rhia reviews | Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller

31216056Sent 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.

My Goodreads rating: ★★★★☆

This was even better than I thought it was going to be! I was really looking forward to this book and I just knew it was going to be good – and it was. I can name unfortunately few YA books about pirates, so when I heard about this I knew I had to get my hands on it.

I love that Alosa and the other pirates aren’t sugar-coated at all. There’s a good balance of humour, romance, and violence. I didn’t feel the romance was too strong either – it’s pretty obvious, but I don’t think it’s over the top or too insta-love-y at all.

This is a fab debut and I’m super excited for next year’s sequel.
