    I don't think I convinced anyone to read "Maresi" earlier this year, and I probably won't convince anyone to read its prequel, which is very unfortunate. Of many YA fantasy novels published these days, this one definitely offers something different. The novel's main characters reside in a harem, and knowing that "Maresi" takes place on island where women find safe haven from oppression of men, it's no spoiler to say that women of "Naondel" hate their husband/owner/abuser/rapist and seek escape f [...]

    3.5 starsNaondel reads like a mash-up of A Thousand Nights and Memoirs of a Geisha. Like the former, it is a feminist testimony to the outward weakness but inward strength of women. Like the latter, it is filled with hardship, and struggles, and pain, which – balanced by the beautiful setting and writing – made this a bittersweet kind of read, both beautiful and dreadful.Whilst marketed in the Teens & YA section on NetGalley, the content is brutal and devastating in both a psychological [...]

    5 Words: Power, control, feminism, survival, magic.I knew from the moment I read about the Naondel in Maresi that I had to know more.This book is written in a slightly different style from Maresi, with the narrative changing at intervals between different characters. It still has the same feel to the writing, it's still quite blunt and in your face at times, but I loved it. I could easily distinguish between the characters - and quickly realised that I had a favourite. I just love Garai, okay?I [...]

    I just CANNOT get enough of this series!I loved both this, and Maresi (the first in the series) in equal, yet different measure. More books filled to bursting with strong, awesome female characters please?!This instalment was so much darker. So much heavier. Filled with so much more evil and malevolence. And I loved it!It was such a great origin story for The Red Abbey, and I can't wait for book number three!

    Ehh, I read this without knowing that this is a sequel (or actually a prequel). Anyway, it was a very good read with a lot of interesting characters. Love the settings and the writing was good. The only thing I didn't like is that the main villain is toooo evil and basically rapes every women he encounters :/I am going to look for the first book now :)

    Maria Turtschaninoffin vastikään imestynyt nuorten fantasiaromaani Naondel on kertomus naisista, jotka perustavat jo Turtschaninoffin edellisestä romaanista Maresista tutun Punaisen luostarin. Vaikka teos on itsenäinen jatko-osa Maresille, se sijoittuu aikaan ennen tätä. Luostaria perustamaan päästään vasta kirjan lopussa, ja sitä ennen tarina kertoo naisten elämästä vankeina Karenokoin visiiri Iskanin haaremissa. Iskan on paha ja vallanhimoinen ja pitää naisia ja koko valtakunta [...]

    Ei tämä kyllä mikään nuortenkirja ollut, ja oikeastaan hyvä niin. Osui ja upposi, erittäin mainio kirja. Ainoastaan haittasi lopussa päähenkilöiden suuri määrä ja siitä seuraava hahmojen sekoittaminen toisiinsa.

    "Anji schenkt leven en voorspoed, als je haar water op het juiste moment gebruikt." ~ p35.Wat een prachtig verhaal!! Ik vind het gewoon jammer dat hij alweer uit is. Ik ben echt door de pagina's heen gevlogen, en elke letter opgezogen alsof het de laatste was."Ik was dan van andersmans dromen af, maar die van mezelf waren ook niet fraai." ~ p155.Naondel is het tweede deel uit de Kronieken van het Rode Klooster en verteld het verhaal van de Oerzusters. Je leest de memoires opgeschreven door de vr [...]

    Told through the perspectives of multiple women, Naondel is heartbreaking, breathtaking, and utterly feminist. It's a story of women, sisterhood, and survival. We begin with Kabira, a young woman from a wealthy family, who guards the secret of Anji, the spring that gives life - and controls it. Kabira falls in love with Iskan, son of a powerful man in the realm, and shows him what Anji can do. Iskan's evil soon rears its head, and Kabira is terrified of what she's unleashed. But she is trapped i [...]

    Aluksi en ollut ihan varma tykkäänkö tästä vai ei mutta kyllä tästä kehkeytyi edeltäjäänsäkin vahvempi ja kauniimpi kirja. Fantasikirjallisuudessa tämänkaltainen naiskeskeisyys on harvinnaista ja Turtschaninoff kirjoittaa sen loistavasti tarinaan, feminismi on läsnä muttei hyökkää vaan toteaa.

    Huh, melkein tekisi mieli heittää aikuisten osastolle mutta ei sittenkään. Tuhannen ja yhden yön tarujen (niiden alkuperäisten) fiilistä vallan, seksin, sadismin, alistamisen, ystävyyden, puolustautumisen ja nöyryyttämisen kautta.Maresiin tekisi mieli palata ja tutkia, kuinka nämä synkät tarinat elävät "nykynuorten" parissa saarella ja kuinka elämä jatkuukaan aina kaikesta huolimatta. Kieli on upeaa matkatessaan vanhahtavasta sadunomaisuudesta psykologisiin itsetutkiskeluihin ja [...]

    An intense, painful but ultimately uplifting read. This will be triggering for many - the violence against women is so present, and while not graphic, it’s descriptive enough to be viscerally uncomfortable. But this is also a testament to sisterhood and the power of women. The emphasis on the small secret magics of women and the abuses of powe-hungry men (mostly just one) make this a good readalike for A Thousand Nights, but this is, I think, the stronger — and harder — read. Also despite [...]

    Hienoja naishahmoja vallan ja väkivallan keskellä. Naondel on itsenäinen jatko-osa Maresille, ja aiheutti suuren halun lukea se uudelleen. Naondelissa paljastetaan, kuinka punainen luostari sai alkunsa. Matka sinne on ollut pitkä ja tuskainen, ja Naondelissa on luettavaa neljäsataa sivua. Tarina kuitenkin kantaa, viihdyttää ja koskettaa alusta loppuun.

    Alltså åh så himla bra! Blev helt hänförd av den här berättelsen - så himla vacker men samtidigt otroligt brutal och mörk. Jag känner en himla massa när jag läser - obehag, glädje, sorg, ilska, spänning -, hela upplevelsen blir liksom väldigt stark. Högt tempo, snygga miljöbeskrivningar som skapar otroligt vackra bilder i mitt huvud, intressanta, mångsidiga karaktärer och ett levande språk. Mycket bättre än vad jag tyckte Maresi var!DOCK tycker jag att storyn blir lite väl [...]

    Let me just preface this with a little note on Maresi, the first book in this series.Maresi was a pleasant read that touched briefly on how terrible it can be to be a woman, but over all was a positive book with a really uplifting vibe. Woman escaped bad situations to come and live freely on an island that let them work and learn in a safe haven that men couldn't access. It was a nice coming-of-age tale about sisterhood and the potential that a woman can have if she's given opportunity.This left [...]

    Highly enjoyed reading this! I didn't mind the huge amount of characters, but a few of them were left a little too distant for my taste. Also I don't think this is a book for very young people? Thoughts on that, anyone?Naondel explains a lot of those unanswered questions I had after finishing the first of the series, Maresi, but not all of them. And that's very much okay, because it makes me even more eager to read the third book some day.

    Siinä missä Maresi oli napakka luunappi, on Naondel armoton ruoskansivallus. Erittäin vahva romaani, mutta myös erittäin ahdistava. En suosittelisi kovin nuorelle lukijalle. Raiskauksia on paljon ja vaikka niillä ei mässäillä (erinomainen ratkaisu, ei ole tarvis graafiselle kuvaukselle!), on tunnelma todella synkkä ja armoton.Tästä kirjasta on vaikea keksiä moitittavaa, joten mitäpä sitä sitten suotta kaivelemaankaan. Ei hyvän mielen kirja, mutta erinomaista kirjallisuutta yli 1 [...]

    Alltså ååh vilken bok. Maria Turtschaninoff blir bara bättre och bättre. Boken är både hemsk och vacker och borde vara ett måste för alla!

    Original review posted here* I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review *This book just blew me away. I really enjoyed Maresi when I read it but this was in another league. I wasn’t sure what to expect in the prequel but this perfectly told the story of the women who founded the Red Abbey.The book is told from the point of view of each of these women. It starts with Kabira, a young girl who is the guardian to a powerful spring called Anji. When Iskan, the son of the Vizier [...]

    Disclaimer: I received this book free from Netgalley in return for an un-biased review.This has been a really good month for me! First I got The Girl in the Tower which I was dying to read. Then I got this book, Naondel, and I’ve been so excited to read this! The book gods are shining down on me right now!This book is the second in the Red Abbey Chronicles series, but it actually serves as a kind of prequel to the first book, Maresi. This book follows the same themes, but it fills in the backs [...]

    Naondel is the second book in Maria Turtschaninoff's Red Abbey Chronicles, after Maresi, which is set in the above-mentioned feminist utopia, several years after the events of Naondel. (I reviewed Maresi not long ago, and highly recommend it.) Maresi is cozy but unafraid of dealing with dark issues like mortality and violence against women; Naondel dials the darkness up to eleven. The women and girls of Maresi are confined on an island, but by their own choice, and live a life of happy industri [...]

    One of the best books I've read this year, and that's from an author who writes in Swedish in Finland! You truly cared for Kabira, she had many flaws, but after what she'd been through, I can't blame her. The villain could have been slightly better, he basically raped every woman in this book, but you still see the sheer power he had over the women. Feminist book of the year!

    Originally posted on Once Upon a BookcaseIGGER WARNING: Rape features heavily in this book.When I finished Maresi, Maria Turtschaninoff's first book in The Red Abbey Chronicles, I loved it so much I was ready to dive in to the second book straight away. I have patiently waited a whole year for the much anticipated prequel, Naondel, and it was most definitely worth the wait! Naondel is incredible, and even better than Maresi!Naondel is a book written by six women, six of the seven first Sisters o [...]

    I was entranced by Turtschaninoff’s lyrical prose in her first novel, Maresi. It was quiet and simple, yet the female voices and the undercurrent of threat laced through the narrative were very powerful. Naondel delivers the same rich description and vivid world building but it is very different in its approach to the subject matter. Do not expect Maresi the sequel; this is an entirely different story but the voices are as haunting as ever.The opening of the novel displays Turtschaninoff’s e [...]

    Naondel is the prequel companion to Maresi and tells the story of the First Sisters and how they came to the island of Menos. We first meet Kabira as a young girl. She has just been introduced to Iskan and has fallen under his spell. He is the son of the Vizier and very handsome and charming. He seduces Kabira and she shares with him her family's secret spring Anji, who is a living force that influences those who drink her water. Iskan learns the ways of Anji and takes over the spring by killing [...]
