Publisher's Summary

In My Bonny Light Horseman, the infamous pirate, riverboat seductress, master of disguise, and street-urchin-turned-sailor Jacky Faber has been captured by the French and beheaded in full view of her friends and crew. Inconceivable?

Yes! The truth is she's secretly forced to pose as an American dancer behind enemy lines in Paris, where she entices a French general into revealing military secrets - all to save her dear friends. Then, in intrepid Jack Faber style, she dons male clothing and worms her way into a post as a galloper with the French army, ultimately leading a team of men to fight alongside the great Napoleon.

In this sixth installment of the "Bloody Jack" series, love and war collide as the irrepressible Jacky Faber sets off on a daring adventure she vowed she'd never take!

Set sail again and again with Bloody Jack.

    "Stunning & Engaging"

    I don't think I've enjoyed a story or reader yet that is as engaging and "In the Momemt" as L.A. Meyer's Jack series read by Katherine Kellgren. Once again I feel like I am there, beside Jack the whole way, rather than reading what will surely become another account of her adventurers.

    "More Of The Same ..."

    If you've listened to the other "Bloody Jack" books, you've heard this one - more cosmic coincidences, more of our plucky heroine either talking, crying or cheating her way out of trouble. A more disturbing problem is that she shows more undesirable characteristics in each book. I quit on this one about halfway through. Sorry, Jackie - I just don't like you any more ...

    "Wonderful narrator - but creepy elements"

    I am in awe of the narrator. I feel like I'm treated to a very special performace--and she absolutely makes the book.

    Downside, I am an adult. I don't have kids, but I do wonder about the sanity of any author treating sexual violence, assault and rape in such a blase manner as this author does, especially in a book targeted for a young audience. Seems to be getting worse in each book. Be forewarned.

    Story
    "Our sailor now is on land"

    It takes some rather odd circumstances to get Jacky into close proximity with Napoleon himself. But the upshot is that the reader is forced to consider that war is not simple with good guys all on one side and glory as the reward.

    Several characters remark that our heroine has 9 lives, it's probably more like 20, I've lost track of the many times she is at the point of dying when. . . something happens and she is saved! Ah well, that's the genre after all.

    Kellgren continues to surpass all expectations. In this book, she has to indicate that Jacky is speaking French with an American accent, while continuing to narrate in her original Cockney. She also gets to do German and Russian accents for a change. Without her, I probably would never have picked up this series written for a younger audience and wouldn't have gone past one or two volumes. I only wish I had children the right age to appreciate these books.

    "A most remarkable narrator!"
    What made the experience of listening to My Bonny Light Horseman the most enjoyable?

    Katherine Kellgren's portrayal of the characters and her ability to infuse the story with such enthusiastic life. Very few narrators I have listened to perform to her level.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fantastical situations the lead character finds herself in and her realistic responses to them.


    What does Katherine Kellgren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I have a vivid imagination when I read a good book and often come close to forgetting I am just reading a story, but, listening to Katherine does makes me forget I am listening to a book being read.

    "Not quite as fun as the others but very enjoyable."

    Loved the performance as always though this one wasn't as fun. Maybe appropriate for the situations but not quite as enjoyable. Still good enough to get the next one with or without credits!

    "One of the best so far"

    If each book in this series has been a home run, then this one is a grand slam. Katherine Kellgren does an amazing job as usual, and the author tells an excellent tale in the journey of Jacky Faber.

    One of my favorite things about this series is that L.A. Meyer keeps the characters true to themselves. I'm never left thinking "Jacky wouldn't do that..."

    Would you consider the audio edition of My Bonny Light Horseman to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely the best way to enjoy these books are on audible with such a wonderful narrator!

    "In a great series One of the Best"
    What made the experience of listening to My Bonny Light Horseman the most enjoyable?

    Both thoroughly entertaining and equally moving. Dealt with the truth of war and the loss involved of those you love. Napoleon and being a 'dancer' in Paris. Delicious flirtation. Great fun.

    "Another Charming Romp from Bloody Jack"

    Love the series. It is written for young adults, and I am so far from being one, but the series continues to be utterly charming, with Katherine Kellgren embodying and personifying the impulsive, brave, lighthearted scamp, Jackie Favre. The author introduces little anachronisms for the delectation of a modern audience, such as Jackie's taking the sobriquet of "Jacqueline Bouvier" while in France and New Orleans.

    Always satisfying and funny!
