"e;C.C. Humphreys takes you into a swashbuckling world you won't want to leave."e;-Kate Mosse, author of Labyrinth Before he can become a man, he must first learn to kill… London: 1759: Life is easy for Jack Absolute, a young raconteur loved by the ladies and envied by his schoolmates. With a place secured at university and a baronetcy at hand, his future seems bright-if he can just stay out of trouble. But when Jack is caught read-handed with a powerful lord's mistress, his good fortune is destroyed, forcing him to seek a new fate in the dangerous New World during the brutal Frecn and Indian Wars. There, marooned amid hostile Indians and fierce colonial rivalries, the bawdy schoolboy disappears and a man emerges. Jack's survival depends on winning the friendship and help of the natives, but those come at a high price. In order to become the man they could eventually trust, Jack Absolute must first be blooded. And in order to be blooded, he must do the unfathomable. He must learn to kill. The gripping prequel in C.C. Humphrey's riveting historical series, The Blooding of Jack Absolute sweeps readers into the ruthless wilds of North America and tracks the stunning transformation of a young dreamer into a daring, larger-than-life hero. "e;Humphrey's popular Jack Absolute series…features Jack in all his swashbuckling glory…Humphrey's acting background brings drama to life in Jack's legendary tale."e;-Booklist "e;Humphreys has created a rambunctious but lovable hero who continue[s] to win fans with each new adventure."e;-Publishers Weekly "e;Suave, sexy, and superhuman, Jack could be an eighteenth-century prototype for James Bond…Much derring-do, told with panache."e;-Kirkus
