Maresi Red Mantle is the third and final book in the Red Abbey Chronicles. It follows Maresi as she leaves the sanctuary and safety of the Red Abbey and returns to her childhood home of Rovas.
It is at once a heart-wrenching coming-of-age story, a nail-biting fantasy adventure, and an unapologetically feminist treatise that has won the hearts of younger and older readers alike.
