Waiting on Wednesday – Spotlight on Daughter of the Pirate King
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.
My “Waiting On” Wednesday selection for this week is Daughter of the Pirate King by Tricia Levenseller. I had never heard of this book prior to receiving an advert from Netgalley last week. As soon as I read the review below from Anna Banks, which describes the heroine Alosa as a lady Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean, I ran to request an ARC. That just sounds way too good to pass up. Sadly, I didn’t get approved for the ARC, but thankfully only have to wait until February to get my hands on this book.
Daughter of the Pirate King
by Tricia Levenseller
Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map―the key to a legendary treasure trove―seventeen-year-old pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows 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 not to worry, for Alosa has a few tricks up her sleeve, and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.
Debut author Tricia Levenseller blends action, adventure, romance, and a little bit of magic into a thrilling YA pirate tale.
Check out this Advance Praise for Daughter of the Pirate King:
“Readers should rejoice, because we now have a lady Jack Sparrow on our hands!” — Anna Banks, author of the New York Times Bestseller Of Triton.

I’d love to hear what upcoming book releases you’re waiting on this Wednesday? Leave me your link in the comments below and I’ll stop by and check out your WoW selection for this week. 🙂
Daughter of a Pirate King sounds damn exciting! And the cover is striking isn’t it? Here’s mine http://editingeverything.com/blog/2016/12/21/waiting-wednesday-allegedly-tiffany-d-jackson/ — which I think you might’ve told me about in the first place!
Doesn’t it sound fantastic? I was sold as soon as I read “lady Jack Sparrow”!
This book sounds incredible! I love that it features a female pirate and that cover is absolutely gorgeous! I hope that you enjoy this one. 🙂
Right? The whole idea of a female pirate is just such a huge draw for me. Makes me think of Lila from A Darker Shade of Magic.
I’ve heard so many great things about “Daughter of the Pirate King” from people who received a ARC. I can’t wait to get my hands on it.
Happy readings! 😉
Same here. I hope it’s as great as it sounds. Happy reading to you as well!
I’m eagerly anticipating this one as well! I can’t say no to pirates 🙂
Same here! As soon as I read the blurb, it immediately made me think of Lila from ADSOM.
I really loved this book, so I hope you enjoy it as well! It’s a super fun read ^_^ Great WoW pick!

So glad to hear you loved it 🙂
This does sound fun and I saw it over at Because Reading’s blog and I think she gave it a good review, if I remember. It does look good.
I’ve read a few very positive ARC reviews for it as well, so hopefully that’s a good sign. 🙂
I love the sound of this book – and that cover is stunning, its already on my wishlist 🙂
Right? That cover is gorgeous! Here’s hoping we both love this one 🙂
Oh, a female pirate! How intriguing. I’ll be curious to see what people think of this one. 🙂
Same here. Fingers crossed that it’s as entertaining as it sounds like it’s going to be 🙂
