I had the pleasure of reading this book along with a bunch of lovely ladies over on Instagram as a buddy read. Fable by Adrienne Young is rereleased today by Titan Books.
About the book
We meet Fable four years after her mother was drowned in a shipwreck and her father left her on an island to fend for herself. It’s an island where you have to keep your wits about you, a place you could never call home, a place that is dangerous. Fable has spent the four years dredging, making and saving money to be able to leave the island and return to her father.
Things are never that simple though and Fable has many battles to fight along the way, she has to prove her worth and in doing so a fantastic character has been born. Fable is only 17 but god does she have balls, she’s feisty, determined and down right gutsy. I loved her.
The story is actually full of fantastic characters whether you love them or loathe them they certainly come to life.
I adored the setting for Fable, Adrienne Young has written a story filled with detail which makes it so easy to visualise. I’d love this to be made into a film or tv series. That would absolutely make my day.
With a hint of romance, danger, many obstacles to over come and masterfully crafted characters this was a gripping read. I was totally drawn into this story and when it ended I felt bereft, thank goodness it’s not too long until the sequel, Namesake is released.
I’ll definitely be recommending Fable to all, it’s a story I can’t wait to reread and it’s a definite 5 stars from me.
