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. ( )

As usual, the audio was spectacular. The reader - Katherine Kellgren does a great job bringing the characters and music to life. Jackie is sent to Portugal and then ends up in Madrid, spying for the English. She ends up with the painter Goya and later we meet some gypsies. Always a pleasure to visit Bloody Jack. ( )

audiobook - Jacky has just shipped the mentally unstable Jaimy off to her friends in Rangoon for some R&R when she is, of course, picked up by Naval Intelligence. They again tell her she will be pardoned of her crimes against the crown if she spies for them, this time in Spain and Portugal during the Peninsular War. Through a typically bizarre chain of events, Jacky ends up as a servant and nude model to the great painter Francisco Goya and his painting school. (She is, obviously, the model for The Nude Maja.) She has fun for awhile, and then gets involved with the Spanish revolutionaries.

Pretty typical of the later Jacky Faber books. There's not really a concrete plot, but Jacky has tons of adventures involving "special" mushrooms, the running of the bulls, gypsies, etc. I was not at all familiar with this era in Spanish history or with Goya, and so I liked learning about those a lot. Can't wait for the next book to come out in a few days! ( )

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 guerilla 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.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:29:06 -0400)

Still yearning to be reunited with her beloved Jaimy, Jacky Faber continues to collect intelligence for the Crown as she leads guerrilla attacks against Napoleon's forces, poses for the artist Francisco Goya, is kidnapped by the Spanish Inquisition, and travels with a gypsy caravan.… (more)
