Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller - ADVISABLE

Levenseller, Tricia Daughter of the Pirate King (Daughter ofthe Pirate King, #1), 308 pages. Feiwel and Friends, 2017. $18. Content: Language: PG-13 (27 swears); Mature Content: PG-13; Violence: PG-13.  

Alosa has allowed herself to be caught by the enemy pirate ship Night Farer in an attempt to find part of a treasure map that her father, the Pirate King, is in need of.  Alosa is surprised to find that she likes the captain’s brother, Riden, even though they spend most of their time together arguing.  As time runs out for Alosa to find the map, she has to tap into her Siren powers to try and control the men on the boat, but she feels mixed up about her feelings for Riden.  

This book starts out with lots of action and I enjoyed the spunky pirate princess.  I loved the banter between Alosa and Riden and their chemistry is a fun part of the story.  Because of the pirate setting, there is a lot of death with slit throats and torture.  The violence isn’t graphic, but death is handled casually.  The mature content is make out sessions.
