Waiting on Wednesday: Burn Bright

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by
that spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating!

This week I am waiting for:

Into a world of wild secrets and deadly pleasures comes a girl whose innocence may be her greatest strength.

In Ixion music and party are our only beliefs. Darkness is our comfort. We have few rules but they are absolute . . .

Retra doesn’t want to go to Ixion, the island of ever-night, ever-youth and never-sleep. Retra is a Seal – sealed minds, sealed community. She doesn’t crave parties and pleasure, experience and freedom.

But her brother Joel left for Ixion two years ago, and Retra is determined to find him. Braving the intense pain of her obedience strip to escape the only home she’s ever known, Retra stows away on the barge that will take her to her brother.

When she can’t find Joel, Retra finds herself drawn deeper into the intoxicating world of Ixion. Come to me, whispers a voice in her head. Who are the Ripers, the mysterious guardians of Ixion? What are the Night Creatures Retra can see in the shadows? And what happens to those who grow too old for Ixion?

Retra will find that Ixion has its pleasures, but its secrets are deadly. Will friendship, and the creation of an eternal bond with a Riper, be enough to save her from the darkness?

Listen well, baby bats. Burn bright, but do not stray from the paths. Remember, when you live in a place of darkness you also live with creatures of the dark.

What are you waiting for?

Sounds like there is so much going on in this book! A whole lot of conflict...and conflict is good! Nice pick. Thanks for dropping by earlier.

Joel seems like such a plain name when you look at the others, doesn't it? :P

As for the book, hmmmm, I'm not sure. The jury is still out on this one. Hahaha.

Jessica @ a GREAT read said...

Sounds like a complicated book, yet still holds promise!

Not to step all over you Peep, but I think Joel is a good name! Yeah, it is a little plain but if his character is totally dynamic than the name will somehow fit. It's weird, but until you know the character you don't realize how much their name fits them. When I read a book where the main man was named Johnny, I was like seriously? But now, Johnny is freaking amazing! And hot!!

Here's my WoW
