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.

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

Square shaped size/ wrong sizeGranskad i Storbritannien den 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.

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
