Review: Haze by Paula Weston
The minute I finished reading Shadows I wanted to read Haze, but I had torturous wait of having to wait for a year for Haze to be published. The minute I was able to make a start on Haze I dove straight in.
I love how easy it is to fall back into the world Paula has created, and I enjoyed getting to see Gaby, Rafe, Maggie and Jason again. When I began reading Haze I had forgotten about how action packed it is, and how much can happen in the space of a few hours, travelling all over the world by shifting, fighting....a lot, it is literally only a week since Gabby found out about being a Rephaim yet so much has transpired, yet it doesn't feel rushed at all. Everything that has happened is relevant to the plot and what is going on, finding Jude, avoiding the other Rephaim, keeping Maggie safe, but it only adds to the tension and nervous energy.
Haze was an unputdownable read and I enjoyed every single page of it. Seeing the old gang together again and making compromises to work together, and be around each other without the threat of violence was interesting to see. Yes there was tension, and antagonisation between a few of the characters, but they did manage not to kill each other, and also offered some great one liners.
I don't want to say too much about what happens in Haze, there was some surprising events that I didn't expect and events that I have been looking forward to. Things were revealed that added to the mystery, and we get to see a few old faces from Shadows that force Gaby to make tough decisions.
Like I said before, I loved every single page of Haze and I really need to have the next book in my hands now. Paula has once again managed to draw me into the world she has created and leave me wanting more.
