Synopsis from Goodreads: 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.
My Review: I LOVED this book. It gets all the stars. I was first sucked in by the gorgeous cover, which makes me want to dye my hair that same shade of red! and then sucked in again by the plot! There is so much going on in this book that is so wonderfully set up. The world building is outstanding, the set of characters is amazing and so complex and detailed that you want to know so much more about each of them and the plot is one that makes this book super hard to put down! The storytelling here was just phenomenal and I am dying to get my hands on book two!!
