Here's a book with exuberance, girl power, and a surprising and lovely drizzle of magic! Alosa is a delightful blend of spirited and thoughtful; she's one of my favorite YA protagonists in a long time. There's a lot here about family dynamics, legacy, and self-reflection, all set against a quickly spinning adventure on the sea. Themes of friendship and loyalty here remind me (in a good way) of middle grade, and while there's romance, it doesn't eclipse everything else. I can't wait to learn more about Alosa, and her siren ancestry, in the final book of this duet! ( )

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 ( )
