“Oh, the ridiculous things one has to do when one is a pirate.”

Alosa, daughter of the fearsome Pirate King, sets off on a mission to be captured by her enemies in hopes to find a hidden map aboard their vessel. Fooling the pirate crew is all too easy for Alosa, but fooling the first mate, Riden, is a little more challenging. Alosa has to keep a level head and be sure she doesn’t let herself get distracted by Riden, not too distracted anyways…

Daughter of the Pirate King is a two book series with the second book being called Daughter of the Siren Queen. This review will cover the entire series as a whole. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this series. When I originally decided to read it, I thought it would be a fun romance story with a little bit of adventure thrown into the mix. However, the adventure elements were even better than the romance. Tricia Leveseller created a series that reminded me a lot of “The Pirates of the Caribbean” movies. Although there were romantic elements, the series revolved more around the adventures and conflicts than it did the romance between Alosa and Riden. I think this gave the series much more depth and made it more interesting.

“Submissiveness. I try not to cringe as the word enters my mind. Horrid word, that one. But it is what I must be if this is to work. For my father, I’m willing to become everything that I hate.”

The character development in Daughter of the Pirate King was executed flawlessly. Each character had their own personality and traits that made them unique. I especially liked Alosa’s character as she was this fearless badass who could take on any man that got in her way. It was easy to love her and want to be her. There really weren’t any characters that I didn’t like. I found myself becoming so connected to all of them that when one of them died, I felt real sorrow. It made the book much more intense, making it difficult to put it down.

“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.”

It was smart of Tricia Leveseller to make the story into a two book series. One book would have been too short and three books would have been too long. I felt that the two books covered all the necessary elements of the story and each had their own adversaries and conflict which made the second book just as exciting as the first. 

If you enjoy exciting books with a mixture of adventure, romance, drama, and comedy mixed into one then you should read the Daughter of the Pirate King!
