Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map, the key to a legendary treasure trove, pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows herself to be captured by her enemies. Now the only 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.

I had high hopes for this book, but ultimately it fell flat for me. The concept is fun, and of course I'm 100% behind female pirates. But the biggest problem was that the MC has absolutely no weaknesses or vulnerability. Every time something happened to her, she *meant* for it to happen and has carefully arranged things to go that way. It undermined any attempt at tension within the novel, and made the character flat and pointless. Additionally, two-thirds of the way through the novel, things took an abrupt turn and some pretty big plot holes resulted. That turn revealed one weakness/vulnerability of the MC's, but it also gave her nearly unlimited power. I really wish this had more developed character and plot, so that I could enjoy the fun swashbuckling bits without feeling like everything these characters did was pointless. Ah, well.

I absolutely loved this book. Granted, there is a lot more romance than I expected (and I'm not normally big into romance), but it didn't take away from the storyline. I thought all the twists and turns worked nicely, and I found myself loving the tension, along with the adventure. There are paranormal elements that come into play, too, and it was amazingggg.
Definitely recommended to someone looking for a sassy and fun pirate read.
