Damsel in Distress by Lee French – Review


Given the burden of safeguarding a precious treasure at a tender age, Sabetia is placed squarely in the middle of a fantastical legend. Swords, demons, magic, a curse: it has everything a great epic tale should. All she needs to do is face the danger that could threaten the world if left unchecked. If only it were so simple. A hero could solve this problem, but she doesn’t happen to be one.

A good wife is obedient, patient, obedient, quiet, obedient, doting, and above all, obedient. Sabetia was raised to be a good wife. It makes her perfect prey, a perfect damsel in distress. 

My Review:

I have to start by saying I’m not all that into books with a whimpy heroine that’s beaten into submission. For the first half of this book, all I felt for Sabetia was the growing need to smack her around myself, as illogical as that sounds.

But then she starts to stand up for herself, and things begin to change.

Damsel in Distress is a well-penned book, even if there is a lot of time-jumping. There are enough clues dropped through the book  to keep the reader guessing (but also solving) as to the ending, keeping the reader engaged at all times (it took me less than 6 hours to read the book, if that is any indication).

A delightful fantasy romp packed full of adventure.
