"Fans of the series will eat this title up." --School Library Journal
“Meyer weaves details of 19th-century history, lore, and ballads into a fast-paced and often amusing swashbuckler. Fans of the Bloody Jack Adventure series will relish the latest escapades of this high-spirited and decidedly unconventional heroine.” —Booklist
“The author has done his homework, weaving many painless history lessons into the book. With its strong female character, fast pace, and fine writing, this will be a book difficult for the young adult reader to put down and one that will leave the reader craving the next title.” —Children's Literature
“Fans who have read the previous titles in the series will be treated to a fresh escapade and familiar characters but the story can stand alone for new readers. This will appeal to anyone who enjoys historical fiction, strong female heroines, adventure, and pirates.” —VOYA

This one bogged down a bit here and there trying to remind the reader of everything that happened in the past -- Jacky has had a lot of adventures, but all-in-all, it was another fun read as Jacky searched for sunken treasure. I enjoyed the new characters Jemimah and Joanie. I look forward to reading more about them in future books. I liked the Briar Rabbit stories told by Jemimah. It was like getting a story in a story.
Note: Cockfighting is a part of the story, so some might not enjoy reading about that.
I am constantly amazed at how Mr. Meyer can keep Jacky's adventures straight. I look forward to reading the next one!
