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.
Four years after her father, an infamous merchant captain, abandoned her on a lawless island, auburn-haired Fable, now 18, is ready to escape her unwanted exile. When plans go awry, though, she's forced to barter passage aboard the Marigold, a trading vessel captained by the enigmatic West, whose crew has little time or patience for passengers. Even after demonstrating her skills as a diver and gem sage, Fable is slow to find her place amid the secretive, tight-knit crew. Following a disappointing reunion with her father, now one of the most powerful men in the region, Fable's only hope at finding acceptance is to convince West and his crew to help her seek out a long-lost, potentially lucrative shipwreck in the most dangerous part of the Unnamed Sea. Young (The Girl the Sea Gave Back) blends adventure and intrigue in this lush nautical duology opener, crafting a flinty world in which danger lurks at every turn and showing affection is a sign of weakness. Memorable characters reinforce the theme of found family, while a slow-burning romance adds a tense undercurrent that leads to the cliffhanger ending. Ages 12 up. \n
