Saladin Ahmed, author of Throne of the Crescent Moon, calls Damselle in Distress a delightful, fairy-tale skewering comedy.Damselle has spent her sixteen years terrorized by magical creatures and evil villains. Now she’s done waiting for the next bad thing to happen or for the arrogant knights in the local order to come to her rescue. And she’s really tired of being shunned as if her bad luck is contagious.

Her name, “Damselle,” marks her forever a “damsel in distress.” To change her name – and her life – Damselle must find three items of vast magical power.Though she is aided by several new friends, Damselles journey through the woods may be more distressing than even she dreamed. Because, in The Willowwax, a hydrophobic witch and a Society of Evil Stepmothers are the least of her concerns. And of course shell have to rescue the incompetent but persistent Sir Leal. (Who ever heard of a damsel saving a knight, anyway?)To make matters worse, Damselle can’t rid herself of the strange feeling she knows exactly where to go, despite never having been in the woods before…
