Waiting on Wednesday: Burn Bright

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine. The idea behind this meme is to highlight up and coming releases that we just can't wait to read.

And boy did I stumble upon a fabulous sounding book this week. I'm so excited for this one, I'm practically fumbling my way through this post (Typing way too fast for my own good - let's hope I don't make any spelling mistakes in the process).


Anyway, this week's WoW pick is Burn Bright by Marianne de Pierres. I love how dark, romantic and creepy it sounds and I simply adore the cover too.

Here's some more info about the book: 

Burn Bright by Marianne de Pierres
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

I absolutely cannot wait to read this. I want. I want. I want. (Ok, I'll stop that now. *grins*)

What's on your WoW list this week?

Ahh...I saw this rather weird story elsewhere. Sounds like a lot is going on here. Thanks. This is different.

Woohoo!! I am also waiting for this book! Her face is sorta painted like a jesters make up....you can't go wrong with a cover like that!

Plus I was just thinking about Assassins Creed, and there was this one part in the old game where he had to do something at a fair, and there was jesters there....

sorry about that rambling, I'm still in video game mode....*hangs head*



Check out my WoW :D
