With Anna-Marie McLemore's signature lush prose, Dark and Deepest Red pairs the forbidding magic of a fairy tale with a modern story of passion and betrayal.
Summer, 1518. A strange sickness sweeps through Strasbourg: women dance in the streets, some until they fall down dead. As rumors of witchcraft spread, suspicion turns toward Lavinia and her family, and Lavinia may have to do the unimaginable to save herself and everyone she loves.
Five centuries later, a pair of red shoes seal to Rosella Oliva’s feet, making her dance uncontrollably. They draw her toward a boy who knows the dancing fever’s history better than anyone: Emil, whose family was blamed for the fever 500 years ago. But there’s more to what happened in 1518 than even Emil knows, and discovering the truth may decide whether Rosella survives the red shoes.

McLemore at their best
All of Anna-Marie McLemore’s books are amazing magical realism, own voices, with latinx & queer characters. This work did not disappoint!
Set in dual timelines, Dark & Deepest red delves into identity, love, and sacrifice.
- Roy Sachleben
Elegant and satisfying, though not really for me
The performance was first rate and nothing better can I say about it.
the story is fascinating but ultimately misses a bit off the mark for me. the resolution is a little to neat and tidy in both timelines. the protagonists lose nothing and gain everything. but the wordcraft is enchanting. the author has a tremendous gift.
