Synopsis from Goodreads: 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.
My Review: While I loved this conclusion to the duology it was a lot slower than the first and I really felt like it missed a few parts to amp up the adventure and tension in the book. I still gave the book 5 stars because it was very well written and I loved the character and story. I also loved the world that young built and sincerely hope that she does more books set in that world!
