Pirates are an all time favorite for me. I don’t know what I love about them, but I absolutely love them. And a book about a pirate princess is like the “holy grail” for me. This story had a great plot and great potential. And for the most part, it did not disappoint.
I do want to state one thing: There is a difference between cocky and confident, and this pirate princess was very, very cocky herself. She talked about how great she was all the time and how she could get any guy she ever wanted (which actually made sense more towards the end when they drop a bomb on you). But.. she didn’t have any flaws? She wasn’t really relatable to me as the reader?
The romance was instant and weird. I wasn’t a fan of that whole side of the plot.
All in all, like a lot of my reviewer friends have stated, it was a little young-sounding, but I did enjoy it and I will read the next book when it comes out. The whole “what Alosa actually is” is super interesting to me, and I wish it was touched on more. I am hoping that this is just an introduction book and there is going to be some depth in the next books coming our way.
