“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.”
The Daughter of the Pirate King, is a good book. I loved it a lot. Once I began to read I read it for hours the characters of Alosa and Riden pulling me in, wondering what they were going to do next and what was in store for them. the adventure that Alosa goes on for her father. She gets captured, by Riden’s brother, leaving her crew, made up of mostly women, she stays strong on the ship and hold her own against Riden, and his brother Draxen.
The bored tone Alosa often takes when dealing with Riden and the other men on the Night Farer, is funny and entertaining as Alosa is on the ship and the things she gets into batting the men and slowly falling for Riden and keep her secret.
The way the story is told is wonderfull and well done for the way the story is layed out. And better yet there is no love triangle that is often present in YA fiction. The romance that is in this book is minimal. Which I liked a lot, it did not effect the plot and it played wonderfully to the story of what Alosa had to do.
I enjoyed the story of Also and could not wait to pick up the second book, I listened to this one on Audiobook, and the narrater was wonderful, she did a good job with Alosa’s vvoice and portraying her attitude and confidnce. I recamend this book to anyone who is tired of love triangles and likes pirates and sirens and the high seas!!
