A review by thereaderfriend
Fable, by Adrienne Young

adventurous emotional mysterious slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated


Liked the character development, characters themselves, the dredging aspect, the bonds between the characters.

Disliked lack of fantasy, its slow pace—took more than half of the book to get to the action after explaining the setting, rules and introducing characters, little character exploration despite character development, the insta  love between the mc and her love interest, the ending, how the author told most of the events rather than shown—I don’t like that pov :/ 

This is the instance where I’d prefer a longer book bc there’s so much potential for this book. But I will try the sequel and maybe the side characters books bc I’m curious about them.
