Bang Bang Rating:
Alosa is the daughter of the pirate king and to prove to her father that she’s capable of being a true pirate, she volunteers to get an important map by allowing herself to become a captive of a rival captain.
Alosa has been training her entire life for this-get on an enemy ship to find treasure. Her father finally has faith that she can pull off this difficult heist of finding a map. Alosa must use brain, brawn, and a particular gift to find the hidden map all the while avoiding love.
Daughter of the Pirate King is a debut novel and Levenseller writes a refreshing fantasy about a strong yet flawed heroine who desperately wants validation from her father. Alosa is the captain of a divers female crew who are all badass. She’s got a smart mouth, a curvy body and she knows how to use both of them.
Pirate King has a great love interest in Ridan who is honorable yet conflicted. Levenseller takes her time to build a relationship between Alosa and Ridan-in other words, no instalove!
There are a couple of good villains including Alosa’s father and Ridan’s brother who also has his own daddy issues.
Daughter of the Pirate King is a good debut with a diverse cast of characters, a great heroine, and strong writing.
