There is never a dull moment when Jacky Faber is around. Just when you think things can't get worse, they do. There are many exciting twists and turns, but in the end Jacky continues to her next adventure.
An excellent follow up to Bloody Jack. Ms. Kellgren is an outstanding narrator; I felt like I was listening to Jackie herself. I was actually a little peeved at Jackie for some of her decisions, but then in the last third of the book there is a lot happening and I found it difficult to put down. It is a credit to the narrator that I was angry with Jackie and not the author. I highly recommend this book for all ages with the warning that there is some PG13 rated stuff.
I jsut can't say enough good things about this series. I'm smitten with all the close calls and close scrapes Jackie navigates through. Talk about a gal with a heavy dose of bad, and good, luck!
Katherine Kellgren the narrator brings to life the many characters in this story. Just when you think surely Jackie can't get into in more trouble she does. The story comes to life with the interesting details of life in the early 1800's. I am so glad this is a series because I can't wait to see what other trouble finds.
WOW! Just WOW! Katherine you've got some talent, with all the different characters ,voices and different accents! And L. A. Meyer your author skills are top notch! I absolutely LOVE all the excitement and detail that is certainly featured all around this book! I have listened to Curse of the Blue Tattoo over 3 times on the 4th time and am not sick of it at all! A great auther=great book. Great narrator=great audio book, and all that=the book for me!
The continued misadventures of Jacky Faber did not disappoint! The story is adventurous and fun but the narration by Katherine Kellgren as Jacky makes this series stand out. I can't wait to find out what happens!
Just finished listening to the 2nd book in this series. I love these books. The main character, Jacky, reminds me of a pirate version of Anne of Green Gables.
The reader does a truly amazing job. All the voices and feeling. Despite not having the sounds other than voice, she still gives you the feel of radio theater. Awesome.
I loved Book 1. This one didn't have as much action, although I really liked the horse race. There was a lot of repetition in this book, and Jackie kept using poor judgement, which got irritating. She just wasn't as smart as she was in Book 1. The best part of this book is the narration -- Katherine Kellgren is truly wonderful! I especially enjoyed hearing the songs Jackie sang -- Kellgren has a beautiful singing voice. I think I'm finished with the series, though.
kept me interested throughout the whole thing
loved it it was just as good as the original book
