Finally. I can finally call myself a real book blogger. I feel like every single book blogger/bookstagrammer and their dog has read this book, and now I can finally count myself among them. I have made it.
And I’m happy to say that I absolutely adored it. I have a favourite female character to add to my army, a new book boyfriend to swoon over, and a new world to get obsessed by.
Daughter of the Pirate King follows Alosa, who is…the daughter of the Pirate King.
She’s also a certified Riot™️, and I’m also in love with her.
Ahem…back to the book. So Alosa is sent on a mission for the pirate king; she is ‘captured’ and held for ransom by enemy pirates, and while playing the Disgruntled Prisoner part, Alosa must search the ship for one third of an important map.
The map obviously promises riches beyond measure because, really, did you miss the whole ‘pirate’ thing going on?
This book’s pacing is perfection; there were never moments of boredom for me, because, honestly, Alosa could make meditating sound exciting. She’s absolutely fabulous; sarcastic and wickedly intelligent, she definitely isn’t the kind of badass that only tells you they’re a badass – she can totally back up that statement. And she’s a badass that loves her clothing! I get so sick of reading about tough girls who hate being girly, you know? I absolutely adored Alosa – she’s going onto my ‘favourite females’ shelf and she’s never coming off it.
Did I mention she has a crew of almost all girls? And they’re also badass? Because she does, and they are.
I’m in love.
I’m also in love with Riden.
I’m just in love with the entire book, to be honest.
I can’t wait for the next book (only about a week to go!); I’m really looking forward to more siren lore and romance and more world building and gah! Just the whole thing.
