Cue the Pirates of the Caribbean soundtrack. I am obsessed with all things sea, pirates, and ships after reading Fable and Namesake. In case it wasn’t evident, these books go together and are best read back-to-back. The books tell the story of Fable, a seventeen-year-old girl who was dropped off on a mostly deserted island by her father after their family’s ship was destroyed during a storm. Fable wants to find her way back to her father with the hopes of finding a place on his crew. But she has to get there first… 
 
These books are perfect for both young adult and adult readers. The world is corrupt and dangerous, but nothing can stop Fable from achieving her dreams. The duology is perfect for those looking to get a taste of the seas from the comfort of their couch and the chance to explore a new world of trade and secrets.

I really enjoyed this book and I wasn’t so sure I was going to. I haven’t really read any seafarer/pirate-esc type books before and was unsure if it was gonna be my cup of tea but ultimately bought because the cover caught me eye. At first, I struggled through the first couple of chapters but around chapter 5 I was hooked. I legit inhaled this book and finished it in a day, most of it being in one sitting. 

I love Fable and how strong she is. I loved following Her journey, along with the ships crew. West intrigues me though, I like him but also feel unsure
Spoilerespecially with Saints warning.
I also surprisingly liked Saint??? Like idk love/hate relationship there I think. I thought the idea of
Spoilera gem sage was cool and unique but I wish we learned more about that specifically because we didn’t really get much (but maybe in the next book??? I’m hopeful).


SpoilerI also kinda felt like the trip the Lark was too easy and quick. At first I thought it was gonna bring us to a point where we’d get a lot of it in the next book but then is was just a quick couple of chapters. I just feel like for a place that supposedly is really hard to pass though, even with a carved map arm, there would be some struggles especially with a small young crew


The ending left me surprised, definitely didn’t see that coming
Spoilerbut I guess Saint never explicitly said he was dead. I’m intrigued about where this is gonna go and if the crew and Saint will work together maybe??
Idk but I’m excited to read Namesake when my copy gets here in a couple days! Overall, I really enjoyed this book!

This was fine. I didn't feel like the stakes were super high, so I didn't feel any sense of urgency while reading it. Maybe pirate books are just not my thing?
