Review – Fable by: Adrienne Young

Synopsis: Welcome to a world made dangerous by the sea and by those who wish to profit from it. Where a young girl must find her place and her family while trying to survive in a world built for men.

As the daughter of the most powerful trader in the Narrows, the sea is the only home seventeen-year-old Fable has ever known. It’s been four years since the night she watched her mother drown during an unforgiving storm. The next day her father abandoned her on a legendary island filled with thieves and little food. To survive she must keep to herself, learn to trust no one and rely on the unique skills her mother taught her. The only thing that keeps her going is the goal of getting off the island, finding her father and demanding her rightful place beside him and his crew. To do so Fable enlists the help of a young trader named West to get her off the island and across the Narrows to her father.

But her father’s rivalries and the dangers of his trading enterprise have only multiplied since she last saw him and Fable soon finds that West isn’t who he seems. Together, they will have to survive more than the treacherous storms that haunt the Narrows if they’re going to stay alive.

Oh my gosh. This is the BEST book I have read this year, hands down. Adrienne Young weaves secrets, darkness, haunting moments, dangerous seas, and essentially glorified pirates all in one. Fable is fast-paced and vicious and I lived for every second.

The world that Fable is set in is just so gritty. There’s really no other word for it. It is definitely a eat or get eaten type of world. I adored the islands, the sea, the trading, and everything in between. Yet at the same time, you have so much hope for Fable and our characters throughout the whole book.

Adrienne Young also has the perfect way of weaving sexy tension without there being any action. There are so many read between the lines moments that just made my blood boil in the best way. I adored each and every character we meet, even the ones that you’re supposed to hate. They’re all developed so perfectly and meticulously into the story.

I had a feeling the ending would be something like we got. I’m super curious, slightly devastated, and way too excited for Namesake. Adrienne crushed this novel and everyone should be pre-ordering this yesterday!
