Fable by Adrienne Young | A Book Review

Fable by Adriene Young

I took so long to read this book or should I say listen to this book. I was waiting for the perfect time but to be honest there is no such thing as the perfect time. One day last week I just pressed the play button and started listening to this Book. Once I started I could not stop. This is the first book in The World of Narrow Series written by Adrienne Young. This series is a duology focusing on Story of Fable, a young girl trying to escape a ruthless island and going back to her father who left her 4 years ago. This is the book is about: "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."

Young Adult Fantasy Fiction Adventure


Easy to Read

Multilayered Characters

☙ Traders, Ships and Pirates
☙ Slow Burn
☙ Found Family
☙ He Fell first and she did not know
☙ Search for lost treasure
☙ It reminded me of Pirates of Caribbean and Six of Crows


So I should start from the point when i saw the cover of the book. I fell in love instantly. I do not particularly like people on the book covers but look at the cover man......she is so beautiful....gorgeous 🤌. This was love at first sight though.  

I did not know the story, I did not looked at Goodreads description I added it my TBR and as soon as I had access to audiobook so i just started listening to it. The book gave major vibes of Six of Crows. That is why I liked it more. It was same camaraderie, friendships, a crew, a debt to pay, a heist(sort of), search for treasure in the long lost ship wreck, and a cutthroat world where you gotta fight to survive.

For those of you who want's a story about Fable who lost both of her parents 4 years ago. A storm came and her mother died in a shipwreck and her father was lost to a broken heart of loosing his wife. He leave Fable on an island and promise her if she survives he will give her what is hers.

Now after 4 years Fable is on the path to return to her Father. She barter a passage on Marigold and throughout the book she form bonds and friendships. She meets her father and get disappointed then go on more adventures while making hell of lot of enemies.

On the whole....the book was a great read. I will give it 4 stars.. I recommend it ofcourse.

Best Quotes

“Isolde was the wind and sea and sky of Saint's world. She was the pattern of stars that he navigated by, the sum of all directions on his compass. And he was lost without her.”

“Home was a ship that was at the bottom of the sea, where my mother's bones lay sleeping.”
“you weren't made for this world, Fable.”
“What I want is not to die alone," she said, her voice suddenly small. "I didn't really choose this life. It's just the only one I have...”
“We both know that surviving means sometimes doing things that haunt you.”
“That was one of Saint's rules.
Nothing is free.
He wasn't just talking about food or passage or the clothes on your back. He was talking about respect. Safety. Protection. They were things no one owed.
And one way or another, you always paid"
“My mother had loved Saint with a love that could set fire to the sea”
