Chrysanthe by Yves Meynard( Book )
5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 234 libraries worldwide
Christine, the princess and heir to the real world of Chrysanthe, is kidnapped as a small child by a powerful magician and exiled in a Made World that is a version of our present reality. In exile, supervised by her strict "uncle"(actually a wizard in disguise), she undergoes bogus memory recovery therapy, through which she is forced to remember childhood rape and abuse by her parents and others. She is terribly stunted emotionally by this terrifying plot, but at seventeen discovers it is all a lie. Christine escapes with a rescuer, Sir Quentin, a knight from Chrysanthe, in a thrilling chase across realities. Once home, the magical standoff caused by her exile is broken, and a war begins, in spite of the best efforts of her father, the king, and his wizard, Melogian. And that war, which takes up nearly the last third of the work, is a marvel of magical invention and terror, a battle between good and evil forces that resounds with echoes of the great battles of fantasy literature.

Angels and Exiles by Yves Meynard( Book )
3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 12 libraries worldwide
"We dream of angels, black as space, and wish they could return from the future to warn us of the dark years ahead. We who have forgotten our origin, exiles in a land we may have shaped with our own hands; we who struggle to find meaning in a world that only vouchsafes us deadly revelation; we wage war, for reasons now lost to us, and our hopes are as tenuous as the light of a single star." In these twelve sombre tales, ranging from baroque science fiction to bleak fantasy, Yves Meynard brings to life wonders and horrors. From space travellers who must rid themselves of the sins their souls accumulate in transit, to a young man whose love transcends time; from refugees in a frozen hold at the end of space, to a city drowning under the weight of its architectural prayer; from an alien Jerusalem that has corrupted the Earth, to a land still bleeding from the scars of a supernatural war; here are windows opened onto astonishing vistas, stories written with a scientist's laser focus alloyed with a poet's

Sébastien, le fils du Margrave et héritier de la Marche Orientale, décide d'explorer une section inconnue du château familial et de vivre ainsi la dernière aventure de son enfance. -- Son escapade nous fait pénétrer dans un monde lunaire coloré, qui a son vocabulaire et sa hiérarchie propres, qui est géré par des créatures fantastiques de sexe féminin et où les mâles jouent un rôle de second plan. Cet univers est décrit avec minutie et témoigne de l'indéniable talent de conteur du directeur littéraire de la revue ##Solaris##. L'intérêt est soutenu par les nombreux rebondissements même si ce monde nous apparaît désincarné et froid
Les marches de la Lune morte by Yves Meynard( Book )
4 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in French and held by 8 libraries worldwide
Être le fils unique de Théodore Szeleky, le Margrave de la Marche Orientale, n'est pas une situation facile, même si Sébastien est l'héritier d'une lignée prestigieuse qui remonte jusqu'au légendaire Lorann. C'est du moins ce que pense le jeune garçon, qui se sent bien seul dans l'immensité du château à moitié en ruine de son père, d'autant plus que ce dernier, depuis la mort de sa femme, n'a jamais été aussi déprimé et solitaire. C'est la raison pour laquelle Sébastien, quand il découvre une étrange porte au cours d'une de ses expéditions dans les parties les plus reculées du château, n'hésite pas à la franchir - peut-être trouvera-t-il derrière quelque chose digne de sa curiosité ? Mais le couloir secret qu'il parcourt après avoir traversé l'ouverture, s'il ne le mène pas à un trésor, lui permet de faire une découverte insensée : il n'est plus au château, ni même dans la Marche Orientale ! En réalité, s'il se fie à son poids qui a diminué d'une manière draconienne et au paysage qu'il contemple à travers une fenêtre, il doit se rendre à l'évidence : il a été transporté sur la Lune! Or, si les livres de contes commencent souvent par la phrase : "C'était au temps où la Lune était verte... ", jamais ils n'ont mentionné qu'elle était habitée !--[Memento]
