Forgotten Friday: Shadows by Paula Weston

This meme is about books that have been pushed aside while others have gone viral and made into movies. It can be old books, new books, any book that never got its (or enough) time  in the spot light.

This is a book about angels without most of the religious aspects you would expect. Actually, if I'm more specific it's about bastard half-angel children (who are now adults). This book is sexy, exciting, filled with adventure, and a tiny bit of love. This is an Aussie series which is a new one for me, there is a lot of terminology and slang that I'm not familiar with but I love it. It's about a girl name Gabby whose brother passed away and while she's trying to move on with her life discovers that it's not just her brother she has lost in her past. If you like fantasy, action, and a book with a lot of attitude, this book is for you.

Synopsis: 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.
