This week I am waiting on
Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller
Publication Date: February 21st 2017
A 17-year-old pirate captain intentionally allows herself to get captured by enemy pirates in this thrilling YA adventure.
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?
I love a good adventure and pirate tales always sound so thrilling and unpredictable. As with most pirate tales the mission is to get their hands on this legendary treasure. I’m interested in seeing how Alosa stages her kidnapping and exploring the dynamic between her and Riden.
What’s your most anticipated book?
