Inhaltsangabe zu „Daughter of the Pirate King“ von Tricia Levenseller

There will be plenty of time for me to beat him soundly once I've gotten what I came for. 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. In 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.

Nicht schlecht, aber auch nichts Besonderes. Für zwischendurch aber ganz nett! :)

Kurzweilige Geschichte mit interessanter Hauptfigur. Ein bisschen vorhersehbar, aber den zweiten Teil werde ich auf jeden Fall auch lesen.

    Seventeen-year old Alosa allows herself to be captured by her enemy to search their ship to find a special map for her father, who happens to be the pirate king. This book is different from any other books I've read so far. First of all, it is about pirates. I never belived I could enjoy this topic so much. It was so much fun to be on board of a ship, to learn all the words pirates use and to follow Alosa on her adventure. Secondly, you got a lot of Pirates of the Carribean vibes, which I loved a lot.The characters are very important to the story. Alosa is a wodnerful main character. She constantly struggles to hide her real strenght from her captors, she is fierce and fearless, she really is the perfect female Jack Sparrow. She never shuts her mouth, is a very badass female characters and knows her way around. She has now regrets killing people and reminds me a lot of Celaena Sardothien from the Throne of Glass series.The first mate from of her enemy, Riden, is also a very handsome character. He teases her, tries to uncover her secrets but he does it in a way every girl would fall for him. He is loyal to his brother, the captain but he also struggles with his past and tries to hide all of his feelings.The chemistry between both of them is amazing. They fight each other fiercly, they have battles using words and they really are the best. The humor and sarcasm in this novel is amazing. The writing style is fast paced, Alosa tells the story so we know about her feelings all the time. Nevertheless we don't know all her secrtes and they slowly get uncovered throughout the story. This novel is really a jewel. If you look for a pirate book with a badass main character, that is the one for you!

    This book is undeniably adorable. Every now and then something completely different is released, something that stands apart in writing and plot terms and, most of all, entertainment. It hasn´t always to be epic fantasy or moving coming off age. Every now and then it´s enough for a story to simply be fun and pull you under for the time being. Daughter of the Pirate King is one of those books to immediately sweep you off your feet with fast pace, hilarious banter, a little bit of magic and a kickass heroine. Every now and then I crave a pirate book anyway. Growing up with Jack Sparrow as a role model and Hook hijacking Once Upon A Time means developing a clearly romanticized, but nevertheless undying love for those who conquer the seas. Pirate stories also taught us that a great tale doesn´t have to focus on an unlikely love story between a bewitching young lady and a handsome, but piss poor guy. Nah, instead they showed that twisted tales, cunning characters and a single minded love for ships and water can be enough for a story to function. Who cares about kings and queens and their desires to fight wars for small strips of land when a vessel, a crew and a whole ocean of possibilities lie beneath your feet? Pirate stores convince with the value of friendship, loyalty, a dash of selfishness and the necessary, perfect amount of magic. At least the good ones do. Fortunately, Daughter of the Pirate King can be counted as one. We get nothing of the sappy romantics, of cliché love declarations and exaggerated acts of foolishness. Instead there is a heroine who knows her strengths, ignores possible weaknesses, stays true to herself and is capable of doing whatever she sets her mind to. Just because she wants to. I love Alosa. She doesn´t need men to save her and just spits them in the face if they laugh at her. Her loyalty lies with her family and herself and she hasn´t any qualms about getting her hands dirty. This books is pure entertainment that refuses to bore you at any second. There´s stealth, action, a lot of kissing, even more bantering, hilarious situations and - as it is supposed to be, after all - the all consuming ignorance about who has the upper hand. They all want the same, but cleverness can´t be bought and comes in different forms. I adored every single sentence of this captivating book. The world´s an ocean and the ocean is a world. It´s simple as that, apparently.
