Can he make her fall in love with him… again?

When Pagan Moore proved worthy of Death’s devotion, he was given the gift of getting to keep her.

But Dank was never promised that Pagan would keep him.

When a soul is created, so is its mate. In every lifetime those souls find each other. They complete the other’s destiny. It’s time for Pagan’s soul to choose if she truly wants an eternity at Death’s side or if she wants the mate created just for her.

Dank didn’t think he had to worry about her choice. He knew where her heart belonged. Until he realized that every kiss, every touch, every moment of their time together would be washed from her memories. He would have to win her heart all over again and prove to her soul that he was where she belonged.

If only her soul’s mate wasn’t right there standing in his way.

My Thoughts

Dank and Pagan had happily defeated Lief’s daddy, the Voodoo Lord himself.  We thought their story  ended with an happily ever after.  But we forgot one pesky little fact.  Each human is born with a soul mate.  Since Dank, is well Death, he could not be her soul mate. 

Pagan must choose-Dank or her soulmate, Jay.  Ironically, it’s the same Jay that Pagan dated for 3 years before he went off to college.  To make the contest fair- say bye bye to Pagan’s memories of Dank.  How is that fair- her memories of Jay stay.

This is an interesting addition to the series.  There’s no true heart-stopping action or tension in the story.  No lives are in danger, no souls being stolen without being on the list.  Dank does create a sense of urgency with his worrying over Pagan choosing Jay.  Why, though is the question?  There is no true contest between Jay and Dank.  For crying out loud, he hit on a gal while waiting for Pagan.  Some soul mate he is.

As I read this book, I thought to myself huh?  I don’t get it.  Why did the series needs this story?  While entertaining and of mind-consuming, something was just off.  I felt like it was missing something.   Gee did make it more entertaining, with one-liners placed throughout.  “Alright, Peggy Ann, let’s get you out of here before he sings again.  Apparently, it’s your keyptonite. “ or “Voodoo boy doesn’t know when to quit.”

My Rating 3 out 5

Other Characters
