On Day Six of our Countdown to All Souls Con 2018, we express our love and admiration for Ysabeau de Clermont, Matthew’s impossibly stylish, wickedly intelligent vampire mother. Ysabeau is a marriage of contradictions — dangerous and funny, remote and affectionate, stylish and savage. We love that she saved Matthew and gave him a chance at redemption. We love that she offers support, love, and guidance to Diana as she begins her life as the matriarch of a new clan. Ysabeau is an amazing character who raises and answers questions about motherhood, power, civilization, resilience, and change. She is dynamic and fascinating and we hope to see far more of her in books to come.
How do you feel about Ysabeau? Tell us what you love about her in our Facebook group, the Chamomile & Clove Clovers.
Ready for the next post? Here’s Day Seven.
