    A great addition to Jacky's tale

    The previous book in this series really slowed down and lost the charm of the original for me, but this one picks it right back up again! It took a bit to get to the capture part, but for me, when the story got slow it didn't take long to once again be hard to put down. Gotta love those Lawson ladies!

    more from this reviewer

    Another can't put down Jacky novel!

    Meyer continues the incredible adventures of Jacky Farber with yet more excellent historical background and great realism. Each of these novels is just a bit different and raises historical and societal issues of the place and time. This novel centers on the issues of slavery and that becomes all too real as these young women of the Lawson Peabody School are captured and sent to be slaves in hareems across the ocean. Meyer develops strong but different women characters in this novel who do effect their escape. Highly recommended.

    I Also Recommend:

    We are shoved roughly down the hatch, through a barred door, and into the very belly of the Bloodhound, down into the very pit of hell itself.

    We have Jacky lying low back at the Lawson Peabody School For Young Girls after finding out that she's wanted for Piracy. What starts out as a field trip turns into a kidnapping. Jacky must use her knowledge to help calm the other girls as they all headed to be sold while aboard a ship called the Bloodhound. As the days go by Jacky and the girls try to plan to escape while keeping themselves busy with exploring the ship by splitting up into three groups led by Clarissa, Dolley and Jacky who meets someone from her days back when she was "Little Mary." It seems that with each book the series gets even better. The ending left me thinking, you've got to be kidding me. So read the book for yourselves to know more if and only if you've read the other ones before this. Well onto the book 5 then.
