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.


Yes, it’s an “angel book”, but guys – I’m pretty sure this is one of the good ones. I’ve read so many amazing reviews for Shadows, and I seriously cannot express how excited I am for it to be released in the US in September. I’m guessing it’s in the realm of Angelfall and Unearthly, and if so, UGH SEPTEMBER GET HERE SOONER.

    • I totally loved Angelfall, too! I can’t wait for the sequel for that book, omg. But I agree – it’s totally hit or miss with angel books. The bad ones are SO bad, lol.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  1. The Cover looks awesome and the plot line is even better! Add in the fact that it has elements of romance and paranormal and I am in! Great pick. :)
