I have to admit I bought the second book in the series before the first book because there was a discount on it. I figured that at least I wouldn't waste a lot of money... (admit it, you have said that too)
Well, this was the surprise of the year for me. Katherine Kellgren really brought the characters to life, with not only different voices well-suited for the characters, but with energy and pacing that suited the text. AND she can sing a nice song!
This was my first contact with any L. A. Meyer novel. I was looking for an easy listen to help get through the four 12-hour drives that faced me in the last 2 months. I got my money's worth, and the Wife and I were sad to get to the end of the book. There is some violence, and the encounters with some of the "women of ill repute" are a bit creepy. Might be some good discussion opportunities with your daughters.
Personally, I'm looking for more books from both this author and this reader! Five stars for each!

Curse of the Blue Tattoo is the sequel to Bloody Jack, and I enjoyed it even more than the first one. Don't read on if you haven't listened to Bloody Jack! - after Jackie is kicked off the Dolphin, she winds up at a finishing school for young ladies and experiences more ups and downs than possibly imaginable throughout Curse of the Blue Tattoo! Everything is told in Jackie's emotive voice, and the narrator keeps up the great tradition of voicing a number of characters all with great depth.
This was a great follow-up and I recommend this series to anyone looking for a great listen.
