Daughter of the Pirate King | Review

I’ll be honest, when I first heard about the Daughter of the Pirate King, I had no interest in it. The cover didn’t thrill me and I’ve never really been a pirate person, mainly because it seems like I’m the only one who despises Pirates of the Caribbean, and given that this book was pitched as a female Jack Sparrow I was very much ehhhhhhhhh about it.

But my library had a copy, so I decided to read it.

 

And I am oh so glad I did.

Alosa is the daughter of the pirate king, and a fearsome pirate in her own right. She’s on a mission for her father that involved her orchestrating her own kidnapping (I got some very Lila Bard vibes from this!) but her plans quickly start to go awry, and Alosa finds herself in some hot water as her special ability becomes exposed… and she starts to fall for one of her captors. Never a good combo, right?

This book really grabbed me from the beginning, and I thought the writing was great. The tone of most the book is upbeat and fast paced. Alosa’s quick-wittedness had me laughing many a time while reading. And let’s just say her fiery hair really does reflect her personality. The banter really was a shining star in this novel.

The pacing for me did get a little wobbly towards the end, but nothing major, just what seemed like a very quick wrap up. For me this was a really great, easy, weekend read and if it interests you at all, I suggest picking it up.

I can’t wait for the second book! Definitely intrigued to find to out what will happen next.

 

My favorite line:Β 

“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.”

My favorite visual: Omg omg omg spoiler!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
