A 17-year-old pirate captain intentionally allows herself to get captured by enemy pirates in this thrilling YA adventure.

Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map—the key to a legendary treasure trove—seventeen-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.

Debut author Tricia Levenseller blends action, adventure, romance, and a little bit of magic into a thrilling YA pirate tale.


3 Reasons You Should Read…

Daughter of the Pirate King
by Tricia Levenseller


  • You know how much we love a good debut and Tricia Levenseller delivers a GREAT one. Well written, swoony, and everything we hoped it would be and more. You’re going to fall hard for this one, you guys.
  • Let’s talk characters for a minute. Alosa. Alosa. Alosa. We LOVE her. She’s sarcastic, smart, and full of gumption- everything we love in a leading lady. Add that to the swooniness of Riden and you have a recipe for success.
  • We could come up with a ton of other reasons you should read this one, but we can’t let you go without telling you how much we loved watching the relationship between Alosa and Riden develop. It was a nice slow burn, which we love, and their banter was perfection. Let’s just say that you are going to find yourself very invested in them. We sure are! (IS IT TIME FOR NEXT BOOK YET?!?)
