#BookReview: Vengeance of the Pirate Queen (Daughter of the Pirate King #3) by @TriciaLevensell

Synopsis: Pirates of the Caribbean meets The Mummy in Vengeance of the Pirate Queen, a beautifully designed standalone YA fantasy romance, set in the world of Tricia Levenseller's Daughter of the Pirate King

You can’t be afraid of the dark when you’re the monster lurking in the shadows.

As an assassin working for the pirate queen, eighteen-year-old Sorinda is surprised when Alosa’s next task for her is not to kill a new target, but to captain a handpicked crew on a rescue mission. Unfortunately, her sailing master is twenty-year-old Kearan. He may be the best helmsman the pirate queen has, but Sorinda finds him a real pain in the arse. Sadly, there are few places on a ship to hide from an attentive man.

As the crew of the Vengeance faces dangerous waters and deadly sea creatures, they accidentally awaken the King of the Undersea, a being who can control the dead. Their rescue mission quickly turns into a fight to save the world, but first, Sorinda must save herself from becoming an undead queen.

My Review: 
The only thing that could have made this better would have been if we got more of the characters from the first book. Don't get me wrong they are here but not as much as I was hoping for. But that being said this would make a wonderful new series spin off. I would also love to see these characters grow and maybe this hedging into NA territory. I enjoy stories that grow with the reader. This was a wonderful addition to that original series and I could not put it down!! This one was ruthless and devastating and wonderful!
