Bloody Jack by L.A. Meyer
“It’s easier bein’ a boy, ‘cause when someone needs somethin’ done like holdin’ a horse, they’ll always pick a boy ‘cause they think the dumbest boy will be better at it than the brightest girl, which is stupid, but there you are.”
This thing is crazy good.
The first one, I despise reading out of order and avoid it when I can.
Character development is so much better if you read in order.
When I was 12 my sister started something that would prove to become somewhat of a routine between us-
she practically forced me to read a book.
I mean she. would. not. let. up. I was already an unhappy kid at this point and having my older sister constantly bugging me was annoying as hell. Eventually after a month (& while faced with a 5 hour car ride) I relented and agreed to read the book.
~ and a love affair began ~
I within the next week I had read up to In the Belly of the Bloodhound, that being all that was out at the time. I didn’t just read them, I read and reread until I could recite all of my favorite parts by heart, could answer any question someone might ask, to this day I have the first passage of the the prologue memorized.
and after that I waited those agonizing months for the next book to come out, and the next, and the next. I checked the website constantly, which we all know is a major disappointment 99% of the time, just hoping that maybe this time will be it, damn near praying for an update. I scoured the Bloody Jack Boards for new info and read until my books fell to pieces (literally my first copy of UtJR is in like 4 pieces, I’ve since bought a new one.)
You know- I’ve gotten way off topic, I’ll stop here. But here’s a little ship for getting this far.
