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. 



I was a little worried I would get lost or not be able to keep up because so much time is spanned throughout, but Lee French does a great job of keeping readers focused on the important details and making sure she doesn't lose us somewhere along the way. I was pleasantly surprised by how invested I became in the characters very early on. Sometimes it takes me a little while to warm up to characters as I get to know them, but Sabetia was so easy to understand and feel connected to as a reader. 

A quick read, not because of the length, but because you will get completely lost in the book and not be able to put it down. Well Done.

Lee French lives in Worcester, MA with two kids, two bicycles, and too much stuff. She has written several books, including the Maze Beset superhero novel trilogy. In addition, she is an avid gamer and active member of the Myth-Weavers online RPG community, where she is infamous for finding unexpected ways to use squirrels. She also trains year-round for the one-week of glorious madness that is RAGBRAI, has a nice flower garden with absolutely no lawn gnomes, and tries in vain every year to grow vegetables that don’t get devoured by neighborhood wildlife.
