I loved the series. This is the type of book that is better listened to versus read because the narrator takes the story to the next level. Best narrator I have ever heard. The narrator of an audiobook can really help or hurt the book. This narrator helped the series.
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.
