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!

Since I've stumbled upon this series, I haven't been able to put it down. I listen to it every chance I get. The story is so well-written and Jacky is lovely in all her crazy and misguided ways. Katherine Kellgren's performance is stellar. She brings every character to life in grand displays of various voices and accents. It's so clear she's having fun. She's one of my favorite narrators of all times. I can't wait to see what else Jacky is gonna get herself into.

This was my favorite story in the series so far. I do like the sea faring stories bray it seems.
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.
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.
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.
Have no idea since I have not read the book but will say the interpretation by the reader and voice inflection adds to the experience.
I listen to books all the time, When I am driving, cleaning, cooking or doing anything quiet. I am AUDOBSESSED!
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.
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!
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).
I have thoroughly enjoyed the writing and though the plot is a bit dickenisk (characters return in most fortuitous situations) it is very enjoyable
