Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map ― the key to a legendary treasure trove ― seventeen-year-old pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows herself to be captured by her enemies, giving her the perfect opportunity to search their ship.
More than a match for the ruthless pirate crew, Alosa has only one thing standing between her and the map: her captor, the unexpectedly clever and unfairly attractive first mate Riden. But not to worry, for Alosa has a few tricks up her sleeve, and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.
In Daughter of the Pirate King, debut author Tricia Levenseller blends action, adventure, romance, and a little bit of magic into a thrilling YA pirate tale.
The ship of Alosa is kidnapped. She bargains her crew’s life for hers after trading kills with Draxen, the opposing commander. Draxen sits back and watches her crew row away. Alosa may appear weak, but he had this prepared. These pirates fell into her hands with ease.
Riden, Draxen’s brother and first mate, takes Alosa below deck to the cells, locks her up, and begins questioning her. When Draxen arrives, Riden admits that he’s gotten a lot of information from Alosa’s answers. She’s astounded by his abilities, but she’s also worked out a few things.

Pirates come and go throughout the day, hoping to catch a sight of her, the pirate king’s daughter. The final guest maintains a casual demeanor while drawing a K on his forehead, the sign of a man working for her father. On the ship, she has a friend.
Alosa steals Riden’s ring and replaces it with one from her ship to gain access to her cell. She climbs onto the deck and into Draxen’s chamber that night to look for the map. He’s sound asleep and doesn’t stir while she searches the room.
Riden’s door pops open as she returns to her cell to grab some sleep. He seizes her. He leads her to her cell and looks for the key. She kneels him in the groin and locks him up in the jail. But it’s meaningless, so she lets him out quickly. Riden is the one who killed his father, she discovers.
The next morning, Riden interrogates Alosa about her father’s relationship with her. She recalls the adversity he put her through in order to train her. She inquires as to why Draxen gained command of the ship after Riden’s assassination. He was the favorite since he was older.
Draxen arrives to interrogate her. Riden delivers her the soap and water she requested for cleaning. Then two guards keep an eye on her. A storm is brewing. The men talk about the dreadful sirens that may be heard coming from the sea. Alosa is the only one who can fall asleep. She considers how the ocean safeguards its own.
Riden continues to deliver Alosa’s meals and interrogate her on a daily basis. They actually interrogate each other, but neither of them accomplishes much. Two guards are assigned to her cell the rest of the time. She slips out at night to look for the map on the ship. Her favorite guards are on duty one night. While Kearan sleeps, she inquires about him with Enwen. He’s discovered from his friend’s sleep talking that he’s travelled all over the world as an adventurer and has lost a lot of money.
Riden enlists Alosa’s help in searching for an abandoned ship they’re sailing beside. If all is clear, the crew will follow to collect anything left on board. Three soldiers were left on board to guard the treasure hidden within the ship’s walls. While Alosa is on deck, they capture Riden and give the crew permission to come over. She comes to his aid.
When the other pirates start raiding the ship, Draxen sends her back to her cell. Riden is perplexed and suspicious of why she rescued him while he was being held at knifepoint. She assures him that she is acting selfishly. Draxen transports two new inmates to the cellblock and assigns a new guard to Alosa’s cell. The one with the two captives is particularly ruthless. Alosa is being guarded by someone who has lusty eyes on her. Riden replaces him with two fresh, gentler guards.
They’re heading to shore for a while, Riden tells Alosa. While the two new guards are playing cards, she picks the cell lock, knocks them out, and escapes above deck. Theris notices her and inquires as to what she is up to. She’s annoyed that her father instructed him to keep an eye on her, but she’s grateful that he’ll divert the attention of the two guards long enough for her to lower the boat and row to shore. He reasoned that she might be able to swim it more easily. She’s curious as to how much he knows.
When she finally lands, she has the impression that she is being followed. It’s three of her ship’s female crew members. They’ve been keeping an eye on Draxen’s ship the entire time to ensure she’s safe. She sends them on their way, leaving a note for her father.
Alosa continues her quest to the city’s raunchy underbelly. Sheck tracks her down. To keep him at bay, she must stab him. After that, Riden appears. She battles him next, but only for show because she needs to return to their ship to continue her search for the map. They both cut each other on the surface.
Riden returns her to her cage on the ship. He cleans her wound before going through her belongings to figure out how she got away. He seizes a large number of weapons and potions. Outside her cell, he posts two guards. She is able to flee once more with ease. He’s waiting for her in the shadows on the deck. He shows her around his room. He can’t trust her anyplace else, so he’ll keep her here for the time being. He tries to charm her for a minute before she turns the tables on him. He describes her as “beautiful as a sea creature.” This awakens Alosa from her slumber. Before he locks the door and goes away, she hears him gently question himself what he’s doing.
Alosa devastates Riden’s immaculately kept chamber, partially in pursuit of the map (which she fails to locate) and partly to irritate him. He’s enraged. She creates noises to keep him awake as he attempts to sleep. Then she starts humming, lulling him into a deep slumber. Since most of the men are still ashore, she snatches the room key from his pocket and searches the ship. She returns empty-handed.
After many nights on the cell floor, Alosa is longing to sleep in Riden’s bed. The next morning, they wake up close to one other. Riden chooses to wipe the deck with her energies. When she refuses, he binds her with manacles. In front of everyone, she shimmies her way to the top of the pole, but he orders her back down. They keep her there for the entire day. Enwen wears a siren bracelet around her ankle at one time. Alosa is in excruciating pain and is on the verge of passing out.
That nightfall, they executed her. Riden leads her into his chamber. He attends to her injuries and apologizes. They make fun of one another for serving the males they do. He claims that he has a legitimate cause for serving Draxen in this capacity. He asks Alosa to be less obstinate so that he can protect her. She sleeps next to him for another night.
They trade stories one for the other. Riden describes his father’s mistreatment of him, his brother, and all of the ship’s sons; how his older brother always stood by him, even sword fighting him when his father was about to murder him; and how he picked up his brother’s fallen sword and used it to kill his father. Alosa describes her father’s grueling training and how she acquired her scars. Then she understands it was all a ruse to get her to divulge information. He claims that it is more real than it should be. She is enraged and unconcerned.
Later that day, Riden returns to take her to Draxen. He interrogates her about her father’s keep. He slams his fist into her numerous times. Every time, Riden raises an objection. She ultimately admits to using a phony address (one she pre-planned with her father).
Riden returns her to his room to sleep. He delivers her soup several hours later. While she sleeps, he starts cleaning up the mess she made. Alosa screams at the top of her lungs about how she’ll just wreck the property again. He confronts her about it. He kisses her after that. She’s taken aback, but she enjoys it too much to ask him to stop. She eventually gives up and pushes him away.
Riden doesn’t return to the room till late, mistakingly believing she has already fallen asleep. He senses she wants him to sleep, and this makes him suspicious. To get him to obey, she has to sing her seductive song. She discovers that the only things he desires in life are love and acceptance. Then she helps him forget about everything that has transpired. Alosa has a burning sensation in her chest and need replenishment. It can only be done by the ocean. Then it tries to persuade her to give in, something she cannot risk just now. Her mother was a siren, thus she’s mostly human.
Riden feels disoriented as he wakes up. Alosa has just returned from surveying the ship for another night. She didn’t have time to put the key back in his pocket, so she sat on his lap and teased him until he did. He tries to change in front of her, but she just turns over.
Days pass with him interrogating her on a regular basis and her toying with him. Each night, Alosa continues her hunt for the map. She’s aware that they’re approaching the fictitious place she provided Draxen. She decides to try to elicit information from Riden by discussing her father’s whereabouts. Riden eventually admits that his father would have kept anything of value on him.
Alosa understands that she must be alone with Draxen in order to search him. She requests Riden’s permission to work on the deck because she is bored. Except for Riden and Enwen, who can see through Alosa’s act, she transforms into a siren and enchants all of the men on deck. Draxen is particularly enchanted. He asks Riden to bring her to him and, in return, tries to charm her. She gives the impression that it’s working. He invites her to see him in his room. They exchange kisses. She uses the hilt of his sword to knock him out. She swiftly goes through all of his clothes. There is no map.
A knock is heard. It’s Riden on the other end of the line. She approaches him on the deck and locks the door behind him. He’s concerned that something went wrong between her and Draxen. She claims she knocked him out because he was getting too handsy. She persuades Riden to return to their room. She claims she’ll be there to answer any queries. She also tries to distract him with her female charms, even turning on the siren for a brief moment to gauge his mood. When it turns off and on, he notices the difference. While they’re making out to knock him out, she sings a single note. She goes through his clothes looking for the map and comes up empty-handed.
Alosa is afraid about her punishment since she knows her father will be furious. She’s finished searching the entire ship. Then it dawns on her… She hasn’t looked around the ship’s exterior. She realizes that the siren statue at the stern would be a great spot to hide. She slips in and uses a rope to drop herself to the ground. She discovers the map in the woman’s glass eye.
The rope is used to lift her to the deck, where she is greeted by the entire crew. For a long time, Riden has suspected she’s planning something. He takes her gaze away from her. They have no idea where their father had hidden it and are overjoyed to acquire it. Draxen requests that she be taken to his chamber. Riden checks to see if Alosa still has her knife in her hand. He tells her she can use it to get off the ship and escape, but he asks her to spare his brother’s life.
They fight when she’s alone with Draxen. She succeeds in knocking him unconscious. She wants to murder him but is unable to do so due to Riden’s desire. She exits the room in search of him. He’s lowering a boat so she may flee. Before sending her father after them, he asks her to give them a head start. She isn’t going anywhere without the map.
As she examines the ship, Alosa activates her siren ability to detect his emotions. He can sense the shift in her that no one else can. As she searches, he follows her and questions her. He finds out about her mother’s powers. He’s worried she’s played with his mind and made him feel emotions he’s never felt before. Except for putting him to sleep twice, she hasn’t done anything. He’s not sure if he should believe her.
Someone comes up behind Alosa and knocks him out. It’s Vordan Serdan, a member of the third most powerful pirate family, who has a piece of the treasure map. Alosa and Riden are kidnapped by him. Vordan is Theris’ guy, not her father’s. He informs them of her deception. Theris claims she is lying when she accepts Vordan’s offer to betray her father and join him.
Vordan intends to use her as a test subject in order to learn more about sirens. He wants her to show off her skills on Riden. When she refuses to participate, he is stabbed or cut. It happens on a regular basis. Vordan discovers her musical prowess, her ability to read emotions, and her seductress prowess. Vordan makes notes as she progresses through each step so that he can learn as much as can about sirens before arriving on the island guarding the gold.
These testing, according to Vordan, will last for weeks. Alosa is heartbroken, and she swears to flee. Riden arrives with a plan the next morning. He is shot twice while carrying it out, but he manages to bring some seawater to Alosa before the men’s ears are clogged. She takes command of a few of the soldiers. She takes Vordan’s rifle and shoots him in the back.
The song by Alosa has ended. She and Riden take off running. Because Riden is injured, she will have to battle her way out. They make it to the water’s edge. There isn’t a boat to be snatched. If she stays submerged in water for a long time, she will totally transform into a siren. They must, however, swim back to the Nightfarer. She almost loses touch with reality, and by staying underwater for too long, she nearly drowns Riden. As they get closer, she sings orders to the crew. They’ve been dragged up by a rope. Riden pauses in his breathing. Alosa helps him by miraculously removing the water from his lungs. She’s been hauled back to the brig.
In the cell, Alosa is shivering in her damp garments. Above deck, she eventually hears fighting. Her posse has arrived to apprehend her. Her guards have gone on duty to battle, so she digs up her lock picks and unlocks her cell. Three of her daughters appear, carrying Alosa’s cutlass. They make their way to the deck to join the battle.
Tylon has also followed them there and is fighting with them. He desires to be in a relationship with Alosa. This is a concept that her father approves of. When the pirate king boards the ship, Tylon is ready to fight. All fighting comes to a halt. He’s there, and Alosa can’t believe it. He requests the map and inquires as to why she had to call for assistance from her staff. She tells the story of her kidnapping. He’s delighted she murdered Vordan, but he’s dissatisfied that, despite her life being in danger, she didn’t spend more time looking for the map on him. Vordan is shown to be an imposter when Alosa describes him to her father. Vordan’s average appearance is mentioned by him. The way he flips a coin over his knuckles is his only distinguishing feature. It’s Theris, it’s Theris, it’s Theris,
Draxen appears in front of them and swoops down. They’re going to fight. Even though Alosa despises Draxen, she can’t help but think of Riden. She begs her father to let her kidnap Draxen and the rest of his soldiers so she may abuse them the same way she was treated. Her skills have never worked on her father, so she contemplates singing to him. She had no idea why. He appears to be pleased with her request and grants it.
