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.

"Jacky Faber is a spy, romantic, adventurer, and tomboy who's also tough and tenderhearted. Narrator Katherine Kellgren captures each of Jacky's personas to perfection. As a spy, Jacky spends time in Spain, where she's a model in Goya's home and studio. Her education with the artist and angry encounters with the jealous Carmelita are priceless--and very funny. Kellgren deftly captures each character, accent, and emotion. Her pacing is nearly flawless. The frequent use of "um" becomes trademark Jacky and accurately captures her personality and thinking style. It's almost unimaginable to even consider not listening to this grand series on audio!
