    • Abstract:
      Summary: As the daughter of the most powerful trader in the Narrows, the sea is the only home Fable has ever known. Four years ago she watched her mother drown during a storm-- and the next day her father abandoned her on a legendary island filled with thieves and little food. To survive she kept to herself, learned to trust no one and relied on the unique skills her mother taught her. Fable enlists the help of a young trader named West to get her off the island and across the Narrows to demand her rightful place beside her father. But his rivalries and the dangers of his trading enterprise have multiplied since she last saw him-- and Fable soon finds that West isn't who he seems. -- adapted from jacket

Four years after her father, an infamous merchant captain, abandoned her on a lawless island, auburn-haired Fable, now 18, is ready to escape her unwanted exile. When plans go awry, though, she's forced to barter passage aboard the Marigold, a trading vessel captained by the enigmatic West, whose crew has little time or patience for passengers. Even after demonstrating her skills as a diver and gem sage, Fable is slow to find her place amid the secretive, tight-knit crew. Following a disappointing reunion with her father, now one of the most powerful men in the region, Fable's only hope at finding acceptance is to convince West and his crew to help her seek out a long-lost, potentially lucrative shipwreck in the most dangerous part of the Unnamed Sea. Young (The Girl the Sea Gave Back) blends adventure and intrigue in this lush nautical duology opener, crafting a flinty world in which danger lurks at every turn and showing affection is a sign of weakness. Memorable characters reinforce the theme of found family, while a slow-burning romance adds a tense undercurrent that leads to the cliffhanger ending. Ages 12–up. Agent: Barbara Poelle, Irene Goodman Agency. (Sept.)
