Alosa's mission is finally complete. Not only has she recovered all three pieces of the map to a legendary hidden treasure, but the pirates who originally took her captive are now prisoners on her ship. Still unfairly attractive and unexpectedly loyal, first mate Riden is a constant distraction, but now he's under her orders. And she takes great comfort in knowing that the villainous Vordan will soon be facing her father's justice.
When Vordan exposes a secret her father has kept for years, Alosa and her crew find themselves in a deadly race with the feared Pirate King. Despite the danger, Alosa knows they will recover the treasure first . . . after all, she is the daughter of the Siren Queen.
I loved loved LOVED this book! It was just as good as the first book, if not better. I love this cast of characters and this world, and I’m sad to say goodbye. But I enjoyed going on this adventure with them so much – it’s hard to even put my thoughts and feelings into words.
Alosa was suuuper stubborn in the beginning, and I kinda wanted to smack the silly out of her at times, but I still adored her. I LOVED seeing more of her Siren side in this book. I wish we could have seen more yet, but it was still very cool.
Riden was just as adorable and cocky and hilarious in this book as the first. He went through a LOT of conflict and character growth, and I’m really happy with where his story ended.
I still shipped Alosa and Riden hard, but I wanted to see more of their relationship. I’m very satisfied with where things ended for them, don’t get me wrong – it holds the promise of more. But I wanted to SEE the “more.”
Two of my favorite secondary characters were Niridia and Mandsy. They’re kick-ass pirates and loyal friends. And they had some hilarious lines/moments.
The deaths in this book hit me like a punch to the gut. These characters are so incredible and so real that I felt their deaths just as deeply as Alosa did.
The writing definitely improved from book one to book two. As I mentioned in my review of the first book, the writing in Daughter of the Pirate King was a bit stilted and awkward. There was a LOT of improvement in Daughter of the Siren Queen.
The ending was sooooooo satisfying. I’m still sad to be leaving this world and these characters, but it was an incredible ending. I can’t wait to see what Tricia Levenseller does next!
I HIGHLY recommend this book to those who enjoyed the first book – you WON’T be disappointed with this incredible sequel! I’d also recommend it to those who love all things sirens, pirates (in general), Pirates of the Carribean, and kick-ass female heroines.
