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!

The Last Tiara by M.J. Rose

The Last Tiara  by M.J. Rose is inspired by a real missing Russian Crown Jewel. She explains in an article to The Adventurine  how she stumbled upon an NPR article about the disappearance of missing Russian Crown Jewels that to date, have not been found. Captivated by it and how such amazing items could simply disappear she decides her new novel will tell the story of the lost tiara.  It is apparent throughout the book that M.J. Rose researched well the Romanov Jewels, the Russian Evolution, and especially the impact it had on the Russian people. Although she never goes into details, the poverty and difficulties the people experienced at the time are carefully and respectfully mentioned.  The book is told from two different perspectives, that of mother and daughter. The alternating chapters reveal Sofiya's life in Russia from 1915 through 1922, and Isobelle's in 1948 Manhattan, US. First we have Isabelle, an young architect in post World War II Manhattan . While renovating her

How to Catch a Duke (Rogues to Riches #6) by Grace Burrowes [ALC review]

How to Catch a Duke, Grace Burrowes I've been waiting for this book for sometime. Lord Stephen Wentworth's past was mentioned many times in previous books and I was hoping Grace Burrowes would give him a happy ending. After everything he went through in life he most certainly deserved it.  As book opening goes, the one to How to Catch a Duke  had me dying of curiosity instantly: "I have come to ask you to kill me, my lord." Miss Abigail Abbott is no damsel in distress, but she also knows when she can't handle an enemy on her own. She believes the only solution to her problems is to disappear and she trusts Lord Stephen will help her. Lord Stephen is a juxtaposition... charming and brutish, sad and happy, caring and ruthless, the most intelligent and most clueless... Although you don't have to have read any of the previous books in this series to enjoy this one, I would advise you to do so. I think Stephen's personality traits and past will be more touching
