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
Praise for Daughter of the Pirate King:
"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
"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 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." ―Anna Banks, author of the New York Times Bestseller Of Triton

She treats him awfully.. throughout the entire book.. going so far as to physically abuse him to expell her own anger and frustrations from how others behaved towards her and breaking his only rule.. with very little regard about it or remorse.
I honestly don't know why he stuck around. Cant be just for the sex surely.
She came across as a pretty toxic person..and not too different from the people who had previously mistreated him in the past.
Loved Riden in the previous book but as many authorsq seem to do.. they make the once very confident dominant male character a doormat in order to make the female seem more powerful and in control when its really not necessary and not attractive. So I'm sorry this spoilt it for me..which was a real shame.
I also didnt like how she treated her friends.. especially deshell who looses her sister due to Alosa's plans going awry.. and yet instead of feeling remorse she attacks her and blames her father. While yes his actions have put this story in play..its Alosa who decided the plan and didnt execute it properly or keep people safe.
This girl doesnt seem to have a compassionate bone in her body.
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.
