Publisher 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.

    " A light and interesting series. Good for a quick and enjoyable read. Each book can be read alone or as part of the series. "

    " This book does not disappoint. There were many times while reading the book that I would burst out with a snort of laughter or jump up and pump my arms in the air with happiness. The story is written in a way that doesn't give too many foreshadowing hints, which I was glad for because I like finding out the twists in the plot at the same time as Jacky. There was enough romance and action to keep me happy, and not too much description to muddle with the plot, which reflects on Jacky- she gets to the point. "

    " Number 6 in the Bloody Jack series did not disappoint! These audiobooks are so fun, the stories are great and the narrator is wonderful. Almost (not quite) makes me wish for a longer commute! "

    " love this story, although it was kind of far fetched in places, it really gave me a sense of what it was like to be in France under Napoleon. "

    " 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. "

    " I love this series... I just have to buy them. This was number six and it was just as witty and quick and delightful as all the rest. It is absolutely wonderful historical fiction set in the 1790s. I can't wait until the next addition comes out to see what Jacky is up to next. "

    " i think is one of the best of the series but if you have read the series you know that the whole James and Jacky not being together plot lines is getting kind of old "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5

    " Much better than Mississippi Jack, though still not my favorite of the series. I'm a little surprised that Jackie doesn't feel a smidgen of British loyalty and am starting to find it a bit unbelievable that she hasn't completely lost her virtue yet...particularly after this installment. "

    " an account of the further adventures of Jacky Faber, in love and war. Good tie in with a lot of past characters. Great historical tie in. Loved the Clodhoppers, Great! "

    " Oh, these books are such a guilty pleasure! Of course, I've started eye-rolling just a little more--Jacky always seems to attract hot young suitors wherever she goes...it almost gets boring after awhile. Almost. "

    " Jacky is back in military rig - this time she is a British spy sent into the depths of the French army. And yeah, she is still impetuous, brazen and irrepressible! "

    " It's the time of the French Revolution, and Jacky is being forced to be a spy to the british and some certain french. I liked this book because it describes what is happening with such detail that you can picture it in your mind. Awesome book! "

    " This book was good, not great because there were too many details about when she went to war being on the french side and I didn't really find that very interesting "

    " These books have consumed way too much of my time. That Jacky is getting naughtier! I've gone crazy waiting for her and Jaimy to finally reunite, and I can't wait for the next book. "
