The Rephaim Series by Paula Weston

Shadows by Paula Weston

4 Stars

The series premier Shadows is a great starts to The Rephaim series by Paula Weston.  I usually do not like urban fantasy books, but I like this book.  I read this synopsis and thought I would give it a try.  I am so glad I did.  I really got sucked into Ms. Weston’s world of Angles and Demons, the pages started turning, and before you know it I am now a fan of this author’s urban fantasy. 

The plot was great, the characters were enjoyable, and the mystery was interesting.  What more can you want?  This book had a paranormal feel and piqued my interest with the New Adult vibe and unique plot.  I immediately connected with the characters and fell in love with Rafa.  I highly recommend this book for a new take on the Angels and Demons genre. 


It’s almost a year since Gaby Winters was in the car crash that killed her twin brother, Jude. Her body has healed in the sunshine of Pandanus Beach, but her grief is raw and constant. It doesn’t help that every night in her dreams she kills demons and other hell-spawn.

And then Rafa comes to town. Not only does he look exactly like the guy who’s been appearing in Gaby’s dreams—he claims a history with her brother that makes no sense. Gaby is forced to accept that what she thought she knew about herself and her life is only a shadow of the truth—and that the truth is more likely to be found in the shadows of her nightmares.

Who is Rafa? Who are the Rephaim? And most importantly, who can she trust?

Fast-paced and gripping, Shadows, the first book in the Rephaim series, is a standout paranormal romance for fans of Richelle Mead and Cassandra Clare.
