Madeline awakes in a coffin. She was put there by her own twin brother. How did it come to this? In short non-chronological chapters, Bethany Griffin masterfully spins a haunting and powerful tale of a tragic heroine and the curse on the Usher family. The house itself is alive around Madeline, and it will never let her escape, driving her to the madness just as it has all of her ancestors. But she won't let it have her brother Roderick. She'll do everything in her power to save him—and try to save herself—even if it means bringing the house down around them.
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.
In a smoldering city full of death and danger, a 17-year-old girl could be the salvation --- or the destruction --- of the entire human race...and of two boys’ hearts. MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH is the beginning of a two-book sequence that reimagines Edgar Allan Poe’s gothic story.
