Be safe, baby bat. Times are dangerous . . .

Be safe, baby bat. Times are dangerous . . .

Retra - now called Naif - has escaped from Ixion, the island of ever-night. She doesn't know if her friends on the island survived the battle between the Ripers and the rebels. But she does know that she must return home, behind the sealed walls of Grave, to find out why the Ripers have been seen there talking to the councillors. What links the two worlds? First she must convince Ruzalia to help her. The fierce pirate captain saves those who face terrible fates on Ixion, but that doesn't guarantee their gratitude. Instead, she faces a revolt - and Naif is caught in the middle.

Naif will need all her courage to survive. For Lenoir, who wants to keep her safe, for her friends Suki and Rollo, if they live, for Markes, who has secrets of his own, and for the new friends she will make on this journey.The fate of worlds depends on it.

The third book in The Night Creatures trilogy.


WOW! My mind has literally been blown, I just love these books! . . . With action and heart pounding suspense around every corner you'll be simply captivated by Naif/Retra's story. You'll be glued to every page, you'll be perched on the edge of your seat.


This second book in what is quickly becoming my favorite trilogy delivers an explosive storyline and darkishly delicious characters . . . Marianne de Pierres had me guessing the entire book.


The sequel to Burn Bright, Angel Arias, firmly cements Marianne de Pierres' reputation as one of the finest writers of young adult speculative fiction . . . Breath-taking, with wonderfully drawn scenes and dialogue, Angel Arias is a terrific sequel examining faith, friendship, exploitation and the abuse of hegemony in subtle and thought-provoking ways . . . This tale leaves you wanting more.


Atmospheric and intoxicating, I recommend it for fans of darker paranormals and dystopias.


Angel Arias offers another unpredictable, engaging and interesting plot, and the dark Gothic-like world that will still make readers want to devour more . . . Marianne de Pierres continues to surprise me with each and every book.


The second in the Burn Bright series, this book demonstrates why De Pierres is one of Australia’s best genre authors . . . This brilliant book is an example of why young adult novels often outsell adult novels.
