be one of my favorites from her Five Hundred Kingdoms series Moral of the story Don t judge a book based on the fairytaleor something.My reason for liking the book may be based on the fact that, unlike in some of Lackey s other books, the hero in this one isn t a total douchebag I found it refreshing Fortunes Fool is based off of some Russian fairytale that I had no idea even existed, so I
