Witches, saints, romance, and gore collide in this story that is part horror, part thriller and wholly feminist. Extasia is a moonlit, genre-bending novel that is truly as spellbinding and beautiful as it is grotesque. Hand this to fans of The Handmaid’s Tale & The Grace Year.

Extasia is power, and Claire Legrand is a legend. . . . I love the rage, the sorrow, the love despite it all. I loved everything about this book, and can’t wait for readers to recoil with wide eyes from the very first pages.
Katlin Kerrison, Story on the Square (McDonough, GA)
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.
