   schema:description "London 1759 and Jack's life is easy. A scholar at Westminster School, a master with cricket bat or billiard cue, the leader of a gang of bucks about eh town, he has both a girl he worships ... and an older courtesan teaching him the more basic arts of love. Yet he plans to give up all the carousing, sit the examinations for Cambridge and find a career in any field he chooses. All he has to do is stay out of trouble for one more night ... which is, of course, impossible. From the taverns and brothels of London to a clash of empires on the battlefield of Quebec, Jack's life is forever altered by the tragedies of that night. Tragedies brought about by a man he has hated since birth, his cousin, Craster. Through duels, battles, frantic escapes and a brutal winder, jack learns the truth of his father's words. A year on, the schoolboy will vanish, a man appear. But first he must learn to kill. To come of age, Jack Absolute must be blooded."@en ;
