Way back in December 2011, I read Burn Bright by Marianne de Pierres and thoroughly enjoyed it. I've wanted to read on, but getting just that book was a hassle and a half. Getting the others wasn't going to be an easy feat no matter how much I wanted to read them (and I still want to read them a LOT).
Now? Not so much. Because Burn Bright and the rest of the Night Creatures series will be available in ebook and paperback through Amazon WORLDWIDE very soon. As in, this month kind of soon. This also comes with new covers for each book in the series (a little sad because I LOVE the original Aussie covers, but this happens sometimes) and I'm happy to be able to show you the new covers for the series as a member of the Burn Bright VIP club!
First comes the new cover for the first book, Burn Bright:
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 . . .
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.
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?
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.
Then the cover for Angel Arias, the second book in the series (no jacket copy for this one in order to protect you from spoilers):
And finally, the new cover for Shine Light, the final book of the series (once again, no jacket copy in order to stop spoilers from happening):
For comparison, here are the three original covers:
So what do you think? I didn't care much for the new covers when they first popped into my inbox, but I've got to admit, they're growing on me. I'll always be fond of the Aussie covers, though. Very unique and eye-grabbing and beautiful. Either way, I'm happy more readers will be able to have access to the series soon. Australia is hoarding too many good books!
