Rate this:
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..

Wonderful read. Russian fairytales and mermaids, with a jinn and a mention of Japanese fairytale. Has mature subject matter.

Awesome addition to the series.

Some slightly more mature scenes than seen in any of the other 500 Kingdoms books.

Another of Mercedes Lackey's wonderful twisted fairytales, this one hinting at more Russian fairytales and mermaids, of course.
Katya (Ekaterina) is a gifted young woman who lives underwater but can travel on land. Sasha, a prince who's role as defined by The Tradition is as a Fool who brings luck to his home, and is a musician.
But when their paths cross? That's where the fun begins.

This is the third book in the 500 Kingdoms series. Sasha and Ekaterina both work secretly to aid their kingdoms. Ekaterina is kidnapped after meeting Sasha, but she is no damsel in distress- and neither are the other kidnapped girls after a few days with her.
This was not as good as the first book in the series, but still an enjoyable read. Lots of action, some romance, and a little smuttiness.

A fun addition to the 500 Kingdoms group of tales. We see some familiar dragons, and meet an princess who has the most freedom so far..... she is her fathers spy. Leads to some fun adventures. A good quick read.
