“There will be plenty of time for me to beat him soundly once I’ve gotten what I came for.Official GoodReads Synopsis
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. “
For anyone who has read the Glass Throne series, this is like the pirate equivalent with much less magic, which I honestly preferred and only 2 books not 10,000… OK I’m being dramatic but how many books are there now? Moving on, the plot is close to the same; a highly trained, bewitchingly beautiful teenage girl with daddy issues and a secret.
Alosa, the main character is optimistic, confident, willing to put forth the effort needed to succeed and quick witted, which I enjoy in female characters. She is strong and doesn’t need anyone’s help.
The male lead, Riden was a perfect match for her character. Equally as swashbuckling but feeding her sensitive side by taking action when she was too proud to admit she needed him.
I’d have to say though, I do not agree with the “Lady Jack Sparrow” line. She is NOTHING like Jack Sparrow. First of all she’s not drunk, she doesn’t rely on blind luck, she is always putting her crew ahead of herself and she only wo’Man’izes when it gets her closer to her goal. She is also not nearly has hilariously confused as Jack Sparrow.
