Shimmer blurb and the title of Book 4

Text Publishing has come up with a fantastic early cover blurb for Shimmer (out in July), which I’m busting to share. So here it is (warning – there’s a spoiler if you haven’t read Haze):

ShimmerGaby 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.

And now, drumroll for the title of Book 4 of the Rephaim series (the last one)…


Hope you like it. 🙂

    Oh man, that blurb is really compelling and has completely whet my appetite (cannot wait for July!)

    Also, Burn sounds awesome for the last book. Sounds like it’s going to be a killer of a conclusion (which I know it will be 🙂 )

    Also, I know I’ve said it before, but I am really loving the cover for Shimmer. It’s very luminous – gorgeous!

      Thanks Nomes. I love the blurb for Shimmer. 🙂 And I can’t wait to see what Indigo Books in the UK come up with for the cover of Burn. The complete set should look stunning.

About Me

I’m the author of the Rephaim series and The Undercurrent.

For my day job, I’m a writer-journalist-professional communicator, where my writing involves a lot less profanity.

I grew up in regional South Australia and now live in the Scenic Rim with my husband and a retired greyhound.

If you’re interested in how I came to land a publishing deal, you can read the short version in this post from August 2011. There’s a longer version (in a guest post) here.

Paula Weston
