Trader. Fighter. Survivor.

In order to get to her intended destination she must help him to secure a partnership with Holland, a powerful gem trader who is more than she seems.

As Fable descends deeper into a world of betrayal and deception, she learns that the secrets her mother took to her grave are now putting the people Fable cares about in danger. If Fable is going to save them then she must risk everything, including the boy she loves and the home she has finally found.


Thank you St. Martin’s Press, Wednesday Books, and NetGalley for an ARC of this book.

Namesake is the perfect conclusion of the duology Fable by Adrienne Young. I loved Namesake more than Fable.  You can read my review of Fable. I loved the complex relationship between Fable and her father, Saint.

We were salt and sand and sea and storm.
We were made in the Narrows.

Namesake stars with Fable being on the board of Luna and she are surrounded by enemies and she can’t trust anyone. She also discovered that someone betrayed her and her father or seems like that. Being Kidnapped is a test of survival for Fable and now she had to find a way to escape from this boat and to go back to West and to the crew of Marigold. She found a way to survive and to protect the people she loves. I n this book, Fable found out secrets about her mother Isolde, and her mother’s family.

“Fable, I love you,” he breathed, still staring at my feet.” I don’t want to do any of this without you.

The relationship between West and Fable evolve and they fought for their relationship and to stay together. They worked as a team and they were willing to sacrifice for each other. I loved their relationship and how much West was willing to sacrifice to protect Fable and to be with her.

Namesake by Adrienne Young is a book full of secrets adventure, twists, friendship, family, and love. I loved that Fable and Saint had an honest discussion. I loved the relationship between Fable, West, and the crew of Marigold. I loved Namesake and I recommend to everyone this duology.
