#BookReview: Namesake (Fable #2) by Adrienne Young






Synopsis: 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.

With the Marigold ship free of her father, Fable and the rest of the crew were set to start over. That freedom is short-lived when Fable becomes a pawn in a notorious thug’s scheme. 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.

My Review: Ok so this one had me from the first pages. I loved that it picked up where book one left off and that I had it on hand after finishing Fable.  Sadly, though about half way through to the end I felt that the story lost its luster.  I think that these stories would have been much better if they would have been tossed together into one story which I turn would have sped up Namesake.  I did finish it but parts of it were just so slow I found myself skimming.  I will of course check out The Last Legacy because I am invested.  







Review

"[A] richly imagined maritime world... Fans of the first volume will be pleased with this duology closer." Kirkus Reviews

“An exciting, fast-paced ride that will ultimately satisfy those that stepped on board the Marigold with Fable last year...There’s plenty to love about this sequel: Its relentless pace keeps the story feeling as though something new and dramatic is happening on every page.” ―Culturess 

“Fans of the first book will recognize this seaswept world of ruthless criminals and daring adventure, and they’ll be satisfied to see Fable and West, noble, flawed, and devoted to each other and their crew, find their place in it.” ―The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

“A stunning conclusion to an enthralling YA fantasy duology.” ―Young Adults Book Central
