Description: The vivacious Jacky Faber returns in the tenth tale in L. A. Meyer's Bloody Jack Adventures, a rip-roaring young-adult series applauded for its alluring combination of adventure, romance, history, and humor. Once again under the thumb of British Intelligence, Jacky is sent to Spain to spy for the Crown during the early days of the nineteenth-century Peninsular War. She finds herself in the company of guerrilla freedom fighters, poses for the famous artist Goya, runs with the bulls, is kidnapped by the Spanish Inquisition, and travels with a caravan of gypsies- all while hoping to one day reunite with her beloved Jaimy Fletcher.

Thoughts: Another subpar Jacky Faber. Jacky should just stay at sea- her adventures on land tend to bore me. This one wasn't as terrible as My Bonny Light Horseman, but almost nothing seemed to actually happen except for some wandering around, bumping into a couple of notable characters, and... magic mushrooms.

Soooo excited that Jacky is headed back to Boston in Boston Jacky! I love the Boston characters and I'm even looking forward to her reunion with Jaimy.

Jacky's adventures in Spain. Not my absolute favorite but still interesting enough. She's hiding from the inquisition in an artist's studios and like always, her bold and dramatic flair catches the eyes of many young men but also earns the burning jealousy of her female acquaintances. ( )

I like this series a lot, even as it gets less likely. And you've got to appreciate someone who insinuates herself into Goya's household. ( )

Mighty old hat by now, but still entertaining. ( )

I'm tired of Jacky and Jaimy (oh, how I hate writing that name that way!) I wish she was not interested in love with him, but instead her flirty self with no thought of commitment to a single person. In general though, her story is wearing thin, and I would hope that it is wrapping up soon. ( )
