Daughter of the Siren Queen: Daughter of the Pirate King (Book 2)
by Tricia Levenseller
“My father’s ships will be at the sirens’ mercy. We will be the ones to reach the island first and claim its treasure for ourselves.
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. Riden, still unfairly attractive, is a constant distraction, but at least he’s under her orders this time.
But when the villainous 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’s the Daughter of the Siren Queen.”
After reading Daughter of the Pirate King last year, I knew I had to see how Alosa and Riden got on. I recommend reading Daughter if the Pirate King first so you understand what is happening.
After the adventures in Daughter of the Pirate King, Alosa captures Vordan from his keep and is back on her ship. She travels back to the Pirate King’s keep to hand over the final piece of the map, but there she discovers her father’s secret he never wanted her to find out.
I loved this book so much, the banter, the storyline, the characters, Alosa’s scheming mind. I read it in an afternoon, I could not put it down. I went on a rollercoaster with Alosa, emotionally and on her adventure, there were plenty of twists, most of which I did not see coming.
My favourite characters are Alosa, Riden, Mandsey, Niridia and Sorinda. I loved getting to see more of Alosa and Riden, but I adored getting to know her girls better. I love how different they all are, and how strong they are after what they have been through.
How am I supposed to pick out a favourite part? I loved all of it, but mostly from chapter 17 onwards. I really enjoyed reading about the goings-on onboard the Ava-Lee, including their jig.
Daughter of the Siren Queen is wrapped up by the end as it is the end of the duology, but I would love to have a book set afterwards.
While reading this book, I described it as a girl finding her mother and saying screw you to her father. I would recommend it to teenagers and adults. 5 out of 5.
