Review | The Daughter of the Pirate King Duology Sets My Sails

The Daughter of The Pirate King / The Daughter of The Siren Queen pirate

By: Tricia Levenseller

Overall Rating: ★★★★

Alosa, a seventeen-year-old pirate captain gets sent on a mission by her father to find a hidden map. Along the way she meet Riden (pirate hottie) and has to navigate the waters (pun intended) of espionage, loyalty, and love.

She also hasn’t fully decided who her true enemies really are, but at least she has her feisty girl crew, pirate-hottie Riden, and her powers to help her along the way to find hidden treasure & power.

Theme Song


If you love pirates, treasure hunts and snappy lady Captains you will love this book. There’s sword-fighting, battle of the wits, and swoon-fests to die for.

The Good


There needs to be more pirate stories in general. I live for Pirates of the Caribbean everything. Alosa and her crew are the female equivalent of Jack Sparrow, Will Turner and the crew of the Black Pearl. If you’re into sailing the seven seas, hidden treasure, and magical mermaid abilities then you will love this story.


Girl Power

Literally every single female character in this series is a badass. Alosa and her crew are all capable fighters and have wits to match. Even the male crew members are feminist, never underestimating their captain or their female peers (not to mention one of them is a single dad and has the most adorable pirate daughter of all time!)

Now let’s move on to the sirens, with their beauty and voices that kill, yet their caring and love for each other is just as fierce as their fight.

If you’re into strong female characters, this series has it.



HOTTIE PIRATE. THAT IS ALL I HAVE TO SAY. He’s cunning, loyal, caring and I will swoon for days over him if you let me. You will be adding him to your book boyfriend list the second you meet him.

The Bad


I’m one of those readers that wants to know every single detail about every single character for every single second of their life. If I’m invested, the more pages the better. I wish some of the larger plot lines had a bit more explanation – but take this with a grain of salt because not every read appreciates the little things!


The Ugly Truth

This was a fun, quick pirate story and I wish there was more. If you’re looking to satisfy the need for anything that has to do with sailing, sword fights, or sirens, I’d recommend this series.
