Book Description: 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.

I read Daughter of the Pirate King about 5 years ago and had been meaning to read this one and I finally said this is going to be the year! Let me tell you I was not disappointed and I still remembered what happened in the first one so I wasn’t confused about what was happening (which doesn’t always happen when I have years in between the next in a series).

The story takes off right after the events of the first book. Alosa has succeeded in her mission, but now she has been told a secret that is going to change everything for her. Luckily she still has the sexy Riden onboard, so we get that awesome sarcastic banter between them, plus the undeniable chemistry they have if she would just let herself.  I really enjoyed the secret that was told and how it brought about adventure and mystery to this story. I found myself not wanting to put the book down because I needed to know how this was going to play out!

The plot was well written, it flowed smoothly and it kept the pace up. Even though you find out the big secret at the beginning of the book you still are left wondering if it is true and if so what is going to happen with it. I like that Alosa is now on a mission to not only find out more about herself but also to save part of her ancestry, the Sirens. The description in the book really makes you feel like you can imagine what is happening and how it would play out as a movie or something.

Alosa is a really well-written character, she is strong and even though she doubts herself sometimes I like that she doesn’t dwell on it. She gets over it unlike a lot of strong female characters that will have chapters of them thinking they aren’t good enough. Riden is another great character and he truly has Alosa’s back and is exactly what she needs in her life. Without him, she would never learn to keep the human side of her when she is in the water. The secondary characters in this book are good, we get to see how they really play out in this story and without them it would not be as good.

I definitely recommend this book (really both books) especially if you want fantasy, adventure, good banter, and romance. I wish that this story had another book just because I want to keep reading about these characters.
