#1 in Masque of the Red Death series
Kindle Edition, 336 pages
Published April 24th 2012 by Greenwillow Books
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.
I eyed this book for a long while - shamelessly loving the cover alone. If I read the synopsis, I didn't remember, so I was excited to pick up a book with a plague and a little steampunk in there. It's been a week since I finished and I read it so quickly that I didn't write down notes. :)
Araby was a very interesting character and I'm curious to see how she will change and grow in the next book.
For the record...totally Team Will.
