Review – Ysabel

“Ysabel” is one of the best fiction books I have read in a very long time. It is at times exciting, enlightening, and confounding. It tells a story that is steeped in history and broad emotional themes, as well as visceral and immediate to the world we live in. It is a moving examination of love, conflict, and remembrance.

I picked up the book from the bargain bin because I am a fan of the author – Guy Gavriel Kay. It has been years since I read any of his work, but from the moment my friends and I read it in high school, his book “Tigana” has been one of my top favorite books of all time. (As a side note – you should tryTigana”. It is the best example I have ever read of how complete and compelling a mythos a truly gifted author can create in the space of just one single book. There is more depth, character, emotion, and scope in that singular volume, than I have seen in some “epic” trilogies.) But enough about “Tigana” – let’s talk about “Ysabel”.
