Have grown more than a little weary of the same basic story line repeated over and over.......and over......and over.....and......
Obviously LA Meyer has long ago run out of ideas. He attempts to mask this by making Jacky Hyper-sexual, Higgins gay and having her be in risk of death every few chapters.
The audio performance remains outstanding as usual.
I am a fiber artist and teacher. I love moderate action, plot twists, diverse characters and much romance.
They can't ALL be my favorite individually, but the series sure is!
Once again: I love the historical contexts. I am starting to get my early 19th century authors, wars and British Expansion history down!
Another smashing, consistent performance from Katherine Kellgren brings the unlikely, but oddly believable take of L.A. Meyers' Jacky to life.
Hey, it could happen.
I like them equally as much, but the book wouldn't be as great without the audio and not vice verse
Another perfect performance. She has to be the best at changing her voice to fit dialect , nationality, and sex. Well Done.
I so loved Ravi and all his Karmic fears. He starts out simply hoping to be reborn as a happy puppy, then soon realizes towards the end of the book that a beetle maybe all he can hope for, too cute
I am so over the Jamie and Jacky separation; I wish at this point he'd be written in to her life or completely out of the series.
I am in love with James Alexander Malcom Mackenze Frazer.
I debated on this series for several years, I am glad I got it and I am looking forward to the next book. Jackey is loveable and endearing
LA Meyers must loathe the woman he basedJackie on. That's the only scenario that works. Each book after Curse of the Bloodhound is worse. Jackie's strength dissolves, replaced by cravenness. Sad because the reader is AMAZING, & the series was as well
Maybe, it hurts to loste a character you loved
She is absolutely incredible
Good story line butchery of main character
Can't wait to see what happens to our girl, next...plan to go back and re-listen to all the books, when I finish the series, so far...
Jacky, since she is a good role model, in many ways for girls.
Fabulous...makes listening worthwhile...would not enjoy as much, reading the books, I think.
I love this series so much that I listen without my 10 and 13 year old boys sometimes which, is a good thing, as Jackie's 'romantic' interest this round is a courtesan turned female pirate. When my son asked me what Jackie meant when she talked about being 'petted a lot' I was thrown...The Asian angle is wonderful but as she grows up I like her less and less. It is still a great series but this is my least favorite.
After a few shaky outings is is nice to see this series get back on track. Some of the relationships are getting stale, but overall this was a lot of fun.
I waited for a long time for this book to be recorded. I am a big fan of the whole series, so I bought the book in print before listening to it. I was extremely disappointed by how thin and predictable the entire plotline and content were.
Katherine Kellgren remains one of the best character readers of all time. It is a shame the book reduces her effectiveness as a narrator.
The Mark of the Dragon is full of smoke and has no real fire coming out of its nostrels.LA Meyer is stuck in the doldrums along with Jackies ships....floating around looking for some wind to fill out his enthusiam for the plotlines.
