“Your enchantments last long after your song fades.”
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 love this series. Did I mention that I love this series? I LOVE THIS SERIES. I mean nothing is perfect, but I am seriously struggling to pick up the cons of this book.
I sat down to read this book before I started a late shift one day, the aim was to read a good chunk so that I could finish it when I got home. 3 hours late, I finish, without even really thinking about it. I loved Daughter of the Pirate King. I didn’t think that the second would compare. However I actually think that this one was my favourite.
I absolutely loved the writing style, it was so easy to read and I literally did not want to put it down once I picked it up. In fact, who am I kidding? I didn’t put it down once I picked it up. I just kept reading and reading. I love the to the point, action packed stories that Tricia Levenseller writes. You do not have a chance to get bored with unnecessary information. You are told what you need to know and thrown into the action and for me that is what makes a 5 star fantasy read.
I loved that we were back with our characters. I loved that we got to see them grow, especially Alosa and Ridden. That relationship is everything to me, and left me on the edge of my seat a fair few times. I was routing for them so much when in fact normally I’m rolling my eyes at the first sign of any romance. Like I said in my previous review of the first book, this romance felt so natural and not forced which really helped me to be invested in it.
Did I guess what was going to happen? Maybe a little bit. I dont really want to go into too much detail because this is the second book however I didn’t expect to see what happened, happen so early on in the book and in the way that it did. Now I look back I’m not sure why I didn’t but I think I was so immersed in the actions, the characters and the entire world that I didn’t have time to create theories, I just wanted to read more and more.
I think that another thing I really like is that this is a duology. There is no overkill with the books just so the author makes more more. Tricia Levenseller knows when enough is enough and really leaves me with a fantastic reading experience. Her other books have been added to my wishlist and I will be purchasing them soon. I think I may have found myself a new favourite author.
