When cruel Prince Dorian’s grain collector leaves the village of Mottle with so little grain that they face starvation over the coming winter, only thirteen year old Keth is prepared to do anything about it. His attempt to steal back the grain goes wrong, and he only escapes capture by joining a band of traveling players as their apprentice fool.
The troupe is heading for the capital where rebels are plotting the overthrow of Prince Dorian. As Keth works to develop his natural talent as a fool, he discovers he has an unwanted gift; he can see the terrifying wraiths that haunt the wounded land. Can Keth keep his audience laughing long enough to join the rebels and bring down the prince or will the sinister wraiths get to him first?
Apprentice Fool is book one in the Nobody’s Fool Quartet, a tale of comedy and adventure.
