Daughter of the Pirate King
Daughter of the Pirate King | Tricia Levenseller
If you want something done right....When the ruthless Pirate King learns of a legendary treasure map hidden on an enemy ship, his daughter, Alosa, knows that there's only one pirate for the job herself. Leaving behind her beloved ship and crew, Alosa deliberately facilitates her own kidnapping to ensure her passage on the enemy ship. After all, who's going to suspect a seventeen-year-old girl locked in a cell? Then she meets the (surprisingly perceptive and unfairly attractive) first mate, Riden, who is charged with finding out all her secrets. Now it's down to a battle of wits and will... Can Alosa find the map and escape before Riden figures out her plan?Debut author Tricia Levenseller blends action, adventure, romance, and a little bit of magic into a thrilling YA pirate tale."

“Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, True Love, miracles....”

Like TPB, this is a fun action-adventure. A YA novel with loads of piratey goodness. Overall a fun read except I‘m annoyed at the ending because it doesn‘t really end, just stops. Clearly there will be a book 2.

CrowCAH Love the envelope ✉️!!! I prefer the first book over the second. 1mo
wanderinglynn @CrowCAH I really want to learn more of Riden‘s story—does she tell more of his story in book 2? And thanks! I picked out the fabric because I thought it was fun & unique & Lauren (Bookvelopes on Etsy) made it (or you can choose an already made one—https://etsy.me/2DgRfOE). 1mo
CrowCAH @wanderinglynn oh, it‘s a book sleeve envelope?! I think I will have to copy your arrrr-some taste and get the one you have! No, even the second book is from the heroine‘s POV. But since I preordered the second book, I received Riden‘s POV of book one short story. I can try and send it to you, if the google doc will let me; what‘s your email? 1mo
wanderinglynn @CrowCAH Yes! It‘s a sleeve shaped like an envelop! I love them! I have 2 of them (the medium, which is this one, and a large, which fits hardbacks). And awesome—my email is lynn@wanderinglynn.com Thanks! 😀 1mo

A swashbuckling YA romance featuring Alosa, the ruthless redheaded daughter of a pirate king. Raised to be more than a match for any man she meets, Alosa has been tasked by her father to obtain a piece of a map which will lead them to unlocking party of Alosa's past. Devising a scheme to be "kidnapped" by a rival ship, Alosa finds herself dealing with a loathsome Captain, and unwittingly drawn to his handsome but contradictory First Mate.

What an unexpected delightful surprise! I got this one in an owlcrate box ages ago and it‘s sat on my shelf forever. Decided to pick it up for my A in DADA and really enjoyed it. Adventure, pirates, sassy retorts. This was nothing mind-blowing, but it was a whole lot of fun (4⭐️). I will definitely be picking up the sequel.

SmartSassery @LibrarianRyan Aww. 💜 Want to know a secret? Unually what comes out as an end result isn't exactly what started out in my head. 😉 Sometimes it's not even close. 😂 I'm a burn it all kind of frustrated person. So there are times five ideas have started before I end up with something I'm ok with. It's a really hard thing to come to terms with sometimes.. Realizing you just have to go with the flow and be happy you made anything. 5mo

Meh. I expected a lot more from this. I just felt like it didn't really go anywhere. Quite a bit of misogyny and no diversity of characters. Plus there was a lot of family violence perpetrated by the father/pirate king that was never actually resolved in any real way. Really disappointing.

3.5/3 Stars. I enjoyed the story & love anything involving pirates. Plus, Alosa is a fun character. It‘s a great read for when you‘re sitting at the beach because of atmosphere. The reason behind my rating, is that at some points, the book seemed very...disjointed. A lot of major things about Alosa were revealed way later in the book than they should have been, and seemed to come out of nowhere. Will still read the sequel, however.

Does anyone else have trouble reading books in present tense? I picked this up the other day and didn‘t open it first...I just have such a hard time when it‘s not past! Not sure if this is #englishteacherproblems or I‘m just that picky 😂

baes Me! 🙋🏻‍♀️ I thought I was the only one. Lol I can do it, and enjoy many books that are set in present time...but they just don‘t compare. I think it is because I like to escape reality, and anything out of the ordinary (during the present) reads pretend to me. However, anything can happen in the past. 😂 6mo
cewilf @baes yes!! Exactly. Glad it‘s not just me haha 🙃 6mo
CrowCAH First person present is difficult to read. Though this was written simply I was able to read it quickly. 6mo

4.5 Stars. Hilarious, Magical, so many wonderful twists and turns had me reeling to keep reading.
Riden and Alosa are perfect, i love everything about them and who they are they are now in my favorite characters area.
I loved learning about Sirens and the Confident's Alosa has and how strong she is.
Can not wait for the second book to come out!!! might have to make a deal with the devil ( husband ) to get it on my book shelve.

This was so good. I loved the characters, the writing was descent and the pace was excellent.

Though, there wasn't much of like treasure hunts or sword fights (the next book has more of that) It was more about the main character having battles of wits with her captor.

8/10 💫

This book was marketed as the female version of Pirates of the Caribbean, and it 100% gave off that vibe. It was a fun and action packed adventure, and I really loved the main character. She wasn‘t a rambling idiot like Jack Sparrow (not that I have a problem with those movies), but was kick-butt and smart and was always in control of the situation.

At first I didn't like the "fact" that only basic bitches are strong woman. But as I went through the book, my mind completely changed and I fell in love with the mc. She is strong, yes. But what really attracted me is that she is a good actress! I just loved every part she played those pirates ;) and not to forget the book boyfriend ?

“I am me because I choose to be me. I am what I want. Some people say you have to find yourself. Not I. I believe we create ourselves to be what we want.”

This was a very enjoyable audiobook. Alosha is a great character that is kickass most of the time but has some vulnerability. I‘ll definitely read the sequel.

OKAY this was GREAT and my only regret is not reading it sooner!!! Although now I have the sequel immediately at hand. Such swashbuckling fun, it includes some fully nasty pirates without getting too dark on the page, and I liiiiiiive for the enemies-to-lovers banter between Alosa and the unfairly attractive first mate of the enemy ship she infiltrates. A quick two day read that had me smiling the whole way through. 🖤 Black heart because pirates.
