I loved Masque of the Red Death when I read it earlier in the year and I am super excited for the second book to see what happens next! This week the US cover for Dance of the Red Death, book two was revealed and it's rather unique! It fits in so perfectly to the first cover and the colours look great together! I might have to buy the US edition just for the cover! Without further ado here it is:
Dance of the Red Death
Series: Masque of the Red Death #2
Release Date: 23rd April 2013
Publisher: US-Greenwillow, UK- Gollancz
Synopsis: The sequel to Masque of the Red Death, which Melissa Marr called, “Haunting and beautiful.” Araby Worth is poised either to save her city, or to abandon it. In a novel that embodies dark, sexy, tragic, and fearless, Bethany Griffin concludes her incredible, atmospheric reimagining of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic short story.
Araby Worth’s city is on fire. Her brother is dead. Her best friend could be soon. Her mother is a prisoner, her father is in hiding. And the two boys who stole her heart have both betrayed her. But Araby has found herself, and she is going to fight back. Inspired by one of Edgar Allan Poe’s most compelling stories, “The Masque of the Red Death,” Bethany Griffin has spun two sultry and intricate novels about a young woman who finds herself on the brink of despair but refuses to give in. Decadent masquerades, steamy stolen moments, and sweeping action are set in a city crumbling from neglect and tragedy. A city that seeps into your skin. Dance of the Red Death is the riveting conclusion to the dark and fascinating saga of an unforgettable heroine.
Oh my, doesn't it sound brilliant!!! I cannot wait to get my hands on it!
