Masks is the first and only novel (so far) written entirely from the perspective of Lord Mircea. Granted, this entire novel is also set before he became a lord. This is the tale of how he learned to be a proper political vampire.
Originally this was supposed to be a novella, but it ended up growing and growing until it became the novel it is today. It’s absolutely perfect for those that adore Mircea, and wouldn’t mind seeing a whole lot more of him.
Masks is numbered at 6.5 in the series, and you should probably read it at that time. Not because there will be spoilers – it’s set far back in Mircea’s past, after all – but because that’ll be the moment when you’ll be the readiest to learn about our leading character. Or at least, that is how it worked for me.
Because I’m doing a reread with a group of people (the Karen Chance Street Team – message me if you want to know more about it) I’m also going to include the discussion prompts we’ve been using. That will be at the end of the review, so if you’re curious, check it out.
