Arden Reads

Dark and Deepest Red
by Anna-Marie McLemore

This latest novel from author Anna-Marie McLemore, follows two timelines more than 500 years apart.

In Strasburg during 1518, a dancing fever broke out and Lavinia (Lala) Blau’s family was blamed for it. Women dance through the streets until they collapse, and magic and witchcraft is at its center.

500 years later, a town's annual “glimmer” (an enchanted haze that spreads through the town and creates miracles) brings with it a more morbid curse. Rosella Olivia dances through the streets and Emil—a descendent of Lala’s family—must recover the secrets of his heritage to save Rosella.
