The world, though, was brilliant! It was scarily real and completely genius!


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 around them.So what does Araby Worth have to live for?Nights in the Debauchery Club, beautiful dresses, glittery makeup . . . 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 is what he seems. Both have secrets. Everyone does.And Araby may find not just something to live for, but something to fight for—no matter what it costs her.

Bethany Griffinis the author of Masque of the Red Death. She's also a high school English teacher who prides herself on attracting creative misfits. And she's always admired Edgar Allan Poe. By reimagining his classic short story into a two-book saga, she says, "I wanted to add the things I most love to the dark, stifling atmosphere that Poe had created. I wanted to write a much longer story, complete with conspiracies and subplots, and add fascinating characters."Bethany Griffin lives with her family in Kentucky.
