My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A fun, action-packed adventure that show that strength can come in any form!
Alosa, daughter of the infamous Pirate King, has been sent on a mission to find a map that should lead to a historic, almost mythical, treasure trove, but in order to complete this mission, she’ll first need to search the ship the map is supposedly on – that of the young Captain Draxen – and leading to her capture.
Once on the ship, Alosa has no problem getting around the crew whenever she needs to search the ship, but she doesn’t count on the first mate Riden, who is able to hold his own against her, nor does she count on the attraction she seems to be feeling towards him…
But Alosa is determined, and being who she is, she has no plans to allow for anyone to stop her from completing such an important mission.
This really was an entertaining read for me, and I absolutely loved the character of Alosa! She was strong, smart, and oh-so-clever! This cleverness helped her more than a few times in this book, and was very much needed when Alosa and the crew of Captain Draxen’s ship come up against a very dangerous predicament. I really can’t wait to read the next book and see more of her cause she’s just so cool!
Riden was also fantastic in his role of First Mate, as well as his part when it came to infuriating Alosa. He is also very smart, and this attributed to some fun conversations with Alosa, as well as a few different incidents that definitely were entertaining.
I really enjoyed the progression of this book, and even though it didn’t actually take place over a large period of time, it felt as if a lot was going on! A good majority of the story took place on Draxen’s ship, so though we’re working with one setting over this short period of time, Alosa was constantly on her toes doing all kinds of things – especially to Riden – to keep me entertained. I loved it!
All in all, I loved this book and definitely am looking forward to book 2!
Obviously I’m going to recommend this!
