あらすじ・解説

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 and 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.

Just an outline of a story, characters thin

The premise didn't make sense. A girl getting dumped on a island with an incentive if you can make it out I'll give you something, though I won't tell you what, till you make it. Honestly this was more like an outline of a story. There was no depth to the characters and relationships felt unnatural and thin. To me it seemed like the bones of a book I've read before.

The plot was literally non existent or maybe it was there but I just didn't care. The worst was Fable's inner thoughts which were utterly repeative. 'Nothing comes free.' 'Don't show who you care about.' I would say this was all predictable but nothing happened although that could still be predicted. Fable was a gem sage. I can't spoil this and tell you about it because I don't know myself. Was there other magics? Was this even magic? Don't know that either. Not that I recall anything of importance ever being explained here.

For some reason Iv gotten in a groove were space operas and pirate books excite me. So when Fable was diving and describing her surroundings I was in bliss, then for the rest of the book I wasn't. With a barely there plot and thin characters, nothing gripped me. Also while reading I had the distinct impression that I was waiting for something.......the entire time. A shocking twist, maybe even a plot. I trudged on waiting but nothing came. This truly could have been a standalone except for the cliffhanger. Another sad thing was the map was so sparse. Even though this takes place in the sea not much of it is explored. If it's not obvious I won't be continuing.

Ugh

I read the reviews and I have read popular YA in the past, I purchased the book. The reader was just blah, making it hard to connect with the story. The one word that comes to mind is Dreary. The story, performance and overall lifeless.

Disappointed

I can’t quite put my finger on why I wasn’t entertained. I was so hopeful for a YA that would add some lightness to my library. This was not the one.

Good story, ok narrator

I liked the story of Fable a lot, a YA fantasy set on the sea. Lysy did a fine job as the narrator, but I felt like she could have used a bit more emotion. However, I still enjoyed listening and thought the story was very cool.

Leaves you wanting more

I did NOT realize this was the first in a series. I enjoyed the book completely and the writer does an amazing job pulling you into that world.... however, it’s left on a major cliff hanger which makes me crazy. I like a book to be a bit more complete.
