Synopsis from Goodreads:

The final book in The Rephaim series.

Gaby remembers everything.
For a year she believed she was a backpacker chilling out in Pandanus Beach. Working at the library. Getting over the accident that killed her twin brother.
Then Rafa came to find her and Gaby discovered her true identity as Gabe: one of the Rephaim. Over a hundred years old. Half angel, half human, all demon-smiting badass—and hopelessly attracted to the infuriating Rafa.
Now she knows who faked her memories, and how—and why it’s all hurtling towards a massive showdown between the forces of heaven and hell.
More importantly, she remembers why she’s spent the last ten years wanting to seriously hurt Rafa.

My Thoughts:

5 stars – AMAZING!!!

This is one of my favourite series ever and I hate that it has come to an end. If you have not read this series then you really need to ASAP. Paula Weston is truly an amazing writer.

Burn was EPIC! In the past three books, Gaby had her memories blocked, but now she remembers everything. All the questions we have been dying to know are finally answered. Especially the one about why Gaby hates Rafa, and boy is it juicy! Gaby must reconcile who she was with who she had become without her memories, all while trying to stop a demon horde from over running her town, and like previous books, there was plenty of sword wielding action.

The characters in this series are outstanding. They leapt off the page from the first book, straight into my heart. Not only Gaby and the gorgeous Rafa, but the whole cast of Rephaim. I am going to miss these characters and would happily devour any books set in this world if Weston were to write them.

It ended perfectly, and with a brilliant writer like Weston I expected nothing less.

This series is a MUST READ for all paranormal/urban fantasy fans. Burn wraps up the series perfectly and will leave you breathless. If you are already a fan of this series, you will not be disappointed. If you haven’t read it yet, what are you waiting for?

  1. I LOVED how Weston brought this series together with Burn. There was so much that had to happen, but I never felt that any of it was rushed or glossed over. I absolutely loved getting to know the Gaby that she had been for “the accident”, and I am also super happy that it didn’t really change who she was.

    I agree that these characters are so vivid, even the smaller ones that don’t have a lo of page time. They’re all really lifelike.

    I look forward to reading more of Weston’s work, because I loved this series.

    Great review, Rochelle! 😀
