Shimmer (The Rephaim Book III)

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.


‘have been dying to get my hands on the third book of the Rephaim series ever since Haze officially turned the Rephaim series into my favourite angel series ever. The tension is palpable and the pacing is sharp making Shimmer the most fierce and kick-arse book in the series so far…I haven’t been this pumped for a series since those early Hunger Games days.’.’

Inkcrush

‘Late for dinner, late for work, late late late. Thanks so much, Paula Weston. I picked up Shimmer and forgot everything else…a gripping tale of half angels, demons, love, sacrifice and very cool violence, wrapped up in one nicely written package.’

Adelaide Advertising

‘Paula Weston is the queen of cliff-hanger endings, and this one’s going to blow your mind! I have absolutely loved reading Shimmer, and can’t praise the Rephaim series highly enough.’

Speculating on Spec Fic

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

‘Shimmer is another stellar instalment in this, the best Angel-themed paranormal series I’ve ever read, and it’s so much heart-palpitating fun that I don’t even mind being led back to that cliffhanger rock-face again for the ending.’

Alpha Reader (Danielle Binks, author of The Year the Maps Changed and The Monster of her Age)

‘Fast-paced and action-packed, this book doesn’t stop from page one.’

Launceston Examiner

‘Beautiful writing, witty dialogue, badass characters and an intense and richly-crafted tale, what else can you ask for? If you want an angel series that will blow your mind away, this is the one. Now, I only have one question: where’s book 4?’

YA Midnight Reads

‘After finishing Shimmer, I can’t suppress the urge to tell everyone I know just how great a series the Rephaim books are…This series is one of my favourite urban fantasy reads and without a doubt my all time favourite angel series.’

Fictional Thoughts

This is definitely a series that comes around once every few years and damn….I LOVE IT!

          OMG!!!! i loved haze, i bought the book but i can’t find shimmer anywhere 🙁 i’m gonna keep looking though, if you make a movie for this series, i definitely recommend, Dylan O’Brien for Rafa, or Matthew Ddario (might’ve spelled that wrong) Either way, I TOTALLY AM OBSESSED WITH YOUR BOOKS!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG THEY ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! in shimmer or burn does Gaby get her memories back? and also, why is it that you use these ‘ instead of ” when a character is talking? just curious! anyway, you are awesome, bokos are awesome. so therefore your books are like THE BOMB! i talk to much, anyway BYE!

            Thanks Jill! Nice casting thoughts. 🙂 So glad you’re loving the series so far.

            Re your ability to find Shimmer…would I be right in assuming you are in North America? If so, you’ll be able to buy Shimmer from 8 March and then Burn on 7 June. 🙂

            And the single quotation marks are in-house style at my Australian publisher and have carried across to other editions. 🙂

            Thanks again. Hope you enjoy the rest of the series!

            Paula

    WHY DO YOU HATE AMERICA? WHAT DID WE EVER DO TO YOU? WE HAVE TO WAIT TWO YEARS AFTER THE PUBLICATION DATE TO GET IT? WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY I JUST WANTED AN EBOOK. I’LL GIVE YOU TWENTY DOLLARS OR MORE I JUST I JUST NEED IT NOW

    1. JENNABRANDI says:

      Seriously though, I’m in love with this series and I’m probably just going to buy the australian version even though it’ll take forever to get here. I still wish it were possible to just buy the Australian ebook version over yonder in the US of A, but, alas, we can’t always get what we want.

      1. paulaweston says:

        Hi there,
        Just to clarify, I am very fond of Americans. 🙂 The release dates of my books in the US are determined by publisher, not me – so I understand your impatience.
        But I’m glad you’re enjoying the series!
        Paula

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.
