Wishlist Wednesday: Burn Bright

Burn Bright by Marianne de Pierres
Dystopia/Sci-fi, 316 pages
March 1st 2011 by Random House Australia

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've had this on my wishlist for awhile, and I think I'll have it on my wishlist for awhile to come. Why? It's only available in Australia. (And y'all, books from Australia are 'spensive!).   Anyhow, it sounds amazing and I've read some incredible reviews from people I trust, so I'm fairly confident that if I ever do get my hands on it, I'm gonna like it.
And just look at the effing cover.

What's on your wishlist?


  1. It's an amazing book. I vouch for it.

  2. I've heard of this from Australian bloggers, and a lot of them seem to really like it. But I wouldn't know how to get my hands on it either. Maybe you could borrow it or swap for it from another blogger...?

  3. I downloaded this one off of megaupload a couple of months ago. I need to get to it soon!

  4. I discovered this one a few weeks ago and wish it was available here in the states!


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
