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—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
I really enjoyed listening to this book! I’ve had the physical copy on my shelf for a while, but when I realized the audiobook narrator was the same person who narrated the Ruby Red trilogy, which I adored, I knew I had to switch gears.
I loved Alosa and Riden, of course, and enjoyed every single one of their interactions. The world-building was excellent, and I was hooked almost from the start. It was a little frustrating at how long it took Alosa to find the map, and how long it took her to even think of looking in some places that I would have thought of immediately to look (i.e. on Draxon’s person), but obviously since that was the entire plot of the book if she had found it too fast then it probably would have been very short and boring. It gave time to meet all these characters from the Night Farer and grow to enjoy their presence in the story, and of course, for the romance to be stirred.
This was a fun, pirate-filled, swashbuckling story that had me eager to listen and ready for more adventures with Alosa.
