Synopsis

Alosa’s mission is finally complete. Not only has she recovered all three pieces of the map to a legendary hidden treasure, but the pirates who originally took her captive are now prisoners on her ship. Still unfairly attractive and unexpectedly loyal, first mate Riden is a constant distraction, but now he’s under her orders. And she takes great comfort in knowing that the villainous Vordan will soon be facing her father’s justice.

When Vordan exposes a secret her father has kept for years, Alosa and her crew find themselves in a deadly race with the feared Pirate King. Despite the danger, Alosa knows they will recover the treasure first . . . after all, she is the daughter of the Siren Queen.


I may not have been born in the sea, but I was born to rule it.
I am the daughter of the siren queen.

Hi there guys I read this book last year but I’m only getting around to writing the review now. I’m just a lazy person who takes a while to write well thought out reviews. If I didn’t take this long I would have reviews that just say: wow this book is great. Everyone read it. Ok bye.

This book was hilarious, sexy and overall really fun to read. I read over the span of two days because I was enthralled by it. I didn’t think that Levenseller could top the first book, but she did. I had fallen in love with these characters in Pirate King and in this book I got to know them even better. 

Characters

Alosa, sweet Alosa. Sweet may not be the best word to describe her and she probably would not like if anyone called her that. However, I think she’s very sweet for someone who’s both a pirate and a siren, two of the supposedly most bloodthirsty beings in this universe. I enjoyed how her character was both seductive but strong as well. Her crew is another part of the book that I loved so much. Every single one of them had a place in my heart and over the course of the book, I felt each and every one’s pain.

Next we have Riden, who is the epitome of the trope sweet cinnamon roll. He was such a sweetheart to Alosa, even when she didn’t want anything to have to do with him. Something I wish I could have been explored a bit more is his character as it didn’t relate to Alosa. All of his problems only came up when it was in the way of making progress in his relationship with Alosa. One thing I really liked about Riden was his dedication to his brother. He knows Drax is a terrible person but he also knows him as the brother from his childhood. I just love sibling dynamics in books!

I think you love me.
I do.
I think I love you too.
You think?
I know.

Writing/Plot

Love love the writing style of this book. It was so easy to read and everything flowed so smoothly. There was the perfect amount of dialogue and action rolled up into a delightfully entertaining book. I love Levenseller’s writing style and can’t wait to see what else she comes out with in the future.

The plot was fantastic too. I wasn’t at all bored with what was going on and there were times where I was even surprised by what happened. There were also a couple scenes that made me tear up (if you know you know). The book was also paced perfectly and I never felt like it was dragging on for too long.

Overall Thoughts

I thoroughly enjoyed both the books in this duology and I hope that everyone gives them a chance. They were entertaining and a much-needed break from books that were difficult to read and get through. If you’re looking for a smile look no further than these two books.
