A mixture of The Wilder Girls and The Grace Year, Extasia explodes off the page and grabs you by the throat. I couldn’t have stopped reading this book if I tried.
Alyssa Raymond, Copper Dog Books (Beverly, MA)
Claire Legrand’s latest feminist horror novel is even more frightening than Sawkill Girls and perfect for fans of The Grace Year, Wilder Girls, and The Wicked Deep.
Aubrey Freely, Mostly Books (Tucson, AZ)
Full of creepy, gory horror and a well-developed scheme of magic, Extasia is a feminist thriller that lets the reader see what it could be like to become fully, finally, awake.
Leah Atlee, Bright Side Bookshop (Flagstaff, AZ)
As the story closely examines indoctrination, belief-systems, and violence, there will be no settling answers within these pages, only a genre-defying dish of Palahniuk-esque disturbing content with a side of chilled blood. Mind. Blown.
Carissa Mina, The Wandering Jellyfish (Niwot, CO)
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.
