What happens when the Ripers – Guardians of Ixion – decide you are too old to stay? So he’s still alive. Sadly, Burn Bright is currently only available in Australia and New Zealand, but hopefully Random House will give it a wider international release soon.

Almost all she came in contact with had something to add. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Like when Retra had Confession.

I don’t know if all their books are like this one or if it is an exception, but Burn Bright was such a fascinating read for me. While it’s a YA novel, it’s clearly a fantastic crossover that will appeal to adults as well. War just bun to break out. It may be a party nation, but Retra refuses to stand by and watch others be placed in a position of abuse and now becomes a target due to her actions.

If I happen to get it, and have no other books maruanne, I might read it. Come to mewhispers a voice in her head. What are the Night Creatures Retra can see in the shadows?

Ixion is an island ,arianne never-ending night known for it’s pleasure. And what happens to those who grow too old for Ixion? By Marianne de Pierres. The prospective love traingle is a huge turn off for me. I will admit that at first my expectations for this novel were low – a young adult book about ‘night creatures’ screamed some trashy ‘vegan vampire’ fiction.


A scifi-in-space-fantasy-monsters-vampires-and-strange-creatures-good-and-evil-beastly-but-gorgeous-guy-drugs-and-blood-thriller featuring an innocent but incredibly strong heroine surviving a non-stop party on an island of infinite darkness, endless pleasure and short life-spans.

Although pirrres struggled as I said, she did it with not much help from anyone. It’s truly original and you can completely tell the author loves her world and characters.

Retra only has one reason for being on Ixion: Burn Bright definitely commands your attention from page one as Marianne de Pierres takes you on a journey filled with bizarre twists, sinister settings, and uniquely subtle characters.

Burn Bright

It’s where young people go to run away from rules and to enjoy freedom. A place where desires are acted upon without care and every person burns bright with life. People want you to believe it’s one big non-stop party.
