Into this idyllic existence comes Jai, a girl with a dark past. She has escaped her home after witnessing the killing of her beloved sister. Soon the dangers of the outside world follow Jai into the sacred space of the Abbey, and Maresi can no longer hide in books and words but must become one who acts.  Bound for international success, Maresi will be published in 15 territories around the world!

A unique story line geared towards the sci-fi fantasy, feminist fans. The Red Abbey is a haven for girls who have nowhere else to go. Knowledge and strength are key elements in this story filled with smart, kind, and strong women of all ages. A bit too feminist for my taste, but nonetheless a good recommendation for the the mature teen who can handle a bit of rough content.
