Bloody Jack is back and this time, she’s facing a situation far worse than a ship full of murderous pirates. Curse of the Blue Tattoo, L. A. Meyer’s sequel to the enormously popular Bloody Jack: Being an Account of the Curious Adventures of Mary “Jacky” Faber, Ship’s Boy is just as bawdy and entertaining as the original.

Left in Boston by the HMS Dolphin crew when they discover her true sex, Jacky Faber finds herself navigating entirely new waters. It turns out that bloodthirsty buccaneers have nothing on the young ladies at the Lawson Peabody School! As Jacky observes, “They’re like any bunch of thirty or so cats thrown in a sack and shaken up good. They’re mean in ways that boys never even thought of being.” It isn’t long before Jacky shows her true colors by being arrested for “exposing a female part” (her knee) while jigging in the streets and is “busted down” to serving girl instead of student. Jacky soldiers on, getting herself into scrapes that her darling beau midshipman Jaimy Fletcher couldn’t even begin to imagine, including uncovering a shady minister’s evil secret and fixing a horse race with voodoo. And where in the world is seafaring Jaimy? As her letters to him continue to go unanswered, Jacky grows more and more worried. Still, at book’s end she takes an assignment as “lady’s companion” to the captain’s wife aboard a whaler headed for London. Astute readers will notice that the whaler’s crabby captain has a peg leg and won’t be surprised if in the next Bloody Jack Adventure, Jacky ends up hunting the great white whale!

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Not as good as the first. | 11/16/2016

    " This book fell flat for me. There were several subplots that were poorly resolved with just a sentence, which really bothered me. I felt like the book could have been half as long if they cut out the subplots that never went anywhere. For the most part, it did keep my interest and I'm curious to read the next one in the series. "

    " Loved it just as much (if not more) than the last book. Great stuff. "

    " A marvelous reader brings Jacky to life even if some of the scrapes she gets into are a tad unbelievable. "
