Alosa’s mission is finally complete. Not only has she recovered all three pieces of the map to a legendary hidden treasure, but the pirates who originally took her captive are now prisoners on her ship. Still unfairly attractive and unexpectedly loyal, first mate Riden is a constant distraction, but now he’s under her orders. And she takes great comfort in knowing that the villainous Vordan will soon be facing her father’s justice.
When Vordan exposes a secret her father has kept for years, Alosa and her crew find themselves in a deadly race with the feared Pirate King. Despite the danger, Alosa knows they will recover the treasure first . . . after all, she is the daughter of the Siren Queen.
“But I’m faster. I may not have been born in the sea, but I was born to rule it. I am the daughter of the siren queen.”
Even though I didn’t fully love the first installment, I was still pretty excited for this release because Daughter of The Pirate King had a really amazing ending, and I couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen in this sequel, so needless to say, I had to buy and read this book as soon as it came out.
I have to say that I think I liked Daughter of The Siren Queen a bit more than the first book, mostly because I already knew the world and the characters, so it took me much less time to fully focus on the story. Also, I liked the character so much more.
“Three days. My father is possibly only three days away. And our ship is now drastically slower than his.
He’ll be upon us in no time.”
Like I mentioned before, I think one of the things that was a plus for me in this installment was that the characters had a great development and were so much better than in the first novel. I liked Alossa so much more in Daughter of the Siren Queen. I found her less annoying and connected with her much more throughout the story. She also had a great evolution in this book, and though at the beginning of the novel she still wasn’t my favorite, I have to say she grew on me as I continue reading the story.
One of the things I was so happy to see in this book was the relationship between Alossa and her crew. I cannot tell you how good and precious it was, and how much I adored to read about that. They all had such an amazing friendship, and I liked how much they each took cared of the other and protected themselves. I think that was probably one of my favorite parts of the story.
Also I enjoyed the romance so much more in Daughter of the Siren Queen. Since I liked the characters so much more, I found not only their relationship much better, but also their interactions and dynamics throughout the story done so well. I admit some parts were slightly cheesy, but overall it was a great relationship.
“I know that as soon as I allow myself to sit down, the water will consume me, and I will be helpless to take it in. To be the siren is to never be afraid. To never hunger or thirst. Never doubt or worry. Never fear.”
Something that I also really enjoyed was knowing more about the sirens. Since it was quite a spoiler in the first installment, we didn’t get to know much about them in that book, whereas in this one was one of the main focus of the story. And though there weren’t many things involving sirens, I was still pretty satisfied with knowing more about them in this novel.
It was a really fun book overall. It was super fast paced and had a lot of action packed scenes, and it took me a few hours to finish it. I don’t know if it’s a duology or it there’re going to be more books in this series, but after finishing this second book I have to say I’m pretty satisfied with how things ended.
