Libro Damsel (libro en inglés). Sinopsis libro, reseña libro. A 2019 Michael L. Printz Award Honor Book*A dark, twisted, unforgettable fairy tale from Elana K. Arnold, author of the National Book Award finalist What Girls Are Made OfThe rite has existed for as long as anyone can remember: When the king dies, his son the prince 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, she knows none of this. She has no memory of what came before she was captured by the dragon or what horrors she faced in its lair. She knows only this handsome young man, the story he tells of her rescue, and her destiny of sitting on a throne beside him. It’s all like a dream, like something from a fairy tale.As Ama follows Emory to the kingdom of Harding, however, she discovers that not all is as it seems. There is more to the legends of the dragons and the damsels than anyone knows, and the greatest threats may not be behind her, but around her, now, and closing in. Libro Damsel (libro en inglés).

    I don’t know how the heck I even got here. And I don’t know how the heck some books make it through publishing. Books like this. And why books like this are being marketed as YA when they are clearly not.

    I think the main idea here was interesting. And I guessed it right away. The origin of the damsel. And if this were a true YA book it could have been something great.

    But it was just so flat.

    I was bored from page one.

    The opening scene of the prince climbing a rockside cliff to slay a dragon took foreeeeever. It’s. Just. So. Painstakingly. Descriptive.

    Also there’s no buildup? I don’t know we just jump right into slaying a dragon and collecting this damsel who will be the prince’s bride, he brings her to his castle and we jump straight into sexual and mental and emotional abuse from there.

    Literally goes from charming, sweet prince and my fair lady to forced fingering and “I’m going to
    Kill your beloved cat” with no context. No backstory, no info on why or how this privileged prince is an arse on occasion but typically just dull background noise??? There’s no moment of, Oh! And here enters the antagonist! No mystery no nothing.

    And ugh the freaking cat. Not only was it completely appalling to throw disgusting animal abuse into this mess (the damsel acquires the kitten when the prince kills its mother on their trip back from dragon slaying) but then we have to know what the damn the kitten/cat is doing in like literally each paragraph there after: ‘The kitten was lapping up water like blah blah blah. Now the kitten was curled against her side sleeping like blah blah blah. Now the kitten was gnawing on a chunk of meat blah blah blah.’

    Annnnnd I don’t want to forget to grace you with the ridiculous names used for the prince/king’s dick (He’s king now that he brought a damsel home to wed, btw). I mean I guess it was pretty unique, I’ve never referred to a man’s penis like this. Is that what made this YA?? —
