Masque of Red Death has many pros such as a very interesting plot and very good vocabulary for 7th and 8th grade levels and beyond. The characters are likeable at most but will anger you sometimes. There are some spelling errors but that is expected for ARCs and there was a scene where the main character , Araby, blacks out from drugs in which you don’t know what’s happening. I give this book personally 4.5 out of 5 stars due to some errors. I recommend this book to science fiction and romance lovers.
