Publisher's Summary

A Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club YA Pick

Filled with all of the action, emotion, and lyrical writing that brought audiences to Sky in the Deep, New York Times best-selling author Adrienne Young returns with Fable, the first audiobook 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 17-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.

"Gripping, immersive, and absolutely masterful, Fable reels you in with the promise of beauty, and holds you tight with Young’s signature grit. I couldn’t turn the pages quickly enough." (Adalyn Grace, New York Times best-selling author of All the Stars and Teeth

"I could taste the salt in the air and feel the waves beneath the Marigold. In a brutal world Fable shines as tenacious yet vulnerable, unafraid to do what she must to survive. This story caught me by the throat and refused to let go!" (Shelby Mahurin, New York Times best-selling author of Serpent & Dove

lackluster

Beautiful world building. Beautiful detailing but.....the story itself? I expected more. I'm just kind of not impressed. Especially with how much hype I was hearing about this book. There is like one and a half action scenes. The flash backs were more interesting than the main character. BUT with the final word in this book she got my interest, because now I need to know how.

I need book 2

I loved it. Fable's desire for a family and sense of safety was so well written and so relatable I actually cried a few times listening to this at work. The world that the story is set in is well crafted and compelling in a familiar way if you've read seafaring stories before, but with a freshness that kept it interesting. The narrator had a great voice for the story. I am dying for book 2. I need it.
