Everything is in ruins.
A devastating plague has decimated the population, and those who are left live in fear of catching it as the city crumbles around them.
So what does Araby Worth have to live for?
Nights in the Debauchery Club, beautiful dresses, glittery makeup . . . and tantalizing ways to forget it all.
But in the depths of the club—in the depths of her own despair—Araby will find more than oblivion. She will find Will, the terribly handsome proprietor of the club, and Elliott, the wickedly smart aristocrat. Neither is what he seems. Both have secrets. Everyone does.
And Araby may find not just something to live for, but something to fight for—no matter what it costs her
This was a cool book. There were some things I didn't like though, half of the things didn't keep me that interested in the book and the other half was pretty good, and there were some page turners in there.
I understand that she was very upset that she twin died but that vow was not something comprehensible. I didn't understand really, she could have done something else but how long did she think she could keep that vow? But Araby was a nice main character to read, she was strong but that little love triangle was horrible.
I didn't like Elliot at first, he just seemed like someone that would just be a minor character through the book, but I ended up really liking him at the end.
I couldn't stand what happened. I loved Will so much through the book, what he did in the ending broke my heart. I couldn't believe it, family comes first I know but if he really liked her he could have done something!
Overall, I was pretty bored in the beginning, it took me awhile to get into the book. I felt like Just skipping pages that seemed boring because it did feel dragged a little through it. There were some scenes that should have been left out of the book.
