The capable, confident, and occasionally ruthless heroine of Daughter of the Pirate King is back in this action-packed sequel that promises rousing high seas adventures and the perfect dash of magic.
Alosa’s mission is finally complete. Not only has she recovered all three pieces of the map to a legendary hidden treasure, but the pirates who originally took her captive are now prisoners on her ship. Still unfairly attractive and unexpectedly loyal, first mate Riden is a constant distraction, but now he’s under her orders. And she takes great comfort in knowing that the villainous Vordan will soon be facing her father’s justice.
When Vordan exposes a secret her father has kept for years, Alosa and her crew find themselves in a deadly race with the feared Pirate King. Despite the danger, Alosa knows they will recover the treasure first . . . after all, she is the daughter of the Siren Queen.
In Daughter of the Siren Queen, Tricia Levenseller brings together the perfect mix of thrilling action, tense battle scenes, and a heart-pounding romance.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review
My Rating: 4 Stars
Are you a fan of badass heroines? Swashbuckling pirates? Sexy, brooding, irresistible men? If you answered yes to all of the above, and haven’t yet read Daughter of the Pirate King, I don’t know what you have being doing with your life for the last year! If you answered no to any of the above, I may have some questions about our friendship (Ahem, Mika – jk I still love you).
I can’t say this enough: this book is the PERFECT slump buster! Looking for a light, entertaining, and thrilling read to help you get over your book hangover? This is absolutely what you need to read. It’s a book that you can finish in one sitting, easily. The characters are clever, entertaining, and just a little bloodthirsty.
The romance between Alosa and her pirate was amazing – it was tense and full of conflict, and kept me on my toes. I honestly could never tell if the two characters wanted to fight or tear one another’s clothes off. The male lead was sweet and patient, a perfect pairing for Alosa’s fiery temperament.
I think my only qualm with Daughter of the Siren Queen was its abrupt ending. Honestly, if I hadn’t read the acknowledgements, I wouldn’t have known it was a duology – I actually finished the book wondering what conflict Alosa would face in book 3!
My Takeaway: A great, light, fast paced read. The perfect book to lift your spirits and get you past a brutal book hangover! I just wish there was another book coming – I didn’t get the closure I was looking for.
