Can the irrepressible Jacky Faber and her schoolmates put aside their differences and work together to avoid being sold on the auction block?

Synopsis:

Jacky Faber embarks on another rousing adventure to delight her ever-growing legion of fans. The irrepressible Jacky Faber, condemned for life to the English penal colony in Australia for crimes against the Crown, has once again wriggled out of the grasp of British authorities. Back on her flagship, the Lorelei Lee, she eagerly heads back to England in the company of friends and her beloved Jaimy Fletcher. But when the voyage is waylaid by pirates, storms, and her own impetuous nature, Jacky is cast into a world of danger that extends from the South China Sea to the equally treacherous waters of London politics. With the help of her loyal friends, Jacky meets her enemies head-on in this tale of love, courage, and redemption.

Wanted for piracy in England, Jacky flees to the States to avoid detection. She goes back to school at Miss Pimm's and reunites with her old schoolmates. But the Crown is offering 250 pounds for her head, and it's only a matter of time before the word makes it to Boston. Unfortunately, before Jacky can be claimed by the British, she and nearly all her well-bred classmates are captured aboard a slaving ship, prisoners destined to be sold in Northern Africa.
Still well done, but there is one chapter that involves the tired storyline of a dream sequence. Not okay, and the author should know better. I was thoroughly disgusted; when you read the book, skip the chapter that begins when they spot another ship on the horizon.

I have read all of the books in the Bloody Jack Adventures and have enjoyed them emensly, but In the Belly of the Bloodhound was the best of all!!!! The plot was a little more realistic this time, but what truly makes this book a fantasic read is the characters. Mary (Jacky) is a fasinating and lively character that will keep readers coming back to adventure with her again and again. I can not wait for the next installment!!!
