ARC Review: Namesake, by Adrienne Young

Rating: 5 out of 5.

This duology has the best covers!

I knew going in that I would love this book, after being blown away by Fable, and I was right. I love this book. Fable faces some serious challenges here, and there are some hefty revelations.

The crew of the Marigold didn’t play as large a role in this one, which I was a bit disappointed about, but it also felt like the right decision, what with all the other plot going on here. Though, I did enjoy seeing another side of Koy.

Fable grows as a character, and she and West have their relationship sorely tested by both their actions and choices and revelations about their pasts. West makes some questionable decisions but he does so with Fable in mind, so I forgave him for it.

My favorite things about this novel are Fable’s evolving relationship with Saint and her memories of her mother. There is so much more to both that I won’t give away, because spoilers, but let’s just say there were a few moments near the end that had me crying. And I absolutely, completely love how things wrapped up.

I will keep my fingers crossed for more pirates from Adrienne Young, but at the very least she’s going on my must-read list.
