Katherine Kellgren, I love you! K.K. has to be the greatest audio book narrator ever. Her accents are just right, the portrayals of the various characters are specific and memorable, and the sweet tones of her melodious voice charm the ear. After listening to quite a few of the books she has narrated, I'm ready to officially crown her Queen of the Audio Book.

So, about Bloody Jack. I loved it even though it was way, way darker and more mature than I anticipated.

This series gets more and more ludicrous as it goes on, but I CAN'T STOP. I liked this one more than the last one (the Mississippi one), even though Jacky continues to test the limits of what can be described as faithfulness to Jaimy.

I love this series! It just gets better and better.

I sometimes wish I could edit out the sexual violence parts so that I could recommend these books to younger readers. But it's (sadly) realistic that a girl like Jacky would face many threats to her maidenhood.
