Book Review

FORTUNE'S FOOL
by Mercedes Lackey

Genre: Fantasy, General Fantasy

RT Rating

The latest entry in Lackey's series of fairy tale reinterpretations is a quick and enchanting book that fans of the series will devour. Katya's an independent and intelligent heroine, and while her adventures are a bit predictable, a few hours spent with her will be worthwhile.

Katya is the seventh daughter of the Sea King and has a special gift for moving around on land that enables her to provide information to her father. While investigating the kingdom of Led Belarus, she meets Sasha, the seventh son of the king and a Fortunate Fool, whose role it is to bring luck to his father's kingdom.

They fall in love, but just as
things are looking rosy, the tradition steps in and intervenes. Katya is kidnapped and trapped in a castle with other captive princesses. She must rely on her wits and cleverness -- as well
as Sasha and his marvelous luck -- in order to escape and live happily ever after. (Luna, Mar., 368 pp., $24.95)
