A page-turning, seafaring adventure from YA fantasy sensation Tricia Levenseller – the first book in the Daughter of the Pirate King trilogy.
‘Kidnapped my interest from the first chapter and never let it go’ Anna Banks, author of Of Triton
Seventeen-year-old Alosa, daughter of the feared Pirate King, is on a mission. She must retrieve an ancient hidden map, the key to a legendary treasure trove. The catch? Alosa needs to conceal her considerable combat skills and allow 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 luckily, she has a few tricks up her sleeve – and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.

Micky’s 4 star review
This book was just a fun romp from start to finish. It was light, adventurous but with solid plot and characterisation. Alosa was like disney Merida but at sea and older. I enjoyed her feisty behaviour, her leadership and her risk-taking.
There were two brothers in this debacle, one good and one bad. I liked the good one…
It was a pretty bloodthirsty read and any killing was just brushed by but it fit the tone of the piece and the fast-paced narrative.
I didn’t like the Pirate King and I’m wanting more about this from book two; he made me sneer when he was on and off the page. I want to know more about Alosa’s mother, so as I say, parent problems.
Daughter of the Pirate King is the kind of read that sweeps you up for a day or so and you don’t think of other books because it occupies your time and mind.
Thank you Pushkin Press for the review copy.
