A review by tash9
Damsel by Elana K. Arnold

emotional tense fast-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated


I had two frames of though after finishing this book

1.for women with femininist rage. Read this.
Even if the paid off is only the last page i found it very satisfying.  Especially for the parallels between her and Sorrow

2.It's a bit repetitive in its messaging and it's framing of women in the story. And men just being well men. And all the women in the story being accepting of things. But that is the status quo in this world which we question from the outside but is understandable that characters within do not.
