Where does Daughter of the Pirate King rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This is definitely in my top 10. It wasn't the sort of story that I couldn't stop listening to but I was always excited to start listening to it again. I usually don't write reviews but felt this book earned one!
What did you like best about this story?
What's not to like! Pirates, romance, adventure, and a super strong yet believable female protagonist!
What does Marisa Calin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
This is the first time I've listened to Marisa Calin and I will seek her out from now on. She is one of the best narrators ever. Her voices are perfect for all the characters and each character is different and recognizable. I can't say enough about how amazing she is!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
This book was a good casual read. Very enjoyable but not so suspenseful that I had to finish it quickly.
Any additional comments?
If you like Pirates of the Caribbean you'll eat this book up.

I have to be honest, I wasn't expecting much from this book, as the pirate concept has been overdone to death. But...WOW! The author gave us just enough backstory on our heroine to keep the hook in
The story is told from the POV of Alosa, a fearless, witty, and self-assured young woman who knows who she is and makes no apologies. Though we occasionally get a glimpse of the tender heart lurking beneath her armor, the daughter of the Pirate King is a badass who allows herself to be captured by a band of cutthroat, rebel pirates determined to undermine her father. Throughout the book, Alosa proves that she is a force to be reckoned with, cowed by no man, including the King.
There were a few parts of the book that were a little repetitive, but I quickly got over that, as I began to really become part of Levenseller's world. The characters are deliciously complex, so that I was at war with myself over whether I liked ANY of them!
This is definitely worth the listen (I love Marisa Calin's accent), and I eagerly anticipate Book 2 - Daughter of the Siren Queen.
