I have been super excited for this release, probably one of my top twenty-five anticipated releases for 2018. I loved Daughter of the Pirate King, more than I thought I would so I was fully geared to expect awesomeness from the final installment of this duology. That cliffhanger gave me a serious complex…
Picking up where we left off, Alosa gathered the last piece of the ancient map leading to the treasure, now on the set up to pleasing her father and being the pirate princess she was destined to me. Riden and his brother are being held captive on Ava-lee, along with the villainous Vordan. Vordan of course stirs the pot, telling Alosa a secret she wasn’t prepared for, thus leading to seeking the treasure for herself with her fathers fleet close on her tail.
On the surface, Alosa is very put together personality. In charge, passionate about her crew, the goal but in her mind she is raging whirlwind of conflicts. Both with her feelings towards the secrets, who she can and cannot trust, her growing feelings for Riden and the hovering Siren persona bustling to come out and take over her human-self. I was elated, completely beguiled with her story; intoxicated with the adrenaline, turmoil and adventure that she goes through.
Then we have the delicious Riden. Oh be still my speckled dark heart – Riden was absolutely my favorite aspect in all things that was Daughter of the Siren Queen. Don’t get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed Alosa and their connection, but honestly Riden was perfection. He was deliciously yummy. Between his conflicted feelings with Alosa, sailing with her as well as battling his own demons to get what he wants, he just made the novel for me. On top of that, back to the chemistry that is Riden and Alosa – well shimmer my timbers. I was completely entranced by the the angst moments, the banter between them down to the secret tender moments that made my heart soar.
Oh my ‘lanta – it was enough to sink any ship with the feels these two were putting off. I lived for their secret moments of exhilarating banter or tension filled passion. I WANTED MORE DAMNIT!
I can also say that the action was non-stop for the crew aboard the Ava-lee, it was one thing after another; every turn of safety something else came crashing down, literally, and all I could do was sit there, shaking my head thinking ‘bloody pirates’. Not only was the action on the boats in the sea but we finally dive into the ocean and see the magical atmosphere of Alosa’s siren side.
Well comrades, I can honestly say that without a doubt this was deliciously enjoyable read. Daughter of the Siren Queen was perfectly captivating with laughter, romance swoonage and witty adventures that left me begging for more. It is just a super fun, amusing read that gives all the right amount of feels with a perfect blend of genres in the young adult world without overshadowing or over compensating the twist of the plot. Tricia Levenseller sailed my heart to the great sea and to which I raise my jar and say – MORE RUM PLEASE – YO HO YO HO, the pirates life for me!
