Summary

There will be plenty of time for me to beat him soundly once I've gotten what I came for.

Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map - the key to a legendary treasure trove - 17-year-old pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows herself to be captured by her enemies, giving her the perfect opportunity to search their ship.

More than a match for the ruthless pirate crew, Alosa has only one thing standing between her and the map: her captor, the unexpectedly clever and unfairly attractive first mate Riden. But not to worry, for Alosa has a few tricks up her sleeve, and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.

In Daughter of the Pirate King, debut author Tricia Levenseller blends action, adventure, romance, and a little bit of magic into a thrilling YA pirate tale.

Amazing

I wasn’t sure about this book when I first got it but wanted something to listen to and I ended up loving it. I haven’t gone for anything like this before and it didn’t disappoint me. Some of the accents of characters I wasn’t sure about but it actually added to the story and made it more enjoyable to listen to. Overall I really loved this book and want to listen to much more like this in the future!

Great narrator 'Meh' story

The narrator did an excellent job. I liked the protagonist and her 'boyfriend'. The chemistry between them worked well... but the story itself wasn't that good.

WOW!

Where does Daughter of the Pirate King rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is definitely in my top 10. It wasn't the sort of story that I couldn't stop listening to but I was always excited to start listening to it again. I usually don't write reviews but felt this book earned one!

What did you like best about this story?

What's not to like! Pirates, romance, adventure, and a super strong yet believable female protagonist!

What does Marisa Calin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

This is the first time I've listened to Marisa Calin and I will seek her out from now on. She is one of the best narrators ever. Her voices are perfect for all the characters and each character is different and recognizable. I can't say enough about how amazing she is!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This book was a good casual read. Very enjoyable but not so suspenseful that I had to finish it quickly.

Any additional comments?

If you like Pirates of the Caribbean you'll eat this book up.

Wow!

I have to be honest, I wasn't expecting much from this book, as the pirate concept has been overdone to death. But...WOW! The author gave us just enough backstory on our heroine to keep the hook in

The story is told from the POV of Alosa, a fearless, witty, and self-assured young woman who knows who she is and makes no apologies. Though we occasionally get a glimpse of the tender heart lurking beneath her armor, the daughter of the Pirate King is a badass who allows herself to be captured by a band of cutthroat, rebel pirates determined to undermine her father. Throughout the book, Alosa proves that she is a force to be reckoned with, cowed by no man, including the King.

There were a few parts of the book that were a little repetitive, but I quickly got over that, as I began to really become part of Levenseller's world. The characters are deliciously complex, so that I was at war with myself over whether I liked ANY of them!

This is definitely worth the listen (I love Marisa Calin's accent), and I eagerly anticipate Book 2 - Daughter of the Siren Queen.

Very bleh.

I went in with hope that this book would live up to the claim of "a female Jack Sparrow " but I was disappointed. The protagonist was constantly talking about how clever, smart, strong, powerful, and amazing she is but honestly all she really was is cocky. The romance was very forced and unbelievable. The dialogue felt very unnatural and even the action and adventure aspects of the story were lackluster at best. Don't even get me started on the ending. It was as if the author said aloud "well that's enough words for this one, better start on the next." It was abrupt and lacked any real build up. It's not the worst book I've ever read but I wish I could get those 7+ hours back. Save your credit. This one isn't worth it. The narrator was decent enough though.

Nice Adventure

I heard so many things about this book, some were praising it and others were bored with it.. I am kind of in between, I did enjoy the adventures of Alosa in the middle of a dangerous pirate ship and her struggle to complete her mission to gain her father's approval, but on the other hand Riden didn't charm me at all for some reason :/, he felt so weird and there was no connection between the two until the last moment
The story is about a girl named Alosa who is the daughter of the Pirate King ( hence the name of the book) when she embarks on a mission to find a piece of a treasure map that can be found in a pirate ship, so she stages her kidnapping and she is forced to endure all kind of stuff to complete her mission
let's see what will happen next

The narration was nice and appropriate for the book, but it could've been better

This needs to be a movie!

This book was so fun to listen to! It was such an awesome adventure and I loved the characters! I can't wait to continue on with the story to find out what happens! I loved it! I haven't read a pirate story this good before and it really reminds me of the pirates of the Caribbean! I can't wait to get 'Daughter of the siren queen' and come aboard on another adventure with my new favorite pirates!

Fun Listen!!

I’m over 50 and didn’t realize this audiobook was targeted for teen listeners, but I found it a fun story with a surprise half way through. The surprise made it like a whole new story with new adventure.

I thought the narrator was quite good.

I wanted more, but it was okay...

This was fairly mediocre. We spent a vast majority of the book on the ship, in a cell, with Alosa—even though she reminded the reader how bad-ass and intelligent she was at every chance she could.

I enjoyed the love story with Alosa and Riden. I also enjoyed the twists at the end.

One major thing that I’ll remember from this book is that I felt like the latter half of the book was preparing you for the sequel in the duology (siren queen) , instead of giving the reader a more concrete conclusion to first book (pirate king).

Furthermore, I will read the second one, because I feel like the first book really set the reader up to enjoy the second (If that makes any sense at all).

Very immature

It was very immature ... in writing style & the characters themselves. While it could have been saved if the story line was slightly believable, i just cant get into something like this.

Decent Book, fun ride for the most part

I liked this book book, but there was just something about it that made me like it less. I dont know if it was the narrator or the main character that rubbed me the wrong way, but that's the only reason I'm giving it a lower rating. overall I thought it was a fun story and I adored the male protagonist and the personalities from her kidnappers. If you like pirates and mermaids, this book is a great choice, it just didnt blow me out of the water so to speak.
