Waiting on Wednesday (13)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine.
Dance of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin
From Goodreads:
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.

I completely fell in love with Masque of the Red Death when I first read it. (Remember that time I proposed marriage to it in my ramble? That time was...weird. But awesome.) So of course I'm dying to get my hands on the sequel!

Aren't the covers gorgeous?! These books are going to look so pretty sitting next to each other on my bookshelf. :D
