Jacky Faber’s written adventures come to an end when she’s accused of treason and flees down the New England coast.
I’m still so upset that the last book ended the way it did. I tried to put that behind me, as Jacky herself does, but I’m a world-class grudge-holder. I was mostly able to enjoy this book for itself but I’m still rating it 3 stars instead of the 4 I would probably have given it if that nonsense from book 11 hadn’t happened.
After twelve books, there’s not much more to say. Jacky is Jacky; may she always be true to herself. I’ve laughed and cried through her adventures, hated her enemies, and (mostly) loved her friends. She’s one-of-a-kind and I’m saddened to know that this was L. A. Meyer’s last book before he passed away.
I will note that there’s a scene near the end that might be upsetting to sensitive readers.
Katherine Kellgren’s narration was, as always, an absolute delight.
This nicely wraps up a lot of loose ends and revisits characters whom we haven’t heard from in a while. It’s a fitting end to a series that has brought me a lot of joy.
