Readers should rejoice, because we now have a lady Jack Sparrow on our hands! Daughter of the Pirate King kidnapped my interest from the first chapter and never let it go! It's a superior debut with a deeply entangled romance, a fearsome heroine not to be trifled with, a clever hero that you seriously want to trifle with, and a plot twist that makes a rollercoaster seem stable. With a cunning plot, robust writing, and complicated characters, any reader will enjoy being manipulated in Levenseller's capable hands. Definitely for fans of Pirates of the Caribbean, fierce heroines, slow-burning romances, and adventures that can turn sour in the space of a gasp. Not for fans of complacent heroines, soothing plots, or those who don't speak sarcasm. --Anna Banks, New York Times-bestselling author of Of TritonLevenseller makes an impressive debut with this funny, fast-paced, and romance-dashed nautical fantasy, set in an alternate world of pirates, sirens, and myriad islands....This one's not to be missed. --Publishers Weekly, starred review Levenseller has created a formidable female character who can take care of herself as she makes some hard decisions.

Daughter of the Pirate King was just a straight up fun read! I'm not going to blab on here and instead just dive into breaking down what I liked/didn't like.
Soooo, the plot. As a fun, fast-paced read with sword fights and treasure hunts and general pirate stuff - yes, this book features it all, but... I have to agree with other readers about this book being a little repetitive in regard to plot points. For the first 220 pages or so, the stuff that happens does become more and more familiar, though, after the 220 page mark, it does pick up and concludes really well. I didn't mind that the plot was repetitive because the book felt like it was supposed to be fun and just an enjoyable reading experience, especially with how short it is, so yeah, just a lot of fun (I think that is going to be the key word in this review).
What really carries this book is the fantastic characters and witty dialogue that never stops. Alosa is such a great character and I loved reading her voice and experiences. Riden, Daxton and all the other pirates came in well, and whilst there wasn't a big focus on some of the other pirates, I still felt like I got a really good snapshot of everyone.
The mythology was woven in well and interesting. The author has a very pleasing writing style - very easy to read and follow.
All in all, if you're a reader looking for a fun, quick pirate read, then Daughter of the Pirate King is definitely for you. I won't deny that I'll be reading on more for the characters than the mystery of the plot and I can't wait for book 2 and more pirate action!

This is the first book I’ve ever read about pirates, and now I want more.
I love that the main character is a fierce, stubborn, arrogant, and skilled woman. Alosa is so funny, I was laughing out loud a lot throughout this book. Her attitude made this story all the more enjoyable.
I loved Riden right from the very start. I really enjoyed the banter, among other things. *inserts winking emoji*
I really liked the storyline, and how it was written.
Some of the other characters really stood out to me too, like Enwen and Kearan.
I’m really happy with how it all played out and I’m so excited to read on. I can’t wait to see what happens next. I need book 2 now!
Below is just one of my favourite extracts, trust me, I have loads!
‘His philosophy is that if you have the power to do something, then you should do it.’
I'd also like to thank the lovely Danielle for talking me into reading this, it truly is a really enjoyable read that I'll happily reread a few times over.
Alosa is easily one of my favourite female leads, she’s fierce, cunning, clever - I could go on for days. Her witty thoughts kept the chapters fun and the story flowing, I just couldn’t help but fly through the pages.
I loved her rapport with Riden, as well as her interactions with the rest of the crew. She didn’t cower when they tried to threaten or intimidate her, she stood her ground and I loved that about her.
The storyline was imaginative and fun, and the only downside was that it ended a little abruptly, almost like the book had been split in half into a duology rather than written as two separate books, so I’ll be off buying the next one ASAP!
I’m intrigued to learn more of Alosa’s backstory and see her relationship with her father as well as learn more about her mother’s heritage. And of course I’m excited to see her female crew in action!
It’ll be a nice turn around to have her in charge and Riden aboard her ship instead!
Hugely recommended for pirate fans!
The secondary characters were so very loveable too, especially Alosa's crew. Everything in this book had a purpose, and it was all executed exactly how a young adult fantasy novel should be.
The thing I love the most about this book is Alosa's strong will. How even with a love interest, Tricia Levenseller manages to keep the feminist narrative throughout the novel. Alosa gets herself out of her messes, she schemes and she handles everything herself. Riden being her love interest changes nothing of her personality, and I utterly adore that.
I would recommend this to anyone, as I believe that everybody needs some swashbuckling pirates in their lives.
Full of deception, treasure hunting, adventures, kidnapping, a ship full of female pirates and a enemies to friends to... romance?
A great summer read and I wish that there were more than two books!
Alosa is the daughter of the pirate king. She's fierce, smart and skilled. Her purposeful capture is all a mission to get something for her father. What she doesn't expect is Riden the equally brilliant first mate of her capturers. She's got to keep her secrets in line and try and hide them from people who may threaten them.
It didn't disappoint, love a smart mouth female character who has depth and brains and doesn't just fall head over heels in love with the first hot male she see.
This book is full of amazing characters, beautifully described worlds making you feel like you are actually at sea.
Can't wait to start book two
Treinada pelo próprio pai, ela se tornou ágil, destemida, e a melhor pessoa para se infiltrar na tripulação inimiga e roubar uma das partes de um mapa que leva a um tesouro inimaginável.
Entre vários obstáculos que separam Alosa do Mapa, o maior deles talvez seja o inteligente e extremamente charmoso, Riden.
💬Eu sou obcecada pelo oceano e amo histórias ambientadas em alto mar. Quando vi a sinopse desse livro pela primeira vez, eu logo coloquei na minha lista.
Preciso deixar bem claro que "Daughter Of The Pirate King" não é uma fantasia épica e super complexa, mas eu adorei ele mesmo assim.
Quando li o livro, semanas atrás, eu estava atrás de uma história fluída, gostosa, repleta de aventura e humor. O livro me deu exatamente isso, e acabou me surpreendendo bastante.
A protagonista é extremamente cativante, inteligente e ácida.
Ela é uma pirata e sabe como deve agir para sobreviver aos perigos do mar. Isso não quer dizer que ela não tenha uma consciência e que seja rude o tempo todo.
A autora soube combinar e equilibrar muito bem as suas características.
Outros personagens muito bons são apresentados. Alguns da tripulação da Alosa e até mesmo alguns da tripulação inimiga.
O romance foi o que mais me prendeu nesse livro.
Confesso que amo o velho clichê de inimigos se apaixonando, e para mim o relacionamento entre os dois foi bem desenvolvido.
Eu também adorei os momentos de interação entre eles. São divertidos e cheios de provocações.
A única coisa que eu mudaria nesse livro, é o tamanho.
Eu gostaria que ele fosse maior e que alguns acontecimentos fossem descritos com mais calma.
Mesmo assim, ele me agradou bastante e me deixou bem ansiosa para ler a continuação "Daughter Of the Siren Queen".
Doch was mich am meisten überrascht hat, war wie gut erzählt und spannend dieses Buch war. Ich bin mit der Erwartung an das Buch herangegangen eine unterhaltsame Piratengeschichte zu lesen, wurde aber sehr schnell eines besseren belehrt. Dieses Buch hat Witz, ist spannend, hat eine subtile und glaubhafte Liebesbeziehung eingebaut und konnte mich gegen Ende mit einem Plottwist regelrecht aus den Socken werfen.
Jedem der auch nur im Ansatz mit dem Gedanken spielt diesem Buch eine Chance zu geben, kann ich nur dazu auffordern es zu tun.
Es ist jeden Cent wert und vermag zu überraschen! Es war mein bestes Buch 2017
