Publisher's Summary

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.
