All I can say for this book is that this is the most awesome book I ve ever read, and that I would give it a 7 star had it been possible, but alas it s not, so I ll have to be content with the 5 star which seems pitifully little now The book start of real fine, with Jacky going back to Boston, to all her dear friends, Amy, Annie, Slyvie, Rebecca, Peg, etc, etc, and they have a very happy and cheerful reunion Here s a quote Jesus, Mary and Joseph It s Jacky But of course, we mustn t forget about [...]
Read by Katherine Kellgren And she is an awesome narrator just sayin Had to give this Odyssey Award Honor Winner a chance and I m glad I did I m a huge fan of listening to audiobooks involving accents and I got an earful with this young adult title English, Irish, Cheapside, posh, and, of course, pirate Yay This is actually the 4th book in the Bloody Jack Adventure series Bloody Jack, The Curse of the Blue Tattoo, Under the Jolly Roger , but I didn t read the books after Bloody Jack In this book [...]
Another stellar contribution to the Bloody Jack series and a fabulous audiobook performance by Katherine Kellgren This is just pure entertainment Not that there isn t a good deal of history and thoughtfulness involved, but it s just one of the most compelling stories, with vivid characters brought to life not only through Meyer s deft storytelling but through Kellgren s fine acting If you want a synopsis of the story, you can read the publisher s blurb Personally, I loved diving right in without [...]
I know, I know Everyone is probably gasping with shock and there may have been a few heart attacks This is the first Bloody Jack book that hasn t gotten a five from me It simply the lacked the excitement and action that I enjoyed in the previous three It also lacked male characters which is a must for a Jacky adventure as she normally flirts with and outdoes all the fellows in all she does In this, the fourth installment of the Bloody Jack series, Jacky Faber has a price on her head and goes bac [...]
This was definitely the darkest of the four books I have read so far, but still well written I once again read it in a day I thought the author did an excellent job of bring out multiple female personalities, in diverse ways I thought the relationship between Jacky and Clarissa played out very interestingly, it makes me wonder how it will be in a subsequent one I loved the part when Jacky explained the goddess Diana to Katy 391 Elspeth Goodwin s character also played out very interesting by the [...]
I listened to In The Belly Of The Bloodhound by L.A Meyer because I might as well be obsessed with Jacky Faber Read my review here
2010 Odyssey HonorThis was the best Bloody Jack installment so far Quite adventurous and not at all annoying.
A bit long winded but still very enjoyable.
Absolutely fantastic and highly recommended The audiobook version of this series is very well done read by the most capable Katherine Kellegren who brings all the characters to life with her amazing voices.This installment of the series finds Jacky taking a stand on slavery It s the early 1800 s and Jacky is surprised when her arch nemesis Clarissa brings her slave girl Angelique to the Peabody Lawson School for girls The irony is that in a few short days, almost all of the girls from the school [...]
Though this book easily fits in with the others in the series, it s not for the faint of heart Listed by the publisher as 8th grade and up, I would highly recommend these books for older teens juniors seniors in high school at the very least Jacky s adventures in this book are highly mature young girls on a boat with pirates who want nothing than to sell them You can imagine the direction the story takes These young girls are in a fight for their very lives and there are moments when this is de [...]

Well, the author does it again He s able to make an strong novel in a series of books I started this book last spring and had to put it down because I am just tired of series After listening to the audio book of Bloody Jack, it helped me pick up the novel again and give it another shot Jacky gets out on the open sea again when she and 30 of her classmates are kidnapped and threatened to be sold as slaves in North Africa As their auction price depends on their purity and beauty, the girls receive [...]
I gave this book 4 stars, even though in some respects, the author hits several notes he has before But here s what I loved about this book in most of Jacky s adventures, she is the sole female that really shows spunk and it is constantly emphasized how different she is But in this one, the girls from the Lawson Peabody School are captured, and they all have to learn to let go of the roles that have held so closely, and to really become independent and strong willed and cunning I love that I lov [...]
The famous sailor pirate school girl Jacky Faber has found her way back to Boston after narrowly escaping during a great battle between the British and the French She knows there is a price on her head for being a pirate, although quite frankly she doesn t feel she is a pirate at all She must find a way to hide out for awhile, and what better place than back at the Lawson Peabody School for Girls Some are thrilled to have her back, others would prefer her to have stayed away, but Jacky is happy [...]
I have to say, Jacky s become something of a trollop It s like she s taken the phrase promised to another to mean that she can dally around, but will ultimately only commit to Jamie Quite the interpretation Anyhow, the series continues to be bursting with adventure and marvelous story telling, but as she ages, her experiences have certainly made her , uh, brazen In a way, she s common than ever I guess I should appreciate that the character is dynamic, right Interestingly, in this book she spen [...]
My new found love affair with this grossly under popular series continues to burn after reading this latest in L.A Meyer s Bloody Jack tales After barely escaping death and capture in the Battle of Trafalgar at the end of the last book, Jacky manages to steer a course for Boston and the relative safety of the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls With the whole British fleet on her tail for charges of piracy, Jacky must hide out and endure the quiet life of a lady in training, but this being an [...]
As much as I love this series, and as good as the book was in itself, I felt like this book served really no purpose in furthering the plot While the girls voyage illustrated the development of their relationships, it took up time that I would have rather seen devoted to the bigger issues of the story that I care about Jacky s inevitable run in with the people who are after her you knew it was coming, all the kidnapping did was forestall it a bit and her reunion with Jaimy I was also disappoint [...]
I am a fan.More rollicking adventures of the personable and spirited if slightly rascally heroine Jacky Faber Once again, I listened to the audio book, which makes the most of Jacky s colorful voice And I think one of the reasons first person narrative works so well in these books is that Jacky, by nature, is willing to try anything or go anywhere or talk to anyone so the means of gathering information comes naturally and is always believable within the context Of course, believability in her ad [...]
It s 5 am on the 28th of April, 2009 and AAAAGGGHHHHHHHHH The last sentence of In the Belly of the Bloodhound is a bloody cliffhanger I hate you L.A Meyer and please know that I mean that in the most loving way possible, because you are brilliant and gave Jacky to the world Would it be so bad to give Jacky and Jaimy, like, 2 seconds together Blarrgh I have to wait a few days until my hardcover of Mississippi Jack arrives And the audiobook is slated for release on May 1, and not available for pr [...]
4.5 starsEven though this book took over a hundred pages to get to the actual adventure part that s mentioned in the blurb, it was another great adventure with fantastic narration It was lovely to see the girls of the Lawson Peabody come together as a team, and particularly awesome to see Clarissa being painted in a three dimensional way it turns out she s a complete badass, while maintaining all of the parts of her personality introduced in the previous books I haven t mentioned in previous re [...]
12 13 08 Having just barely escaped the clutches of the British Navy, Jacky is headed back for Boston and the safety of America Much to her surprise she is welcomed back into the arms of Mistress Pimm and the Lawson Peabody School of Young Girls Under the guise of a scientific exploration, Jacky and the girls are abducted and forced into the hold of a slaving ship, there to travel to Africa to be sold as white slaves into harems The majority of this adventure is told while in the hold of the shi [...]
Another installment in the adventures of Mary Jacky Faber, expertly narrated by the inimitable Katherine Kellgren This is an audiobook series I always turn to when I need a REALLY GOOD listen Lots of adventure and mayhem as Jacky and the girls from the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls are abducted by slavers and have to figure out how to rescue themselves from the belly of The Bloodhound Super
when this series was recommended to me, they said to listen to the audio book, but i wasn t able to get them i finally got to listen to this one and it was so crazy good i just love this series they are exciting, full of adventure, and i am obsessed with Jacky Faber at one point while listening to this my heart was racing and i got so excited and nervous i had to pause it and calm down for a minute loved it for sure a book that should not be judged by its cover
evil author you can t just end a book like THAT my absolute favourite line from this is Right, Andy get in line behind Randall Trevelyne, Robin Raeburne, Ishmael Turner, Joseph Jared, and a few others, and not necessarily in that order And maybe Arthur MacBride, that Irish devil, too
Lots of racy parts would, again, make me hesitant to suggest this series to tweens It also could have been 100 pages shorter Other than that, loved it.
Current mood me, screaming, DON T BE LAST OFF THE BLOODY SHIP, YOU FOOL I thought this series couldn t get any better, I really did.
This is addictive, I just can t seem to get enough of Jacky Faber.
I listened to this audio book through our library s online app I was intrigued after reading that the author had been in the US Navy, and had used his knowledge when writing these books He went far above simply using his knowledge from the Navy, and obviously did a great deal of historical research while writing these books Between the author s careful research, excellent writing, the adventurous tales, his spunky heroine and the exceptional voice talents of narrator Katherine Kellgren, these st [...]
This might be the first one of the series that I genuinely enjoyed It was marred somewhat by irritation that the slave trade depicted here is quite literally whitewashed and also implies however unwittingly that all those slaves bound in ships would have been fine if they d just been as clever and resourceful as a classroom of white girls.But, otherwise, an immensely enjoyable audiobook I didn t mind the extensive storytelling within the main story, either.My Big Problem with the SeriesIT S WHOL [...]
As always with this series it was an enjoyable and heartfelt ride This time you not only get the high seas but slavers and the whole kit and caboodle It is hard to write a review without presenting spoilers so I will say it was such emotional book in which Jackie and her friends deal with many emotional trials and tribulations as they work together to survive this world It was a great book as all the books in the series and we also learn a lot about this era as she and her friends deal with the [...]
