Hi Bidisha,

Lenoir disappeared. So he's still alive. :)
Naif was replenishing him with her blood. Enough for him to survive.

I had intended to write an epilogue, or another novel about them, but the opportunity didn't present itself.

Thanks for reading the books!

Story Update 2020

 


Yes I am still writing stories! You could be forgiven for thinking I’d stopped. Between a PhD and a new job, life has changed a lot. So here’s an update! Recently I started as Content Creator at a company called Performance Frontiers. They are an inspiring leadership development business grounded in the ideals of natural capitalism and whole systems thinking. I’m so enjoying this role, and the pe

"Interesting

Broadly imagined, not needlessly violent. Complex, yet not confused. Not just black and white, many grays. Would recommend reading it."
Sharp Shooter by Marianne Delacourt
"Fairly humorous

Pretty fun read with one exception. Not being fluent in Aussie or Perth speak fairly certain I missed some salient points of humor. I expect it was a big hit down under and would garner even more attention from us, the great unwashed o" Read more of this review »

"A fun read

Set in Australia, thisbook is a fun, light-hearted story about a woman who can see auras. She gets into troubles and always escapes serious harm. Not realistic ...just lots of fun!"

Marianne de Pierres, Burn Bright

“Ixion exists as an antidote to the rules and conventions of other places. We believe that indulging in pleasure will make better people. Self-denial and discipline and virtue are all myths invented to control you.”

“In Ixion music and party are our only beliefs. Darkness is our comfort. We have few rules but they are absolute. Your endocrine systems have been altered by changes to your hypothalamus. You no longer need to sleep or see sunlight.”
Marianne de Pierres, Burn Bright

“Everyone comes here for pleasure. Even if they think they don't. Embracing it is harder for some and they go mad before they truly accept it. Most of the places they cme from are founded on guilt and rules. The Ripers want us to break away from that - some wish to tear it from us while others are more subtle.”
Marianne de Pierres, Burn Bright

“Ixion exists as an antidote to the rules and conventions of other places. We believe that indulging in pleasure will make better people. Self-denial and discipline and virtue are all myths invented to control you.”
Marianne de Pierres, Burn Bright

“Rules? Ixion is supposed to be free of rules, yet it seems as strict as Grave in its own way and more...more dangerous.”
Marianne de Pierres, Burn Bright

“You slow. Is Dangerous." His tentacles curled down, gripping the ends of the wood. As they watched he slid off the crate and nudged it away. Underneath was a grate, filthy with slude. He plunged his tentacles into the gaps and pulled it aside. "There is drop.”
