Review of Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller
Thank you to Netgalley and Feiwel & Friends for a copy of the eARC in exchange for a fair review.
Alosa is the daughter of the Pirate King and she is on a mission. When Draxon and Riden board her (fake ) ship she hides herself among the crew and only reveals herself after they have surrendered. She then negotiates rather well to get her crew released and all of her stuff moved over to their ship.
She is looking for a map and she will do whatever it takes to find that map. No matter how handsome Riden is. She spends night after night breaking of her cell looking for this map. She keeps getting caught by Riden, and even when her father's man reveals himself to her, she refuses to take any help.
For Riden is right she is hiding a great many things, the least of which is the location to her father's keep. When another pirate steals her from Draxon, she knows things are deeper than she expected. There are many players in this game.
I loved Alosa and her all women crew!!! Totally on board with that. She is snarky, clever, and a complete badass. And those twists, whew this was a game and many players were playing and no one knew just how many until the end. I will say that I am not a fan of her father, he was clearly very abusive in his training of her.
But that connection between Riden and Alosa was amazing! I can't wait to see what the next book brings... In fact I am more than a little heartbroken I have to wait a whole year.
