Blog Tour: Damsel in Distress


Date Published: 3/20/2014

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

There are many levels to this story. I liked that it had the Magical qualities of a good Fantasy Novel along with deeper themes that made it feel more real. 

These characters were compelling, from the very beginning I found myself intrigued by Sabetia and her strength of character. Despite the trials of her life, she was a strong individual.

The plot was entertaining and flowed nicely, nothing felt like it dragged or was too rushed. 

A beautiful fantasy novel.
