Title: Masque of the Red Death
Author: Bethany Griffin
Publisher: Harper Collins
Release Date: April 24, 2012
Everything is in ruins.
A devastating plague has decimated the population. And those who are left live in fear of catching it as the city crumbles to pieces around them.
So what does Araby Worth have to live for?
Nights in the Debauchery Club, beautiful dresses, glittery make-up . . . and tantalizing ways to forget it all.
But in the depths of the club—in the depths of her own despair—Araby will find more than oblivion. She will find Will, the terribly handsome proprietor of the club. And Elliott, the wickedly smart aristocrat. Neither boy is what he seems. Both have secrets. Everyone does.
And Araby may find something not just to live for, but to fight for—no matter what it costs her. (via Goodreads)
Let me first say that I absolutely love Edgar Allen Poe. If this book is anywhere near as dark or gruesome as the original short story, I am going to be over the moon. I have been squirmy-excited about this since I first caught wind of its existence. Yes, there is going to be the love triangle business happening, but I'll allow it if the writing and world-building is good. *winks*
