Publisher's Summary

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 - 17-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.

In Daughter of the Pirate King, debut author Tricia Levenseller blends action, adventure, romance, and a little bit of magic into a thrilling YA pirate tale.

entertaining

This was very entertaining. I enjoyed the narrator a lot as well. her voice was fitting for the character.

This book had a romance I wasn't expecting, but I did not mind it. I really enjoyed the use of sirens through this story. It was first pirate book and all the women in this book was fierce. I would read the next book, but I don't think the characters will stick in my heart the other characters have so that's why I give it 4 stars.

Wow!

I have to be honest, I wasn't expecting much from this book, as the pirate concept has been overdone to death. But...WOW! The author gave us just enough backstory on our heroine to keep the hook in

The story is told from the POV of Alosa, a fearless, witty, and self-assured young woman who knows who she is and makes no apologies. Though we occasionally get a glimpse of the tender heart lurking beneath her armor, the daughter of the Pirate King is a badass who allows herself to be captured by a band of cutthroat, rebel pirates determined to undermine her father. Throughout the book, Alosa proves that she is a force to be reckoned with, cowed by no man, including the King.

There were a few parts of the book that were a little repetitive, but I quickly got over that, as I began to really become part of Levenseller's world. The characters are deliciously complex, so that I was at war with myself over whether I liked ANY of them!

This is definitely worth the listen (I love Marisa Calin's accent), and I eagerly anticipate Book 2 - Daughter of the Siren Queen.

Is there a sequel?!?

I loved this! It was really well written: a lot of detail without boring me; seriousness, but with humor mixed in; and it got me to really like the characters (and hate the bad guys).

I’m really glad that found this. I would and probably will read again!

WOW!

Where does Daughter of the Pirate King rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is definitely in my top 10. It wasn't the sort of story that I couldn't stop listening to but I was always excited to start listening to it again. I usually don't write reviews but felt this book earned one!

What did you like best about this story?

What's not to like! Pirates, romance, adventure, and a super strong yet believable female protagonist!

What does Marisa Calin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

This is the first time I've listened to Marisa Calin and I will seek her out from now on. She is one of the best narrators ever. Her voices are perfect for all the characters and each character is different and recognizable. I can't say enough about how amazing she is!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This book was a good casual read. Very enjoyable but not so suspenseful that I had to finish it quickly.

Any additional comments?

If you like Pirates of the Caribbean you'll eat this book up.

This needs to be a movie!

This book was so fun to listen to! It was such an awesome adventure and I loved the characters! I can't wait to continue on with the story to find out what happens! I loved it! I haven't read a pirate story this good before and it really reminds me of the pirates of the Caribbean! I can't wait to get 'Daughter of the siren queen' and come aboard on another adventure with my new favorite pirates!

Nearly constant action!

This was a super quick read. I was really excited to read this, because my favorite house from Game of Thrones is House Greyjoy! This is a typical YA action book that has far more Romance than I expected. I enjoyed it enough to want to read the next book in the series. So why did I rate this so low? The plot really only started to take shape when I read about 60% of the book. I was able to finish it in one sitting. The narrator fit really well. If you like a quick read, and pirates, I'd highly recommend this.

Love, love, loved this!

This book was SO much more than I expected. Completely entertaining with a strong female lead and an exciting, well developed plot. I cannot wait for the second book to come out!
