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.
Why I Can't WAIT for This Book: I think the cover (which is totally gorgeous) and the synopsis say it all. From Griffin's Website, Masque is a "...Post-Apocalyptic reimagining of Poe's gothic horror story of the same name..." It seems like such an awesome idea and it makes me kind of want to go read some Poe!
