The Rephaim Bk4: Burn by Paula Weston
The final thrilling book in this series that will have you on edge to the final page. The first part of this series with essential background is also reviewed earlier on this blog so read it first.
The sons and daughters of the Fallen or the Rephaim are at sixes and sevens. Divided and all unaware of the truth and reality of each others lives. None more so than leading characters twins Jude and Gabe. Neither knew of the others existence believing they were dead but nothing is as it seems in this novel.
Meeting an 11 year old girl called Dani who was visions of the past and crucially the future is the game breaker. She makes the Rephaim realise that if they are to free the Fallen who are their fathers, they must unite. Then they can find out why they exist and what they are to do with their lives.
A major battle is looming, it could result in all out war between Heaven and Hell. If the Rephaim are not united how can they go into battle and win if they cannot have the confidence that someone is watching their back. You will have to read the novel to find out more.
Much of the novel is around the personal level of settling differences between the Rephaim. These highly sexed, beautiful teenagers who are 140 years old smoulder with desire. Their encounters are heated and urgent.
The plot is complicated by the telling in 3 time zones, now, one year ago and 11 years ago. At times it confuses but you get by.
They say you can’t buy a thrill but buy this and see if it is true. For teens who love horror and romance for that matter.
