As kick-ass as Buffy, as cool as True Blood and as sexy as Fallen, this is the third in Paula Weston's explosive Rephaim series.
Paula Weston is a Brisbane-based author and co-owner of a two-woman writing/design consultancy. She is an avid reader and blogger, a huge fan of Australian literature and fantasy/paranormal stories, a closet comic reader and TV addict and is borderline obsessed with the Foo Fighters. She and her husband share their home with a retired greyhound and a moody cockatiel. SHADOWS, the first book in the Rephaim series, was her debut novel.Find Paula on Twitter @PaulaWeston and visit her website at www.paula-weston.com
This series has all of my favourite things - gloriously entertaining romance, heart-stopping action, clever and interesting plot - all skilfully tied together with barrels of tension and emotion. It's angels without the accompanying drone of been-there-done-that paranormal fiction. * REALM OF FICTION * Weston doesn't disappoint in this latest installment of her excellent Rephaim series. Shimmer may lack the sizzling romantic tension with Rafa imprisoned for a good chunk of the book, but delivers on incredible action set pieces, high tension political stand-offs between the different factions within the Rephaim, and develops the interesting morality and mythology of the Angels. * THE BOOK BAG * Where I had loved SHADOWS and HAZE, I found myself to to be obsessed with SHIMMER. I read the book in three days; it was definitely the right kind of summer read that kept you turning the pages, and wanting the story to last forever. -- Alix Long * DELIGHTFUL BOOK REVIEWS * This series is one of the most mature YA series I've read so far, and one that deserves to be huge where the urban fantasy crown is concerned. It has fallen angels fighting with Katanas, demons ready to rip your throat out and a cast of characters so layered and realistic it's like they're standing right in front of you. It's quite possibly my favourite of all the urban fantasy/paranormal series out there; I honestly can't think of anything that could better it (excluding Twilight, of course, 'cos I still have a special love for that book), and I don't say things like that lightly! Read it! * WONDROUS READS *
