‘But what if we can’t find Jude?’
He leans closer. His breath is warm on my ear. ‘We will.’
‘How can you be so sure?’ I want to believe him so badly, but this is Rafa. The guy who’s all action and no plan. His smile is tired, knowing. An echo of a shared past I don’t remember.
‘Because I’m not smart enough to give up, and you don’t know how to.’
Gaby Winters’ nightmares have stopped but she still can’t remember her old life. Still can’t quite believe she is one of the Rephaim—the wingless half-angels who can shift from place to place, country to country, in the blink of an eye. That she was once the Rephaim’s best fighter. That demons exist. That Rafa has stayed.
But most of all, she can’t quite believe that her twin brother, Jude, might be alive.
And Gaby can’t explain the hesitancy that sidetracks the search for him, infuriates Rafa, and sends them, again, into the darkest danger.
‘If this doesn’t drag young adult readers away from their computer screens, nothing will… Aussie author Paula Weston’s debut is a fast-paced, sensational ride, which screams “read me” and “turn me into a movie”. ’
‘Fans in need of another angel series after finishing Lauren Kate’s Fallen series will devour Shadows, eager for the next books in the Rephaim series; there’s a heroine—Gaby—to get behind, a boy—Rafa—to fall in love with, as well as the many sides fighting to win you over.’
‘The smart-mouthed character of Rafa kicked the Edwards, Peters and Jacobs of the YA world to the curb. If only he were real…’
‘If you told me last week that I’d be fan-girling over a YA urban fantasy series I would’ve stared at you blankly then hurled a copy of Friday Brown at your face…. I loved this book. Loved. And it’s an angel book.’
‘Filled with combat, character development and even some idiocy/humour, Haze is the most perfect angel book I’ve ever read and I truly deem that if you have not read this series, you are missing out on too much. Read it and never regret it, you’ll be addicted.’
‘[Haze] has everything I love about Aussie YA…The danger is real, the stakes are high and the Rephaim deliver. I’m still reeling…I cannot recommend this series enough.’
‘What an amazing sequel…[I] literally devoured it in one sitting I adored it that much…filled with some kick-butt action-scenes, perfect characterisations and a mesmerising storyline that gets better and better.’
‘If you like feisty characters, heart-pumping action and sexy romance then this book is for you…Haze is a must-read.’
‘Some books you crave. You keep returning to the cover art and re-reading the blurb, you stalk the authors’ Twitter, Tumblr, Goodreads profiles in the hopes of gleaning morsels of information…you count-down to release day. Paula Weston’s Haze was just such a craving…Weston is something special indeed, and The Rephaim is one of the most original and intriguing new young adult series available.‘
