Gaby thought her life couldn’t get more complicated.
She’s almost used to the idea that she’s not the nineteen-year-old backpacker she thought she was. She can just about cope with being one of the Rephaim - a 140-year-old half-angel - whose memories have been stolen. She’s even coming to grips with the fact that Jude, the brother she’s mourned for a year, didn’t die at all.
But now Rafa—sexy, infuriating Rafa—is being held, and hurt, by Gatekeeper demons. And Gaby has to get the bitterly divided Rephaim to work together, or Rafa has no chance at all.
It’s a race against time - and history. And it may already be too late.
I have been a part of the Rephaim series blog tours since the very beginning, so I am so happy to continue being a part of this tour and bringing this series to the forefront. I've been waiting for this book to come out for so long, especially after the ending of Haze. I'm so excited that the rest of the series is finally making it's way to me. There are still so many questions, especially since Gaby still has no memory of her past life.
This book picks up right after we left off in Haze, there is more action as things begin to heat up between the Rephaim and the Gatekeepers. Not only that, but there is more disagreement between the Rephaim angels, which makes for a more difficult plan of attack to save Rafa. Honestly, I love growing alongside Gaby as she is slowly getting information about her past, and she somewhat is reminded of who she used to be. But there is also the interaction between her and Jude, now that she knows her brother is truly alive and well (with also no memory of their past), both of them are learning to navigate this world together as a team, while learning about each other.
This is one of those series that just keeps getting more intense as Paula Weston continues with the story. As each book comes out, Gaby learns that there are more secrets being kept and even though questions are answered, more also come up. Readers continue learning along Gaby, I've always loved stories where the main character doesn't know everything that is going on, because readers get more details and it helps readers connect with the character more. I honestly can't wait to find out what will happen in Burn. The way Paula ended things in this book (as in basically every other book of this series) was with a bang, and leaves you hanging on the edge of your seat just needing the next book and more of these characters! I can see that there will be so much to learn as soon as the next book opens.
I can't wait to see more of Gaby and Rafa in the next book as well! The relationship between these two has grown so much over this series, despite whatever happened in their past (which is still very much left unknown). These two are so amazing together and especially with how everything progressed in this book, I just can't wait to see how everything will be handled after the ending of this!
This series is one of my absolute favourite angel series of all time and I am so excited and yet scared out of my mind to see how Paula will end everything with these characters. I have truly come to love everyone here, and this is my review on how much I love everything about Paula Weston's writing!! So thank you very much Paula for bringing such a beautiful story to the public!!
