The brand-new thrilling novel from New York Times best-selling author of Sky in the Deep Adrienne Young, the second book in the fantastic Fable duology.

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.

Gripping and exquisitely written. The Girl the Sea Gave Back tore at my heart strings until I was completely unraveled. Readers will fall in love with this story, whether they are fans of Sky in the Deep or new to Adrienne Young's breathtaking world. - Stephanie Garber, New York Times bestselling author of Caraval

Starts with a bang and ends with one too! Adrienne has created a mystical and brutal world that gripped me from the very beginning (and then totally destroyed me). The Norse mythology was intertwined brilliantly with Adrienne's own imagination. This was a refreshing read with fight scenes that stole my breath and a budding romance that stole my heart.

A fiercely beautiful story that will sweep you away on a brutal but breathtaking journey. - Bex Hogan, author of Viper

Eerie and beautiful, The Girl the Sea Gave Back is set in a world so vivid, you can almost touch it. I devoured this story of a lonely, powerful young woman with the ability to change the fate of her world, and the brave young chieftain who must stop her at all costs. - Kristen Ciccarelli, author of The Last Namsara

Thank you so much for sharing this story with me I really loved it. Ignore this omen at your own peril you will love this book! Perfect for fans of The Last Kingdom, it really immersed me in the Viking world that felt so mystical, complex, and fully formed. From the moment we first meet them, Tova and Halvard unravel the complicated threads of family, fate, and destiny. I shivered to see the machinations of fate through Tova's eyes and adored the political intrigue across the clans. Is fate inevitable or do our actions make it so? I'm not sure, but I'm desperate to know what fate has in store for Tova and Halvard! - A. C. Gaughen, author of the Elementae series and Scarlet

Praise for Sky in the Deep:

Brutal and beautiful - Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Gilded Wolves

A gripping story, richly told - Renée Ahdieh

Wholly unique and instantly addictive - Kerri Maniscalco

Fierce, vivid, and violently beautiful - Stephanie Garber

A rousing saga and moving coming-of-age tale, perfect for those who appreciate the wild and the wildlings, strong female protagonists, and cinematic battles. - Kirkus, Starred Review

Drawing on Viking history and lore, debut author Young crafts an exciting, at times heart-wrenching story centered around 17-year-old Eelyn, her Aska clan, and their centuries-old war with the Riki...Young's often poetic writing forms a stark juxtaposition with her vivid descriptions of battle and bloodshed, creating a clear picture of the brutality of war. - Publishers Weekly

Young's brutal, emotional debut is set in a land that is as unforgiving as its people. The strongest aspect of Young's work is the world building; she packs it with details that viscerally pull the reader into Eelyn's world. Young has also populated this world with complicated characters who evolve as readers get to know them. Even better, the theme at the core of the story overcoming prejudice and unifying to fight a greater threat resonates with current real-world issues. With its gorgeous prose and epic battle scenes, fantasy lovers will be easily satisfied. - Booklist

Viking history aficionados as well as fans of Sarah J. Maas' Throne of Glass series will fall in love with this richly crafted world. In particular, readers will respond to Eelyn, who is as emotionally passionate as she is physically capable. Young has built a detailed culture into Sky in the Deep in which her characters thrive. This intensely authentic story will appeal to adult readers as well as teens. - RT Reviews, 4 ½ stars Top Pick

Eelyn is a relentlessly fierce warrior, and even her romance with a Riki fighter doesn t quite soften her; indeed, the two find that their lust for blood is almost as strong as their lust for each other... The action on the battlefield and the rising political tensions between the clans will easily keep readers involved through the final page. - The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

A refreshing tale where life is tested and people have to overcome their differences to fight a bigger foe to survive. A fast-paced, action-filled fantasy for all YA collections. - School Library Journal
