"While Gibby roots his story in the 20th century and peoples it with characters from the German occupation of France during World War II, The Martyr of Chalaines is a timeless tale of the triumph of good over evil.
"C.S. Lewis had great respect and admiration for George MacDonald. Lewis felt that McDonald's genius was in fantasy that 'hovered between the allegorical and the mythopoeic'. It is this region of the literary landscape that Bryce Gibby firmly establishes his novella, The Martyr of Chalaines... There is a wisdom and maturity in Gibby's novella that is certain to attract devoted readers of all ages." -Scott Cameron
