“Daughter of the Pirate King” by Tricia Levenseller – Kayla’s Review

’ve always enjoyed Pirate-y content. When I was a younger reader, I really enjoyed the Bloody Jack series by L.A. Meyer and this, while being a YA book, sounded like a more grown-up version. It gave me nostalgic vibes and I was really looking forward to reading it.
