Beneath the Crimson Willow

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

Beneath the Crimson Willow takes place in a fascinating fantasy world, with a strong and smart main teen character named Violet, who you can’t help but cheer for as she faces many challenges in this fast-paced mystery. The author really has a great imagination, perfect for young (and old) readers to explore. I really enjoyed it!

Beneath the Crimson Willows is the second installment in the Garden of Elsyn series. Yet, it reads quite nicely as a stand alone book! Read more about the first installment here: The Wilted Flower District


"Beneath the Crimson Willow jumps into the fantasy world of 17-year-old Violet Noone, as she and her family continue with their life on the run, fleeing from The Marked, a secret organization focused on revenge. One day Violet is approached by a mysterious stranger, and is blackmailed into trying to solve a brutal murder of a woman in the poisonous compound, Unelse. Violet discovers that there are religious, political, and corporate forces who might be at play -- or maybe it was just the person everyone always suspects: the woman’s husband, who was no stranger to the criminal scene. Pursuing each lead, Violet slips deeper into a world of conspiracy and lies, and learns she can trust no one. Beset by their own demons, her family is unable to support her, forcing Violet to accept unwelcome truths about herself and face challenges well beyond her years. Now, Violet is completely on her own. With her enemies closing in, she must unravel the mystery, retrieve the intelligence, and solve the murder. But can she do it before The Marked find her?"
"Violet faces a lot of challenges in Beneath the Crimson Willow, but she becomes a testament that the strongest steel is forged in the hottest fires. However, in the end, you are the only one responsible for your own happiness,” Niewood says. “I hope readers get inspired by Violet’s perseverance as she overcomes unthinkable obstacles in the strange, mysterious world she lives in."
