Review for Daughter of the Pirate King
Daughter of the Pirate King is an impressive debut from new author Tricia Levenseller.
Alosa is the daughter of infamous Pirate King, Kalligan, who rules over the seas. Her father sent her on a mission to retrieve a part of a map that will lead to a secret Isle and treasures. To do this, Alosa needs to infiltrate the Night Farer, a ship ruled by Captain Draxen and his first mate, Riden. She was captured by Draxen’s crew, making her hostage in exchange for ransom from the Pirate King. But what they didn’t know is Alosa is a willing prisoner. Being capture is part of her plan to find the legendary map that the Pirate King wants. But finding the part of the map is not as easy as Alosa anticipate, and it doesn’t help that Riden is very suspicious of her. She needs to unwit him and the others before the Pirate King decide to join her on his mission.
“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.”
Alosa is feisty, smart, resourceful, driven and cunning. Even she is locked inside the brig, she finds way to lets herself out at night to search the ship for the map. She maybe caught up several times by Riden, but she clearly finds her way to continue her mission. She is strong not because of her magical abilities but because she is trained, skilled and clever. Being raised by the Pirate King himself, Alosa is dangerous but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have a heart. She is a pirate and also a young girl who just want to please her father. And she is willing to kill if that what it takes to accomplished her task.
As for Riden, he is wicked but merciful especially if compared to his brother, Draxen. Riden is also perceptive, smart, and kind which basically compose of his overall charm. Like Alosa, he is clever making the duel of wits between them much fun to read.
The relentless banter between Alosa and Riden is not only enjoyable but also full of tensions. Reading those parts where they try to unwitt each other pull out some grins from my face and even a few laughters. This book is unmistakably a fun read.
Aside from the witty dialogues, Tricia Levenseller also throw a bunch of adventures, and magic or fantasy which basically makes Daughter of the Pirate King thrilling and riveting.
On the whole, Daughter of the Pirate King is relentlessly fun, action-packed, fast paced and thrilling read. Author Tricia Levenseller successfully combine adventure, danger, romance and magic in this first installment of ya nautical fantasy series. Looking forward reading Alosa’s next adventure, with the hope to see more about Pirate’s politics and this new fantasy world of Pirates.

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.
