Cover Crazy #4

Yet another Cover Crazy, Hosted by The Book Worms.

Burn Bright by Marianne de Pierres

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 . . .

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 love, love, LOVE this cover! It's sort of creepy, but definitely makes me to want to buy this one!

I love this cover because :
* Just LOVE!!!! the harlequin-thingy
* Extremely simple cover, but is still unique. I've seen millions of covers that has women in it, and usually I just skip them thinking "uu, another gothic chick on the cover, how original.....", but this really is different.

* The title of the book is disturbing. Yeah, it pops out, but too much. And I love pink, usually, but not in this situation.

I think this cover is really intriguing. I agree that the title doesn't seem to fit well with the rest of the cover. I just don't think pink was a great color choice.
