Publisher's Summary

In the third book of the "Bloody Jack" series, unlikely heroine Jacky Faber, a pirate at heart, returns to the sea in a truly swashbuckling tale filled with good humour, wit, and courage.

After leaving the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls in Boston - under dire circumstances, of course - Jacky boards a whaling ship bound for London, where she hopes to find her beloved Jaimy.

But things don't go as planned, and she is off on a wild misadventure at sea. She thwarts the lecherous advances of a crazy captain, rallies the sailors to her side, and ultimately gains command of a ship in His Majesty's Royal Navy. But Jacky's adventures don't end there....

Soon she is being called a pirate, and there's a price on her head!

    "Simply marvelous - very entertaining!"

    As soon as we finish listening to one, we get the next. A great favorite at my house. The ***ONLY*** reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because at times when the action gets exciting, the narration gets a bit overwrought and a wee bit screechy for my taste, but it's rather a small flaw in otherwise top-notch narration. Hooray for Jacky Faber!

    "Fun and clever story"

    Totally clever, fun story. I would recommend reading the "Bloody Jack" series in order but it's not necessary.
    I am in the position to listen to many books and narrator Katherine Kellgren is the best of the best .

    "Couldn't stop listening!"

    Katherine, of course, is amazing to listen to! I thought the last book dragged a bit and questioned whether or not to get this one and I am so glad I did! Very exciting!!! I could barely stop listening!!!!

    "Not just for kids"

    This is a great action adventure series. The characters are creative. The narrator is excellent. It's fun. It's imaginative. Great entertainment from the very first book to the very last book of the series.

    "As good or better than the others in series"

    First, a very excellent performance! Second, an exciting story and you can't help but love Jackie as much as those in the stories love her. This one is definitely a page turner, couldn't quit listening.

    "Loved it!!!"

    Great book to listen to on audio. Must listen to the previous stories. It is also good for long car rides and a fun story to listen to with pre teen and teenagers.

    "I LOVE Bloody Jack!"

    This is an amazing series! The stories are fa fetched and crazy and of course the heroine always gets out of trouble. But I like to quote her famous words to myself..."Why can't I be Good? She is Rebellious and Raucous, wild, fearless, and just plain Bloody Jack! You will fall in love I promise." But you must start at the beginning so choose the first in the series and work your way down because much of the series is based on true historical lore.

    Story
    "Great to be back at sea with Jacky!"

    As throughout the series, the narration makes this book, Kellgren is again fantastic! I was happy to be back at sea, as the 2nd book was mainly about the girls' school and therefore restricted in scope. I fell in love with sailing life through Patrick O'Brian's series on audio, and it's great to have a female version.

    This book has a lot in it, it maybe could have been 2 books as there are a couple of distinct parts. After while some of the action seemed repetitive but the narration always made up for it. I'll be moving on to the next volume!

    "Couldn't Take Out My Ear Buds!"

    I loved this book! I had my ear buds in constantly until I finished it. Jacky is back at sea where she belongs. The story moved quickly from one adventure to the next. I sometimes worried that the end was coming for Jacky, and had to remind myself that there are more books in the series. Even knowing she would come out in the end, I had to keep listening to hear what happened next.
    Although I am well past my teen years, as are my children, I am loving this series!

    "Great tale, great narrator."

    I continue to love this series and narrator. I recommend it for all adults and young adults (and children whose parents don't mind some allusions to sexual situations that will mostly go over their heads, and are never on stage or involving the main character).
