“Strong ending for the fantasy trilogy” – Vasabladet newspaper
“Turtschaninoff’s literary universe can be compared to that of the biggest names in the genre. Maresi: Red Mantle is a rich, skilled epistolary novel that shows that Maria Turtschaninoff gets better and better with each novel. She is an incomparable narrator.” – Yle Nyheter broadcaster
