The last couple of books in the series had sections that dragged but this one is pretty much nonstop action at sea (my favorite setting!) It's almost believable that with all the adventures Jacky has had, she would run into old friends (and enemies) in practically every chapter. There is even a cameo appearance by a hero of the Patrick O'Brien sea series. And there are some great new characters, including a Chinese pirate queen, who apparently is a real historical personage. Kellgren never disappoints as the only possible voice for this series!
Definitely. The narrator truly makes the story.
None like it.
The end. I like ending that aren't expected. You would have assumed she would have finally rushed to marry Jaime. But not!!
This is such an entertaining, engaging series, full of adventure! The narrator does a wonderful job with ALL of the voices. I am particularly impressed with the fact that her voice as Jackie is consistent, even when Jackie has different accents, and that Jackie's voice is separate from other characters with similar accents -- if that makes sense!
Katherine Kellgren is a fantastic narrator
All other Bloody Jack books.
The songs and various dialects
No, they are just great fun. Other books in the series dealt with deeper subjects. e.g. Slavery and racism.
I love this series, Jackie is a strong and stubborn heroine, not so fond of the boy she is chaseing, he seems insipid to me. Every book has been good. Look forward to every new installment
even my boys love to read about jackie, but be warned she is unconventional and there is some semi adult situations in these books. My Nine year old wants to marry jackie Faber.
Jackie is irrepressable and unstoppable, as usual, but the tension of her and Jamie's unconsumated love is getting old. I found myself questioning the plot more than i did with the earlier books. Katherine Kellgren's performance remains stellar.
I am a fiber artist and teacher. I love moderate action, plot twists, diverse characters and much romance.
I loved best what I have loved about all the other Bloody Jack audio books (2 things actually). First, Jackie, the heroine. Just go meet her; you'll see what I mean, Second, Katherine Kellgren's performance--it's like a one woman radio play. Amazing. Third, (Ok, so I lied when I said 2) L.A. Meyer is just a great writer. Even in the later books when you are pretty sure Jackie really isn't going to really die this time, listening to Meyer's imaginative ways to get her out of things and his accessible-yet-not-insipid-in-any-way style keep you hanging on to every word.
Well, If I told you, it wouldn't be very sporting of me. Trust that there are the usual complement of more-or-less trustworthy navel officers, good friends, fiendish scalawags and pirates to keep you interested.
Brilliant. I cannot believe how consistent she is with her voicing from one character to the next, as well as one book to the next. Lovely singing as well.
Well, it's really more fun than moving, but, even so, it has it's moments.
This really is the reason I joined audible. Our state's digital library only had books 1-7 available, and they said they couldn't get this one (though I notice they have it now), and, man, these are addictive, I NEEDED #8. I see #9 is now available. Off to download it right now. Oh, yes, I am.
