Waiting on Wednesday (121)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, I am excited for Damsel by Elana K. Arnold! Damsel is a new twist on the typical damsel in distress, lady kidnapped by a dragon story. I look forward to discovering the mystery in this novel, and the secret behind the damsel in distress. And I can't forget the fact that the cover is absolutely gorgeous! The combination of the bright colors on the black background and the glass blown figures makes for a stunning image.


The rite has existed for as long as anyone can remember: when the prince-who-will-be-king comes of age, he must venture out into the gray lands, slay a fierce dragon, and rescue a damsel to be his bride. This is the way things have always been.

When Ama wakes in the arms of Prince Emory, however, she knows none of this. She has no memory of what came before she was captured by the dragon, or what horrors she has faced in its lair. She knows only this handsome prince, the story he tells of her rescue, and her destiny to sit on the throne beside him. Ama comes with Emory back to the kingdom of Harding, hailed as the new princess, welcomed to the court.

However, as soon as her first night falls, she begins to realize that not all is as it seems, that there is more to the legends of the dragons and the damsels than anyone knows–and that the greatest threats to her life may not be behind her, but here, in front of her.

Release: October 2, 2018
