Overview

Damsel under Stress by Shanna Swendson

To-do: Stop the bad guys. Rescue the wizard. Find the perfect outfit for New Year’s Eve.

At last, Owen Palmer, the dreamboat wizard at Magic, Spells, and Illusions, Inc., has conjured up the courage to get Katie Chandler under the mistletoe at the office holiday party. But just when it looks like Katie has found her prince, in pops her inept fairy godmother, Ethelinda, to throw a wand into the works. Ethelinda’s timing couldn’t be worse. A plot hatched by MSI’s rogue ex-employees, Idris and his evil fairy gal pal Ari, threatens to expose the company’s secrets–and the very existence of magic itself. Even worse, it could also mean the end of Katie’s happily-ever-after.

Now Katie and Owen must work side by side (but alas, not cheek to cheek) to thwart the villains’ plans. Braving black-magic-wielding sorceresses, subway-dwelling dragons, lovelorn frog princes, and even the dreaded trip to meet Owen’s parents at Christmas, Katie and her beau are in a battle to beat Idris at his own sinister game. All mischief and matters of the heart will come to a head at a big New Year’s Eve gala, when the crystal ball will drop, champagne will pour, and Katie will find herself truly spellbound.

LOVE the fairy godmother!  I hope they make this a movie...could think of so many hysterically funny older actresses for the role

Good series, however Swendson LEAVES IT UNFINISHED and WILL NOT WRITE THE 8TH BOOK. Per the author the story is "pretty much closed out in my head". BE WARNED, YOU'LL READ 7 GREAT BOOKS AND THE AUTHOR LEAVES YOU HANGING. You'll just have to make up your own ending because Swendson's moved on without completing this series.

A fine blend of urban fantasy and romance

This chapter in the continuing saga is a lot of fun. I recommend all her stories because they are an easy read with a touch of whimsy.

I've enjoyed all of the books in this series, and this one did not disappoint.  This series has had me cracking up and bummed that it ended.  Okay for teens too.

It's funny, it's romantic and full of magic.  Love this series. I've read all the books; could there be more like it coming? The fairy godmother is a fun character; every time she shows up, she has on another layer of clothing.

Damsel Under Stress introduces us to the fairy godmother from hell. Things are tense at MSI with spies in the mix, a havoc wreaking fairy godmother and more secrets surrounding Owen, Katie once again has her hands full. The Bad: Honestly, I’m not overly fond of the ending of Damsel and when I first read it, I thought Katie was insane. Also, there’s a very slow build to the relationship between Katie and Owen, which feels a little drawn out, but all in all, Damsel is a fun read and a continuation of a fascinating tale. The Good: I love the dragons, more hilarious situations from bad dates to a church full of crazy women trying to steal Owen for their daughters and of course, the gargoyles. I know I mentioned the talking gargoyles in my review for Enchanted, Inc., but we get to go for a ride with more gargoyles in Damsel
