About this deal

Sarah J. Maas's sexy, richly imagined series continues with the journey of Feyre's fiery sister, Nesta. A part of me felt like a second book was not needed after reading the first book, but I still really enjoyed this book. I think it was somewhat needed because we did learn a lot about Alosa and other characters in the book. The rest of the crew - boys and girls - were so cool and I would have loved to be a part of this crew!

He shouts, “Outside, you fools! It’s the land king’s men. They approach from the south! Go and meet them.” Once known as the Sea Queen, the Siren Queen was a Merfolk prior to the events of The Legend of the Sunken Kingdom. She would attract the attention of an Ancient known as The Great Warrior. The two eventually fell in love, but were separated by their lives on land and sea. As such, they began searching for a means to come together. Daughter of the Siren Queen was probably just as good as Daughter of the Pirate King, though both wavered and weren’t perfect. With both, there would be moments where I’m extremely invested and loving everything going on, only to feel bored five minutes later. Those highs and lows were odd, I have to admit. Regardless, it was still a good story. Holding my knife against a sleeping Vordan’s throat fills me with the sweetest feeling of justice. I move my free hand to cover his mouth. Alosa is on the hunt for Vordan. She spots a little boy searching in the trash and tosses him a coin to keep quiet, he runs away. She slips into Vordan’s room, he wakesThis book starts off with Alosa handing over the last piece of the map to her father and capturing Vordan who reveals something that Alosa can't quite wrap her head around, but it inevitably leads her to move against the pirate king, endangering not only her life but also that of her crew. We also witness her struggle to master the siren part of her that wants nothing more than to join the sea. Each of the three Pirate Lords - the Allemos line, the Kalligan line, and the Serad line - were given a piece of an ancient map that lead to Isla de Canta. (Alosa and her father are descended from the Kalligan line). The smaller of the two meets my eyes, recognizes who I am, and makes a run for it out the main entrance, just past the stairs. Deadly sirens join the ranks of strong, smart females in this book, giving it a definite feminist edge." — Booklist

Turns out Riden isn't leaving with his brother and instead will follow Alosa to the siren island. You know what would’ve been nice, if this had alternating point of viewsVordan.” He’s just as I remember. A man with unremarkable looks: brown hair and eyes, an average build, average height. Nothing to make him stand out in a crowd, which is how he likes it. To be the siren is to never be afraid. To never hunger or thirst. Never doubt or worry. Never fear." This is a story that is waiting to be read, a journey waiting to be embarked of a crew whose members share a bond that is undeterred even by constant threats. When Vordan exposes a secret the Pirate King has kept hidden for years, Alosa and her crew find themselves in a deadly race against her ruthless father. Now their only hope is to find the island and retrieve the treasure themselves, or suffer the consequences.

I value brilliant minds, honest souls, and those with long endurance. I forge relationships based on trust and mutual respect, not fear and control.”The truth in those words is clearly reflected in her relationship with the members of her crew and loyalty and respect they exhibit towards her. It also gives us an opportunity to see Alosa in her well deserved role as captain of her ship. know it was gonna be like this. 😂 Alosa grabs her mom and makes a run for it. She sees Tylon coming and she gives her mom to Riden so they can get to her ship. Alosa Finally, an owl hoot comes. Then another. And another. I wait until I hear all seven of them—signaling that each crossing street and guarded rooftop has been cleared. And Riden. A definite swoon worthy love interest. I loved the parts that had both Alosa and Riden together and it gave me so many warm feelings... *sighs*As was to be expected, this book was a roaring good time. It also got me out of my mini reading slump. Your enchantments last long after your song fades.”-Ryden! Yep, he’s still here. He has a very important role in helping Alosa learn more about herself. This helps their relationship grow in this book in a great way. It’s not always romantic. They also connect in the similarities of their upbringing, which also lets us the readers learn more about them individually.

I think that when you care enough for someone, you reach a point where it's far more painful not to have him at all than to have him and risk losing him. You realize the risk is worth it. Because happiness, however short-lived, is always worth it.” Starting with the characters! ✨ for me the characters in this series are decent, but not amazing. Alosa really began to annoy me in this one- she can be so stubborn and arrogant at times which really annoyed me 🙄 and some of the decisions she made were definitely *questionable*. But she did have some good moments I guess. As much as I don't love alosa tho, I still love riden! 💗 he's so hot 😩😩 and I also feel like he had a ton of growth in this book, which was awesome 💕 Jump, I command Vordan. He doesn’t hesitate. He throws himself over the railing. He lands with one of his legs bent awkwardly beneath him, just as I’d intended. And yes!! She’s still half-siren, which I think is still very cool! How do her abilities help her learn more about herself and the people she loves?

For the Crew

up his brother Draxen from the dungeons of her fathers keep and he and his brother will be freed at the next port. They don’t seem friendly anymore, that makes me sad. 😞 She All of the characters are a bit plain and not really developed, but the fun I had while reading it definitely helped forgetting this. Daughter of the Siren Queen takes place a few months after the end of Daughter of the Pirate King, as Alosa and her crew, set sails towards Isla de Canta, the island of the mermaids. After betraying her father, Alose sees no other solution than to acquire a fortune big enough to defeat the Pirate King, and buy the loyalty of his men as a pirate is usually loyal to the richest. Alosa is devastated to learn her father has been lying to her about something very important. She feels betrayed and extremely angry. I slide down the street, keeping close to the roughly constructed townhome on my right. The city is asleep at this hour. I haven’t spotted a soul moving about, save Vordan’s men on watch.
