This is the second book in the Fable Duology
Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for the ARC
Trader. Fighter. Legend.
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.
Namesake picks up immediately where Fable finished which was great to see as I like sequels to start back where you left off with no time passing.
The backstory of where Fable is from that occurred in the first book is expanded upon in Namesake which is great as I was interested in seeing what happened and why Fable was where she was.
The relationship between Fable and West was lovely to see shape and grow throughout the book and it ended in the way I hoped it would! It was also lovely to see the relationships between the crew but also the other characters in the book mature throughout Namesake.
Secrets and lies are always an interesting aspect that comes up in stories between characters. The secret and lies that Fable and West had throughout the duology added a dynamic that was intriguing to me. I loved the way that they rectified them though.
Namesake’s pacing was really good and I didn’t find myself wanting for things to happen quicker then they did.
All in all, I really enjoyed Namesake and it tied up all the questions I had from Fable. The relationship between Fable and West was my favourite part of the book.
