I'm Sick of Jaya Jones

I'm sick of Jaya's simplistic way of looking at the world and the people around her. She takes everything and everyone at face value and is then shocked when she realizes that others have ulterior motives. The story was summarized over and over in almost every chapter and the characters are completely unrealistic. The story of Jaya's pirate uncle was more interesting than the story itself. I will not buy the next book in the series.

Fun listen!

Great story, interesting mystery, tons of fun history to boot. I enjoyed Pirate Vishnu very much The story moves along at a good pace, with no boring bits in between. The characters were engaging and entertaining.. It had the right amount of fun, suspense and intrigue. Jaya Jones is a very capable heroine. I am really enjoying this series.

If there is one drawback, it is that the narrator used the same Scottish accent used in Artifact (the first book) for the Irish character. If someone can't do accents well, it's best to avoid them. I kept getting confused as to why the Irish character was speaking with a Scottish accent.
