FIRST READ OF 2023! FABLE has been recommended to me in some capacity for a few years. When I saw that the audiobook was available I decided to borrow it to start my year off with a light read. I'm going, to be frank, and say that I didn't like the first half of the book. It felt basic and cliche and nothing really captured my attention. The second half of the book was a pleasant upturn. I quite enjoyed the character of Fable in the second half despite the fact that I thought she was a bit basic in the beginning. The crew of the Marigold was also a highlight that helped me stay. Saint is an interesting character. I definitely think that I'll be reading the second book when I get the time, but for now, onto the next!
