“This was not a planned read. Kayla was raving about it and it made me want to read it so much. I picked it up and read it in one night. Totally worth it. Can’t wait for the next book.” – Alex

“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.”

Alex: “Daughter of the Pirate King” pulled me in right away. This was definitely a one-sitting kind of book for me. While parts of the book were a little bit predictable the character completely made up for it. Alosa was a strong protagonist and a great narrator for this journey.
While we got to touch on some of the mythical aspects of the book, I’m hoping that in the sequel we get more detail about it. Also, the romance was great and I have high expectations that it will continue into the next book. I can’t wait to read more about Riden.
Kayla: I loved everything about this book. It hooked me in from the beginning and featured strong characters that I instantly fell in love with. The only critical thing I can say is that I suspected one of the twists early on, but that’s no fault of the novel. This book made me excited to read Tricia Levenseller’s other works, too.
I am so excited to dive into the sequel! I want to know how this series ends. This book is a new favorite of mine and I can honestly say it was a good combination of everything. It has action, romance, comedy, and built suspense well, too. I’ll be returning to this one soon for a reread. [Update: I read this book again right before posting this review :D]
This book grabbed us from the beginning and didn’t let go. The pacing was fantastic and it was SO hard to put down, we both finished it in a day. We really enjoyed the romance, or hints of it, and didn’t feel like it was forced. Additionally, Alosa is a wonderfully strong female lead and we would follow her anywhere.
We’re excited to dive into the sequel, and are looking forward to the conclusion of this duology.
