The Rephaim Series by Paula Weston
The fourth and final book, Burn, was released in Australia on June 24, 2015. UK release will be August 6th, US & Canada release in 2016.
In Paula’s words: “It’s a supernatural contemporary fantasy… with strong Australian flavour. Fast paced, with a bit of an antagonistic romance through it. Lots of action, a reasonable amount of violence. The plot itself is about a girl who finds out she’s not who she thinks she is, who finds herself torn between two groups of people, accused of doing something she has no memory of doing. So there’s lots of exploration of identity – who she is and who she should trust. It’s about love and loyalty on every level.”
