Praise for Daughter of the Siren Queen:
"This lady Jack Sparrow is back, and she's fiercer and wittier than ever!" ―Elly Blake, New York Times bestselling author of Frostblood
"Levenseller is just as much a siren as her protagonist―her words will pull you in, and there's no escaping them." ―Charlie N. Holmberg, author of The Paper Magician Series.
"Levenseller comes into her own in this sequel to Daughter of the Pirate King (2017), penning an argh-worthy blend of pirate derring-do and lively romance. ... Deadly sirens join the ranks of strong, smart females in this book, giving it a definite feminist edge." --Booklist
"The author has yet again captured the adventure, romance, and ruthless ways of the high seas in this sequel to Daughter of the Pirate King. ... This fast-moving adventure with strong female characters would be great for those who love a good pirate story, a touch of romance, and action-packed sword fighting." ―School Library Journal
"This is for fans of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise who will definitely be on board with this female Jack Sparrow and her crew." -- VOYA
Praise for Daughter of the Pirate King:
"Readers should rejoice, because we now have a lady Jack Sparrow on our hands! Daughter of the Pirate King kidnapped my interest from the first chapter and never let it go! It's a superior debut with a deeply entangled romance, a fearsome heroine not to be trifled with, a clever hero that you seriously want to trifle with, and a plot twist that makes a rollercoaster seem stable. With a cunning plot, robust writing, and complicated characters, any reader will enjoy being manipulated in Levenseller's capable hands. Definitely for fans of Pirates of the Caribbean, fierce heroines, slow-burning romances, and adventures that can turn sour in the space of a gasp. Not for fans of complacent heroines, soothing plots, or those who don't speak sarcasm." ―Anna Banks, author of the New York Times Bestseller Of Triton
" Levenseller has created a formidable female character who can take care of herself as she makes some hard decisions. Hand to skilled readers seeking true adventure with swashbuckling, sword fighting, and a great problem-solving heroine." ―School Library Journal
"Levenseller makes an impressive debut with this funny, fast-paced, and romance-dashed nautical fantasy, set in an alternate world of pirates, sirens, and myriad islands....This one’s not to be missed." ― Publishers Weekly, starred review
"Tricia Levenseller's vivacious debut novel, the first in a duology, boasts stormy seas, sexy pirates, swordplay and a heroine who conquers all three with aplomb.... A rip-roaring high seas escapade with a tinge of fantasy, Daughter of the Pirate King will engage and enthrall its teen audience." ― Shelf Awareness

the main character felt different, she was (especially at the end) easily scared and beaten in fights. even though she would say that she is the greatest fighter and wasn't scared of anything. that she was the daughter of the pirate king, trained for any situation.
it was all tell and no show. she kept saying that she can do all these things and yet would refuse to do a thing that would literally save her precious crew, but doesn't because she's scared. it felt wrong and forced and didnt make sense at all. and it started to really annoy me greatly. to the point where I almost stopped liking her. which is crazy as I loved her in the first book.
another thing that rubbed me the wrong way was Riden. the conflict that happened between Riden and the main character, that both have feelings for the other, felt forced and not believable at all. the author would create these situations and have the two character act OUT of CHARACTER just to create tension. it was just terrible. it felt wrong, Riden wouldn't act like that at all. the author turned this character that was interesting and fun to annoying and unlikeable.
