    This book is my favorite the series It gives women a little less of a fragile sense and of a indestructable yet vulnerable headstrongness that I truly love Definately a favorite.

    It makes me sad that they don t write many pirate novels for adults This series is listed as YA, and the themes within are suitable for that category, but the main character is just so obnoxiously childish that I think I ve outgrown her The author does his research well in terms of nautical technicalities and such, but there is no way a crew of brutes would love and protect a young girl who acts like such a ditz, and accept her as their Captain Meyer makes things so black and white there are the few men who want to rape her, then the rest of the totally innocent pirates seafarers who just want to protect her forever and ever and give her all their fatherly love OF COURSE, clever little Jacky evades her assaulters every time with the help of her friends and quick wit If we were being realistic at least a few of those attempts would have ended up much grittier than what this ...

    As usual Jacky s story was entertaining, exciting, and breathtaking

    This is my favorite by far in the series There is tons of dramatic irony and tons of playful romance, which I love Also this is the one where the characters are mostly at sea and all of the adventure deals with pirateing It is a great read.

    When her time at the Lawson Peabody School for Young Girls ends poorly and with the city of Boston in flames , Jacky Faber decides to head back to London to reunite with her beloved Jaimy Fletcher But when she witnesses evidence that Jaimy has been unfaithful to her, she panics and runs straight into a press gang As Jacky is dressed in male garb, they mistake her for a boy and attempt to press her into service on a ship When Jacky reveals her true gender, she is horrified with the ship s captain refuses to let her go as he desires nothing than to see Jacky in his bed Jacky must depends on her nautical knowledge and quick wits to keep her alive, as she ship heads out to patrol the French coast.Upon reading Under the Jolly Roger I realized once again that there are some things that L.A Meyer does really, really well He knows how to craft a great adventure story Jacky s latest adventure on the high seas is exciting, suspenseful, and filled with great humorous moments that often had me laughing out loud The book s enjoyability is enhanced by the author s keen eye for historic detail Meyer does a great job of immersing the reader into the time period without making his book feel like a text book In Under the Jolly Roger, this can been seen in his portrayal of nautical life, as well as his glimpses into the different lives that young women lead i...

    Yet another fun, fabulous read about the fiesty heroine, Jacky Faber In this, the third installment of her adventures, Jacky has left behind a burning Boston literally and is now back to a life at sea First stop England Things don t work out very well for Jacky in England tho. She is kicked out of her beloved Jaimy s house and then sees him with another woman and well, rather than wait for any kind of explanation It is the hotheaded Jacky Faber we are talking about here she runs away Unfortunately, she is once again wearing male attire and normally I would cheer her for this but the Press Gangs are about and Jacky gets drafted.Upon discovering she is a girl underneath her clothes, the Royal Navy ship she is placed upon doesn t let her go as would be expected Why It s got a horny captain I m dead serious Now Jacky is dealing with a horny captain, anti woman sailmates, smugglers, mutiny, getting splinters in her arse, spies, and by the end of the book, she not only has her own ship but has also been branded a pirate with a price on her head Some new colorful characters appear in this one Higgins, Robin, Georgie, and my personal favorite, another fiery vixen that wants to be the next Gracelin O Malley as well, Maeread There ...

    Another excellent book by L.A Meyer Jacky manages to find her way back to England only to mistake a lady Jaimy is with as his girlfriend, when it is instead his cousin On the way back to her hotel, she is mistaken for a boy again and put onto a press gang and she ends on another of His Majesty s ships as a sailor She makes the best of it and eventually by a total freak accident ends up captain of the same ship and does some privateering in the name of the crown and gets her own ship I thought one of her best ideas yet was to make Liam, her sea dad from the first book, her captain in the 3rd book I like that there was another girl who wanted to go adventuring like Jacky, and that she finally met up with Jaimy and he s still in love with her and visa versa She s back to America for the next book and in another scrape as usual, which I m sure she ll figure out I ...

    Again a bit far fetched but I love the historical setting I m enjoying the fantastical fiction and I know what happens in 1805 and the Napoleonic war so the series remains my refuge during this smoky hot summer Tomorrow book 4 ...

    This series just gets better and better, and I didn t think it could get any better I think Under the Jolly Roger was the best of the three so far Look forward to book number four.

    Waiting for the ferry to San Juan Island, I wandered over to their small coffee kiosk While waiting for my order I asked the barista what he was reading I don t remember the exact title, but it had to do with a girl who became a pirate and his description was very intriguing.This weekend in San Diego s Maritime Museum, I found several books with a cover similar to the one he showed me And I did remember that he had mentioned something about Bloody Jack So I bought one of the books and started that night.This is one of the best YA books I ve ever read Right up there with Cornelia Funke s Inkspell series.Bloody Jack is actually Mary Jacky Faber In this book the third of the series, I found out I ve ordered 2, 4, 5, 6 and am getting ready to read 1 , Jacky has taken a whaler back to England, her home As she watches the captain walk down the street, his pegleg tapping on the cobbles, she says goodbye to Ishmael and Starbuck.The love interest takes second place to the action, but of course there is one Jacky goes to her true love s home, expecting to be able to leave a message or, possibly, actually see him if he is in between ships To her astonishment, Jaime s mother throws her out, proclaiming her unmentionable words, just because she is not a high class girl In a desparate attempt to see Jaime, she dress...
