Publisher's Summary

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!
L. A. Meyer received a master of fine arts from Boston University, and is currently the curator and exhibitor at the Clair de Loon Gallery in Bar Harbor, Maine. He lives in Corea, Maine. Katherine Kellgren has recorded over 60 audiobooks including Bloody Jack, which won an Audie Award, a Publishers Weekly Listen Up Award, and ForeWord magazine's Audiobook of the Year.

I decided to write one review....

...for the entire series. Buy it Buy it Buy it!!!! Jacky Fabor is a character to end all characters. Pippi Longstocking, Anne of Green Gables and Huckleberry Finn all rolled into one. I must admit I was quite surprised to find the author was male. The entire series was swashbuckling fun from start to finish and pure joyful fanciful escapism. I hated to see the series come to an end.It is good to know there will be more and I can hardly wait. KUDO's to Katherine Kellgrin!! She is absolutely incredible what a talent!!! I truly believe her narration made for an incredible audio book. I am not surprised that two books from this series won 2010 Audie Awards.

Great series

Still love these books even after listening to eight. The Wake is one of the best in the series, never getting slow and keeping the action going.
