And her life is only a shadow of the truth and that the truth is likely to be found in the shadows of her nightmaresWho is Rafa Who are the Rephaim And most importantly who can she trustFast paced and gripping Shadows the first book in the Rephaim serie One of these days the Rafa in a book will refer to a capri pant wearing wedgie picking Spaniard and not an angel On second thought I'm cool with the gorgeous heavenly version Shadows was a solid introduction to the Rephaim series and to debut author Paula Weston It had an engaging cast of characters including a loyal friend named MAGGIE and plenty of action and mystery to keep you on your toes until the end of the book Did I mention the angel pashing If I didn't it's only because I'm not sure I'm using the term correctly To put it in inelegant American terms there's hot and heavy tongue action The short chapters headed with progressively funnier titles keep the story moving briskly So why only 3 stars Even though 3 stars means a solid GOOD I feel like it's become the rating euivalent of kissing your cousin Of course some people ANGIE would be alllllll about that So here's the thing Gaby finds out early on that angels hellions HELLIONS you name it are after her This is when the fight or flight instinct usually kicks in for people Gaby chooses Door #3 stay and do nothing Now stay and do nothing wasn't just left out of fight or flight because it doesn't fit the rhyme scheme It's DUMB For me it's so dumb that I don't feel sorry for you when the shit hits the fan and whips back all over your face Is it any surprise they're snatching your people up I couldn't help but compare Shadows to another angel book Angelfall and Gaby to Penryn Because What Would Penryn Do Penryn would kick assWhile I liked the first half of the story I was also really ambivalent towards it because Gaby's decisions while understandable still annoyed me However and this is a testament to Paula Weston's writing Gaby wasn't unlikable which kept me reading And I'm glad because the story really picks up I couldn't put down the last 14 of the book and can't wait to read Book 2 Shadows has a great mix of plot and action I think this is going to be an exciting series and one that will definitely find its audienceRating I initially planned on giving this 3 stars which is what I gave Divergent but I actually plan on reading the seuel to this one so I'm bumping it up to 35 stars Noelle's fantastic review of Shadows is on Young Adult Anonymous

Shadows by Paula WestIt’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 o Although it’s pretty clear the inspiration behind SHADOWS comes from Cassandra Clare’s THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS series because there are countless similarities I uite enjoyed this worldIt’s a fast paced action packed story of angels angel offspring Nephilim demons and hellions controlled by demons as well as humans who unintentionally get mixed up in the warI genuinely enjoyed my time with this book I don’t know if it’s because I’m a huge fan of THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS so I was bound to like this from the start but it’s so action packed everything is always moving that I didn’t have time to get bored Not that I wanted toI wasn’t much attached to the characters though I didn’t mind them But I certainly would not mind if any ended up dead In fact I would welcome a possible future death with open arms I admit that this is an entirely morbid thought yet I can’t help but have it There are tons of characters so a death can make things even interesting without disrupting the story exactlyYou need to be warned about this there is insta love I wanted to warn you because there’s mention of romance in this series so I wanted you to know that it’s not of the swoon worthy type like you may be anticipating But it’s not ever present so don’t worry At the same time there is a suare romance going on meaning three love interests so get ready for that tooI’m curious about the seuel Now that we know a little about Jude and what may have happened to him I foresee some potentially interesting scenesBlog | Youtube | Twitter | Instagram | Google | Bloglovin’
