Sequel Spotlight #2: Daughter of the Siren Queen

There are just so many incredible sequels coming out in 2018! After a lot of flailing with Kristin of Super Space Chick over the many upcoming sequels we're excited for, we decided it could be fun to start a monthly feature where we got to spotlight the ones we're most excited about. And that's how Sequel Spotlight was born! Each month, we're going to be talking about a newly released sequel, and letting you know either why we're excited about it or why we loved it (if we're already gotten the chance to read it). Without further ado, let's dive right in to this month's featured sequel - Daughter of the Siren Queen (Daughter of the Pirate King #2) by Tricia Levenseller.

The first in this series tells the story of Alosa, a captain who deliberately gets herself captured by the enemy in order to board their ship and search it for a piece of a very important treasure map. Hijinks and high seas are what you can expect from this story, and I really enjoyed it! So, it's no surprise that I was dying to get my hands on the sequel to find out what happened next for Alosa (and her crew).

Why was I excited for Daughter of the Siren Queen? I already hinted at this a little bit, but I was dying to find out what would happen to Alosa and the rest of her crew. The first book ends on a very thrilling note, and it definitely made me want to pick up the sequel in order to find out what would happen as a result of all the shenanigans and revelations.

What did I think of Daughter of the Siren Queen? I absolutely adored it! It was compulsively readable, and there were so many things happening (surprises, good and bad, as well as exciting action scenes and more tense emotional ones) that I just devoured it. I thought that Levenseller did a wonderful job giving us a crew to fall in love with, and developing Alosa as a character that really comes into her own (again). And, of course, I loved the relationships! The familial bond of the crew, as well as the slow (slow) burn romance, and even the complicated relationship Alosa has with her blood family. It was, altogether, a very neatly written book, and I enjoyed it so, so much.
