Series Info/Source: This is the second book in the Fable duology. I bought this for my Kindle.

Story (5/5): This story was so good. Fable starts out the book as a prisoner to one of her father’s ex-thugs. Her kidnapping leads to a surprise from her past that she never could have guessed. There is a lot of amazing adventure, as well surprising twists and turns, and some intriguing intrigue in this book. Everyone around her seems to have secrets and she needs to survive both the unveiling of these secrets and her adventures to finally find peace.

Characters (5/5): This continues to have amazing characterization throughout the book. We learn some stunning secrets about nearly every character and there is a lot of character growth as well. I loved the characters in this story; they are so human and yet so hopeful.

Setting (5/5): We journey to a new part of the world in this book and it is just as amazing as all the places we visited in the first book. I continue to really love the description of the settings when Fable is doing free dives in the ocean. The description in here is excellent and settings really come alive for the reader.

Writing Style (5/5): This book is effortless to read, the writing flows beautifully and the amazing description makes the whole world really come alive. Everything about the writing here is perfection. I really enjoyed Young’s “Sky in the Deep” series as well. There is just something about Young’s writing style that really works well for me. I do think that this Fable series was a step up in quality from the “Sky in the Deep” series.

My Summary (5/5): Overall I really loved both this book and this whole duology. This was awesome young adult adventure fantasy at its best. The description, the world, the characters, the adventure...all of it was amazing. I would definitely recommend it to those who enjoy adventure fantasy. I can’t wait to see what Young comes up with next!! ( )

Namesake by Adrienne Young is the second half of a fabulous duology involving one of the toughest heroines you will ever meet. Fable is not just physically tough, but she has the mental fortitude to go up against the most heartless of merchants/mercenaries. This time around, we get to see Fable pit her wits against even more cutthroats and ruthless characters, and she doesn’t disappoint.

After a year of not going anywhere, the tropical setting of Namesake is enough to instill wanderlust in even the most agoraphobic of readers, and what a setting it is. Ms. Young brings the tropics to you with gorgeous descriptive passages that makes you want to find an old schooner and learn how to sail.

Namesake is exactly what you want in the end of a character’s story. Ms. Young closes out Fable’s story with numerous big reveals and clever twists, enough to keep you on your toes and prevent you from guessing how it all will end. At the same time, she makes sure to provide readers with closure, finishing Fable’s journey to find where she belongs in a way that is satisfying as well as enjoyable. Everyone gets what they deserve, even if it isn’t quite what you expect. I highly recommend both Fable and Namesake for the story, for the setting, and most definitely for Fable herself. ( )

At the end of Fable, the title character thought she had finally gotten what she wanted. She had a boat, a crew that was beginning to become family and growing feelings for West.

But of course Saint’s daughter wasn’t going to go free so easily. Fable quickly finds herself kidnapped and caught up in a plot with new and powerful forces fighting for control of the Narrows. And Fable’s bloodline becomes more important than she ever dreamed.

Oh, Fable. She’s headstrong, tough and willing to take risks and wheel and deal to get the future she wants. She refuses to be the pawn in anyone’s game, even though everyone tries to use her in theirs. She’s willing to risk love - both familial love with Saint and romantic love with West - even knowing how much it can hurt. She’s a character you love to cheer on through the twists and turns of her story.

And then there’s West, who wants to love Fable with his whole heart, even as he struggles with the darkness within and without. He’s the perfect fantasy bad boy turning good again. And his crew finds their bonds tested throughout this book.

The sequel to Fable is thrilling and action-packed, with the twists and turns coming so fast that sometimes it’s hard to keep up. Each new reveal surprised me, and nothing about this book was what I’d thought it would be going in. My only complaint is that I want a third book so I can spend more time with Fable and West.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the advance review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. ( )

Disclaimer: I received this book for free from NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Namesake was, in a word, underwhelming.

I loved the atmosphere and the edge of adventure in Fable – it’s what made the book such a winner for me in 2020. Namesake suffered from a lot of quick turns and shallow plot lines. I got the overall sense that there was a lot of different things that Young wanted to do in this book, and rather than just pick one, she tried them all. I suppose for some perspectives the shifting plot direction could be categorized as a twist, but for me, they were too anticlimactic for that.

We start with one of our baddies from Fable who kidnaps our girl for some nefarious purpose. His treatment of her super casual, like “hey, thanks for being on my ship, now you’re in charge of a thing!”. This whole introductory bit is quickly shown as irrelevant as its a vehicle to get us to the real villain of Namesake, but for me, it felt like a lot of wasted time. Once we get to real purpose, there’s still a dance between goals, and most of the plotting happens off the page. While I understand this is intended so Young could do a grand reveal later in the book, for the reader, it felt a little all over the place. I knew things were happening behind the scenes, but I felt like nothing was happening on the page, and I got bored.

Our characters haven’t grown since Fable, either. The ways they have changed are abrupt and awkward – displayed as announcements or rambling intentions. The romance really fumbles for me, too. I know much of the community really enjoys this aspect of the duology, but I thought the romance was barely present in Fable (which I liked). In Namesake, romance takes up a lot more space, and I still don’t feel the chemistry between the two characters. Certainly not at a level that explains some of their choices.

My favorite part of this book was the repaired relationship between two of the characters near the end, although that, too, stumbled and felt awkward. Overall, Namesake lacked the elements that made Fable special – focusing too much on trade routes and maritime politics and grand gestures than the intimacy of the sea and the Marigold’s crew. I’m sure my take on this book will be an unpopular one, but I think Namesake is overhyped and under-delivered. ( )

Fable will learn some shocking information. If you read the last book you know she was left a bit stranded. Well that does not go well for her, and it gets worse. She might have to sell her soul to save something she loves. There is so much in the balance and she has no idea of what’s being played.
Fable has grown up a lot since the first book. She’s not so soft in this book, good thing too because she needs to be. It was coming at Fable trying take her down all through the book. If they didn’t want to own her, they wanted to use her, lie to her and manipulate her. The past was not the truth she thought it was, oh the lies !
West, he is not the man he appeared to be. I still struggle with the relationship. I never did get where it grew from but it’s there and strong. He revealed himself more and what is shown isn’t pretty. I’m still on the fence on him, he reads a bit obsessive to me. We’ll see
I really enjoyed this book much more than book 1. In that book I struggled believing in these characters.This one was more evolved. The action was intense, and believable. The struggles were heartbreaking and the moments of joy heartwarming. I look forward for the next book in the series
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher for an honest review ( )
