Description

Desire is contagious A devastating plague has decimated thepopulation, 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, Araby will find more than oblivion. She will find Will, the terribly handsome proprietor of the club, and Elliott, the wickedly smart aristocrat. 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.show more

Our customer reviews

MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH bored me to tears. Everything was grim and gloomy. It frustrated me so much that I felt like I wanted to strangle myself while reading it. The story failed to hook me and I couldnâ??t really connect with the characters. I find it hard to sympathize with Araby. I get it that she feels guilty about her twin brotherâ??s death and she somehow blames herself for it. But I think the way she repents is unnecessary. Itâ??s self-destructive and in my own opinion, a rather stupid way to honor Finnâ??s memory. Sheâ??s also detached from everything and that did not help me to connect with the story since itâ??s told from Arabyâ??s perspective. As for the other characters, I canâ??t decide whether to pity or hate Elliott. Heâ??s mysterious and sinister, but heâ??s actually the most tolerable character for me. Will lacks the charm to really capture my attention. Sure, heâ??s described as gorgeous and kind (according to Araby) but he came across as plain and boring. Again, I blame that on the fact that Araby is the one telling the story. Frankly, I got so little from the story that I couldnâ??t really tell where itâ??s going. Elliottâ??s rebellion is so downplayed that I wasnâ??t sure itâ??s happening at all. Prince Prosperoâ??s motives are also unclear. Another mystery is Arabyâ??s father. Where does he fit in all this? And why did Elliott take interest in Araby aside from the fact that sheâ??s the daughter of the scientist who supposedly saved humanity from the plague? MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH confused me so much and left me with so many questions I wasnâ??t sure Iâ??d care to know the answers anymore. Iâ??m not really looking forward to the next book.show more
