Waiting On Wednesday No. 178: Daughter of the Pirate King, by Tricia Levenseller

This is a weekly event hosted by
It showcases future releases which
we book bloggers
are eagerly anticipating!!

Here's my choice for this week!

 Daughter of the Pirate King  
Hardcover, 220 pages 
Feiwel & Friends
February 21, 2017
Fantasy, Historical Fiction, Romance, 
Young Adult Fiction

A 17-year-old pirate captain intentionally allows herself to get captured by enemy pirates in this thrilling YA adventure.

If you want something done right . . .

When the ruthless pirate king learns of a legendary treasure map hidden on an enemy ship, his daughter, Alosa, knows there's only one pirate for the job—herself. Leaving behind her beloved ship and crew, Alosa deliberately facilitates her own kidnapping to ensure her passage on the ship, confident in her ability to overcome any obstacle. After all, who's going to suspect a seventeen-year-old girl locked in a cell? Then she meets the (surprisingly perceptive and unfairly attractive) first mate, Riden, who is charged with finding out all her secrets. Now it's down to a battle of wits and will . . . . Can Alosa find the map and escape before Riden figures out her plan?

Debut author Tricia Levenseller blends action, adventure, romance, and a little bit of magic into a thrilling YA pirate tale.

Why I'm waiting on this one!

      Just saw this comment. Well, to be honest with you, I don't like this cover that much. The story, though, is GREAT!! I LOVE pirate stories!! And ESPECIALLY if they contain kick-butt heroines! YAY!!!!!

      I haven't heard of "The Reader", but, since it has pirates in it, I'm definitely interested! I'll check it out on Goodreads. Thanks for the rec!!
