Ysabel - Guy Gavriel Kay I did a lot of skimming in this book. There were aspects I really enjoyed, especially seeing some Fionavar characters again. There was also a lot of the EPIC DOOMED LOVE TRIANGLE THROUGH THE AGES stuff that isn't much to my tastes, although it's clearly to Kay's. Ultimately: kinda fun, but not wholly my kind of thing.
