Another wonderful book in the Bloody Jack series. I really really want to keep reading the series, but my library doesn't have any more after this one. I might have to break down and just buy them on my nook this summer if the library doesn't get them in by then. ( )

More over-the-top adventures of Jacky Faber. She is thrown into the thick of one of Napoleon's campaigns by way of the British Intelligence. Usually I don't mind the anachronistic flow of narrative, but did she say "suck it up"? - Hmmmph. Also I was a little creeped out when one character lingered on the description of her tiny waist, enhanced by the fact that she'd had some ribs broken in the past. Sorry to complain - I did enjoy it quite a lot, though it was not one of my favorite Jacky stories. ( )

Another fun adventure in the Jacky Faber series. Jacky is over the top, but that's what makes her fun. This one required more stretches of the imagination, but I enjoyed reading how she managed to get herself entangled in the Napoleonic War. I'm looking forward to the next episode. ( )

Jacky Faber, aka "Bloody Jack," is captured again and on her way back to England to face possible hanging for her crimes. But, of course, she ends up elsewhere - this time in France, and pressed into service as a spy.

Probably my favorite so far of the series. There's plenty of tension and action - and the scene at the guillotine was frighteningly hard to listen to - but of course her charm endears nearly everyone to her, even Napoleon... and even when they think she's a boy. ( )

Description: The infamous pirate, riverboat seductress, master of disguise, and street-urchin-turned-sailor Jacky Faber has been captured by the French and beheaded in full view of her friends and crew. Inconceivable? Yes! The truth is she's secretly forced to pose as an American dancer behind enemy lines in Paris, where she entices a French general into revealing military secrets all to save her dear friends. Then, in intrepid Jacky Faber style, she dons male clothing and worms her way into a post as galloper with the French army, ultimately leading a team of men to fight alongside the great Napoleon. In this sixth installment of the Bloody Jack Adventures series, love and war collide as the irrepressible Jacky Faber sets off on a daring adventure she vowed she d never take.

Thoughts: Well, this one just really didn't do it for me that much. It seemed the most unfocused and convenient so far. Also, it wasn't very exciting. I appreciate Jacky's opinions on powerful men and that she sees them for more than what they are on the surface, for good or bad, but the rest just didn't make much of an impression.

Sure hope this series picks back up.
