This book started about a year after the conclusion of Terrier with Beka having some rather terrible luck with partners as a fully-fledged dog though considering she started out with the “cream of the crop” as trainers, I’m really not surprised that the others would fall short. This is why I enjoy letting books sit for a while before picking them up again; the story seems a little new when you can’t quite remember it.
Feb 22, S. I never particularly liked him—I thought he was sort of boring and I used to kind of breeze through his sections without thinking about it very much like I do with most other Obligatory Romantic Subplots in fiction—but reading along with the MR community really made me hate him more.
Tamora Pierce Fantasy In the meantime false coins have been leaking into the Tortallan moneystream and some of the senior guards and Beka have been investigating to find out where they come from.
Each book can stand on its own. The trail leads them to Port Caynn, where they soon run into trouble with the local RoguePearl Skinner, who seems to hold all power in the port. Works by Tamora Pierce. P I also was beyond shocked and pleased to see that there was LGBTQ representation in this book with characters that were treated as normal characters and not as token “look how inclusive we are” characters, like you often get.
October 25, Number of pages: I understand ‘honeylove’ but not ‘bardash’. The star rating reflects overall quality and learning potential. I read her series about Alana and her Realms of the Gods series multiple times when I was younger, and thought them the best books ever.
Her cast of supporting characters is lively, and her descriptions of the Port Caynn docks, gambling dens, and eating houses are alternately gritty and fun. And yes, she is a scent hound.
I missed Beka’s circle of friends at home in Corus as they were absent the majority of the time. With Tunstall on bed rest, Cooper and Goodwin are sent undercover to Port Caynn to try and bloodhhound where these fake coins are coming from – and who is sending them out into the mainstream. When Beka loses her latest partner and ends up back with Tunstall and Goodwin things are stirring up in Tortall.
Does that make any sense?
Blooehound fact, I longed to step in and help Beka throughout this book. Few small things that bugged me, but overall amazing. She’s an entire character of her own – which I just love! I love how she gets information from so many sources.
I enjoy a little romance in what I read, but I felt the sex was not needed and detrimental to the story. They are woven into the story in such a way that they are part of the tapestry for bloodhound book itself and the larger Tortallan history.
If you’ve read Pierce’s other novels, how does this compare to other stories set in Tortall? This series isn’t my favorite of Pierce’s, and I don’t like that Beka keeps getting these nicknames “Terrier”, “Bloodhound” from the common folk for her work on a single case. On the other hand, the text still sort of presents Beka as the odd one out and all third parties as being fully on the same page about what is in the body of knowledge that Beka has to acquire in order to pursue romantic relationships.

How do I know I haven’t? It’s told very well – everything you read is written through Beka’s journal and, despite the length of the book, the entire story covers just under three weeks. Beka Cooper was a bad end to a good trilogy.
So far it hasn’t been translated in other languages. This is a very interesting installment and not at all what I was expecting.
