him all in one package. Of course, I'd never pick him over Dank, but he really is a true tortured 'soul,' even without the actual soul part.

    It's a short read, but it's only $0.99 too. It's really nice to see what he was thinking, although it makes you feel ten times worse when you realize he was ALWAYS thinking about Pagan and is honestly completely and sincerely totally in love with her.

    So, if you--like me--are into the Existence series, I'd recommend reading it. It adds to the characters and lets you see how Leif's feeling and why he does things. I enjoyed it.

    (Honestly, I've never read a love triangle where I actually loved BOTH of the guys involved...very trying on my emotions here, Abbi. If Dank wasn't so awesome, I might have a split decision, but in the end I'd never pick Leif over him. Still, just hate Leif...)

    Loved it!

    I loved this insight into Leif, I really hope Abbi completes his story, this is a must have if you are a fan of the Existence series. It fills in a lot of gaps that give the original story more depth. Personally I think Abbi is setting us up for Leif's story in this novella.

    Not good

    Liked existance but this was spastic all over the place. It does explain what leif is but not much else. Skip it and read the 2nd addition to existance. It will cover what this was supposed to tell.

    Great Companion!

    I really enjoyed reading Leif's POV. And I was glad to see him get a happy ending. He deserved it.

    *Sigh* just reading just short novella on Leif makes me like him more. He's supposed to be "the bad guy" that wants Pagan instead of her being with Dank but that's so not the case with him. This is based on his point of view and it just shows that he's nothing like his father and he's actually caring. Just hopefully he finds someone that wants to be with him.

    Leif was just a 94 pages check in through Leif’s eyes. We get a few random scenes from Existence and Predestined. Also have a few pages on what happened after Dank saved Pagan from the underworld.

    That ending definitely made it seem as though we’ll be seeing more from Leif at some point and I have to say, sign me up I’ll be reading it. Maybe it’s my ability to fall for an anti-hero but I felt for Leif through all three of these books and then this novella as well. I don’t think he was a bad guy, he was just confused. He thought life was going to go one way, made some bad choices, was a little crazy, but he wasn’t a bad guy.

    Ultimately, this novella is not required reading unless you wanted more Leif like I did. Nothing new was added to the story. I do wish Glines would have answered some questions I had about Leif’s parents. Were they soulless? Real people? Was he really adopted?

    I hope Leif gets his happily ever after at some point.. yes, I realize this makes me crazy, but I feel for the kid… leave me alone. If you’ve read the rest of the series and you have sympathy for Leif like I do then I would pick up this novella.

    Okay

    This was almost an exact replica of the second book, only told by Leif's point of view. I was expecting a little something extra, bt this left me hanging too. I still however cannot get past my feelig sorry for Leif. He is a product og his own environment and his father. I wish someone ciuld see him for the good he does have inside.

    A different point of view.

    In the series you started off thinking what a jerk. Then in a way, a wimp for not standing up to his father. Here you get to see his interations from his stand point. Towards the end you start to feel sorry for him and sort of like the charactor. Wanting to see what will become of him.

    Sucks To Be Him

    I felt really bad for this voodoo prince. He was misunderstood in so many ways and Pagan never sought to look above his flaws, not even for a significant moment. Really interesting to see his POV and know exactly what he felt during those mments. With Pagan's POV it comprised of nothing but ''oh, he's evil, but the way he chuckles and rubs his thighs can't be evil."
    Oh, and I love the book cover. He makes Dank run for his money.
    Like I said, it sucks to be him.
