In this book feature, I really wanted to highlight a book that I am SUPER excited about, not only because of all the amazing hype its getting, but also because it’s by one of our incredibly talented local Utah authors, Tricia Levenseller!
The Nitty Gritty:
- Title: Daughter of the Pirate King
- Author: Tricia Levenseller
- Publisher: Feiwel and Friends
- Pub Date: February 28, 2017
- Pages: 320
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.
I mean, I was sold at the word “pirate,” but from what I’m hearing, this book is chock-full of action, adventure, and good old-fashioned fun. The main character, Alosa, also sounds so fierce she may even give a pirate we all know and love a run for his money.
So mark your calendars and be sure to add this to your TBR list in the meantime!
