As a rookie–known as a Puppy–she’s assigned to the realm’s toughest district: I can’t believe how bad the ‘villians’ in this story were. This book almost bored me to death. This district is the closest to the palace, but in no way is the best. She grew up in the Lower City and knows what makes it tick. Just what and who Pounce is becomes clearer in Terrier as things are alluded to.

She’s young, and the premise is that police are officially called Dogs, and trainees are officially called Puppies.

Rosto has two female friends who came with him from Scanra: Still, she continues to hunt for clues.

Terrier: Beka Cooper, Book 1

People have been disappearing, more than than normal. Cracking open one of her marvelous novels always feels like coming home. Overall a less than thrilling Tortall bka, which is not a sentence I’d ever thought I’d type.

Beka is best friends with Tansy, Crookshank’s granddaughter-in-law, which helps Beka gain extra information about what is going on in the household. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

I’m beginning to, finally, recognize patterns in Tamora Pierce’s heroines. The Dogs are a group of guards tasked with fighting crime in the city. Beka is a great kick-butt, female protangonist. I just discovered that apparently I have given some very popular books single-star ratings–except I haven’t.

This I just could not. I greatly admire that each time Pierce takes on a new saga in Tortall, she challenges herself to make a new strong heroine in a different position in society which even sometimes allows her to add tastes of different genres within a fantasy piece.
