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. (Goodreads)
I've had Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller on my TBR for a while now, and I'm seriously kicking myself for waiting so long to read it. I mean, not only is it about pirates, but LADY pirates, which are definitely the best kind! I really enjoyed this book so much more than I expected to. It was great!
There are so many characters in this story that I absolutely loved, including the main character, Alosa, who just happens to be a pirate princess, and is completely awesome in every single way. I loved everything from her snarky attitude, to the fact that she could hold her own in almost any situation. Meaning, she's a badass, but one with a kind heart. She's definitely one of my favorite heroines, especially because of the pirate thing. *wink* There are a lot of great characters in the story, I could seriously go on and on about them, but I'd rather you read the book and meet them for yourself!
As you've probably gathered so far from my rambling so far, I really enjoyed this book. I have a thing for all things pirates, and this being about a pirate princess was right up my alley. There are seriously not enough pirate books in my life at the moment, and the few I have read have been awesome. I'd love to have more! This book is definitely a welcome addition, and I can't wait for my finished copy to arrive.
Overall; I really enjoyed reading Daughter of the Pirate King SO MUCH, and I absolutely can't wait to get my hands on the sequel, which is currently untitled, but is set to release in 2018. I must know what's going to happen next for Alosa and her crew!
