Synopsis: "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.
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."
My Review: After only two books by Adrienne Young, I have really come to trust her writing to be everything I love, so I jumped at the opportunity to read this one. Fable did not disappoint! I love how rich and vivid this world is, you can completely picture it as you read. I also love how different this book is from her previous two, I loved the brutal, each for themselves pirate world in this book (just as much as I loved the brutal, honor bound viking world). Fable lives and does what must be done to survive but there is one thing she wants, a family. This was quite the adventure in finding and giving trust, overcoming the odds and what is worth the sacrifice. Be forewarned, the ending is quite the cliffhanger! I am dying for Namesake!!
My Rating: This book met all my expectations and more! It was an enthralling read, the pages fly by, you have to know what happens next! I loved the characters and want so much more. I give it a rating of Four Paws!
I received a complimentary copy of this book via Netgalley. The above is my honest review and opinion.
