Strong female characters, triumph over evil, plenty of action. Who could want more. ( )

Definitely 100% leaps and bounds better than Pirate King - however, there were a bunch of spelling/grammar errors that just drove me insane. The story overall was amazing - it was a unique take on a siren - I have never read something like that before. There was a lot of mayhem and it was very exciting, though a lot of it was predictable it was still entertaining. Definitely a nice way to finish the series. ( )

I just want to start off by saying that I didn’t enjoy this book as much as the first in this duology. I still think it was a good book and I enjoyed reading it but there were just some parts of the book I didn’t like and I didn’t feel as invested in this book I was the first.

This book starts not long after the end of the first book, with Alosa and her crew hunting down Vordan to capture him and his piece of the map. I felt like Alosa’s character had shifted since the end of the first book. As she is no longer having to pretend to be a captive and gets to be her ruthless self.

Alosa continues to be a witty, smart, beautiful, swash buckling, pirate princess. The only difference is is that she doesn’t have to hide aspects of herself like she did in the first. In the first book it is revealed that Alosa is half siren and has siren abilities that she has control over as long as she’s not in the sea. If she is in the sea she looses her humanity and the siren takes over. In this book she struggles with learning how to stay human when in the sea, because it becomes essential for her survival and the survival of her crew.

I really loved that in this book we got to spend time with Alosa and her crew. Allowing us to actually get to know her crew/friends/family in this book. Whereas in the first book there is only small interactions between Alosa and her crew. I knew while reading it that she cared for them but not to the extent that is in this book. Because Alosa will do anything to keep her crew safe and alive. The crew of the Ava-lee is a good example of the found family trope, a trope that I love by the way, there is 32 crew members so not every one gets fully fleshed out but each on has been hand picked and recruited by Alosa over the years. Each one means something to her. They are her friends and family, each loss that she feels she feels deeply.

With Alosa being in a deadly race to the island with her father and his fleet the death toll is pretty high in this book. I think that the worst one, for me to read, was when they found one of the women being eaten by three cannibals. I had a feeling that that was what had happened to her when she went missing, but that it stop me from feeling a queasy and disgusted.

This duology doesn’t really shy away from death or violence, so if you can’t handle this then I don’t think you’ll enjoy this book.

Now, I loved that some of the characters from Draxen’s crew joined Alosa’s at the end of this book and were still important in this book. (It really annoys me when characters end up sticking around and you can tell that it’s just because an author likes them or is going to kill them off and they don’t really add anything to the plot.) Kearan and Enwen became crew members of the Ava-lee at the end of the first book, and are important to the story. Kearan as a navigator that have his own arch of becoming sober. And Enwen as being Alosa’s friend, and seamlessly becoming part of the crew. I also have a soft spot for him. As he was one of the few that were genuinely kind to Alosa in the first book when she was being kept captive.

Riden is also very prominent in this book. He continues to be Alosa’s love interest and he does decide to be a part of her crew. I really liked that Riden realised that as much as he loves his brother he needs to put himself first. Riden does have a chance to leave with his brother but decides to stay instead. I loved that Riden found his own feet, became a part of the crew, and was able to work through his feelings for Alosa and come to terms with her being part siren. He struggled a lot with it and pushed Alosa away because of her abilities. They frightened him as it reminded him of the abuse and helplessness that he faced at the hands of his father.

I really liked that both Alosa and Riden where able to begin to work through the trauma and scars that their fathers’ have left behind. I think that they were able to help each other a lot and it allowed them to understand the other better.

Their romance/relationship was very up and down. Neither of them seemed very good at voicing their thoughts to the other. Riden, I’ll admit, was better than Alosa at admitting his feelings. But that is probably because Alosa was mainly ignoring just how much she felt for him as she doesn’t verbally admit her feelings to him until the last 100 pages or so. The romance isn’t a major aspect of the story, it’s definitely a slow burn sub-plot, so if you’re hoping that it’ll be more prominent in this book than the first then you might be disappointed.

There were some hints in the first book that Alosa’s father doesn’t love her and only claimed her as his daughter because she is useful to him. And this book shows just how little he actually cares for her. He sees her as a weapon to be used and controlled and nothing more. He is not the loving father that Alosa had that he was. She might have loved him but he never loved her. Which is pretty heart breaking. Especially as the book is in Alosa’s POV so you really get just how much heart break she feels.

I loved that Alosa got to met her mother and get to experience what it is like to be loved unconditionally by a parent. Her mother may not feature much in the book but she is integral to the plot. Without Alosa meeting and freeing her then she never would have learnt the truth about her father. Or decide to break away from him and his control to live on her own terms.

The sirens end up being very different than what Alosa, and the reader, is lead to believe. Alosa only has her own experience of losing control in her siren form and tales from men about sirens. In the first book sirens are said to be cruel, brutal and bloodthirsty. All they want to do is have their fun, drown sailors and take their treasure. In this book sirens are still shown as being inhuman and deadly but they are also compassionate and care for their own. They might not be human but that doesn’t stop them from feeling. Because they haven’t been brought up on land they don’t have conflicting sides to themselves, they don’t lose control like Alosa does.

I felt that at times it was repeatedly explained how Alosa replenished her powers, it felt a little bit like over kill. Also the process of how Alosa tried to learn how to control the siren side of her got pretty repetitive. I just got a bit annoyed with it.

I enjoyed this book but I wasn’t as invested in it as the first one. There were times that I felt that it dragged and very little happened. But overall it was a very fun and enjoyable read. I would rate the series 3.75 out of 5 stars, just because this book I felt wasn’t as good at the first.

I would recommend this duology if you enjoyed To Kill A Kingdom, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Blood and Sand. Or if you enjoy YA Fantasy Adventure books about pirates and siren then you probably will enjoy this series. ( )

I did enjoy the sense of adventure this story conveyed, and the world building was great. The humor and dialogue were entertaining enough to keep me reading. Even though the story became a bit predictable, it was able to keep me engaged enough to want to know what would happen in the end.

A GREAT read (dare I say, better than the first book). Action packed as any pirate adventure book should be with just enough gore to make you cringe once or twice. You fall in love with each of the main cast as they are introduced to the reader throughout the book. The push-pull romance is maddening at times and is beautifully written. Very well done! ( )
