Goodreads: "She was mine. I owned her soul…until Death stole her heart."
LEIF is a novella from the Existence series. It is glimpses into Leif's point-of-view during both Existence and Predestined.
When a Soul is close to death Leif's father give him the option let her die or save her and she is yours, Leif spends his life looking after Pagan making sure he is cared for and protected. when she is 17 it is time for her soul to go to him... but there is one problem the soul he 'owns' and loves is in love with another. He spends all his time trying to get pagan to love him, and once he has pagan in his possession he must make the decision whether to let her go or not.
I really enjoyed this book, it is Leif's side of Existence and Predestined. I have to admit in Predestined i hated Leif, i thought he was selfish and horrible but this book helps you see a different side. i will still say i don't like him and i still think he is selfish but you do see that he loved pagan and he did want the best for her . you also see the anguish he goes through letting Pagan go.
If you enjoyed the other books in the series i would definitely recommend this book. it gives you a whole new view on Leif.
