    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 Meye

    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.

    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.

    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.
