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!
