Overview

The Wake of the Lorelei Lee: Being an Account of the Further Adventures of Jacky Faber, on Her Way to Botany Bay (Bloody Jack Adventure Series #8) by L. A. Meyer

Jacky Faber, rich from her exploits diving for Spanish gold, has purchased the Lorelei Lee to carry passengers across the Atlantic. Believing she has been absolved of past sins against the Crown, Jacky docks in London to take on her crew, but is instead arrested and sentenced to life in the newly formed penal colony in Australia.

To add insult to injury, the Lorelei Lee is confiscated to carry Jacky and more than 200 female convicts to populate New South Wales. Not one to give in to self pity, Jacky rallies her sisters to "better" their position—resulting in wild escapades, brushes with danger, and much hilarity. Will Jacky find herself a founding mother of New South Wales, Australia? Not if she has anything to do about it!

I have enjoyed this book as much as all the previous stories. The way that history is tied in with the adventure makes the tales seem all the more real.

I am writing this review in the hopes that this book lives up to expectations! I have loved the bloody jack series from the very beginning and i greatly look forward to reading the latest installment to the series. I hope it is not the last for it would let me down. This is my favorite series i have read each book at least 4 times and i am ready for this book to come out i would recommend this series to anyone who loves adventure, romance and comedy. Although i would begin at the beginning of the series if you have not already read them

I love the whole series and highly reccomend that everyones reads it. The plot is constantly twisting and turning that there is no point to put the book down. Meyer always keeps his readers wanting more, and this book is no exception.

Jacky is arrested and sent along with convicts in a ship none other than the Lorelei Lee, formerly owned by Jacky herself. Thankfully she has her dear friend Mr. Higgins and new found friends on board, and tries to make the best of her current predicament. Cool to see Jacky's friends make an appearance and unfortunately her enemies. For any reader who has either read the other books or not. Love this series. Can't wait for the next book!!!!
