Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Expected Date: February 21, 2017
If you want something done right . . .
When the ruthless pirate king learns of a legendary treasure map hidden on an enemy ship, his daughter, Alosa, knows there’s only one pirate for the job—herself. Leaving behind her beloved ship and crew, Alosa deliberately facilitates her own kidnapping to ensure her passage on the ship, confident in her ability to overcome any obstacle. After all, who’s going to suspect a seventeen-year-old girl locked in a cell? Then she meets the (surprisingly perceptive and unfairly attractive) first mate, Riden, who is charged with finding out all her secrets. Now it’s down to a battle of wits and will . . . . Can Alosa find the map and escape before Riden figures out her plan?
So this book, of course, had me at pirates! I spent the better part of a year reading as many books with pirates as possible and I’m a sucker for anything set on the high seas. With a self-assured protagonist and an attractive male in her way, I cannot wait to see what all will ensue! Plus this past #BBTC got me even more pumped for this story!
