it was amazing
bookshelves: fantasy, urban-fantasy, beach-read
Read in January, 2003

Damsel under Stress finally get the romance going... kinda. Combining magic and romance makes the beginning of a relationship even rockier than normal. We learn more about Owen and his family which is fun. Idris is up to his normal evil ways. All the characters are there with one added bonus: Ethelinda.

The fairy godmother is a blast! I love how she makes painful situations even more so with her antiquated notions of romance and dating. I also love how even Merlin doesn't know how to deal with her.

The ending was classically romantic, too. I understand why certain decisions were made but I don't have to like them. Sympathy for the situation added to my enjoyment of the book.
