Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale meets M. Night Shyamalan’s The Village in Extasia, a sinister story of unchecked religious extremism in a post-apocalyptic world. This book gave me chills on every page. I could not put it down!
Legrand’s lush and uniquely evocative prose keeps tensions high throughout Amity’s struggle with her magic, fury, and conscience.
Legrand successfully brings a supernatural gruesomeness to her exploration of morality and agency.
The Handmaid’s Tale meets The Craft in this feminist standalone from Legrand (the Empirium trilogy), a fusion of horror and queer romantic fantasy that advocates unity, self-empowerment, and societal change.
Legrand crafts a fiercely unsubtle feminist fantasy that takes on the patriarchy and the toxicity of hate.
The book’s message is a worthy one: ‘It is no small thing, to have a gentle heart.’
