Introducing the third and final installment in the celebrated Red Abbey Chronicles trilogy
Red Mantle is the gripping conclusion to the critically acclaimed first two installments in the Red Abbey Chronicles, Maresi and Naondel. An epistolary novel, Red Mantle is told through the letters Maresi writes back to her friends and mentors at the Abbey. The novel continues the story of Maresi as she leaves the Abbey at Menos and returns home to the small, oppressed province of Rovas. There, Maresi is determined to spread the knowledge she has gained and start a school—but in the end, she will learn just as much as she teaches.
