From New York Times bestselling author of Sky in the Deep, Adrienne Young, comes the first book in the fantastical Fable duology, published later this month by Titan Books...
Trader. Fighter. Survivor.
Welcome to a world made dangerous by the sea and by those who wish to profit from it. Where a young girl must find her place and her family while trying to survive in a world built for men.
As the daughter of the most powerful trader in the Narrows, the sea is the only home seventeen-year-old Fable has ever known. It’s been four years since the night she watched her mother drown during an unforgiving storm. The next day her father abandoned her on a legendary island filled with thieves and little food. To survive she must keep to herself, learn to trust no one and rely on the unique skills her mother taught her. The only thing that keeps her going is the goal of getting off the island, finding her father and demanding her rightful place beside him and his crew. To do so Fable enlists the help of a young trader named West to get her off the island and across the Narrows to her father.
But her father’s rivalries and the dangers of his trading enterprise have only multiplied since she last saw him and Fable soon finds that West isn't who he seems. Together, they will have to survive more than the treacherous storms that haunt the Narrows if they're going to stay alive.
Fable takes you on a spectacular journey as Young has created a brand-new world to explore that will appeal to fans of folklore, fairy tales and adventure. This high-speed seafaring escapade, wrought with danger and betrayal also explores themes of grief, self-discovery, and finding the strength to push forwards in the face of adversity.
