Fast paced story which held me bound to listen and complete in just two days.

"Ysabel" is a fun and unique story centered around a 15 yr old boy in modern France.

The story is fit for a broad spectrum of readers. From teens to grand parents.

Myself being in my mid 50s found this book because I love the narration of Kate Reading who I first listen to reading "Eye of the World" by Robert Jordan(I also highly recommend). Her narration of "Ysable" is superb.

Quality writing. Excellent story.

I had doubts when the story started: the hero is 15 and talks like a stoner dude <lol>. But I remembered reading books by this author (a long time ago) ....and enjoying them. So, I hung in there. Excellent read. I really enjoyed the story (and it's been a while since I could say that without qualifying the statement <g>).
