Daughter of the Pirate King
Levenseller’s impressive debut is a thrilling nautical fantasy set in an alternate world of pirates, sirens, and myriad islands. Alosa, the 17-year-old daughter of an infamous pirate king, is the captain of her own ship with a mostly female crew. Her mission is to retrieve an age-old piece of a legendary treasure map. Alosa's father is in possession of one-third of the map and when he learns that the remaining part is hidden on an enemy ship, he sends his daughter on a dangerous undercover mission to retrieve it. Alosa allows herself to be kidnapped so she can search the ship for the missing fragment. But she's met her match in the ship's inconveniently attractive first mate Riden who seems wise to Alosa's tricks.
