This is the first time I have actually annotated a book. I will put in this review what I made a note of so that you can enjoy my weird mind. I gave this book 5/5 stars.
Alosa’s mission is finally complete. Not only has she recovered all three pieces of the map to a legendary hidden treasure, but the pirates who originally took her captive are now prisoners on her ship. Still unfairly attractive and unexpectedly loyal, first mate Riden is a constant distraction, but now he’s under her orders. And she takes great comfort in knowing that the villainous Vordan will soon be facing her father’s justice.
When Vordan exposes a secret her father has kept for years, Alosa and her crew find themselves in a deadly race with the feared Pirate King. Despite the danger, Alosa knows they will recover the treasure first . . . after all, she is the daughter of the Siren Queen
Below are some parts of the book that I thought interesting or noteworthy. My thoughts are in italics. The quotes are in bold. This may contain spoilers and some foul language.
Pg. 3. She tossed a coin to this little boy while she was trying to take care of all the spies. I was yelling at my book, “You idiot! Trust no one! I bet he is working for the enemy!”
Pg. 5. I was right about pg. 3! “Fucking told you, Alosa!”
pg. 10. I nearly spit out my water on this page. Sorinda blew up a gaggle of Vorden’s Men. “You go, girl! Get em!”

pg. 45. She is finally starting to doubt her asshole of a father. “You are letting him brainwash you, Alosa!”
pg. 71 I sing a booming note, something that wong go unnoticed by anyone in the vicinity. Adderan rises from his chair and runs face first into the nearest wall. The contact splits open a thin line on his head, but it doesn’t render him unconscious. I want him fully awake when I humiliate him. “I’d like to see that in person.”

pg. 82. Alosa finally admits to herself that she wants Riden.

pg. 92. There are different kinds of fathers. Those who love unconditionally, those who love on condition, and those who never love at all. “I was wondering when this quote was going to get repeated from the first book.”
pg. 106. Alosa just called her dad a beast of a man. “That’s weird, dude. Weird!”
pg. 113. Riden and Alosa are having a dick measuring contest. >.>
pg. 117. Riden stands up for himself after Alosa throws her emotional self at his feet. “Good job dude. You kiss him even though YOU KNOW HOW HE FEELS ABOUT YOU. You’re an idiot. I am proud of Riden for saying no.”
pg. 128. More dick measuring…
pg. 131. “no fucking comment.” Yes, I actually wrote that on a sticky.
