Hey everyone. It has been AWHILE since I wrote any review posts. But not to fear for I have a plan. Or a schedule. I just need to learn to stick to it and get things scheduled out a little further than a day before. Since almost all of my followers still use wordpress/bloglovin to follow I will be dual posting. Using both this platform and my new one until I can get the new one up and running a bit smoother.
Without further ado. Fable!
About the Book:
For seventeen-year-old Fable, the daughter of the most powerful trader in the Narrows, the sea is the only home she 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.
I cannot get enough of this book. I have been a fan of the author since Sky in the Deep released. I may even go as far as to say this was my best read this year.
Our heroine Fable has gone through a lot but dang if she isn’t a fighter. Plus there is actual growth in the story. Even if the naïve girl still ends up a bit naïve. That gives us the plot for the second part of the story Namesake which comes out next year!
The slow-burn romance is pretty normal for Adrienne Young and the story really doesn’t revolve around too much. Instead relying on world building and the plot.
The master storytelling and weaving of so many elements was just well done. I I cannot wait to see what happens in the second book. It cannot come soon enough!
If you haven’t read this one yet what are you waiting for?
