When Alosa, daughter of the famed pirate king, is captured by a group of enemies she's not worried. After all, she planned her own capture so that she could find a legendary treasure map that her father desperately wants to uncover an incredible treasure. She uses this opportunity to search her captors' ship and learn more about her father's enemies while building her own reputation for the day that she will take over from her father. She has more than enough skill and cunning to find the map and escape, but when she starts to fall in love with Riden, the first mate and captain's brother, it might be the one thing that can get in the way. She finds the treasure map, but the ensuing challenges force Alosa to reveal secrets and use skills she'd rather not have to save herself and the people she has come to care about.

The book can be dark and gritty, just like the lives of real pirates, but also has elements of fantasy and romance. Alosa is the teenage girl equivalent of Jack Sparrow: smart, witty, but with less of an objection to killing anyone who gets in her way. Readers who have a problem with violence will likely have a problem with how often the pirates kill their enemies without batting an eye in this book. The romance takes over a significant part of the story, but the way their relationship builds over the course of the book works well with the rest of the plot. The story isn't meant to be taken seriously as much as it is to be enjoyed for a fun pirate story with a strong heroine that can handle anything that gets thrown at her. Readers who enjoyed this book will look forward to the sequel to find out more about what happens between Alosa, Riden, and Alosa's father. The sequel will also have plenty of room to explore the treasure hunting aspect of fictional pirates that wasn't fully explored in this one. Overall, this is a fast-moving story with enjoyable characters and a taste of the pirate life. ( )

This was SO MUCH FUN, oh my god. There were one or two weird moments where one of the sick burns was "you're so effeminate," but all in all I really enjoyed this. I loved how Alosa thinks--she's basically Captain Marvel in terms of sheer power but she spends the book trying to make the menfolk think she's just a lil' ol' prisoner, nothing to see here, I'm harmless.

Also pirates! And sirens! (The sirens aspect was done so well.) And there's a sequel! (That I will be getting my hands on ASAP.) ( )

I decided to pick up this book so that I can read some more Owlcrate subscription books.
I enjoyed the story, and I am looking forward to reading the second from the duology.
I like the hate to love trope, it is very well, and the slow-burning love is written well.
Yes, Alosa's training and using her powers are things that we have read in other YA stories. Taking the Serene story from Greek mythology and using the wax as Odysseus did to pas the island of Skila and Harvidi is a good idea.
Alosa is a compelling main character and a very strategic one. She will be a good opponent in a chase game; she always thinks ten steps forward her enemy.
I like the author's writing, and I know I will read other books that she will write. ( )

Alright - this book wasn't bad it was a bit confusing in the beginning, trying to be multiple things at once I felt, but then you get to know the book and the characters and it wasn't what I had originally thought going in. There was a grammar error that I absolutely hated "more faster" just killed the book for me more than it should have. Though I did enjoy reading it and some of the lines in there were hilarious, and Alosa and Riden were great, Enwin (sp) was awesome too. I just hoped for more I think I'd give it a 3.5 and I do plan to read Siren Queen ( )

I thought that this was a really interesting and fun read. I love stories about pirates and I wish there was more stories about female pirates. I don’t just mean a pirate crew that has both men and women, but a pirate crew that is made up of women. Which is what captain Alosa’s crew consists of. With only two men in her entire crew.

This story is told from the perspective of Alosa, a pirate captain and the daughter of the pirate King. Who has been sent on a mission to find a piece of a map, by her father, that will lead them to a centuries worth of treasure that has been hoarded and protected by sirens. Alosa has to pretend to be kidnapped by the pirate Lord Draxen so that she can find the piece of the map that has been passed down his family for generations just like the piece her father has.

Alosa is very strong minded and driven, loyal-to-a-fault and will do whatever she must to get her hands on the map and to complete her mission. She’s also feminine, loves to look and feel her best, and can kick ass like any other pirate.

I honestly loved Alosa’s character in this book. She kept me constantly on my toes as she changed from being the spoiled, bratty captive princess to the witty, brilliant pirate captain. I loved that she was in control for so much of the book. Misguiding her captors and interrogator/love interest, Riden (Draxen’s younger brother and first mate). I loved that she was constantly escaping, changing it up when she was “caught”, and hunting the ship for this map piece.

I liked that it was set in an alternative fantasy world to ours. I think that the things I loved the most about this world was that pirates rule it. It’s a world where whoever controls the sea controls everything, there is a land king but their power is limited and constricted by Alosa’s father the pirate king. I loved that there is sirens in this world and they are portrayed as being beautiful, cruel and otherworldly.

This book had a pretty simply plot and was very character driven. It was a fun fantasy pirate story that I really enjoyed reading. I would recommend this book if you enjoyed To Kill a Kingdom and the Pirates of the Caribbean. ( )
