    Jacky Faber, Bloody Jack, is back, and this time, she's facing a situation far worse than a ship full of murderous pirates. Curse of the Blue Tattoo, L. A. Meyer's sequel to the enormous popular Bloody Jack, is just as bawdy and entertaining as the original.

    William says: "Nice story, extremely well read!"
    "Flawless"
    Overall

    L.A. Meyer has created an immensely compelling book about a terrific heroine who one can't help but love despite (or maybe because of) her flaws and mishaps. Jacky Faber and her cohorts may find her misadventures harrowing, but it's tons of fun for the listeners to vicariously experience. The book is also educational as Meyer tries to keep the setting of the book as historically accurate as possible.

    As previously mentioned by other listeners, this book may be a bit explicit for the young'uns, but it's definitely no worse than whatever one might find on the telly these days.

    The true gem of this audiobook, however, is Ms Kellgren. She doesn't read; she performs. The different accents she affects are great, and her singing voice is beautiful. If she's narrating, then I'm listening!

    Aidan, the Wolf of Awe, has abandoned the Brotherhood and forsaken his vows. Feared by all and trusted by none, he hunts alone, seeking vengeance against the evil that destroyed his son. He has not saved an Innocent in 66 years - until he hears Brianna Rose's scream of terror across centuries, and leaps to modern-day Manhattan to rescue her....

    Robin says: "Fuhgedda boud it"
    "Wretched heroine"
    Overall

    Brianna is an introverted empath with baggy clothes and a pair of hideous spectacles. It's the perfect recipe for the perfect underdog heroine, right?

    Absolutely wrong. She was annoying, whiny, and unapologetically clingy under the pretense of love. There were too many times when I'd hoped Aidan would stuff a hankie into her mouth and be done with it.

    In Mississippi Jack, the fifth installment in the Bloody Jack series, the intrepid Jacky Faber, having once again eluded British authorities, heads west, hoping that no one will recognize her in the wilds of America. There she tricks the tall-tale hero Mike Fink out of his flatboat, equips it as a floating casino-showboat, and heads south to New Orleans, battling murderous bandits, British soldiers, and other scoundrels along the way.

    Tee Bellflower says: "Kellgren does it again!"
    "Great fun"
    Overall

    It was tons of fun to view the American frontier through the eyes of Jacky Faber, the Lily of the West.

    I especially loved listening to Katherine Kellgren's rendition of the American folk songs, especially those done in the voice of Mike Fink.
