Bethany Griffin is the author of Masque of the Red Death and Dance of the Red Death, a two-book saga that reimagines another of Edgar Allan Poe's classic stories. She lives in Kentucky, in a house that is just a house . . . as far as she knows.
I liked Araby quite a bit by the end of the story and I really felt very sorry for her.
Don't get me wrong, I really liked both of the guys and cared about what happened to them in the story, but the romances just didn't feel genuine to me.
If you like your dystopian fiction dark and with a steampunk twist then you're going to love The Masque of the Red Death.
It took me a little while to get into the book, but once I did, I really enjoyed it. It is a different read with the classic drama, love, and adventure.Published 1 month ago by Carrie Mackie
