Trader. Fighter. Survivor.

With the Marigold ship free of her father, Fable and its crew were set to start over. That freedom is short-lived when she becomes a pawn in a notorious thug’s scheme. In order to get to her intended destination she must help him to secure a partnership with Holland, a powerful gem trader who is more than she seems.

As Fable descends deeper into a world of betrayal and deception she learns that her mother was keeping secrets, and those secrets are now putting the people Fable cares about in danger. If Fable is going to save them then she must risk everything, including the boy she loves and the home she has finally found.

Filled with action, emotion, and lyrical writing, New York Times bestselling author Adrienne Young returns with Namesake, the final book in the captivating Fable duology.


Fable’s fate is in Zola’s hands, and he needs her to negotiate with Holland.

I loved it, this book is absolutely great, it closes the duology perfectly. Fable annoyed me a little bit at a certain point, she is a little selfish but she wants to save the people she loves. She’s also going to have to learn to trust and that’s not an easy thing for her.

West has gone out looking, he is capable of anything to protect her and that will cause some tension.

I really liked the relationship building between Fable and West, they are more mature in this tome, they are discovering a little bit more about each other and it gives their relationship a good foundation.

I also enjoyed seeing Koi, he’s not a bad guy, he just needs to survive but he will make the right choices.

Talking about Namesake without talking a little bit about Saint would not be right, I want to tell you that I knew it. He’s manipulative that’s one thing for sure, but he does everything he can to protect his daughter even if he doesn’t always do it right.

Adrienne Young succeeded in her bet with Fable and Namesake, this duology is perfect, there are no lengths, you get attached to all the characters and you absolutely want to know what’s going to happen to them.

Quick word: A duology of adventures on the open sea that you absolutely must read.


Le destin de Fable est entre les mains de Zola, ce dernier a besoin d’elle pour négocier avec Holland.

J’ai adoré, ce livre est absolument génial, il clôture parfaitement la duologie. Fable m’a un peu agacée à un certain moment, elle est un peu égoïste mais elle veut sauver les personnes qu’elles aiment. Elle va aussi devoir apprendre à faire confiance et ce n’est pas une chose facile pour elle.

West est parti à la recherche, il est capable de tout pour la protéger et c’est ce qui causera quelques tensions.

J’ai beaucoup aimé la construction de la relation entre Fable et West, ils sont plus matures dans ce tome, ils découvrent un peu plus de choses l’un sur l’autre et ça permet à leur relation d’avoir une bonne base.

J’ai aussi beaucoup apprécié de voir Koi, ce n’est pas un mauvais bougre, il a juste besoin de survivre mais il fera les bons choix.

Parler de Namesake sans parler un peu de Saint ne serait pas correct, j’ai envie de vous dire que je le savais. Il est manipulateur c’est une chose certaine, mais il fait tout ce qu’il peut pour protéger sa fille même s’il ne s’y prend pas toujours correctement.

Adrienne Young a réussi son pari avec Fable et Namesake, cette duologie est parfaite, il n’y a pas de longueurs, on s’attache à tous les personnages et on veut absolument savoir ce qu’il va leur arriver.

En bref : Une duologie d’aventures en pleine mer à lire absolument.
