It's the Carnevale of 1750 and Venice's ballrooms, theatres, palazzos and squares are filled with delicious gossip, devilish fun and dangerous games. In this glittering masked world, everyone has a secret...

Set in an age of decadence made famous by Casanova, Masquerade uncovers the secrets of seven teens, from the highest aristocrat to the lowest servant – their dreams, desires, loves, loyalties ... and betrayals.

All the world's a stage. Let the show begin.

This is Philippa and Angelya’s joint audio review of Masquerade. It’s an excerpt from Episode 11 of the Tea in the Treetops podcast, recorded on August 5, 2014. To listen to the full episode, click here.

Masquerade reminded us of a Shakespearean comedy. We loved the confusion, the costumes and the characters, and all the amazing detail about Carnevale and life in Venice at the time. It’s one of our favourite reads of this year for sure!

Angelya’s rating: five-stars

Philippa’s rating: four-stars

Anni lives in Brisbane, Australia with her young family. She loves everything fantasy and science fiction and believes sleep is really very underrated.
