Fable book review by Adrienne Young a Young Adult novel.
Hi, it’s Emmalynn! This was my first Adrienne Young read and it surpassed all my expectations. I’ve wanted to read Fable ever since it came out (mainly because of the cover if I’m being honest), but it quickly became one of my all time favorite books. Fable has it all: crime, romance, pirates, mafia, and a seascape setting. I mean, how could it get any better?!
As far as characters go I’d rate this about 4/5 stars. I love the characters in this book. The protagonists, antagonists, and side characters all drew me deeper into the Narrows. However,I have a few unanswered questions about the characters, but overall I loved them. Sometimes side characters have the same bland personalities, but I was just as invested in the side characters as I was Fable. Also I enjoyed seeing Fable and Saint’s (Fable’s father) relationship grow throughout this book as well as Fable and West’s.
I always love books with new worlds and perspectives. It was fun to imagine Fable as a dredger deep into the ocean and her and West’s crew trading cargo for coin in the ports of the Narrows. Adrienne did a great job making Fable feel real. You saw her internal struggles, such as having to choose between her friends and family, the feeling of heartbreak, and wondering if life was ever gonna get better.
If you are thinking about checking out this book I would highly recommend it! I look forward to reading some of Adrienne Young’s other books. My fingers are crossed for a book to tv adaptation. Overall I would rate Fable by Adrienne Young in its entirety 5/5 stars.
I gave Fable an age rating of 13 and up. There is violence and some language.
