In Dance of the Red Death, Araby’s world is in shambles—betrayal, death, disease, and evil forces surround her. She has no one to trust. But she finds herself and discovers that she will fight for the people she loves, and for her city.

Her revenge will take place at the menacing masked ball, though it could destroy her and everyone she loves…or it could turn her into a hero.

With a nod to Edgar Allan Poe, Bethany Griffin concludes her tragic and mysterious Red Death series with a heroine that young adult readers will never forget.

Masque of the Red Dance was definitely one of the few YA with a love triangle that’s actually not blatantly obvious so I’d like to see how that works out. Also, more details on the crazy virus please! I also didn’t realize this series would only be a duology, but that’s okay, I’m excited to see how it ends.
