In this gothic fantasy retelling of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Masque of the Red Death” with a bloody twist, the author of The Poison Season gives us a dual-POV story set in a plague-ravaged world about a commoner posing as a princess, a destitute gentleman posing as a prince, and the web of lies they must navigate to defeat the monsters coming for them both.
The bloody plague is over, and the survivors are finally safe…or so they think. Princess Imogen is living a protected life at the castle on borrowed time. The illusion of order is fading, and she must escape before the fast-dwindling rations run out and all hell is unleashed. Now-destitute Nico Mott wouldn’t have survived the aftermath of the plague if not for the generosity of Lord Crane. But does owing Lord Crane his life mean he owes him his silence? When Lord Crane sends Nico to search for more plague survivors in the castle, Nico collides with a princess who has her own reasons for wanting to break out—into a world where fresh horrors lie in wait.
