Review - Angel arias by Marianne De Pierres W/ HUGE giveaway
Author: Marianne De Pierres
Release date: 3rd October 2011
Published by: Random House
Blurb: 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.
My Rating: A MUST READ!!
My Review: I was one of the lucky few who recieved an advance copy to review from the Publishing company Random House Australia (thank you Dorothy.) When I recieved it, I was jumping up and down in such excitement. After reading Burn Bright, I'd been looking forward to the next installment for awhile. Yay!!
WOW! My mind has literally been blown, I just love these books! First we were taken on such an out of this world adventure in Burn Bright. And now Marianne has done it again with another truly magnificent sequal in the Night Creatures series. Her creative writing style wisps you away into a world that we can only dream about.
Angel arias brings back our favourite characters, and introduces us to a few new and exciting characters. 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. You'll be left wanting more. It's an adventure you seriously don't want to miss, believe me! I finished this book within a few hours of reading, I just couldn't put it down and If I had to it killed me. Can't wait for the third installement Blaze Dark which is due for release sometime in 2012.
Burn Bright baby bats!
