4 Stars.

Daughter of the Pirate King was just a straight up fun read! I'm not going to blab on here and instead just dive into breaking down what I liked/didn't like.

Soooo, the plot. As a fun, fast-paced read with sword fights and treasure hunts and general pirate stuff - yes, this book features it all, but... I have to agree with other readers about this book being a little repetitive in regard to plot points. For the first 220 pages or so, the stuff that happens does become more and more familiar, though, after the 220 page mark, it does pick up and concludes really well. I didn't mind that the plot was repetitive because the book felt like it was supposed to be fun and just an enjoyable reading experience, especially with how short it is, so yeah, just a lot of fun (I think that is going to be the key word in this review).

What really carries this book is the fantastic characters and witty dialogue that never stops. Alosa is such a great character and I loved reading her voice and experiences. Riden, Daxton and all the other pirates came in well, and whilst there wasn't a big focus on some of the other pirates, I still felt like I got a really good snapshot of everyone.

The mythology was woven in well and interesting. The author has a very pleasing writing style - very easy to read and follow.

All in all, if you're a reader looking for a fun, quick pirate read, then Daughter of the Pirate King is definitely for you. I won't deny that I'll be reading on more for the characters than the mystery of the plot and I can't wait for book 2 and more pirate action!
