this book was good.... but not as good or as enjoyable as the first. It's a shame as I loved the first, yes it had problems and it wasn't the best story of all time but I loved reading it. it was easy and fast that holds your attention. However, the following book (daughter of the siren queen) didn't give me what I was expecting. it let me down and it disappointed me greatly. I read the first book and then right after the second, so I was really into this world and characters.
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.

Square shaped size/ wrong sizeReviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 April 2021
The size of the book literally makes me want to cry😀 this book is more square shaped than rectangle and is larger than the first book. I don’t know if anyone else has the same issue but i dont recommend buying if you’re a perfectionist.

Exciting snd adventurous!Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 15 May 2018
Loved this book, strong female lead who evokes love and loyalty from her crew. Honestly I've never enjoyed the idea of being trapped on a boat in the ocean but this book has made me reconsider. Life at sea seems both peaceful and terrifying. The ocean holds so many mysteries. I read both books in two days, couldn't put it down or stop thinking about it when o eventually did. I recommend to anyone who enjoys reading about tough, badass sexy woman who fight for everything they get.

Wow just wow i love how this book carried on the story amazingly , a lot of the time sequels are never as good as the first in the series but this one surpassed it by far it carried on the story but added so much more from more character's to more magic to even more humour so if your looking for a fast paced action packed fantasy with a huge amount of laughing the this is defiantly the book series id recommend to every one
