Daughter of the Pirate King (Daughter of the Pirate King #1), by Tricia Levenseller

Publish Date: February 28, 2017 (audiobook published July 18, 2017)
Published by: Feiwel Friends/Macmillan Audio
Audiobook Narrated by: Marisa Calin
Length: 7 hrs 25 min (311 pages)
Genre: YA Fantasy
My Rating: ★★★★★ (4.5 out of 5 stars)


Synopsis:

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


My Review: 

I really enjoyed listening to this book!

Pitch Darkby Courtney Alameda

Publish Date: February 20, 2018
Published by: Feiwel & Friends
Pages: 384
Genre: YA Sci-Fi
My Rating: ★★★★☆ (4 out of 5 stars)

**I received this as an egalley from the publisher through Edelweiss in return for an honest review.**


Synopsis:

Tuck has been in stasis on the USS John Muir, a ship that houses Earth’s most valued artifacts—its natural resources. Parks and mountains are preserved in space. 

Laura belongs to a shipraiding family, who are funded by a group used to getting what they want. And they want what’s on the Muir.

Tuck and Laura didn’t bargain on working together, or battling mutant aliens who use sound to kill. But their plan is the only hope for their crews, their families, and themselves. 

In space, nobody can hear you scream . . . but on the John Muir, the screams are the last thing you’ll hear.


My Review:

In all honesty, when I first looked at the cover of this book and started reading the description, I thought it was going to be cheesy. But then by the end of the summary I felt an almighty need to read it. I mean, the idea of monsters that use sound to kill?? How cool is that!
