Daughter of the Siren Queen is the highly anticipated sequel to Daughter of the Pirate Queen and it lives up to the hype!
The first thing I want to point out is the gorgeous cover! I loved the cover of Daughter of the Pirate King but I love thic cover SO much more! If you haven’t read DotPK this story is about Alosa, a half human half siren on the hunt for a hidden island full of unknown treasures and to find her mother, the Siren Queen. Can you take a guess who Alosa’s father is? I’ll give you three guesses.
That’s right, he’s the Pirate King! And he is the most ruthless pirate I have ever had the pleasure of not knowing personally. Because I obviously know a lot of pirates anyways. Alosa comes upon some knowledge that her father has done some serious misdeeds in her life and they are unforgivable. Alosa and her crew high tale it towards the mysteriously unknown island through unchartered waters with her father and his fleet hot on her tail (see what I did there o_0) after Alosa stole a valuable item from her father.
With this they go on crazy adventures through this unknown part of the world and happen upon some brutal storms and a crazy island that I won’t say any spoilers but it gets REAL DARK at this point. Like I had to put the book down and think for a couple minutes and process what I had just read because it’s bonkers. Not something I had anticipated from this story honestly. And it is one of two reasons I gave DotSQ 4 stars instead of 5 because I felt it got a little too dark for such a fun quick light read.
But no matter. The story is still amazing and the characters are extremely loveable. Alosa has her moments in this book where she is mega bitchy though. The other reason I gave this a 4 star instead of 5 like it should have deserved. Even though her character is supposed to be sarcastic and sassy and empowering to women I felt at times she was overly aggressive in the story, especially towards Riden who is Bae and continually shows her…. ahhhh I’m going to give it away. Just, go read it because I love Riden.
I believe that we are going to see a lot more amazing novels from Tricia and I for one will definitely be reading them!
