About the Book From Goodreads
Bethany Griffin continues the journey of Araby Worth in Dance of the Red Death—the sequel to her teen novel Masque of the Red Death.
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.
Let me start off saying i did really enjoy the book, but with that being said i still like the first book better. It true when people say “The first is always best”.
Dance of the Red Death is a lot darker then the first book, it goes more into the Red Death…and lets just say there is a LOT of death in this book. The book starts off from where it left off in Masque of the Red Death. Where they left the city city on a steam flying ship, when the city went to chaos. Life is pretty complicated for Araby, Especially with Will and Elliot. Not gonna get into those parts cause of Spoilers. But omg i am so Team Will( Even tho what he did to Araby, But you gotta do what you gotta do to save your family ). Elliot just seems so different in this book then the first, but i guess that’s understandable.
And omg the Ending to the book, just like WHY JUST FREAKING WHY? MY FREAKING APRIL! The ending will rip you’re heart out and piss you right off, and When i reached the last page i wanted to throw the book out the window, like i screamed “THAT WAS IT!? WTF” The Ending didn’t suck, It just sucked the way it ended.
I was so Happy( More like Jumping up and down Screaming) When i got this book in the mail. I couldn’t wait to read it. I just really Adore Bethany Griffin. And Masque of Red Death was just amazing.
If you love YA Steampunk, Dystopian and Science Fiction, The Masque of the Red Death Series is the Books for you.
