Publisher's Summary

Two time-traveling special agents and a feisty young lady pirate captain join forces to prevent the course of history from being changed. Zane Kirby and Gus McAbee travel back from the future to the Bahamas of 1717, where pirates rule the waves and Spanish gold is the prize that attracts them. The two agents of the Federal Bureau of Temporal Regulation must find a renegade from their own day - Roger Turnbuckle - before the modern weapons he has smuggled back through time to the pirates of the past can upset the balance of power in the Caribbean and change history. This science-fiction adventure comedy adds a new twist to pirate lore, by the author of The Cross of St. Anne, Murder in Deer Park, and Mysteries at Midnight.

    Story
    "Short but Fun"
    Would you listen to Jolly Roger again? Why?

    It is fun short story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gus McAbee I thought it was great that he was turned into a parrot. It was great when the female bird started to flirt with him.


    What about Nicholas Patrella’s performance did you like?

    I liked his voice he had a good voice for the book.


    Who was the most memorable character of Jolly Roger and why?

    Zane and Gus when they were picked to time travel to save the time line. I thought it was sweet that he saved the female pirate from dying. I thought I knew than that Zane was going to have a cute romance with her after that.

    It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing.

    Story
    "A Cute Pirate Spin With a Talented Reader"

    I enjoyed this audiobook. It was fun and had it's share of cuteness. It was different which I liked as well. While it was a short story, I think the author could perhaps write more into this story with the characters. They were fun and I loved the parrot. I would definitely like to hear more from Gary Alan Ruse as I think he's an especially good author.

    Nicholas Patrella did a terrific job narrating this audiobook. He's amazing with his voice inflections. I was able to distinguish who was speaking the whole time because of his awesome vocal skills. Impressive.

    Overall, I think it comes down to whether you like pirate stories or pirate lore. This story is a work of fiction though. Great job.

    Story
    "Fun, silly adventure. Take it for what it is."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Sure. This is a short, fun, funny adventure. The narration is interesting, as well as the story. This isn't a deep, life changing title, but one purely meant for fun. I enjoyed it, but it isn't on the top of any of my lists.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Nicholas Patrella?

    Sure.

    Story
    "Entertaining"

    I received this book from Audiobook Blast (dot) com for my honest review.

    I listened to this book this morning getting ready for work. It was entertaining. I found myself laughing out loud in various parts of the story. I believe the concept of the story was interesting and not one I have really listened to or read before. I like the idea of Agents going back in time to prevent the Rogue Agent Roger Turnbuckle from altering the future by providing pirates with automatic weapons of the future. My favorite character was Gus McAbee as the parrot.

    Nicholas Patrella as the narrator was very entertaining. I believe he is what made this story vibrant and alive. I really enjoyed his voice and narration style.

    Thank you for the opportunity to listen!

    "Annoying on many levels"

    Story review......

    Lacks substance. Characters are shallow, unbelievable, with no depth to them. Would no recommend.

    Audio review........

    Narrator has the worst sounding voices for the characters. I had to force myself to finish listening to it.
