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.
I got this book in one of my book boxes and I was excited right away because I love anything to do with Pirates. Let me tell you I was not disappointed! I was hooked right from the beginning, I was drawn into the story and connect with the characters right away. From the start there was adventure, humor, and a hint of romance.
The books characters were well developed and they played off each other well; especially Alosa and Riden. However, I thought Alosa’s interaction with all the characters was fun; I always love sarcastic humor and this book had lots of it especially when Alosa was involved. I liked how you got bits of backstory about Alosa and Riden as the book went on and got to understand them more. I of course was rooting for them to get together because they had great chemistry.
I thought the plot was fun and interesting. You don’t see many women pirates, and even in the book Alosa is a rare woman pirate. She has many strengths and tricks up her sleeves that the men holding her “captive” don’t know about. It made me laugh whenever she would trick Riden and the rest of the pirates on the ship. The plot wasn’t super suspenseful you could kind of see where it was going, but not enough to where you knew exactly where it was going so some surprises were in there. I thought it had a great mix of adventure, humor, and romance.
Alosa and her fathers relationship was definitely different and you can see it isn’t the best, but Alosa deals with it pretty well. I like that she wasn’t the typical girl lead who starts to have pity parties and question everything; personally there is too much of that in some books I have read. I could see how this would make a fun movie! I was excited to learn that there will be more in the series and will get to read how things end up for Alosa and Riden!
