Adrienne Young: Namesake

As this is the second book of the Duology you will need to read the first book in the series, Fable, in order to fully understand the characters, and relationships between them.
Adrienne Young is back on the high seas with Fable, where she is continuing looking for her place in the world:
After being captured and betrayed by someone who she thought she could trust Fable finds herself part of a rival's scheme and a prisoner on his ship. Forced to dredge for a rival ship with an impossible task, Fable learns that secrets that her mother took to her grave are now putting Fable in danger and descending deeper and deeper into a world filled of betrayal and deception. Fable doesn't know who to trust or what her future holds.

This book was good and I really liked the beginning of the book where Fable was away from West, but this book was really predictable. Like how would people not guess where the midnight was located? Or things about Fable’s bloodline. I felt like everything was staring you in the face which made the book lose any form or suspense or mystery. I mean I think it is obvious where Midnight is going to be located, as well as the plan that Fable enacts, even the Name of the book gives too much away.

I’m still not a fan of the West and Fable relationship, it was too much too fast and they barely know each other, some of which is rectified in this book, but still they are willing to risk way too much for a person they barely know. I thought that West was holding Fable back and at the same time West went against what he said he was about with his crew. I think West is supposed to grow on you with what he is willing to sacrifice for Fable, but for some reason I just never became a fan of his.

There are also some unanswered questions in this book, Like why was Isode really driven away from her home, this is never fully explained? I feel like Fable would like to know that information. The father daughter relationship between Fable and Saint is where this book shines and that Saint and Fable  are willing to do anything for each other, even though that they had been apart for years.

This was a good book and a good follow up to the first book and heck who doesn’t like pirates searching for treasure. But I will say that the duology left me underwhelmed for the most part, especially with all the hype surrounding it.
