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 -- Kiran Millwood-Hargrave (author of The Girl of Ink and Stars) Maresi stands out for its startling originality, and for the frightening plausibility of the dangerous world it creates Rebecca Hawkes, Telegraph Combines a flavour of The Handmaid's Tale with bursts of excitement reminiscent of Harry Potter's magic duels Observer Turtschaninoff weaves a hypnotic spell... at once contemporary and timeless Guardian A haunting fable -- Suzy Feay Financial Times Should appeal to fans of Ursula Le Guin... A lucid, layered, deeply engaging story Metro This dark, deceptively simple story is a great addition to the growing feminist fantasy genre Scotsman Dark, powerful and original... it really stands out in a very crowded YA marketplace. Thrilling, suspenseful and gloriously feminist The Bookseller Turtschaninoff creates an original fantasy world, and her parable of sisterhood and bravery will enthral readers Lovereading4kids Beautifully written... Maresi has a touch of Katniss about her, and although the target market is different, female lovers of dystopian fantasy adventures will enjoy the journey The School Librarian A spell-binding feminist fantasy that feels very timely and yet utterly timeless -- SF Said Booktrust, Best Teen Books of 2016 Fantasy and magic blend fluidly in the deeply feminist world... the message is clear: knowledge isn't just power, it can save lives Publishers Weekly Turtschaninoff puts traditional elements of female magic to effective dramatic use, especially in the climactic (and climatic) conflict between Jai's father and the Sisters. But what's more impressive about this fantasy is the subtlety with which the serenity of the island and its way of life is established - through the calls of birds, the sounds of the lapping sea, the smoothness of driftwood The Horn Book Full of courage. Dark, brave and so gripping you will read it in one sitting Laura Dockrill A poignant, slow-burning fantasy Taran Matharu, author of the Summoner fantasy series A beautifully painted, fantastical setting like no other; this story will resonate with me for a long time Ben Alderson, booktuber Atmospheric, immersive and definitely original, Maresi has a quiet urgent magic that makes her story powerful, poignant and memorable For Books' Sake A few times in a life time, a book comes along that wraps you completely in its world and its characters. Wildly imaginative and vivd and filled with wonders... this book makes me proud to be a woman Casey Daveron, booktuber (Casey Ann Books) It's rare to find a YA fantasy with such polished writing, and almost impossible to find a YA title so committed to a sympathetic portrayal of a matriarchy... Utterly satisfying and completely different from standard YA fantasy, this Finnish import seems primed to win over American readers Booklist (starred review) Maresi is a tale of sisterhood, survival and fighting against the odds that will capture the hearts of both teen and adult feminists alike and will leave you feeling extremely empowered... I think it's a very special book and one that deserves lots and lots of attention Lucy Powrie, booktuber (Queen of Contemporary) Maresi is an incredible book... if you like Louise O'Neill's Only Ever Yours, you'll love this. Fantastically original... [and] a very important read Amber Kirk-Ford, booktuber (The Mile Long Bookshelf) Absolutely incredible, wonderfully mesmerising and a complete delight...I will definitely read whatever Turtschaninoff writes in future. Maresi completely captured my heart along with my imagination, and I'm not sure I want it back Once Upon a Bookcase A beautiful tale about women with a very special sisterly bond and I will gladly recommend it to all fantasy lovers LaChouett (blog) A haunting, beautiful dystopian novel, and an ins
