I know very few people who love the Bloody Jack series as much as I do, so I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that Chelsea at the Page Flipper has devoted a whole week of posts to Jacky and her mad adventures (this doesn't have anything to do with books, but if you're a Buffy fan, the week before Bloody Jack week was Buffy week!). She covers the awesomeness of pirates, why Clarissa Worthington Howe isn't all that bad, the time period, and the general wonderfulness of the series.
It's hard for me to pinpoint one favourite thing about the series. Jacky has wild adventures like nobody's business, making the books so much fun to read. She's not even limited by location - she buckles serious swash whether by land or by sea. So much swashbuckling could get very unrealistic and unbelievable in the hands of a lesser author, but L.A. Meyer makes it work well with capable writing and lots of humour.
If you haven't read the Bloody Jack books, you should. If you have read them, what's your favourite thing about the series?Categories: buzz, Fun
