Book: Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller
Rating: 3.5 stars
There will be plenty of time for me to beat him soundly once I’ve gotten what I came for.
Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map—the key to a legendary treasure trove—seventeen-year-old pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows herself to be captured by her enemies, giving her the perfect opportunity to search their ship.
More than a match for the ruthless pirate crew, Alosa has only one thing standing between her and the map: her captor, the unexpectedly clever and unfairly attractive first mate, Riden. But not to worry, for Alosa has a few tricks up her sleeve, and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.
Pirates? Heck yes, what other incentive did I need to read this book!
Daughter of the Pirate King is a fun and very fast paced and action packed book and I loved it! They were pirates, so it’s expected that their actions make me a bit uncomfortable, and so I couldn’t really hate that about the book.
Everything was developed so well and the flow was really good. The magical aspect of this book was so so interesting! I loved learning about it.
Alosa: A snarky, witty and bad ass character? You bet. She shut down any sexist behaviours from the male pirates and in general is so awesome. There is something about overly confident characters that I don’t like. Probably because there’s such a thin line between them bordering on pretentious, but there’s a lot of development for her, so that wasn’t much of a problem.
The romance? I enjoyed it, I did, but along with the rest of the book it was a bit fast. I mean it felt slow burning, but I guess with the whole fast paced feel of the book, I kind of lost that. I also don’t know how much of a match the two are but it seems to work. I’m hoping there’s further development for the two in the sequel that’ll convince me.
