Synopses & Reviews
Levenseller makes an impressive debut with this funny fast paced and romance dashed nautical fantasy set in an alternate world of pirates sirens and myriad islands. Alosa the 17 year old daughter of an infamous pirate king embarks on a dangerous undercover mission allowing herself to be captured by a rival crew in order to retrieve part of a legendary treasure map. Alosa believes she has the situation under control thanks to years of training and experience as well as certain special abilities but she finds her match in the Night Farer’s first mate Riden who seems wise to her tricks. The resulting game of wits results in a burgeoning attraction as Alosa tries to carry out her mission without giving away her secrets (“If I’m to keep up appearances I’ll have to escape the ship. Then get caught on purpose. Oh the ridiculous things one has to do when one is a pirate” she laments). Resourceful and confident Alosa swaggers through the pages with style and panache and her supporting cast is just as delightful. This one’s not to be missed. Ages 13–up. Agent: Rachel Brooks L. Perkins Agency. (Feb.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
There will be plenty of time for me to beat him soundly once I've gotten what I came for.
Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map--the key to a legendary treasure trove--seventeen-year-old pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows herself to be captured by her enemies, giving her the perfect opportunity to search their ship.
More than a match for the ruthless pirate crew, Alosa has only one thing standing between her and the map: her captor, the unexpectedly clever and unfairly attractive first mate Riden. But not to worry, for Alosa has a few tricks up her sleeve, and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.
In Daughter of the Pirate King, debut author Tricia Levenseller blends action, adventure, romance, and a little bit of magic into a thrilling YA pirate tale.
