From Goodreads:
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.

Night Creatures is a series I have had on my shelf for what feels like forever. I read the first book, Burn Bright, around six years ago and really enjoyed it. It was strange and dark and just a bit different from anything else I had ever read. I don't now why I didn't continue with the series but something just stopped me from continuing.

Recently, I've been on a series catch-up challenge and so finally picked up Angel Arias. I really wish I could say that I loved it... I really wanted to love it. But I just... didn't. It was slow and boring. I found myself not really caring about what was happening and decided to make the sad decision to DNF this series. I really wish I had liked this one as much as the first but it was just too slow for my liking.

If you like unique and interesting books and don't mind a slow paced book then I recommend this series, but if you're like me and get bored easily, give this one a miss.
