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.
This book kind of came out of nowhere for me. I initially noticed it for the cover. It was moody and badass so I mentally added Daughter of the Pirate King to my TBR. Then ALL OF A SUDDEN, my Goodreads and Twitter feeds started blowing up with mentioned of how addictive and fun of a read it was. Fortunately, I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy from the publisher (Thanks, Fierce Reads!!) so I pulled it from my TBR tower and dove right in. I was eager to see what all the excitement was about and if it really was as amazing as everyone was saying it was. So, was it? Keep reading for my answer. But first, as always, check out the epic mood board I created to get you in the piratey mood! YES, I said piratey and YES it’s word. At least it is now.
Nicole Castroman brings the dangerous pirate ports of the Caribbean to life in this vibrant sequel to Blackhearts—the reimagined origin story of history’s most infamous pirate, Blackbeard.
Edward “Teach” Drummond is setting sail to the Caribbean as first mate on the most celebrated merchant ship in the British fleet—until he rebels against his captain. Mutiny is a capital offense and Teach knows it could cost him his life, but he believes it worth the risk in order to save his crew from the attacking Spanish ships.
Sailing on the same blue waters, Anne barely avoids the Spanish attack, making it safely to Nassau. But lawless criminals, corrupt politics, and dangerous intentions fill the crowded streets of this Caribbean port. Soon, Anne discovers that the man entrusted to keep the peace is quite possibly the most treacherous of them all—and he just happens to hold Teach’s fate in his terrifying hands.
Life and death hang in the balance when Teach and Anne are given a dangerous mission. It’s a mission that will test their love, loyalty and devotion, forcing them down a path neither one could have ever imagined.
Not gonna lie, I’ve been looking forward to this book for a LONG time. Ever since I read “Blackhearts” over a year ago and fell in love with Nicole Castroman‘s writing, I’ve been dying to read the sequel. You can read my review of Blackhearts here to see exactly how much I loved it and at the very end you’ll also see how nervous I was that there wouldn’t be a sequel. Thankfully, my worries were put to rest when I heard about “Blacksouls” and all I had to do was WAIT! So, was the wait worth it? Could I possibly love “Blacksouls” as much as I loved “Blackhearts”?
