The Final Masquerade by Ariana Nash is a dark fae tale full of suffering and longing...
The Final Masquerade is a truly beautiful piece of writing. There's a theatrical element in the rich descriptions and world building that make it easy to form that mental picture and keep the reader engrossed.
It's almost a disappointment that this is a standalone since there is so much that could be explored. I didn't want it to end.
Quite a few steamy scenes and not all with the main pairing. Please read the content warnings.
For Brice there are a lot of struggles. There are things that happen to him, that he does, that are dark and difficult to deal with, but Brice goes get a lovely but hard won HEA. He shows a serous amount of character growth.
Full of the trademark Nash morally grey characters, and that need for her characters to suffer for their love, but oh so worth it.
"Be my other half in all things. Be the light in my dark."
