Description

The seventh daughter of the Sea King, Ekaterina is more than a pampered princess - she's also the family spy. Which makes her the perfect emissary to check out interesting happenings in the neighboring kingdom...and nothing interests her more than Sasha, the seventh son of the king of Belrus. Ekaterina suspects he's far from the fool people think him. But before she can find out what lies beneath his facade, she is kidnapped!

Trapped in a castle at the mercy of a possessive Jinn, Ekaterina knows her chances of being found are slim. Now fortune, a fool, and a paper bird are the only things she can count on - along with her own clever mind and intrepid heart....

Very slow start.

What did you love best about Fortune's Fool?

Gabra Zackman's reading is excellent, as always.

If you’ve listened to books by Mercedes Lackey before, how does this one compare?

Of the 500 Kingdoms books, this is my least favorite so far. I am, however, only halfway through. I usually devour them in a few days, but I've been listening to this one off and on for weeks. The beginning doesn't necessarily drag, but you don't get into the meat of the plot until the second half of the book. The first half of the book seems to be completely different from the second half, where the real plot begins. I keep listening to it and then switching to something else because I get absolutely bored. It's also the most sexually explicit of this series so far, which is something to think about when you're listening to it at home with a child wandering around the house!

Which scene was your favorite?

Nothing so far

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. It's been a struggle.

Addicted to this series!

I love these stories, each is very loosely based upon a fairy tale. This one is The Little Mermaid because of a mermaid and a land guy, however that is the only similarity. These books are easy to listen to and have creative plots.

Fun read

Mercedes has another light, fun read based on classic folk tales with her own unique spin from Russia and Sergei

Narration Inconsistency

The hero has a Russian name as do his family. His culture is Russian. The food and clothing is Russian. His father has a Russian accent. But the narrator doesn't perform a Russian accent for him. It makes no sense. He just has a generic American accent.

Adult fairytale

A fun engaging fairytale and well read. I really loved it but could have done with less graphic sex.

Surprising

I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the Jinn has the same ideas about hiding things as Madam Hecuba. Only a few people are going to get that reference so it's not really a spoiler.

can not wait to download the next one!

lovely story telling of a delightful twist on clasic tales.
plenty of variety of tone and accent made it easy to know which character was speaking each time she switched

Love the series, but not this one

So I have read books 1, 2, 4 and 5 and loved them, but this one, I don't know. I've tried a few times and had to stop. I've heard it gets more interesting in the second half and one day I might try it again. We'll see. If you like the 500 kingdoms, don't let this throw you off the series, but maybe give this one a pass.
