A review by andromeda_1998
Namesake (Fairyloot Edition), by Adrienne Young

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


Like I loved fable, I love namesake. I’m not sure why but this series means the world to me. It has action, adventure and the seas in one book and well I’m here for it!

Fable is a girl that knows what she wants. The sea is in her blood and she needs the freedom it can offer her. She is willing to do everything to get back the kind of life she has before her mother died. The love she feels for the ocean makes you want to travel the seas and I’m kind of sad that we cannot join her on her future adventures.

I liked West more in the first book. He has always been protective but he’s more controlling in the second book.

The book is fast paced and full of adventure. The writingstyle is light and simple. I really like Adrienne Young’s writing, it makes her books easy and fun to read.

Even-though the books are fast paced, the writer still found the time to explain the world and she expanded her world in the second book. There is a lot to discover and I cannot wait to read the last legacy, which is set in the same book as fable and namesake.

I really enjoyed that this book focuses more on her mother then her father and it was Interesting to learn more about Isolde’s past. It was a beautiful way to complete the story. 

I will recommend this series wholeheartedly, especially to readers between the ages 14-25.
