Synopsis: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’m so happy I gave this book a chance. I had read a YA with pirates before that left me disappointed, so I was a little hesitant with this book, but I’m so glad I took the chance. I LOVED this book. I read it in single sitting. It was so easy to get lost in the story and I did not want it to end.

The characters are fascinating. The main character, Alosa, was splendid. I adored her fiery attitude, unyielding loyalty, and strategic mindset. Riden, the love interest, was a pirate with a heart of gold that kept you on your toes. My favorite parts was the banter between Alosa and Riden. The chemistry between them was evident in the first few pages.

The story was interesting. We start off without a lot of introduction. Instead, we’re in the middle of an action scene that pretty much sets the pace for the rest of the story.

If you love Pirates of the Caribbean then you’ll enjoy Daughter of the Pirate King. Romance, suspense, and mystique make this story a winner.
