Book Review: Daughter Of The Pirate King (Daughter Of The Pirate King #1) by: Tricia Levenseller

Release Date: Fenruary 28, 2017

Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"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."

My Thoughts:

This book was everything I hoped it would be. It was a fun pirate story with a kickass heroine and high stakes. This definitely has Pirates of the Caribbean vibes, which is one of my favorite movies, and I loved the book all the more because of it.

Alosa is an amazing heroine. Girl is unstoppable and can get out of practically any situation. With her brain and her wits and training and a smidgen of luck, nothing can keep her down. Alosa was the star of the show and I loved how badass she was and that nothing could stop her.

We also have Riden, who frankly needs to man up a bit. I liked him a lot but he needs to step up on occasion. His brother is a terrible person and I wasn’t thrilled with some of the stuff he let him pull… even if he knew Alosa could get out of it herself. Take responsibility a bit. But anyway. I still liked him and I can’t wait to see how he grows.

Of course this one has a touch of romance but honestly if it hadn’t existed at all I still would have loved this one. I would have been content to read an entire book that was just Alosa being her badass self. Also, I’m dying to meet more of her predominately female crew cause I’m sure they are badass too.

Daughter Of The Pirate King delivered a fun read with a ton of action and an incredible heroine. It was so fun watching Alosa purposely get caught, escape, purposely get herself caught again, escape again, and repeat. This was a great read all around and I can’t wait for more.
