I am in love with James Alexander Malcom Mackenze Frazer.
I debated on this series for several years, I am glad I got it and I am looking forward to the next book. Jackey is loveable and endearing
LA Meyers must loathe the woman he basedJackie on. That's the only scenario that works. Each book after Curse of the Bloodhound is worse. Jackie's strength dissolves, replaced by cravenness. Sad because the reader is AMAZING, & the series was as well
Maybe, it hurts to loste a character you loved
She is absolutely incredible
Good story line butchery of main character
Can't wait to see what happens to our girl, next...plan to go back and re-listen to all the books, when I finish the series, so far...
Jacky, since she is a good role model, in many ways for girls.
Fabulous...makes listening worthwhile...would not enjoy as much, reading the books, I think.
I love this series so much that I listen without my 10 and 13 year old boys sometimes which, is a good thing, as Jackie's 'romantic' interest this round is a courtesan turned female pirate. When my son asked me what Jackie meant when she talked about being 'petted a lot' I was thrown...The Asian angle is wonderful but as she grows up I like her less and less. It is still a great series but this is my least favorite.
After a few shaky outings is is nice to see this series get back on track. Some of the relationships are getting stale, but overall this was a lot of fun.
This series is a guilty pleasure for me. I do agree with some of the more critical reviews that this installment lacked some of the vigor of the other books. This book is brief compared to others in the series. I have just finished the 3rd book and have begun the 4th, and I've never listened to the first book - so please consider this in context compared to yourself before spending your money or credit. Now, this is the weakest story of all the books I've listened to, but Kellgren saves the day with her performance. Don't look to be wowed by this story, but it will be necessary to listen to as the next book will pick up at a key time in the history of the region she is travelling to in the early 1800s. Hopefully, Mr. Meyer will regain his passion for the story in the region and time. And, Jamie will need to be at the forefront of the next book or omitted completely for something to work well. Best of luck, Mr. Meyer. I do recommend the book, but temper your expectations.
I have loved this series and enjoyed this episode, my only criticism would be that the events moved a little fast and superficial compared to the other books, meaning a lot happened very quickly; shipwreck, tiger attack, overthrow bad guys & save a village, kidnapped by crime lord, befriend crime lord and become besties with his daughter, earthquake, tsunami, kidnapped by pirates, escape pirates, found by friends, destroy pirates on and on all the adventures of a lifetime in just a few days...
I never felt that way listening to the earlier books in the series
I still loved it
This series is always exciting! There is humor, drama, and suspense. The narrator, Katherine Kellgren, is superb!
A good narrator.
After listening to part 1 I had enough of K.Kellegren's shrill plastic cockney accent which diverted you from the story itself.
