Alosa’s mission is finally complete. Not only has she recovered all three pieces of the map to a legendary hidden treasure, but the pirates who originally took her captive are now prisoners on her ship. Still unfairly attractive and unexpectedly loyal, first mate Riden is a constant distraction, but now he’s under her orders. And she takes great comfort in knowing that the villainous Vordan will soon be facing her father’s justice.

When Vordan exposes a secret her father has kept for years, Alosa and her crew find themselves in a deadly race with the feared Pirate King. Despite the danger, Alosa knows they will recover the treasure first . . . after all, she is the daughter of the Siren Queen.

Set sails for fun! It’s time to read Daughter of the Siren Queen! And let me tell you, it is way more fun than the first book in this duology. The book continues where we left off but we get to see more of the Ava-Lee, her diverse crew, and Alosa’s father, who you will love to hate. We also learn more about Alosa’s maternal side and about what it really means to be a siren. The character development was wonderful, especially since Alosa and Riden were broken. I especially have to praise Tricia on not giving into the insta-love. I loved seeing Riden and Alosa struggle to get a relationship going as that’s a rare thing in YA literature. The plot was engaging and interesting. It never stagnated and you find yourself sitting on the edge of your seat throughout the whole book. The pacing was also wonderfully done. It was not too fast, but fast enough to not lose your interest. The book also has some diverse characters and it expands on world building this awesome world.

The only downfall I have about this book is that outside of the islands and the sea, not much of the rest of the world was defined and that the ending seemed a bit ambiguous. There was also a bit of a plot hole in how the ship got its name, but other than that it did much better with plot holes than the first book.

Verdict: While I wanted more from this book, I was left feeling satisfied and feeling like I should set sail to find my own Ava-Lee.
