Itching for a new feminist read to kick off the new year? Look no further! Just one year after Maria Turtschaninoff’s unforgettable Maresi landed stateside, the thrilling prequel is headed your way. Naondel lands on shelves January 9 and goes back to establish the world of the trilogy, telling the story of the First Sisters—the founders of the female utopia the Red Abbey.
Imprisoned in a harem by a dangerous man with a dark magic that grants him power over life and death, the First Sisters must overcome their mistrust of one another in order to escape. But they can only do so at a great cost, both for those who leave and for those left behind. Told in alternating points of view, this novel is a vivid, riveting look at a world of oppression and exploitation, the mirror opposite of the idyllic Red Abbey.
