"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.
One of the reasons why I dig companion novels is that they help me understand more about the characters they feature. This book did its job. I was able to know Leif more, aside from what Pagan and Dank think of him in Predestined. I was able to get inside his head and take a step closer to understanding him.
What I learned is that Leif is a coward. Okay, that was probably obvious in the first two books. But actually, he's more than that. I think he's a kind and misunderstood guy. He's a little sad, too. I really don't blame him for wanting to have a companion. And anyway, I think he deserves more credit for saving Pagan's life and looking after her for so many years. I believe he truly loves Pagan. He's a coward, but it doesn't erase the fact that he really cares for her. And he proves it by letting her go. Good one, Leif.
There's really nothing much in Leif that we haven't seen in Existence and Predestined except for the little bits from Leif's side. And yeah, Sabine. I get a hunch that she's not just a random character. For Leif's sake, I hope not.
