Character Interview with Naif + Giveaway: Angel Arias by Marianne de Pierres

Hi everyone! Today, I have Naif, a very intriguing girl from the awesome story world of Burn Bright, Angel Arias and Shine Light for a short interview.


Can you tell us about yourself?

My name is Retra-- no my name is Naif. I used to live in a place called Grave but now I have no home.

You must be new to Ixion. Here we don’t talk about the past – only the present. My friend Suki might tell you about her life though. She is the only one who dares to reminisce.

What do you think of the present world?

I think that the Riper’s are dangerous, and that you should be careful asking so many questions. They don’t like curious young ones. They want you to laugh and enjoy yourself but they don’t want you to think.

What was the first thing you did when you got here?

I was a baby bat like you. I went to Vank and learned the ways of the island. Charlonge showed me my locker and where to eat. She warned me not to stray from the paths.

If you lived in our time, who would you be? What would you do?

I’m not sure I can imagine such a thing. You speak of technologies I can’t fathom. But to answer your question as best I can … I would be the serious one. The friend who worries and takes responsibility.
  
If you could have three wishes, what would you wish for? Why?

I’d wish …

To free Ixion from the dark so all its secrets can be told.
To change Grave so that the Elders no longer made all the decisions. So my home can become a better place to live.
For Lenoir not to be a Riper because I … just because …

Giveaway: Angel Arias by Marianne de Pierres

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.

  13. i would try to make it so the elders could no longer make all the decisions. i think that alone could be causing a lot of issues. more people should be able to have a say in how things are done.
