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!

    "omg can't wait for my credits to post!!!!"

    So I finished this in less than a week. At first I didn't think I was going to like it, for some reason I didn't like the way it was heading after book 2. But again I was so into the whole story line within the first 2 chapters.
    But here I sit for another 17 more days before I can have more. I have now ran out of credits and don't want to listen to anything eles I have in my library and I have a few that I still need to listen too, I will have to make do.
    The narrater is so good. I feel it when she gets all crazy my heart rate goes up. I love how these are so full of passion and umf in the voice, and I just love these books. My husband thinks I am crazy I go around pretending to be proper lady; eyes hooded, chin up, teeth apart, lips together and of course with the accent to lol. He laughs at me, he is not even sure what I am doing but its all fun to me.

    "I'm enjoying the series but..."

    I wish Meyer would fix a couple of things:

    1. Editing. There were three places where I was rolling my eyes impatiently at the seemingly endless detail about how seamen are trained and how the rigging is hung and how the ship is managed. So very, very, very much detail that I found myself wanting to do the audio-book version of skimming.

    2. Screaming. Ms. Kellgren is very good but gosh how I hate the screaming. I'd be listening along, deep in some detail about foresails or Jackie's contemplation of something or other something and suddenly the narrator would be screaming in my poor, abused ears. I really didn't much appreciate it.

    But, having said that...
    Jackie Faber is a charming character. Her wit and courage and cleverness and girl-ness are extremely engaging. Everytime she'd go, "Wha...?" I could picture her incredulity or puzzlement and when she'd go, "Oh oh" I knew we were in trouble.

    The other characters are interesting or funny or brave or smart or stupid or vile or sweet or charming and all develop depth as the stories proceed. I have grown very fond of many of them (especially Higgins) and I look forward to getting to know Jamie a little better now that things are ... um ... as they are.

    As completely unbelievable as these tall tales are, I do enjoy them for sheer entertainment value. And if you ever have need to sail three-masted schooner, you'll feel like an expert.

    "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!

    "FANTASTIC!!!"

    Can I give the narration and the book a total of 15 stars instead of just 5 for each category - Overall, Performance and Story?

    Absolute perfection!

    "Jacky Rises to the Top!"

    There is lots of action in this book. Jacky goes from deep despair to triumph. The narrator does an amazing job with the many different accents, and she even sings. Katherine Kellgren is definitely one of my favorite narrators, and Jacky is one of my favorite characters.

    "The best book of the series!!!"

    Please note that I have listened to the entire series 3 times...and I am pretty sure this is my favorite of all of the books...although Lorelei Lee is a very close second...and the series is soooooooo good that I had to buy book 9 (cause I couldnt wait for it to come out in audio).

    This book (Jolly Roger) is sooooo brilliant...I love the mix of sailors, pirates, and werewolves (inside joke)...I stated in a previous review that I loved the characters around Jacky and this is the book where that REALLY starts...Joseph Jared and Higgens are just 2 of the characters that you will fall in love with...and want to follow their lives just as much as you want to follow Jacky's...

    I highly recommend this book and the entire series, and you will love the Wake of the Lorelei Lee (book 8) too...

    I hear voices. But maybe that's because there's always an Audible book in my ear.

    "Like a big bowl of ice cream."

    This series is just plain adorable. Katherine Kellgren's narration is worth a credit on its own. She's marvelous as Jacky. Like a big bowl of ice cream, it's a great treat. But, it's not a meal. I've listened to the first three and I'm done.

    As a break in the routine, I've thoroughly enjoyed listening - more because of Kellgren than the rather simplistic plot. But all the talk of mizzen masts and bowsprits makes me long for another listen to the whole Master and Commander series by Patrick O'Brian. With Patrick Tull giving voice to Stephen and Jack, it's a complete meal for sure.

    I live vicariously through the female leads in the stories I read. History, biographies, "cozy" mysteries are my faves. Can't put them down.

    "Such fun for almost any audience"

    There is no lag time in these adventures. Should be a classic. The most satisfying character to read about. The narrator is Jackie Faber. The perfect fit. Enjoy!
