Today, we are delighted to be kicking off our May Book of the Month feature for Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin — a stunning and seductive re-imagining of the short story by Edgar Allan Poe.
To celebrate, we bring you a brand-new desktop wallpaper calendar for the month, plus keep reading for more about the book, which is in stores now. Stay tuned all month long for a great contest, exclusive features from Bethany herself, and plenty of Poe!
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.
