About the book 3: Maresi Red Mantle: 

For Maresi, like so many other girls, the Red Abbey was a haven of safety in a world ruled by brutal men. But now she is a young woman and it is time for her to leave. She must take all that she has learned from her sisters and return to her childhood home to share the knowledge she has gained.

But when Maresi returns to her village, she realises all is not well – the people are struggling under the rule of the oppressive Earl, and people are too busy trying to survive to see the value of her teachings. Maresi finds she must use all the terrible force of the Crone’s magic to protect her people, but can she find the strength to do so when her heart is weakening with love for the first time

Book 1: Maresi is a tale of friendship set in the Red Abbey, a refuge for women and girls, that falls under attack.
Book 2: Naondel tells the story of the First Sisters: how they fled from a harem and founded the abbey.
