Arnold 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 beenWhen Ama wakes in the arms of Prince Emory however she knows I honestly can t give this one a rating and that is largely due to the number of triggers including graphic sexual assault rape self harm mental and physical abuse suicide and animal harm Please please please be aware of that while making a decision on whether or not this book is for you I sincerely hope the publisher adds warnings to the book itself and to the description on Goodreads More belowFirst off the writing is gorgeous Elana is extremely talented This is a feministic Sleeping Beauty reimagining with one of the most uniue spins I ve ever seen I ll also add that the author was trying to make a point in this book so the triggers were definitely done on purpose with purpose However I felt sick to my stomach during 90% of this book I m shocked this is marketed to YA readers without any warning about triggersIn the first few chapters we are thrown into the middle of Prince Emory s rescuing of the Damsel he will wed to become king I absolutely loved it and I loved Emory until his inner narration grazed over thoughts a previous sexual relationship It was warning sign number oneAfter Emory rescues the Damsel we switch POVs The rest of the book is told from Ama s perspective She wakes up in Emory s arms with no recollection of who she is where she was before or her rescue Slowly Emory becomes less of a prince and a monster In fact his entire kingdom has jaded views of women SPOILERS BELOW concerning the triggersview spoilerFor those of you concerned about

his castle Ama finds a lynx and her kitten Emory shoots the lynx when the lynx didn t actually pose threat to Ama Emory also undresses in front of Ama and his body parts are described in sharp detail In fact throughout the book there are graphic descriptions of ALL of his body parts in detail and what sex feels like with him from other girls he sleeps with In fact the kingdom discusses Emory s horn or yard as they call it several times all throughout the bookIn her first night I think it s the first night in the castle Emory barges into her room removes her clothes and shoves his fingers

ueen Mother Emory s mom who can t rule because women can t rule in this world tells Ama to accept everything She also talks of the former ueen Mother who found ways to cope in the castle through harming herself Detailed self harm talk Then she tells Ama how the ueen killed herself Near the end Emory finds Ama doing something he doesn t approve of He hits Ama twice Later we find out Ama was actually the dragon and Emory freed her of the dragon by RAPING her therefore turning her into a human and making her beautiful Come to think of it that to me counts as beastiality I m sure I ve

Damsel Author Elana K. Arnold Review ☆ 102 Read º PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Î Elana K. Arnold Summary Damsel Author Elana K. Arnold 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 When I first heard about this I wasn t sure what to expect I saw it hailed as a dark fairytale retelling but I ve been promised that many times by other stories that delivered on the retelling while leaving aside any hints of the dark aspect Damsel on the other hand is exactly what it promises an incredibly dark fantasy story that pulls no punches That is the way of being a woman to carve away at herself to fit herself to the task but also to be able to carve herself in a different way when a different shape is needed The story itself is genuinely intriguing and I loved Ama as a character She s so unapologetically herself and she simply doesn t grasp why things are the way they are or why she s expected to act or look certain ways Even when she tries to make herself look small and sweet for the sake of self defense the rope always snaps and she comes out swinging in the end a fighter in every sense of the word The tastes of men are not all kind Emory on the other hand I wanted to punch Emory in the throat from literally the first chapter I actually made a note in my eARC in chapter 1 saying as much He s obsessed with himself and what he considers to be his heroic nature and all of that s even before the really terrible things about him come into play Never trust the prince whose life goal is murdering a dragon that s what I always say Emory embodies everything that s wrong with the damsel in distress trope the Prince Charming nonsense that films and books have fed us over the years and the idea that any woman owes anything to a man who saved her from a dragon she never even sought rescue from Before Emory had saved her from the dragon Ama had never been lonely Though there are multiple awful characters you will hate every moment of the way and though the content is heavy and uncomfortable most of the time the writing behind it all is so gorgeous and whimsical despite a few phrases for genitalia that made me snicker and Arnold is clearly skilled in her art There are so many subtle things that came together in the end to surprise me and I couldn t put the story down because I constantly needed to know what would happen next And if something is the way it has always been who are we to wish it otherwise Who are we to want anything at all As for the dark subject matter the heavy content is why this story meant so much to me We see feminist fantasy stories released all the time in YA lately but they re usually tame and merely hint at issues Damsel on the other hand takes those issues and shoves them right in your face forcing you to address their existence This book is full of sexual assault some of it explicit abuse of humans and animals misogyny rape culture self harm and suicide Through all of that it s clear that Arnold is fed up with the state of the world and has refused to pull any punches in her writing and I applaud her for that brutal honesty I have learned lady that why is a dangerous word A lot of people are uestioning whether Damsel should be marketed as YA fantasy While I wouldn t otherwise have a problem with it being YA as I m a big believer that what teens read should be between them and their parents plenty of teens will be able to handle this content without issue a part of me thinks it would be better if Damsel was marketed to an adult audience simply because I don t feel like this story deserves to be punished for its truthfulness Wild beasts are not meant to be tamed All in all if you re interested in picking up a copy of Damsel please be aware of the trigger warnings going into it I have read a ridiculous amount of YA fantasy in my life and very rarely has any of it made me feel uite as bothered and anxious as this book did That said I genuinely believe that sometimes if we can handle it we need to feel disgusted to be reminded of just how toxic our society s treatment of women can be If you can stomach it Damsel is the perfect resource to take you there All uotes come from an advance copy and may not match the final release Thank you so much to Balzer Bray for providing me with this ARC in exchange for an honest reviewYou can find this review and on my blog or you can follow me on twitter bookstagram or facebook
