This book isn't amazing, but this series is really good. The first book can be slightly boring at times. When you get past that you really get into her adventure. If you don't love this book, you are sure to love one of the others.
My favorite so far is the third one. If you can hold out until then, you are in for a treat. It only gets better.
Though the book had a good storyline, Jacky's confusing style of naration takes a long time to get used to (I had to read chapter 1 twice before I understood what she was even talking about). There was far more sexual content then I expected, including a pedefile which brought about several extremely disturbing and pretty graphic scenes. The stuff with the French pirate felt rather jumbled into the storyline, and the whole episode of Jacky flying away on the kite was ridiculous. On the up side, the historical content and details of life at sea seemed pretty accurate (this is a personal point of interest) and some of the dialogue was entertaining. But, in the end, I wish I hadn't wasted my money.
