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

Ceaseless was an emotional rollercoaster and one that I loved. It was by far my favorite in this series and I was blown away by how much I enjoyed it. Also Pepe is on the cover so let us all take a moment to appreciate his lovely appearance. Any book with Pepe on it immediately draws my attention.

If I am being completely honest (which I always endeavor to be with my reviews) I was very leery going into Ceaseless. After reading the summary I was al

”I need you to remember me.”


This final book in the series starts with a shocking scenario as Pagan Moore’s memories of Leif, Dank, Gee have all been wiped clean. For Dank to truly have her, she must choose him while her high school boyfriend of three years (her soulmate) is brought back into the picture as she and Miranda attend their first year of Boone University. The story is told in alternating POVS of Pagan and Dank and was an exciting quick read.

Some implied face-palming may be present in this review.

...and here we come full circle, back to the rating that I gave for the first book - a hesitant 2.5 stars. I had high hopes for Ceaseless, especially after being pleasantly surprised by the second book and the extra PoV after book 2.

When I picked this up, I was hoping for a fun night with some sexual brain candy. While I did manage to get a helping of brain candy, it didn't make up for the rest of the story.

Seriously NOT looking forward to this book.

What do you call it when a series is totally lame, and tedious to read, yet you still want to see how the story turns out, even though you can't stand the characters?

I must come up with a term to describe this phenomenon.

Update: Interesting way to reinvent the love story, I'll give her that. Romantic tension is always a crowd pleaser.

But besides that, this book is JUST LIKE every other college set story lately. (Seriously, they're all exactly the same.)

This was awful. The story line was fucking ridiculous - Pagan's memories of Dank are erased by some sort of deity bitch (she literally came out of nowhere, why bother introducing a character properly when it's so much easier not to eh?). Pagan's memories were taken away so she could have a fair chance of getting together with her soulmate, Jay. The fact that Jay and Pagan already dated for 3 years, broke up and moved on didn't even seem to cross the deity bitch's mind. Anyway Dank is nat
This was an okay story, but I didn’t like it as much as the previous books in the series.

Pagan was an okay character, but her having her memory wiped was pretty irritating, and the fact that she didn’t even recognise Dank was just like de-ja-vu from the first book!

The storyline in this could have been good, I thought that we’d at least get a juicy love triangle with Jay thrown into the mix, but it was just rubbish. Jay didn’t fight for Pagan at all, and she didn’t really care about him either, s

He defied Heaven to keep her, he defeated evil to save her, but if her soul wants another... will he be able to let her go? Da faq? After all he did, she goes and falls in love with some other guy? Jeez, whattabitch, i would of just left her to die mate, you went to all that trouble to have her and now she wants someone else. Booooo you wh0re, now i don't even feel like starting the second book to read about his futile efforts.
Seriously need to read this! Abbi Glines is soo good at cliff hangers I'll be dying of anticipation until the new one comes out! Buuut I am nervous about her falling out of love with Dank and falling in love with Jay, call me crazy but I want her to stay with Dank! In the first book they said there was a way, I'll be terribly sad if they dont end up together!

Abbiiiiiiii!! I just love this woman! The Existence Trilogy has been one of my favorites since I first came across this series almost a year ago, with Dank and Pagan being two of my most-loved characters. I was anxiously awaiting this final book in the series to finally see them get their happy ending after all the torment and heartbreak, and WOW did Abbi Glines deliver!

I didn't read any of the teasers or blurbs for Ceaseless because I wanted to go in blind not knowing what the plot would be abo

WHAT. THE. HELL. I swear if Dank and Pagan don't end up together I'm gonna go crazy. I mean come on if a person/thing/death is willing to go to hell for you, and if your willing to never come back to earth for that person/thing/death you should end up with that person/thing/death! I feel like I'm gonna cry and punch something at the same time! Ceaseless better be good Abbi Glines...or else!

“I’m sick of the mopey shit. It is getting old. You can’t mope for the rest of eternity. Especially when you didn’t even fight for her. You drop the bomb on her that you end human life and then you expect her to accept you with open arms. This ain’t a damn soap opera.” -Gee

I so knew what was going to happen.I was 100% sure.I knew that no matter what,no matter who she was with,Death would make sure his love,Pagan,remained happy.

I was very nervous how this book was going to play out but I had no reason to be. I loved Ceaseless. It was a great ending to the Existence trilogy. Dank was sexy and sweet as hell in this book. He had me falling in love with him all over again. Another great one by Abbi.
Whoa! What a way to finish off the series. I love this book and love how it all turned out. I really didn't know what to expect when I started reading it, but I can tell you that I was not disappointed at all. In fact, I wanted more and am saddened that this series has ended.

The story basically picks up a few days after Predestined, and Dank has to win Pagan all over again. You see, the Deity's have erased her memory, and it is up to Pagan to make the choice of whether she wants to be with Dank

3.75 stars or 4...I can't decide. It was good, better than good but I think I was hoping for a little more. Don't get me wrong, I read it very quickly and it kept me interested but it just seemed anti-climactic in some way. It ended the way I wanted it to end so really I can't put my finger on it. I almost feel like this wasn't the final book in the series but maybe I have just become accustomed to epic epilogues.

What I did love is the Abbi Glines signature touch. I really LOVE the way Abbi Glin

HOW is the average rating for this book 4.26 stars? How??

Who would consider this piece of shit worthy of freaking 4.26 stars????

One thing I found myself constantly doing while reading this book was yawning. Alot. This is one of those few times that I had to force myself to finish a book.

The first two books in the trilogy were decent, I guess I liked them. They were somewhat interesting. This book, on the other hand, wasn't even remotely interesting. I don't think there were any memorable moments

Dear Ceaseless,

Thank you! You did not disappoint. You surpassed all of my expectations (and I expected A LOT). You made my day!!! I will never forget this series because of you! Yes you! You're my favorite book among the three, of course.



Dear Dank,

Al fin terminé esta trilogía! Y seguramente ustedes se preguntarán... "¿por qué esta tipa sigue leyendo estos libros si no le gustan?". La verdad es que siempre he tenido esa rara obsesión por terminar libros o sagas, aún cuando no me gusten, no me agrada dejar las cosas a medias y no me siento capaz de criticar una historia sino la conozco a profundidad.

OMG!Omg!Ceaseless is here..OMG!!

I LOVE the cover..i think i love all the three covers...they hold a mystery to be unfolded..but this one was best!

I have been waiting for Ceaseless for such long time that i didn't waste time and read the whole book in one sitting...and it was totally worth loosing my study time for a few hours.

It was all what i thought it would be and much much more..there were twists and turns i didn't expected..but they were pleasant nonetheless.

Well...I felt this book was a filler. You step from the first two books which have action, angst and drama to this one. I'm a touch disappointed in all honesty. Not to mention, the spelling errors as well as formatting had way more in this book. Was it a rush to production or editing? I believe so.

My major dislikes of this book was that as the reader you weren't given a clear picture of why her memory was gone. You had to wait for far too long for a explanation rather than one insinuated. It was

It only took me over two years, but yes, I am done and I have to say, I really enjoyed Ceaseless.

There will be spoilers from the previous books.

So Pagan lost her memory. Dank has to get Pagan to love him again and choose him or Pagan will never regain her memory!

I loved the plot. To have Dank so torn up and pursuing Pagan was a treat to read. Ceseless wasn’t over the top, there wasn’t a lot of action, drama, but there was plenty of heart

I think this suffered from the curse of the sequel and even though i loved the first and second books this fell short for me. Don't get me wrong, i still liked reading it but part of me felt like the whole thing with Jay was a bit pointless.

NOOO. Please! Can't we just leave it at graduation? Who cares about Jay!? If Dank and Pagan break up, or if she hurts him, I'm not going to make it. I'm really actually terrified to read this one. Can't we have gotten a book about her on being on the path to immortality like was hinted at the end of the first book? Wouldn't that have been better and a lot less emotionally damaging? Jeez. I'm have a very bittersweet attitude towards this book. I want more of the story but if Pagan gets with Jay.. ...more

Kinda disappointed. What I loved about this series, especially the last book was the crazy adventures that Pagen, Dank and Gee got themselves into. But this book felt so rushed and tided up in a nice little bow. I mean I love stories with happy endings, especially when the author gives them a reprieve on the action, but I felt really underwhelmed reading this.

Most of you know I love Abbi Glines, right? So, this is no surprise that I loved this book. To be honest, while I love the Existence Series it is my least favorite of Abbi's. However, I really truly loved how she wrapped this series up.

I was a tad concerned at the end of Predestined. My need for Pagan and Dank to be together was suffocating. So, when Jay came back into the picture, I was really nervous. BUT, that's one of the things I do love about the series. I love the soul mate angle. Now, w

It’s over! I think I’m sad that this series is over already. I first read Existence on May of this year, it’s been only four months and it’s over.

It’s the first series I’ve completed in a long time. If I look back I think it’s the first series I complete since Twilight, which is saying a lot (wait, there was also Fifty Shades, but I’d rather forget about that one). I’ve started lots and lots of series since then, but this is the only one I’ve had the courage to actually finish.

I think it’s safe

"Because after hearing that I can't let you leave until I've had my fill. Get naked, Dankmar.”
