04:12 pm - Ysabel by Guy Gavriel Kay
Yes, I'm finally posting a review. Please don't fall over with a heart attack. :)

I a d o r e Guy Gavriel Kay's work. His latest, Ysabel, is no exception. Ysabel is basically a not-quite-dark bedtime story about the 15-year old son of a famous photographer who accompanies his father to France and gets...sucked into a love triangle over two millenia old.

In my opinion, quality of storytelling just doesn't get better than Guy Gavriel Kay. His prose manages to walk that razor line between overly poetic and just not pretty enough. I never fail to fall in love with his characters, and he is a true master at weaving fantasy in with reality and vice versa.

So. Check out Ysabel. And then once you're hooked, check out the rest of Guy Gavriel Kay's work.

Re: Unless I'm about to be very surprised...

Coolies! I like a nice stand alone book every once in a while.
