Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.

Synopsis: 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 the secrets her mother took to her grave 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: This book is the sequel to Fable so if you haven't read that one yet please do so so you can understand what's happening in this one. That being said I feel like this one wasn't as great as Fable. Basically in this sequel Fable goes head to head with Holland to bring down her empire all so she can go back to the Narrows. If you remember from the end of book one she was kidnapped and that is where this one picks up at. Of course, she really doesn't stay kidnapped for that long since she makes a deal for her freedom which kicks off the whole thing with Holland who is her grandmother. 

This is a good book but it's not a strong sequel in my opinion. I still enjoyed the story and loved how West and Fable stayed together through everything. She ultimately gets publicly announced as Saint's daughter and Holland's and it comes as a total surprise (except for Holland's reveal she told Fable she was going to do it). It is worth a read but it's nothing I'm going to write home about. 

Rating: 3.75 stars out of 5
