Book Review: Haze By Paula Weston

Name: Haze
Author: Paula Weston
UK publisher: Orion
Summary: "But what if we can’t find Jude?"
He leans closer. His breath is warm on my ear. "We will."
"How can you be so sure?" I want to believe him so badly, but this is Rafa. The guy who’s all action and no plan. His smile is tired, knowing. An echo of a shared past I don’t remember.
"Because I’m not smart enough to give up, and you don’t know how to."
Gaby Winters’ nightmares have stopped but she still can’t remember her old life. Still can’t quite believe she is one of the Rephaim—the wingless half-angels who can shift from place to place, country to country, in the blink of an eye. That she was once the Rephaim’s best fighter. That demons exist. That Rafa has stayed. But most of all, she can’t quite believe that her twin brother, Jude, might be alive.
And Gaby can’t explain the hesitancy that side-tracks the search for him, infuriates Rafa, and sends them, again, into the darkest danger.
Review: When I finished Shadows I couldn't comprehend just how amazing this book was. I needed the second (Haze) straight away. I was in love with the characters, the story, the setting and the premise. It was just really original. I love paranormal and was so happy to get into another series that I could adore.
I didn't think It could get better but it did. Haze had the amazing essence of Shadows but just knocked up another level. This skilfully craft novel contains some history, mysticism, mystery, intrigue, humour and romance in a neat package that is not just entertaining but challenges your mind and imagination. So many twists and turns. So many revaluations and jaw dropping moments.
The characters never get old. We meet new ones and old ones. Rafa the lead male character is still so addicting. Just writing this review makes me want to go back and re read them. His stance in the book is so refreshing. Gabriella I adore. She is probably one of the easiest girls to read. I say this because I find some lead heroines to be very annoying... But this girl is brave, Knows what she wants, beautiful and just a joy to read. Her and Rafas relationship is so hot and oozes sexual tension you just cant put the but down because of it!
I love Angels in YA. Its my best type of paranormal genre. This book just proves why. If you are not a huge fan of Paranormal and haven't really found that one book that has made you think "WOAH" I would defiantly recommend giving this one a go. Its cleverly written and your on the edge of your seat through out with baited breath.
I find myself getting lost in these books all the time. I will say it again... I really am so passionate and interested in these books and the story. If you want to be blown away with a book then pick up Shadows then Haze and prepare to be taken somewhere only a Angel can go. ;)
