5.0 out of 5 stars Best Ever April 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition

The cover is brilliant! The artwork for this series is what originally drew me to pursue getting a copy of Burn Bright. It represents a dark tale with a very strong, young female lead character. The artwork is beautiful and represents the feel and appeal of the story. All three covers are amazing, and I love the colors.


I couldn't be more proud of Naif, her character development throughout the series is a constant. With everything that is thrown at her and the determination and unending days of fighting, she never falters on what is in her heart and what she believes is true and right. We see many characters come and go throughout the series, several die and several stop in just for their purpose to leave the reader not knowing where their story ended up. But all have brought this series full circle and I don't think there could have been a better ending.


Naif is by far my favorite character, but there are so many that are dear to my heart that it seems unfair to name just the main character.

Lenoir, Liam!, Suki, the Uthers, all great characters.

Least Favourite

I of course have never been much fan of the Ripers, but that Cal! Man, talk about close-minded, she ruffles my feathers.


Jumping right into the story from book two we find Naif and her group making plans to re-enter Ixion. Who will be going, staying and what has to happen. With some dialogue to refresh the readers memory on where we left off in the last book.


Naif must find her brother and his group again to get all of the fighters on Ixion to rally together to fight the Ripers and Night Creatures.

Shine Light, the final book in The Night Creatures trilogy, is an unforgettable conclusion to an original and thrilling series.
Now that Naif has learned the shocking reasons behind why young people are sent to the dark island of Ixion, she returns to expose the truth and try and liberate them from their oppressors. Her mission is urgent as the badges, which all folk are given upon entering Ixion and which control life or death, are failing. While Naif has had her badge rescinded, there's her brother and others she cares for deeply who are at the whim of its force.
Urging all the different factions to unite and overthrow their enemy and embrace liberty, however, is no easy task. Sometimes, as Naif learns, the truth doesn't set you free, it merely complicates everything. Nonetheless, loyal and gutsy, she determines to fight the Ripers, release those they've enslaved through drugs, hedonism and wanton selfishness, and shine light into the darkest recesses of Ixion and beyond.
At the heart of Naif's deadly quest, is also a truth she must face: where does her loyalty really lie? With her fellow rebels and revellers or with the creature whom she loves so deeply, the enigmatic and sensual Lenoir?
Fast-paced and so beautifully and tautly written, this final instalment is a wild ride from start to finish. The elegance and economy of the prose means you're plucked out of your own reality and deposited firmly in the middle of Ixion, among its toxic politics and unravelling social structures. Darkness becomes an even more powerful metaphor in this novel, representing as it does, not only ignorance and the abuse of power, but the evil that lurks about and within.

3.0 out of 5 stars pretty good... November 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really liked this series, but the way it ended, not even having an epilogue to sum up what happened after the light returned, was rather disappointing. If there were another book to follow that'd be different, but ending the series with so many possibilities of what happened after ... Disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give this series a chance it's Awesome August 4, 2013
By Rhonda
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not my style of normal reading but I love this whole series sad to see it end. Its about a new world of dominance and control by fear then rebellion with a twist. All stemming around the strength and courage of youth it's a must read fast paced can't put down lots of excitement.

3.0 out of 5 stars Abrupt ending July 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got this free on amazon.
I'm not sure how I feel about that ending...very abrupt and left me feeling like there should be another book? Like the cliffiest of cliffhangers. That last sentence? Really? How could the entire series possibly end like that? It felt so unresolved. I was hoping for more resolution where Lenoir was concerned.
I really enjoyed the first book in the series, but the storyline definitely took a turn I wasn't expecting. Not necessarily bad - I still enjoyed the other-worldliness of it, and I liked witnessing Retra/Naif coming into her own. She started out rather quiet and timid, but grew stronger throughout the three books. All of the characters changed in some way, whether physical or character-driven.
