I absolutely loved Fable and was looking forward to this sequel. I can say I wasn't disappointed by it, but it also didn't meet every single expectation and hope that I had for it.

I absolutely love Adrienne Young's writing, and that didn't disappoint. I love Fable and the character growth she went through. What I didn't like was the change that happened to West's character, or how co-dependent West and Fable's relationship got.

I loved the way things when with Saint!  I thought the crew of the Marigold didn't have as big of a roll in this one, and I wished they would have.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book, and the cover is absolutely gorgeous!
