This review was originally posted on Once Upon a ChapterI received this book for free from NetGalley, Personal Collection in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

I decided to read Fable by Adrienne Young because I really enjoyed Sky in the Deep. I didn't love The Girl the Sea Gave Back as much. When I heard Young had a new release I had to give it a shot! The title really caught my attention and I wanted to know which way I would land after reading Fable.

I really wasn't sure how Young was going to be able to pull what I thought the plot of Fable was through such a long book. At first I thought it was going to be thing A was the end goal, then I moved to thing B....then thing C.

Young lured me in to a false sense of resolution multiple times. I'm not even mad about it. Young took the best thing about Sky in the Deep which for me was immersive, descriptive, and beautiful writing and put it in the fast moving plot of Fable.

Fable is a girl looking to belong. She's not very trusting and I don't think anyone can blame her. I really loved the crew of the Marigold. They make no bones about doing what needs to be done to survive.

The rest of the cast of characters have memorable personalities. There are no excess characters. Each one has an important role to play.

The writing in Fable is what really made it shine. I felt like I could have been on that ship with Fable. I loved it and I can't wait for the sequel to come out in March!

Fable is the daughter of the most powerful trader in the Narrows. Now seventeen, she has spent the last four years on Jeval -- an island notorious for thieves and little food -- doing everything she can to scrape together enough money to return to her father and get what she has earned: a place on his crew. She enlists help from West, a young trader who she has been trading pyre with for the last two years. But she soon finds West is not who he seems, and her father's enemies have grown more numerous in the last few years. To survive, she must learn to trust West and his crew.

This was my third Adrienne Young book I have read (after Sky in the Deep and The Girl the Sea Gave Back), and it was my favorite of the three. This book was really good, and so much darker than I anticipated. Fable is a tough character, and I really liked her. She was a little naive, but also tough and strong after her time on Jeval. The plot was really well-told, the other characters were really fleshed out, and the story itself was exciting. The only thing I didn't quite like was the romance -- it did feel a little sudden (though it was obvious that's where it was going) -- but overall it made sense, and I like those two characters together.

The ending left on a cliffhanger, and I can't wait to dive into the sequel!

Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin's Press for an eARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own. ( )

Series Info/Source: I borrowed this ebook from my Library. This is the first book in the Fable duology. Previous to reading this I read Young’s “Sky in the Deep” duology which I enjoyed.

Story (5/5): This was an amazing fantasy adventure story about the daughter, named Fable, of a powerful trader. Her father leaves her on a cutthroat island to survive after a horrible shipwreck. When Fable’s finally scraped together enough money to leave the island she ends up on a treasure hunt while dodging various baddies. It’s a very well done story that is fast-paced, has some really interesting yet subtle magic, and is somehow very heartfelt as well. I absolutely loved this story and was completely engrossed in it.

Characters (5/5): Fable is one tough girl. It’s hard not to love her because she is so tough, yet still finds room to care about the people around her and be loyal to them. The crew she joins on the ship Marigold is amazing as well. They all have a lot of depth to them and have very detailed back stories. They are fun characters to adventure with and characters I grew to love spending time with.

Setting (5/5): This book jumps between different islands, ships, and trading towns. They are all well described and easy to picture. I loved the locations because I felt like I was actually on the adventure with Fable, the scenes and settings just really come alive!

Writing Style (5/5): I enjoyed Young’s “Sky in the Deep” duology but this book was so much better. Young has certainly found her writing stride here. The pacing is perfect, the descriptions of surroundings are phenomenal and make the settings easy to picture, the characterization was incredibly well done, and I loved the story. I am on a huge adventure fantasy kick right now and this book definitely hit the mark. I could not put this down and stayed up way too late reading it. Everything about this was flawless.

My Summary (5/5): Overall this was an amazing fantasy adventure read that I adored. I can’t wait to read the follow-up book “Namesake” which should be out as of the time of this review posting. I would strongly recommend this to fans of fantasy adventure, especially pirating types of adventure stories. This book was so hard to put down and just such a pleasure to read. ( )

Fable is an interesting, dynamic character and, in this book, my favorite character to follow. She has sneaky plots but has a good sense of when things need to happen fast. I love her backstory and how she makes a unique connection to each crew member of the Maidenship. The ending of this book, i.e. the cliffhanger I feared once I saw how close I was getting to the end, was really well written, so I'm not mad. Just eager for the next book.

This book is a good representation of how YA fic is changing and growing, and I like the direction it is heading. I think it is worth the read. ( )

Fable was born and raised on the sea. The daughter of a notorious trader father and a dredger mother—someone who dives for precious gems hidden beneath the water’s surface—Fable was stranded by her father the day after a storm sunk their ship and killed nearly everyone on board.

Now, four years later, Fable wants more than anything to get back to her father. To show him she’s a survivor, and to get what he promised her when he abandoned her. She enlists the help of the Marigold and its helmsman West to get her back to her father, but the journey through the Narrows will prove more difficult than she bargained for. Her father’s business enterprise has grown exponentially since she’s been away, and so has his list of enemies, and Fable begins to questions the secrets West and his crew are determined to keep close to the chest.

Adrienne Young has now done for the swashbuckling pirate story what she did for Vikings in her debut Sky in the Deep. She has a penchant for writing solitary characters who find themselves in precarious situations, often fighting for their lives, but injects so much heart and perseverance into the story that I cannot help but compulsively read.

Fable is another such heroine. I loved her characterization, all the characterizations really. This is a world where you look out for yourself and any and all connections, relationships, loyalties are dangerous because they show vulnerability to any and all that would expose such. Fable herself would use someone else’s vulnerability if it meant saving her life or the lives of the people she cares about, but you also know that she’s not unnecessarily cruel. It’s an interesting dynamic.

One that is especially highlighted in the interactions between Fable and Saint—her father whom she’s discouraged from claiming. Typically, I would find a father who abandons his young daughter to fend for herself or die trying rather abhorrent. But in Adrienne Young’s hands he becomes a man who has lived too long in his role and has lost so much along the way. Their relationship is so rocky, yet I cannot help but see glimpses of love that are overshadowed by fear of losing again. It’s something I hope we see develop more in the sequel.

Not to be outdone of course is the tentative alliance between West and his crew of the Marigold. I loved this small group of traders each with their own story who have grown into this quasi-family due to the fact that they rely upon each other to pull their weight and do their job on the ship. Fable kind of thrusts herself into their orbit by enlisting their help, and as much as she tries, she can’t keep herself from being curious about this crew. But in the Narrows it’s a curiosity that could cost someone their life. So proceed with caution.

I’m just going to say it: Fable ends on a pretty major cliffhanger. I was just thinking how it’s been awhile since a book has ended in such a way where I felt that gut punch, but I felt it here. Luckily, its sequel Namesake will be out in March with plenty of mysteries left to unravel. Not too long to wait. Right? ( )
