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.

Read a teaser

Burn is everything I expected from the final instalment of The Rephaim, a brilliantly plotted novel where action, romance, and intrigue come together to create magic.

Speculating on SpecFic

It was amazing. It was everything I hoped it would be and more. I loved it.

Deeply satisfying conclusion to the stellar Rephaim series, one of my favourite angels and demon tales ever.

This friends is how you finish a series. Urban fantasy doesn’t get any better.

Pauline, Riverbend Books (Brisbane)

If you are a fan of superbly written, action-packed fiction with interesting, brilliantly flawed characters – look no further than Paula Weston’s Rephaim series. This is a series you won’t want to put down!

Fictional Thoughts

I’ve loved everything about this series, and the finale was exactly what I wanted. Secrets revealed, lies exposed, romance galore and second-chances. I’m going to miss this world and these characters so damn much, but I thank Paula Weston for gifting readers this epic rollercoaster of a ride.

Alpha Reader

This series is ADDICTIVE!

Thebookkat

Burn does right by its readers. All plots are brought together well. They are tied up beautifully, with emotion and affection.

Reading Time (The Children’s Book Council of Australia)

Burn is a thrilling, page-turning ending to a brilliant series by the talented Australian author, Paula Weston. From beginning to end, I could not put this book down.

Marianne Curley (author of Avena series)

You know that the final book in a series is good when the first thing you want to do after finishing it is to read all of the books over from the beginning so it doesn’t feel over. Burn does just that. I loved every second of it.

Brittany’s Book Rambles

This is an excellent conclusion to a series that I have absolutely loved. Angels mythology set on the Australian coastline? Familiarity of landscape alongside the wonders of the paranormal world? Never thought I would see it done so well…Yeah I enjoyed the hell out of this.

Riffle (Missus B)

It’s fitting Paula Weston’s Rephaim series should wrap up with a finale of biblical proportions. What else would you expect from the wonderfully written story of half-angel, demons, love, passion and prophecy?

Adelaide Advertiser

If you’ve read the previous The Rephaim books you won’t be disappointed in this conclusion. And if you haven’t: read them now because they’re awesome.

Books for a Delicate Eternity

 As with its three predecessors Shadows, Haze and Shimmer it was completely un-put-downable and I finished it within a day. Jam-packed with action, suspense, romance, classic Aussie humour, and an ending that tied together all the loose ends and rounded out the series perfectly.

All About UF

Officially experiencing major book hangover. I WANT MOOOORE. *cries* Hands down one of my all time favourite series.

YA Midnight Reads

This much-anticipated finale to the Rephaim series is an excellent conclusion, tying together all the ends and bringing the epic battle that I had hoped for.

Tea in the Treetops

I can’t offer enough praise for Burn and the Rephaim series, it has been an amazing ride and I am devastated it has come to an end!

Obsession With Books

The end of one jam packed, actiony, kick-arse, punch in the face YA series. It’s all over and now I’m sad because there are no more Rephaim books to look forward to. A great ending to a great series that won’t leave you disappointed.

    Hiiii! So after a second read through of this amazing series, I was thinking that you put a lot of serious hints that this story is not over!!! I thought the same thing when I first read it, and now I’m more convinced. I mean, what about the big war between heaven and hell??? How well does Jude do as the leader of, well, everybody? (I sure he’s totally fab, but that’s beside the point) What happens with the Fallen and the Rephaim? Like can they get along? Will Rafa and his father “throw down?” These are important questions!!!!! Ugh I just don’t want to let these characters go. Thank you so much for writing these books. I haven’t been able to find anything that will grab me this intensely since reading them the first time around. (I’m seriously obsessed, which is why I’m begging for a continuation :))

      Thank you! I always love it when people read the series a second time around (or more!) and enjoy it just as much. And yes, you raise important questions 🙂 I never say never…but for now you’ll need to imagine what happens next. I’m caught up in new stories and new characters, but the Rephaim are never far from my heart (or my daydreaming). Thank you for the message!

    Honestly I almost died at the ending of Haze. I baught all books at once so the cliff hanger doesn’t kill me. God! Its soo good. I am dying finish shimmer and start burn.

    1. paulaweston says:

      Hope you keep enjoying the series. 🙂

    Hey Paula! I just finished the whole series and…wow! Burn was so much more amazing than I ever could have hoped for!!! I’ve told loads of my friends about the series and they are absolutely hooked! Is there a teeny tiny possibility of a 5th book coming out? I just love the characters and want to know more about Gaby, Rafa, Daisy and Jude and how they they will all interact in their own way towards their respective fathers(especially Rafa;) )…If there if no more books though, that’s okay because the journey with all the characters has been amazing throughout these 4 brilliant books:)

    1. paulaweston says:

      Thank you! I don’t have any immediate plans to write a fifth book (I have something totally new coming out next year), but I never say never, because I do love those characters. 🙂 Thanks so much for reading and sharing the Rephaim series!

  4. Kirsten Lane says:

    Thanks so much, I’ll check it out!

    Hi Paula, my name is Kirsten and I’ve really enjoyed The Rephaim series. I’m currently on book 3 which will take me about 3 days to read as i am a fast reader and since I’m in high school i have other things to get done first. I live in the United States and want to know why your 4th book Burn isn’t being released until a year later than other countries? I don’t know if i can wait until June to read.

    Thank you,

    Kirsten

      Hi Kirsten,
      I’m glad you’re enjoying the series. 🙂 My books are published in different parts of the world by different publishers. Each publisher decides when it will release each book, based on its publishing schedule and marketing factors etc. I understand the frustration of having to wait longer (and wish it wasn’t so), but at least it’s only a few months between Shimmer and Burn. In Australia, the UK and other parts of the world there was at least a year wait between each book!
      I hope you keep enjoying the series, and that the wait for Burn is worth it.
      Paula

        Thank you so much for responding so quickly! I’m amazed you actually responded, and I must say you’ve been an inspiration to me in writing! I’ve always wanted to be a writer, but your books have kicked the writers block out of me.

        I hope you have a good night (or day, wherever you are at the moment).

        -Kirsten

    Dear Paula,
    I’m sorry but i have to know if Rafa and Gaby end up together because im scared they won’t end up together! 🙁

    Thankyou!!!

    1. paulaweston says:

      Hi Violet – you’ll have to read Burn to find out! 🙂 (Or some spoiler reviews if you’re really worried before you start.)

  7. erin1027 says:

    I absolutely love The Rephaim series! One of my absolute favorites! You truly are an amazing author! I can’t for Burn to be released in the united states! i am dying to find out what happens! Is burn the last book in the series?

About Me

I’m the author of the Rephaim series. The Undercurrent, a stand-alone speculative thriller set in near-future Australia, will be released by Text Publishing in August 2017.

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 Brisbane with my husband.

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.
