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.

   Predestined is the second book to the Existence trilogy by Abbi Glines. When I read Existence I was definitely not in love with it. There were many things that really bothered me with both the characters and the plot of the story. But, that being said, compared to Existence, Predestined was a MUCH better book -I'm completely shocked at how much I loved it.

   In Predestined we really get to see Pagan and Dank's relationship evolve. I think what really helped me change my opinion on these two was being able to read from Dank's POV. Seeing what they both feel for one another just made me fall in love with the pair. It also helped that there were many, oh-so-steamy moments *fans myself* ! I am much happier with the romance in this trilogy, and I hope, that it will only get better in the third book!

   Pagan, herself, was a stand out in Predestined. Her character is so much more admirable in book two. Not only does Pagan sacrifice herself for her loved ones, but she's also able to have strength even when Dank isn't there. I really found a deep respect for Pagan when she was staying away from Dank (after a certain tragedy that I don't want to spoil.) It just shows how Pagan understood that she needed to face the consequences of being in love with Death. And I think, through that process, it just strengthened their relationship. 

   Gee, a soul taker, made this book hilarious. There were a few times where I had to put the book down and laugh for a bit. I love characters like Gee- they making reading a lot more enjoyable. It was also nice to see her continue to be such a great friend to Pagan. On the other hand, my opinions changed dramatically towards Leif. He frustrated me beyond no end! I don't want to give away anything so I'm just going to leave it at: Me no likey Leif. 

   The whole plot of this book was so much more intricate and interesting. Your mind is taken on a roller-coaster ride of emotions that will make you cry, laugh, and most importantly, swoon.  And to top it off, we were left with another friggen addicting cliffhanger that has left me yearning for more. 

The Cover...

   The cover for this book is so eye catching. Get it? EYE catching! Because of Pagan's eyes on the cover?! Yeah, I know your laughing...... Love that we get to see Pagan on her own on this cover- very bad ass if I do say so myself. 

Favourite Quotes...

"Yes, of course. I was on her like, um... I believe that old woman last week we took after she'd burnt down her house cooking said 'like white on rice',"
-Gee

"What are you doing?"
"I'm going to enjoy a long overdue make-out session with my girl. That's what I'm doing." I explained, stepping into the room and closing the door behind me with one shove of my foot.
-Pagan and Dank

"Is this seat taken?" a warm sexy drawl asked and I lifted my gaze and smiled up at Dank.
"Yes. I'm saving it for my smoking hot boyfriend," I replied teasingly. 
Dank slid in beside me and put his arm around my shoulder. "Hmmm, well he should have gotten here sooner. You snooze, you lose."
-Dank and Pagan

"Well, let's see, I found out Pagan has low blood sugar and becomes a complete b--witch if she doesn't eat a candy bar during a stressful moment."
-Gee

Overall...

Overall Predestined made the Existence trilogy a stand out for me. I definitely recommend the series to all of you supernatural romantics out there. Book three, Ceaseless, comes out (according to goodreads) September 18, 2012. Check out Ceaseless' cover to the right. How do you guys feel about Predestined? Has it got you geared up for the epic conclusion? Let me know in the comments and be sure to follow me on twitter! Keep Reading!

  4. There may be practically a full week March Madness of action before the NCAA tournament announces their field on Selection Weekend. But even though that won't happen until Walk 12, March Madness Live it's simple enough to project the four Zero. 1 seeds in Drive Madness.

    The four top seeds should be March Madness Live Stream guarding national champion Villanova, North Carolina, Kansas and Gonzaga. Those four have recently been at the top of the rankings and still have also been the selections of bracketologists March Madness Bracket like ESPN's May well Lunardi and March Madness 2017 s Jerry Palm, and it will be a surprise if they didn't emerge at the conclusion of the convention tournaments that will be held at throughout the week.

    Villanova (28-3, 15-3 Big East) has put together a sensational season after beating New you are able to in last year's March Madness 2017 Live countrywide title game. Head trainer Jay Wright has retained his foot on the gas pedal, and the Wildcats have continued to produce on a regular most basic. NCAA March Madness

    Villanova is the Little. 1 seed in the Big East tournament 2017 March Madness , and while that league has regularly produced upsets in the conference tournament, it would be somewhat of a shocker if the Wildcats didn't make it to it game. If perhaps they face second-seeded Retainer, it could be a good game that will go down to the cable because Butler has defeated Villanova twice. Whether it is any other Big East team, the Wildcats would be a significant favorite.

  9. The Kentucky Derby 2017 will be the 143rd running of the Kentucky Derby, and is set for Saturday, May 6, 2017.
    Javier Castellano is arguably the best jockey in racing right now.
    Except, that is, at the Kentucky Derby 2017.

    It is a baffling fact: The top rider in the game -- he's won the Eclipse Award as the sport's best in each of the last four years -- has the worst record of any jockey ever to ride in the Kentucky Derby. And even with all his accomplishments, when the Run for the Roses draws near the most glaring omission from his resume starts gnawing at him.

    This is the one he wants, more than anything else.
    "To win this Kentucky Derby Live race, it would mean a lot," Castellano said. He paused for a moment, looked up and quietly continued his thought: "A lot," he said again.
