Well HELLOOOOO there lady Jack Sparrow! That right there was an instant hook for me right there on the front cover. But again… Anyone who follows me is very aware of my pirate obsession. I actually came across this book after I subscribed to Owl Crate. I was looking at their past boxes and saw the pirate themed one. Believe it or not, I did not purchase it but I did get my hands on this book and the sequel ( that’s the next review going up today. Yes I’ve already read both books). Lets take a look at the description:
“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.” – Description from Goodreads
I had a lot of fun reading this book. Some people say it had a slow start, but I was hooked instantly. I loved the sarcasm of the main character. She was intelligent and quick-witted. I absolutely adored Riden as a character. This book was jammed packed with adventure on the high seas and had a couple of twists. The book ended with a slight cliff hanger but luckily the sequel is already out. I am going to give this book 4 out of 5 stars because setting the stage for a series can be a bit tedious and/or repetitive at times but I really did love everything about this book. Plus the main character has red hair… Red headed pirates unite!! (Yes I’m referring to myself there)
