Goodreads Summary

A 17-year-old pirate captain intentionally allows herself to get captured by enemy pirates in this thrilling YA adventure.

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.

My Review

WOW! This book blew me away. I loved it. Alosa is captivating, cunning, and represents herself well. She is a fascinating character.  I also loved Riden.  He is intriguing and I enjoyed the love/hate relationship he and Alosa had.  Pirates are SO cool.  Some are a little more on the rough/icky side, but that did not stop me from enjoying this book immensely, it is quite the page-turner. There is action, romance, and thoughtful twists and turns on every page.  I loved how the author would gradually reveal secrets throughout, and whoa, one secret was so amazing!  The whole book is just exciting and I didn't want it to end.  I can't wait for the next book.  

Content: recommended for older teen readers and adults.

5 out of 5 stars.
