Shadows : Book 1 Paperback
by Paula Weston
Part of the Rephaim series
It's been 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?

Review by twistingthelens
I been be bored out of mind with most angel books. There are very few that keep me interested and keep me intrigued. This is one of those few. Weston does not fall into the traps so many have when writing of angels. There is something dark and light at the same time within her writing, that kept me guessing and entertained throughout. The characters were perfectly penned, and I am looking forward to visiting them again soon!
Review by DARKANG3L
From the start, I had been captivated into the world of Angels, Rephaim, and demons. Paula Weston did an extraordinary job when she created this book. The characters were all well developed and intriguing. I especially liked Rafa. He is definitely a fun and enticing character to read about.I found myself being drawn in from the very beginning and the pace was perfect. The mystery of Gabe's life unfolded perfectly, even though there is still so much to be discovered, I didn't find the story lacking in details. I still can't wait to uncover the rest of Gabe's story and what had happened when her memories had been modified, and I am looking forward to the next part of the story.The only real thing that bothered me with the book was how the conversations throughout the whole book were written in only ' instead of ". This threw me off a bit since i was not used to it, and it distracted me slightly from the book. That is why I gave the book four stars instead of five.
