Filled with all of the action, emotion, and lyrical writing that brought readers to Sky in the Deep, New York Times bestselling author Adrienne Young returns with Fable, the first book in this new captivating duology.

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. 

Fable takes you on a spectacular journey filled with romance, intrigue and adventure.


What’s a recent read that swept you off your feet? Mine is FABLE by Adrienne Young. I love Adrienne’s Sky In The Deep. Fable is another one of her books I have completely fallen in love with. 

Fable was captivating and a book I couldn’t put down. This story has all the elements I love; action, romance, intrigue, danger, characters whose stories I want to know more of, and a strong willed main character I absolutely loved getting to know. Fable is a strong willed character who doesn’t give up. She’s a survivor, a fighter and someone who will stop at nothing to protect those she comes to care about. 

This book's setting was fabulous. I love a good high seas setting. This book's setting is on board a ship at sea, an island, and at port. It's definitely a dangerous world, but one Fable knows how to navigate all too well. Young's writing is so vivid, that it's easy to picture Fable's world, and the characters who make up her story. 

I loved this book! This book is further proof why Adrienne Young is one of my auto buy authors. I am so glad there is a sequel, Namesake, which will be out on 3/16/21.
