We're pretty far into the adventures of Jacky Faber by this point. Sometimes the dialog is a bit lazy and sometimes I am a little creeped out by how the writer - an older man - seems fixated on how cute her bottom is. Luckily, her adventures are still a lot of fun. This time she gets to spend more time with her sweetie and ends up in the Caribbean, diving for treasure. Good times. ( )

I freakin' love Jacky Faber. Seriously i have been reading these books for as long as i can remember.
Rapture of the Deep is the 7th book in the series (7th!? can you believe that!? i can't!!) this one following Jacky after she was kidnapped by the British intelligance office on the very day she was to (finally) wed Officer James Fletcher (awwww i love Jaimy :]) To settle her debt with the king of England (for pirating in previous books) she's recruited to dive for Spanish gold off the coast of America.
This is probably the first Bloody Jack book i've ever read that didn't end in a way most horrible. lol. I'm not even kidding. This one just starts kinda bad.
Fortunately though, for those romantics that were nearing their wits end, Jacky and Jaimy are finally together in this book! Not married... not yet... but still! It's better than nothing!
One thing i love about these books are the colourful cast of characters that has grown to epic proportions during these seven books. I mean, there are so many characters now that i can't even remember some of them.
Lots of familiar faces return thought, including the Spanish pirate Jimez (i know for a fact that is spelled wrong.. but i can't find the book to fix it...) whom i love, because he's awesome. lol
Other familiar faces are the Brotherhood, reunited at last (well, except for poor dear departed Benjy)
This book brings the usual Jacky Faber cheeky humour and misadventures that we've all come to love. From buying and then freeing a slave, to rescuing a bantam rooster and entering it in cock fights. I can't say that this was my favourite (Bloody Jack, Under the Jolly Roger, and My Bonny-Light Horseman are my favourites.) But it was definitely an excellent edition.
I'm really looking forward to the next installment which is apparently titled "Wake of the Lorelei Lee - Being the account of the adventures of Jacky Faber on her way to Botany Bay
How totally awesome!!! ( )

Description: 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.

Thoughts: While still not as satisfying as the earlier books, this 7th installment was delightful and SO MUCH better than the last one. As foggi said above, Jacky is back at sea and that makes for a much better adventure.

Being a licensed scuba diver myself, the addition of deep water diving in a diving bell in the early 1800s was great. Even with my modern equipment, I've never dove further than 60 feet, being mostly a shallow reef diver, so I can imagine the terror and thrill of going down 200 feet in a bell and then free-diving on a wrecked ship!

It was also nice that Jacky and Jaimy finally got to spend actual time together as near grown-ups rather than just as children. I still don't know if I am certain he is who she should end up with, but I'm less bothered by it now. Lord Richard Allen is certainly a charming and exciting man! ;) Oh to be Jacky and have dashing men falling in love with you everywhere you go...

3.5 stars. This was better than the last. I really enjoyed the historical aspects of how technology and science was changing and the new ways they found to explore. While I'm not sure they were 100% accurate, they still have the general ideas right. A fun continuation. ( )

Again for my dear Annetje.

And for Chris and Tuck and memories of Florida and the Keys.

For Betsey, too, as well as for Chelsea and Chelly, both noble Cockers, who lay by my feet all of these years and by their loving presence helped me pound out these words.
