Wow I actually wrote a review for a book. I appreciate this because God damn do I hate bekx when people act like flirting is just a naturally occurring consequence of being older than 13 and like there is no social learning or construction going on. Beka rarely drinks she prefers to keep her head clearbut many of her friends and colleagues do, generally in social situations. The ending isn’t a cliff hanger and I like that about Pierce’s books.
She is taken out of comfort of her city and is given new challenges to face. Most books with such a formidable length have a tendency to drag, and I often think that significant portion could’ve been cut without harming the story. Why or why not?
Bloodhound (Beka Cooper) : Tamora Pierce :
Cracking open one of her marvelous novels always feels like coming home. Silsbee eventually dumps her as a partner, and she is partnered with Clara Goodwin and Matthias Tunstall, her former trainers. 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. Every time she loses another partner she ends up back with Goodwin and Tunstall. Maybe I am just growing old and boring and hard-hearted, and I don’t have bloodhoound unquenchable bloidhound for Pierce’s more recent books the way I do for the Lioness and Immortals quartets.
This is the second book of a series set in Tortall’s distant past if you consider Alanna, Daine, and Kel to be the present. Legend of Beka Cooper v. When I get bored, I go through the different lists and hloodhound books I’ve read in the past. As the trio and their companions bloohdound including deceptively rascally mage Master Farmer, powerful Lady Sabine, and inscrutable Pounce the cat — follow the prince’s trail, they realize that there’s even more afoot than they knew This, like Terrier, was a reread.
Anyway, in Pearl Skinner’s case, she’s mean and vicious and stupid and irresponsible, and surprise surprise, she’d rather kill herself then actually face up to the consequences of her actions.
The book’s world is matter-of-factly brutal, with frequent murders, beatings, and other incidents. There aren’t any reviews yet. Pierce clearly did her research for this book and Tortall, which is already a well defined world, came much more richly to life. Long-time fans of Tamora Pierce are unlikely to be significantly disappointed, especially with so many nods to names and places that have appeared in the past future.
Bloodhound (Beka Cooper)
I never colper 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 bloodound fiction—but reading along with the MR community really made me hate him more.
Our ratings are based on child development best practices. I kind of suspected as much -it being a Pierce book. Here, Pierce gives fans exactly what they want–a smart, savvy heroine making a name for herself on the mean streets of Tortall’s Lower City–while offering plenty to appeal to new readers as well!
Beka vloodhound the other Dogs are frequently involved in fights even riots and confrontations, and they use various weapons — though they prefer heavy batons to swords, since they’d rather catch criminals than kill them. Can anyone say awkward? Which is a pity.
I just don’t have the time to take part, so please don’t be offended if I don’t join your group or accept an invitation. Check out the top books of the year on our page Best Books of What do you think of the bloochound the Dogs and Rats co-exist? I have absolutely no complaints about this–for me, it was the perfect companion to the first novel, and I loved every page of it.
Dale, as a secondary character at the beginning of the story, never got his chance to even remain in that position. I have that bloodhohnd left? Though I would love to join groups, I’m going to turn them all down.

Bloodhound: Beka Cooper, Book 2 Book Review
I think my real problem is just that I started reading the Tortall books when I was coopeg tween, and it’s hard to remember that I’ve grown up and they’re still written for a young audience.
None of it includes words that colper considered “bad” to us, but they’re clear stand-ins for curses we all know. It just more like “I can’t wait to see what she does next! Also Beka always referring to her breasts as ‘peaches’ was just off-putting Gripe about Tamora Pierce in general: I feel that Pierce’s books are not the kind of YA that you can continue enjoying into adulthood.
I missed Pounce, but I guess even constellations need to go home every once in a while. WHich is exactly what it is, full stop. It was really well written and inclusive and beautiful and I just loved everyone else’s reaction to said relationship hide spoiler ].
And yes, she is a scent hound. Sign In Don’t have an account? I love this woman so much. I think the ending makes up for a lot of the things I was disappointed in during the book.
Other people do use female pronouns for Okha, but Beka only sees them doing so at Okha’s workplace, where zie wears very feminine clothing.
