Goodreads synopsis:
It’s almost a year since Gaby Winters was in the car crash that killed her twin brother, Jude. Her body has healed in the sunshine of Pandanus Beach, but her grief is raw and constant. It doesn’t help that every night in her dreams she kills demons and other hell-spawn.

And then Rafa comes to town. Not only does he look exactly like the guy who’s been appearing in Gaby’s dreams—he claims a history with her brother that makes no sense. Gaby is forced to accept that what she thought she knew about herself and her life is only a shadow of the truth—and that the truth is more likely to be found in the shadows of her nightmares.

Who is Rafa? Who are the Rephaim? And most importantly, who can she trust?

Fast-paced and gripping, Shadows, the first book in the Rephaim series, is a standout paranormal romance for fans of Richelle Mead and Cassandra Clare.

While I was on holiday in the Lake District last week, I went into a bookstore in one of the towns we visited, and found a book called Haze, which I'd never heard of before. I read the synopsis and thought it sounded really good. Only after I'd scanned it into the Goodreads app did I realise it's actually the second in a series! Shadows is the first book, but unfortunately the shop didn't have it in, so it's on my list of books to eventually order into and buy from work. It sounds like a really good series that puts a unique spin on a well-loved genre. I'm definitely looking forward to it.

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)

Nice choice! I saw this book around before and it looks and sounds like a good read.
I hope you get it soon!

I did something similar except I picked up a book 4!!! In my defence, the blurb didn't suggest it was late in a series and there were no books mentioned on the inside pages! Still haven't found book 1...
