I really don’t know where to start with this book. I wanted to much to like it, but it took me just over a month to finish and I didn’t mind reading other books while this one was in progress. For the first three weeks I wasn’t past page 60 but was finishing other books without issue. I found Alosa, the daughter of the pirate king, insufferable.
Alosa should be a great heroine. She’s smart and sassy, and a pirate. What’s not to like? Her know it all attitude is what bothers me the most. No matter what the other characters say or do, and though she is locked in the brig, she’s always a step ahead.
The other characters in the book, mainly men, seem downright stupid and lazy, except for Riden. From page three the sexual tension was forced and made me roll my eyes every time. The predictable storyline, Alosa’s “secret”, the capture of her and Riden, all of it was very boring to me. All 308 pages I was hoping for a page turner, something I could get through quickly and enjoy. I’m sure it’s a great book for some one out there, but for me, a story about a female pirate should have been intriguing and I found Alosa and the storyline lacking.
