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. .
You know when you are eating a good piece of cake and you don't want to finish the last bite because you know nothing will ever be as wonderful as that last bite until you have more next time? That's how I felt while reading Fable by Adrienne Young, I did not want to finish this story at all.

Fable, the main character, is someone who had to adapt to her new surroundings, in four years she learned to survive, trade, and outsmart others, all with a goal of one day having enough coins to secure passage off the island. Things escalate faster than Fable had planned but she doesn't waste any time in getting things done. One of the things that stood out about Fable was her resilience, her mother died and her father left her there; life threw her curveballs and knocked her down but she still kept going.

I enjoy stories about crews so when Fable left the island with West and his crew I was beyond excited to see how the relationship dynamics between them all would be and I was not disappointed. Also have to mention that learning about the side characters and their stories was just as important as Fable's.

Adrienne Young is a pirate, there I said it, she captured the pirate life flawlessy, it never felt forced or fake, it was smooth sailing while I was reading. Fable is her best book so far and definitely my favorite, I couldn't get enough of the characters, the high stakes, and the sea.

Even though, the last page has a cliffhanger, I was left with a huge smile on my face, I really loved this story and hope that this year moves faster so I can get my grabby hands on the sequel, Namesake.
