In this sequel to the well-loved Daughter of Pirate King, Alosa has completed recovering the final piece of the map that will get her father’s fleet to the infamous Isla de Canta where the treasures of the Sirens awaits. But Alosa discovered a secret her father has been keeping to her all her life- a secret that made her turn her back to the Pirate King and flee for her crew’s lives and her own. Along with Riden, the man, only man, Alosa might learn how to use her Siren powers to use it against her father.
♦♦♦♦♦ MY THOUGHTS ♦♦♦♦♦
I loved Daughter of Pirate King so much but I loved this one even more. Thus the additional half star. Let me state the things I loved in this book. It was expected that we’d see more of Alosa’s Siren personality this time. I realized, I love Alosa as a pirate but I love her as a Siren Pirate more. Like I said above she had to use her Siren power now in order to win. Also I realized how much I missed Alosa and Riden.
I like how Riden affects that personality of hers. Maybe it’s already a common plot point but I find it really sweet when only the hero(or heroine) can do something about the other one’s flaws. And oh my God, the Romance between these two, though the banters were less, they’re more romantic than ever. Riden is still that guy who can soften any woman’s heart, maybe even monster’s hearts. 🙂 And Alosa’s still her badass, sassy self that I loved in Book 1. Though she seems a little less arrogant than I knew and it’s a good thing because I remember reading reviews of book 1 with complaints of Alosa’s arrogance. Maybe because this time the author’s also not in her head so much. In book 1, the narration literally gives away everything.
I also need to acknowledge the improvement on fight scenes. Not that the fight scenes in book 1 were not good, it just they’re so much better this time. So well done. 🙂 I enjoyed reading more of Alosa’s crew. They’re more amazing than Riden and Draxen’s crew and even the Pirate King’s himself. (Duh?!?) I might have rated this 5 stars but I wanted the last fight to be a little longer. Not that it’s lacking, it was actually intense especially when someone I adore was shot…. anyway, I just wanted more. 🙂 🙂
Overall, I highly recommend this book (series). If you enjoyed To Kill a Kingdom, you will enjoy this series even better. Or if you didn’t enjoy or maybe DNFed Daughter of Pirate King as I’m aware of the complains against it, maybe it’s time to pick it up again and then read this sequel. The improvements are apparent and you won’t regret it.
