    In the third book of the "Bloody Jack" series, unlikely heroine Jacky Faber, a pirate at heart, returns to the sea in a truly swashbuckling tale filled with good humour, wit, and courage. After leaving the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston--under dire circumstances, of course - Jacky boards a whaling ship bound for London, where she hopes to find her beloved Jaimy. But things don't go as planned, and she is off on a wild misadventure at sea.

    Eileen says: "Best book in the series (so far!)"
    "Excellent Narration and a great story"
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed this audio book, although despite my rating of 5 stars it could have been a little better. The beginning is a little slow and there are a couple coincidences which seemed a little far fetched. The part which takes place aboard the Wolverene ( the major part of the book) is absolutely fantastic. This and the excellent climax at the end make this a 5 star book. I had some concerns about the parts aboard the Emerald, where the book seemed to take a turn. It didn't make much sense that nobody fires back, for that would have caused a real moral problem, wouldn't it? The low point is when Jackie gets a politically correct sermon about racial slurs. While I agree wholeheartedly that racial slurs are bad, it was out of place and if the author wanted to make this point it should have been done through plot and not a speech.
    That said, I will give this book 5 stars because the complaints are really quite minor and I enjoyed this as much or more than any book I have every listened to.
    I recommend this book for any age but I caution that if this book were a movie there is a disturbing and important scene which would push the boundaries of a PG13 rating.
