Publisher's Summary

On the very day that Jacky Faber is to wed her true love, she is kidnapped by British Naval Intelligence and forced to embark on yet another daring mission--this time to search for sunken Spanish gold. But when Jacky is involved, things don't always go as planned. Jacky has survived battles on the high seas, the stifling propriety of a Boston finishing school, and even confinement in a dank French prison. But no adventure has quite matched her opportunistic street-urchin desires - until now!

Set sail again and again with Bloody Jack.

Jacky adds "Mermaid" to her resume'!

In this seventh book of the Bloody Jack series, listeners will not be disappointed. More crazy luck and unpredictable situations abound. Jacky's new "job" involves salvaging gold from a famous shipwreck, and Jacky is the only "member" of the British Royal Navy who will "volunteer" and can get the job done right . . . almost. Plus, you will find out who her pirate friends are, i.e. those who think of Jacky in a romantic way (men, I swear!), and her pirate enemies, i.e. those who wish her dead, and attempt to make it true. And, Jacky saves the day--again--[sigh] for the Royal Navy. Do they ever get tired of being shown up by a girl? Plus there's cock fighting! And, Jacky and Jaimy are closer than ever to being married, but wait--not so fast!
Did I mention Jacky is reasonably fluent in Spanish? Did I mention she expands her growing circle of admirers (and haters)? Did I mention the cock fighting?
The only reason I give this four stars for story and overall is because I am comparing it to the other books in the series, and a couple of the others are definitely my favorites. So, while this is not my favorite book in the series, it is still an excellent listen, and superbly read by Katherine Kellgren. If I could give TEN stars for performance, I would!
By the way, if you are already a fan of this series, check out the free Audible download of reader Katherine Kellgren interviewing author L.A. Meyer. Lots of insight and fascinating facts!

Marvelous Narration

I love Katherine Kellgren's accents of the different characters, especially the warm, caring accent of Jemima. Her narration of the humorous adventures of that larger than life character, Jacky Faber, is superb.

Excellent series

I originally got book one for my son, but pre-listened to it.

I don't think the series is appropriate for an 11 year old boy (in my opinion), but I LOVED it. I've listened to all seven now and can't wait for the next one. The narrator is phenomenal, and the stories and fun and lively.

I think this is a great series for girls ages 12 and up, and their moms too...

Mermaid from below.

Jacky is back and of course the crown stops her marriage at the last moment. Jackie and Jamie are cock blocked again. So, Jacky is now on a new adventure as a mermaid. I love the fun-loving Jackie and look forward to the next story. The only thing that I would tone down for the story is how much Jackie is a lush, she likes to kiss on the boys that is for sure. I love the fact that little Mary talks her into doing things she knows is dangerous, makes me laugh that little Mary is the devil on her shoulder. The best part is how Jacky is always so excited to see her friends and love ones. She may be hard on her friends, but they know she loves them. I look forward to the next adventure. The narrator is superb, she makes the story fast paced and lively.

Such a great story

As always a joy to listen to I can't wait to hear what happens next. I so enjoy the narrator. I don't know that Jacky will ever have a happy ending.

I just love Jacky

I just listened to the story for the 2nd or maybe third time. I had no idea there was an interview of LA Meijer at the end of the story. I just listened to it and I love it!
