I haven't read a book about pirates in a long time, probably not since I read Peter Pan when I was a kid. So I was curious to read this one, especially with the main character being a female. I also had so much fun doing my Bookstagram picture for this one.
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.
In Daughter of the Pirate King, debut author Tricia Levenseller blends action, adventure, romance, and a little bit of magic into a thrilling YA pirate tale.
Don't you just love the cover? The main character Alosa is so kick ass, you can't help but want to be her! I'm a sucker for romance so I was cheering for her and Riden right from the beginning, but she is a pirate and very stubborn so my love story didn't go exactly the way I wanted...but was still satisfying.
There also a neat twist in the story that continues into book two, so don't look at the title of book 2 or you will know what the twist is! Anyway I loved the story and I can't wait to read book 2. I give the story five out of five stars. I definitely recommend you read it, if you love fantasy, romance and excitement in your stories.
I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars.
