Kay, Guy Gavriel -- Ysabel

Kid meets intense mythic avatars from the dawn of et cetera. Present-day setting, and brings in some characters from Kay's early Fionavar trilogy. This bothered some people who remembered anything about Fionavar. It didn't bother me, but in retrospect those characters were a distraction from the plot. But then maybe the plot needed distraction. Without Kay's usual layerings of historic detail, the intense mythic avatars kind of came off as twits.
