    Life as a ship's boy aboard HMS Dolphin is a dream come true for Jacky Faber. Gone are the days of scavenging for food and fighting for survival on the streets of 18th-century London. Instead, Jacky is becoming a skilled and respected sailor as the crew pursues pirates on the high seas. There's only one problem: Jacky is a girl. And she will have to use every bit of her spirit, wit, and courage to keep the crew from discovering her secret.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Bloody Jack to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I almost never like audio better, and all I hope for is as good. This narrator was perfect. I wish I could give her more than five stars.


    What other book might you compare Bloody Jack to and why?

    I think from now on this will be my standard to compare other coming of age adventure novels to. I can't say enough good things.


    Which character – as performed by Katherine Kellgren – was your favorite?

    Jack of course, but she did all of the characters well.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me laugh and cry many times, sometimes at the same time.

    The world was desperate. Since the empire had fallen a hundred years ago, Gwin and her people had nearly given up hope that the Renewer would come. Gwin had lost everything. Her husband was killed in one of the wars. Her children died of Star Sickness. Even her work at the hostel was in jeopardy because the politicians had it out for her. The cursed Gwin, therefore, had nothing to lose. When she took in the girl, a survivor of the Star Sickness, it was a dreadful crime.

    Ulrika says: "Very good, but not one of Duncan's best"
    "worst 2nd half of any book"

    What disappointed you about The Cursed?

    Author ignored, killed or twisted every developed character until I cursed the impulse that caused me to buy this. By the end I didn't even care what happened next to anyone. Worst Duncan book ever. How could an author take such a good start and so completely destroy it.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment
