Book Review of Adrienne Youngs’ Novel Namesake.
Hi, its Emmalynn! Namesake, as you may or may not know, is a sequel to Adrienne Young’s young adult novel Fable. Like Fable, we get a variety of genres in this book: crime, romance, suspense, mystery, a seascape setting, and mafia vibes. Also like Fable, this book did not disappoint. However, I am sad that this is just a duology because I could read about Fable and West forever.
I love it when sequels pick up right where the first novel leaves off. It makes you feel like you are instantly transported back into the story and world in which the characters live in. I loved all the characters in Fable and was excited to learn more about them as well as new characters in Namesake. In Namesake you learn more about Isolde and Saint’s past.
Adrienne Young’s writing is so amazing and the pacing in this book was great. While many sequels are known as being a disappointment, compared to the first book I feel like Namesake lived up to Fable. I don’t want to post any spoilers but I wasn’t ready for the amount of turns and surprises this book had. You truly never knew what was coming.
I loved this book and overall enjoyed this series altogether. Fable was such a great character and I can’t wait to see if they make it a tv show. This book, as well as duology in it’s entirety I would rate 5/5 stars. I hope you enjoyed my book review of Adrienne Youngs’ Novel Namesake.
Along with the first book Fable, I gave Namesake an age rating of 13 and up.
