Book Review: Fortune’s Fool

The cover art for this series never does the books justice. Book: Fortune’s Fool

 

Author: Mercedes Lackey

Recommend: This was another fun read with one slight reservation.

Third book in the series and it is still going strong. This one centers around the daughter of a Sea King and Prince. There are Jinn, shape shifters, Baba Yaga, plus tons more that I couldn’t begin to list. I love the diversity of characters available in these books. They seem to take things from every set of fairy tales and myths. I loved the very oriental themed section near the beginning of the book because it gave a tste of yet another side of fairy tales.

The only complaint I have about this one is that there are a couple of scenes that are not suited to anyone under the age of eighteen. This is the first sign of this I have come across in these books but honestly the readers really do get the idea. They don’t need all the details.

Other than that, it was a lot of fun to read – so much so that I stayed up most of the night to finish it.
