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.

About the Book

In this twist on Edgar Allen Poe's gothic short story, a wealthy teenaged girl who can afford a special mask to protect her from the plague that decimated humanity in the mid-1800s, falls in love, becomes caught up in a conspiracy to overthrow an oppressive government, and faces the threat of a new plague.

About the Author

Bethany Griffin has always admired Edgar Allan Poe's short stories. ""The Masque of the Red Death,"" which this novel reimagines, is one of her favorites.

""I've always loved the amazing atmosphere Poe creates,"" she says. ""But 'The Masque of the Red Death' is one of his shortest stories. I wanted to know more. I wanted characters and their stories within the context of this devastating plague. And that's where this story originated."" Bethany Griffin lives with her family in Kentucky.

Editorial Reviews

?Bethany Griffin?s Masque of the Red Death is gorgeous, compelling, and achingly romantic.? (Suzanne Young, author of A NEED SO BEAUTIFUL)
