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.
Thoughts:I have been waiting for a book like this for forever! I don’t even know where to begin I just loved this! It was creepy, Gothic, dark, icky, depressing, and just all out amazing.
Set in a time where a plaque like disease has almost wiped out the humans Abray lives the life that most don’t. She has a porcelain mask that helps protect her from the germs that cause this disease. When her best friend is taken she is asked to help find her and help in a rebellion against the evil Prince. With no other alternatives she gives her trust to Elliot and so starts her journey to uncovering many many truths that she never saw coming.
I have to say this book was right up my alley. I love a good story that has twists and boy oh boy this one delivers. At one point my mouth actually dropped because I never saw that punch coming! It was brilliant. I am really at a loss for words with this one because it was just that good. My review will never do the book justice. Please pick this book up you won’t regret it at all! I give the author major credit for writing such a depressing book but making it so intricate and detailed that the reader just wants to hope for the best in every situation.
