“Oh, the ridiculous things one has to do when one is a pirate.”
Daughter of the Pirate King is the first book in a duology by Tricia Levenseller.
Alosa, a seventeen-year-old pirate captain, is sent on a secret mission to be captured by enemy pirates in order to steal an ancient hidden map. Stopped at every turn by Riden, the enemy first mate, Alosa must find a way to retrieve the map from under his nose.
“I’m a pirate,” I remind him.
“Yes. I just can’t figure out if you’re a good pirate or a really good pirate.”
Okay so this book was pretty cheesy and predictable but I enjoyed it nonetheless. The majority of the book consists of Alosa breaking free, searching the ship and getting caught. Somehow it still remained entertaining regardless and the banter between her and the crew was amusing.
“Everyone has something dark in their past. I suppose it’s our job to overcome it. And if we can’t overcome it, then all we can do is make the most of it.”
This book is a good read if you need something light in between other books. I’ll definitely read book two when it’s released next year.
Thanks for reading!
