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 liked this one more than the first one, to be honest. It was exciting, romantic, and torturous (in the best way).
One of the main reasons this book was better than the first was due to more action. In the first book, Alosa is locked up on a ship for most of the plot. Here, she’s in control and going on lots of adventures. It made things immensely more exciting, but also lead into the more torturous bits.
This book was more torturous in a good way because more people died. Many beloved characters met their watery death in this book, but that really added to the heartbreaking goodness of this book. It made things more real and “better”.
Anyway, onto my favorite part of this series (or one of my favorite parts), the ROMANCE. Riden…*sigh* He is a great book boyfriend. He and Alosa butt heads in both books but he is still faithful and dedicated to her. I just can’t with him. He is swoony and he had scruff in this book!
Overall, this book was a win for the series. Fantastic romance, great plot, and a fitting ending. I can’t wait for the spin-off books!

I’ve actually never gotten around to this one yet even though I reas Daughter of the Pirate King early when it published. I should, shouldn’t I?

I liked this one better than the first. It had more action and plot which I really appreciated so I would say it’s worth a read
