“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.”
The characters of the book are awesome! I love that each character in the story an important part in each other lives. There driven to survive and to do whatever it takes. I really adored Will. I think his back story really gave his character much more emotion! Will is that guy that always does the right things even in the toughest times. Araby is a different girl. I really loved her fresh outlook on things and most of all her thoughts.
The love interest in this book is great! Once you get to knows both guys, it’s easy to fall in love with them. Though, I am leaning to one that I LOVE! What I like about this love interest is how uniquely different both guys are. They are like literally two different types of guys. I love that each of them of strong in who they are and determined to save those they love.
Masque of Red Death is an engaging story from the very first page. Quick to capture you with a world that has been ravish by disease, you will fall in a quick fever reading it. Masque of Red Death is a stirring, plot driven book that delivers the fear of an apocalyptic world.
I give it 4 BITES!
