Brilliant storytelling. Riveting and unforgettable.
Lauren Kate, author of FALLEN
In Ixion, Marianne de Pierres has constructed the perfect metaphor for teenage anxiety: a foreign world loosed from all past certainties, inhabited by symbolically costumed cliques engaged in complex hostilities. Your worst fears lurk just off the poorly lit paths, and the only relief comes from the brief sleep of the petit nuit, or in surrendering yourself to the music that throbs through the clubs. Read BURN BRIGHT and feel a shiver of recognition, even as Ixion's strangeness casts its spell.
Margo Lanagan, author of TENDER MORSELS
To enter the endless night of Ixion is to enter a darkly glamorous world in which danger and pleasure dance to an intoxicating beat - as irresistible to us as it is to Retra.
Isobelle Carmody, author of THE OBERNEWTYN CHRONICLES
