Pretty dark for YA fantasy (Margo Lanagan dark), but refreshingly different.Excellent import from Finland and a lovely translation.

4.5 stars This book starts off slow and descriptive, but then becomes utterly harrowing. I loved the clear and innocent voice of Maresi, who narrates the story, giving it a highly personal feel. It is an emotionally stirring book, which highlights the fears and strengths of the women in the story, reminding me in its feel of parts of The Mists of Avalon. Highly recommended.

I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher. This in no way impacted on my view.I first heard about this book through some bloggers via Twitter. Because I trust their judgement on books, I decided to try and request a copy, and was lucky enough to receive one. I had next to no knowledge what the book was actually about, other than the fact this was it's first time being published in English, rather than its native Finnish. Most of reviews I've since seen have been extremely complimentar [...]

3.5 starsI don't read much YA but I felt like I needed a bit of a palate cleanser and I loved the premise of this book. For me, it wasn't quite the "thrilling, suspenseful and gloriously feminist" book that the blurb promised, but it was a diverting enough read. I enjoyed the mythology of the Mother/Maiden/Crone and the descriptions of abbey life, as well as the emphasis on female friendship and co-operation, but I felt that there wasn't really quite enough character development. The language fe [...]

2.5 stars - I was disappointed in this. It had a ton of potential. I loved the premise of a safe island for women/girls only who were abused or damaged in some way and needed to heal. This should have a short story there just wasn't enough here to make a novel. It is the first in a series but I doubt it's one I will continue to read.

What an enchanting read! Everyone was telling me that it had fairytale vibes, and I totally agree! It's perfect if you want to experience the same kind of vibes from the His Fair Assassin trilogy, or something like The Sin Eater's Daughter.

DNF on page 195I went into this book completely blind. I had seen some talk on Twitter about it and I was fairly excited about it. Maresi is a bland character. She is loyal to the Abbey and the sisters who live/work there, but there isn't much more I can say about her. There are a lot a lot a lot of characters and some are mentioned without ever being talked about again. As for the plot, it was soooooooo slooooooow. There isn't any sort of conflict until it's almost over and even that seemed str [...]

"There’s this habit in this book of making all men look powerful and strong but also mean and sexist and all women look pure, innocent and fragile. And yes, the book is written mostly with the intention to show us how women are strong and capable of doing just as much as men but the world is not always this or that, positive and negative, there’s so much to an individual than just evil or just good."() Read more of my review on my blog post - nomuhjournal.wordpress/20Follow my blog for book [...]

5 Words: Faith, hope, learning, magic, friendship.Hands down the best fantasy I have read in a long time.I think this is one of those books where you either love it or feel a bit Meh after reading. I definitely loved it, but I can see why some people wouldn't like it.This was a very subtle fantasy - if not for the magic and technology it could almost have been set now, in this world. There was no cookie-cutter plot with a Mary Sue main character. Instead there was complex plot with mixed yet nat [...]

I feel like cult books are really on trend at the moment! This definitely had the vibes of 'Soundless' by Richelle Mead and 'Only Ever Yours' by Louise O'Neill. It's an odd mixture, but one I can get behind!

detalizēti uzbūvēta pasaule, izteikta ar brīnišķīgi veidotu valodu. fantāzijās radīta pasaule, kura šķietami norāda mazliet arī uz to, kurā dzīvojam. šis bija jaudīgi. tik ļoti, ka trūkst pat sakāmā.

Review taken from my blog, SugarQuills.I was sent Maresi by the publisher for an honest review.I loved loved loved Maresi as soon as I started reading it because the protagonist is so damn loveable. Maresi is told from the first-person perspective of little ball of fluff, Maresi, a young girl living at the Red Abbey, which is a female-only island. Male merchants are allowed near the island if they are delivering goods or if they are buying goods produced by the sisters, but they never actually c [...]

The first book in a YA trilogy, this book about a society of women kicked ass. The Red Abbey offers refuge to girls who have been abused or need food and shelter. They can learn to read, learn medicine, farming and sisterhood. It is a sacred and powerful place. So what happens when evil, barbaric men show up, looking for the daughter who escaped her father's cruelty? I'm not going to tell you! You'll have to read it for yourself. I can't wait until the next book.

Ļoti nopietns YA, drīzāk meditatīvs fantāzijas trilleris jaunām un vecām sievietēm.Brīnišķīga valoda, bagātīga pasaule. Pietiekami daudz pārdomu par sievietes būtību - ne par daudz, ne par maz.

2.5 starsTranslated from the Swedish original. First in a series of three.This was a very short read, which may be why I persisted, but I did finish thinking “What was the point of it?”I like dystopia, I like powerful female characters, I like Old World / otherworld stories. This sat uneasily with me.I did like it more at the start – a young girl is telling us her story of when a new girl comes to her island sanctuary and trouble follows her. The trouble (in the form of men) comes in a rat [...]

Ooo, I thought this was really different and interesting. It reminded me (in feel) of The Wickerman and The Handmaid's Tale.It's set on an island that's only inhabited by women - and these women take in young girls who may have been abused or just find themselves there and get taken in. There's a lot of world building and a lot about their day to day life - cooking, herbalism, reading, dying clothes with dye taken from snails - and I really loved all of that. And then there's also this underlyin [...]

It is hard to believe first hand that Maresi’s world is one of Fantasy, as it is still reminiscent of our world today at least for some countries.Welcome to the Red Abbey, a sanctuary built by 8 women, sisters fleeing from persecution far away from a world where education is awarded only to men, and where their fate is not theirs to master.Any new novice coming to the Red Abbey, will not only be granted protection, but will also share into the teachings of an ancient and sacred magic now long [...]

3.5I really enjoyed Maresi and I loved the concept of a safe haven island for battered, unwelcome, and needy girls where they are taught valuable skills to survive in a world that is cruel to them. I loved it so much that I wish Turtschaninoff took the pains to expand it into a longer narrative. While enjoyable, Maresi is short and simplistic, so a lot of it - especially the world building, character development, and exposition felt summarized and at times told more than it showed while only hal [...]

Gosh, this is a hard one to review. I liked the start, and the whole concept, but then the story took forever to take off, and the eventual action was predictable and well, kind of boring. Awks. Anywho, I generally don't have much to say about this one except for how slow and boring it was. It was simple, I was bored, but it's done and I can move on. Two stars.

Brutal and beautiful, MARESI walks the knife edge so thrillingly I read it in one sitting. Embued with myth, wonder, and told with a dazzling, compelling ferocity. I can hardly wait for the next instalment.

A very quick read, but one that definitely took me by surprise with its depth and power. I have so many beautiful contradictions swirling in my mind after just finishing this, and it feels really inspiring. I am very much looking forward to reading Turtschaninoff's other works as well.

Dieses Buch war phantastisch!Der unschuldige Schreibstil und die liebevollen Charaktere haben mir sehr gefallen. Ebenso die Idylle der Insel, nach der man sich manchmal nur sehnen kann. Faszinierend und besonders spannend empfand ich die Göttin, welche mehrere Gesichter inne hat und durch ihre Dienerinnen praktisch wirkt. Die Macht, die von ihr ausgeht, war beeindruckend. Ich bin gespannt wie Maresis Geschichte weiter geht!

Good worldbuilding and wonderful sisterhood. The beginning was slow and consisted mostly of introductions to the character and to the Island. The ending felt rushed. I do like this book but I think the sequel/prequel Naondel is better.

Oh my god this book is amazing. It has a classic feel to it, in the vein of writers like Le Guin, McKillip, Pattou, McKinley, etc. The writing and action are spare but lovely, and it's justahetty wonderful.
