Review quote

The world within Dance of the Red Death is frighteningly realistic, nevertheless not without hope. Bethany Griffin captures the fear, the quest for survival and the disintegration of values brilliantly through powerfully descriptive writing. Dance of the Red Death provides a stunning conclusion to Araby's story. -

Dance of the Red Death is a brilliant conclusion that I could not bear to put down! Action and mystery riddled on every page, with romance on the side to make the story that much more interesting. I'm anxious to see what Bethany Griffin may have for us next! -

Because I absolutely loved Masque of the Red Death, Dance of the Red Death had some big shoes to fill. I knew this book was going to focus more on the revolution and wasn't sure I could love it as much as I had loved book 1. But once it really got going, it had me in its grip and I could not stop reading. I stayed up until 5am to finish it last night and it was worth every wink of missed sleep. - GoodReads

Absolutely breathtaking end to the series, so much adventure and drama...dark, beautiful and cunning. I adored the masquerade ball scenes, because it really brought [Edgar Allan] Poe's original story to life. Araby Worth is the best kind of heroine - flawed, but beautifully so. - GoodReads
