On Chrysanthe:

“Wonderfully original […]
beautifully written with a sure control of register” Jo Walton, Tor.com

A different sort of politics emerges in Yves Meynard’s Chrysanthe , a sublime mix of fairy tale, political thriller, and military fantasy. […] The talented French Canadian author of The Book of Knights, which raised medieval fantasy to a higher level, now takes on the saga form with this luminous tale of multiple realities­ and the triumph of love over evil.” — Jackie Cassada, Library Journal (starred review)

“Mind-bendingly creative in terms of both world and spectacular set pieces. […] Meynard has a talent for scenes that stick in the mind.”
— David Berry,
National Post

“An unpredictable, brilliantly imaginative, and very engaging fantasy.” —Ursula K. Le Guin
