Daughter of the Siren Queen by Tricia Levenseller -5 Stars

Daughter of the Siren Queen
I am late to the party I know... but it is hard to get so many books read at once. I am sure all of you
book fanatics understand that :)
Daughter of the Siren Queen is the conclusion to Daughter of the Pirate King. If you liked the first book there is no way you are not going to love this one too!


Synopsis:
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.

Sirens and Pirates and action. What is not to like? The story was as fast paced and entertaining as in the first book. It is action packed but also fun and full of heart.

"THE SOUND OF MY knife slitting across a throat feels much too loud in the darkness."

Alosa continues to be the same stubborn and courageous pirate she was in Daughter of the Pirate King. To me the main difference between her here and in the previous book is that here it becomes more obvious that Alosa don't really know how to be loved. Riden tries and she constantly pushes him away because of her fears and doubts. I thought that added to her character. 
She is a fierce pirate with a heart of gold. Her crew will always come first and she will be the worst and most brutal person there is if it means protecting them.

Riden... oh my! He is so open and honest. His kindness and care towards Alosa and the crew (even when she pushes him away) made him essential and wonderful to read. I love how much she needs him but genuinely can't for the longest time figure out why! It made me laugh and swoon.

This was an adorable YA read and I cannot recommend it enough.
If you, like me, are a little behind on your tbr, do put this one up the list!
