Again, a wonderful story. I loved seeing Belle become more independent and wrestle with opening herself up to new love or going back to Donner for the sake of her child. I loved Dawn's story and the unique, somewhat surprising turn it took (but I thought it was so well-done and the right choice). She starts seeing things the way they really are and loses some delusions. There were less main stories to focus on with this book and that was nice- we got to delve deeper into the two main characters.
I also love the moral dilemmas this series brings up- women who struggle to make the right choice and wonder what the right choice is. Personal happiness versus the fate of the world, etc. Though they are fun chick lit, they do make you wonder about real-life issues.
I will warn you-this book has you panting like Beast (Belle's dog) for the next story, as a lot remains unresolved and new issues are brought up at the very end!! I anxiously await the third and final book.
When a force larger than them all threatens to take all of their crowns, the women must band together and fight the evil which lurks in the shadows.
What a thoroughly enjoyable book! I loved the modern fairy tale aspect of Belle, Rapunzel, Dawn, Snow White and Cinderella's stories and I couldn't put this modern fairy tale down. I loved it from beginning to end, and can't wait to see how each woman's story turns out. Will Belle make the right decision? Will Dawn be forgiven? Where is Cin? Will Snow have a truly happy ending? All these questions and more follow me as I finish book two of the series, and I can't wait to delve in to book three.
Well-written, intriguing, and fun, I can't wait to see where this series leads me. With one more book left in the series I was left wanting more, and I definitely can't wait to find out how the series ends!
Damsels in Distress started off where Desperately Ever After ended, with Belle and Rapunzel opening their inn with the possibility of the curses coming back. This second installment also brought to the forefront Dawn aka Sleeping Beauty and Snow. We got a lot less of Cinder, Penelopea, and Rapunzel in this one, which was a little disappointing, but Belle was still the lead and she was my favorite so I was okay with the change. In this book, Belle was faced with the decision of whether or not to go back to Donner and having to run an inn with constant problems. Dawn was in a loveless marriage with Hunter, the prince who woke her up from her 300 year old sleep while Snow was trying to adopt a child with her husband even while they were constantly met with criticism for how they live in the woods.
Belle's story was still my favorite. Her character was just awesome and I loved how strong she was. I hated how the fate of everyone seemed to rest on her shoulders though. The girl was just trying to find her own fairy tale ending and was just constantly hounded by Ruby, a fairy. Luckily, Belle had Rapunzel who continued to be a rock star and defend Belle without fail. Love their friendship.
Dawn and Snow had bigger parts in this one and I was actually okay with it. Dawn's story was definitely a sad one. I always thought Sleeping Beauty was a great fairy tale but seeing it done this way did make sense. I mean who would want to be awakened by a stranger and then basically forced to marry him. It definitely didn't romanticize the story like the Disney version and I liked that. Dawn, however, did some things that were questionable, but at times you couldn't help but be sad for her and all the time she lost while asleep. It will be interesting to see how her story ends in the next and last installment especially since this book ended with her happily ever after in question.
Snow was definitely an interesting character with living in the woods and being all about nature and eating natural food. The news always painted her and her husband in a negative light with their lifestyle. You couldn't help but want the best for them especially since they were one of the few couples who were actually happy together.
As with Desperately Ever After, Damsels in Distress brought about new developments in the end that made you want the next book right now! I was on the edge of my seat and then it just ended! Luckily, I was prepared this time. That doesn't mean I was happy about it, I was just more accepting of it this time. It definitely made me excited for how it will end. And I really hope everything works out for everyone. I really want my fairy tale princesses to get their happily ever after.
