    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 piratesseafarers 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 uick wit If we were being realistic at least a few of those attempts would have ended up much grittier than what this book portrays Jacky also happens to always have a fine feast available to her no matter how many months she's been at sea I don't mind a romanticized version of pirate life it just isn't working for me in this series anyI also found this installment so boringly repetitive Jacky pursues ship Jacky attacks ship Jacky boards ship Jacky comes face to face with a surrendering Captain who is stunned by her gender Jacky has the cargo searched and up comes loads of insert alcoholic beverage Jacky repeats for four or five ships no detail withheld from the readerAdieu Bloody Jack you were fun

    As usual Jacky's story was entertaining exciting and breathtaking

  4. Angie Taylor Angie Taylor says:

    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 uick wits to keep her alive as she ship heads out to patrol the French coastUpon reading Under the Jolly Roger I realized once again that there are some things that LA 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 in British society during this time period the early 1800sThe biggest strength of the series lies in Meyer's ability to craft exceptional characters Jacky is a wonderful protagonist a fantastic storyteller with a bold sense of humor Although she's not against embracing some morally gray things when necessary she is deep down a very noble and heroic character She is also uite flawed as she is impulsive and often overreaches her boundaries which only serves to make her endearing Some of the side characters are just as memorable my favorites would have to be Mairead a strong willed young Irish woman and Higgins a proper British butler with the soul of a pirate The strength of these characters lessen the impact of things that would normally get on my nerves such as Jacky's near supernatural ability to attract potential suitorsI experienced Under the Jolly Roger as an audiobook which was a change from the first two books where I just read the print version This was a great choice The narrator Katherine Kellgren is an exceptional voice actor who gives impassioned performance As a bonus she also has a rather nice singing voice which comes in handy during Jacky's time as a performer As a result of this positive experience I plan on listening to the rest of this series on audiobook

    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 draftedUpon 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 is no end to the fun the laughs the hearstopping excitement I also noticed throughout reading this that Jacky is growing up She is discovering that she has a thing called feminine charm and is learning to use it on a few unsuspecting blokes adding to the overall fun content of the book I loved it

    Another excellent book by LA 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'm only frustrated that my library system only had one copy of the 4th book which is missing so I'll have to do an ILL to read the next book in the series

  8. Meredith Meredith says:

    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 I’m still reading and listening I’m thinking up all kinds of chores to be done while I listen but my husband is getting sick of my Cheapside accent I told ‘im to shut ‘is bloody trap I did I think he misses my devotion to Jane Austen

  9. Herman Herman says:

    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 intriguingThis 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 nightThis is one of the best YA books I've ever read Right up there with Cornelia Funke's Inkspell seriesBloody 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 StarbuckThe 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 dresses as a jockey at the local races and warms up one of the race horses The maid at Jaime's house sorry for her has told Jacky that Jaime will be at the races the next day As she is slowly cantering around the track she sees him and gallops the horse to him only to discover him holding hands with a very attractive young lady Impulsive Jacky turns her broken heart away from JaimeAs she is leaving the race track she is impressed along with several other men She is mistaken for a boy in her jockey clothes Many adventures follow as Jacky first helps the crew members of her new ship escape the tyranny of their insane captain Yes she is discovered as a girl early on but since she is Bloody Jack most of the crew is on her side She then turns them into privateers and begins taking prize ships for the English government She neglectfully forgets to turn in one of the ships they captured but receives a letter of marue from the Admiralty and starts off on her own privateering careerAnd that's not all but it's enough for now The plot races on at breakneck speed and readers will love it Included between several chapters are letters written to Jacky by Jaime showing that he does love her dearly and is continuing to look for her The girl he was with was his cousin who likes to pretend he is her beauStarting with the third book was not a handicap While not explaining in detail what happened in the first 2 we are given enough knowledge to understand most of Jacky's background to this pointIt's a lovely ride lovely written and truly fun to read I'm really glad I asked about the book on the way to San Juan Island
