Review

Praise for Red Sister

“Dark, passionate, tense, with a female hero anyone could relate to—I was utterly fascinated! This is no pretty, flowery tale, but one of vastly different people struggling to survive when a hostile government comes to power.”—Tamora Pierce, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Battle Magic

“The lyrical excellence of previous books is present in full force here and it’s fair to say that Mark Lawrence has evolved into a master of his craft. In Red Sister he has produced a novel that is as thought provoking as it is entertaining, and as poignant as it is ferocious. Highly recommended.”—Anthony Ryan, New York Times bestselling author of The Waking Fire

“In this stunning, action-filled series launch, Lawrence ('Broken Empire' trilogy) establishes a fantastic world in which religion and politics are sharp as swords, with magic and might held in the hands of wonderful and dangerous women. Impatient George R.R. Martin fans will find this a pleasing alternative until the next installment in his “A Song of Ice and Fire” saga arrives.”—Library Journal, starred review

“It’s not like anything I’ve ever read before.”—Rick Riordan, #1 New York Times bestselling author
 
“Dark and relentless...A two-in-the-morning page-turner.”—Robin Hobb, New York Times bestselling author
 
“Epic fantasy on a George R. R. Martin scale but on speed.”—Fixed on Fantasy
 
“Mark Lawrence’s growing army of fans will relish this rollicking new adventure and look forward to the next one.”—Daily Mail --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different
By Aishwarya rathor on 9 June 2019
Publisher- Harper Voyager books
Length- 500
My views-
After a very long time,I have developed a huge respect and love for a book.
Red Sister, the first book of Mark Lawrence's Book of Ancestor Trilogy. The protagonist Nona Grey, is bought to convent of Sweet Mercy to become a killer.
This coming of age fantasy is mostly about battles focusing mainly on the convent.
Mostly all the characters are women. Every character is written with ease and very clear with their thoughts and ideas.
The book is full of drama and action, however the middle portion of about fifty pages, i found them slow. Otherwise the pace was good.
Nona's character was the most beautiful, full of curiosity and an urge to make new friends, live life to the fullest. Nona belonged to the Red Class i.e an age group of 9-12 years. Also, Red sisters were warriors those are in armed-unarmed combat.
A geeat emphasis is put on friendship, failures, Believing in good and bad, making the book meaningful and different.
Eagerly waiting to read The grey sister.
