Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller (from a Two Thumbs Up reviewer)by McNally Robinson - Sunday, Feb 05, 2017 at 12:17pm
This book held me captive as the story unfolded before my eyes. I will say that while certain aspects of the book felt a little predictable and I saw somethings coming, it didn't affect me falling in love with this story.
I think my most favourite part of the novel was Alosa and Riden. Each character was special in their own way. Each had brilliant sarcasm and quick responses sure to leave the other speechless. I always looked forward to the interviews Riden conducted with Alosa to find out more information about the Pirate King himself. I also really enjoyed Alosa as a character. She was incredibly badass and knew how to hold her own. She was the captain of her own ship, afterall. Overall, I very much enjoyed the prospects she brought to the story. Riden was also a an interesting character on his own. He was brilliant and different from all the other pirates on the ship. He showed compassion for Alosa, but he was also stern and questioned her.
All in all, I would give this book a 5 out of 5 stars for its pirate-themed, action-packed storyline that didn't focus around romance, but still contained a nice element of it. The characters were executed brilliantly and the plot flowed in a way that allowed for an easy, non-confusing read. I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy a good pirate read with a devilishly handsome male protagonist and a strong leading female.

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. 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.
