As someone who started in this universe hy the beginning AlannaI was wondering how the women Knights fell out. Dec 12, James Beech rated it liked it. Pierce did the character in question a huge disservice, and I was left feeling rather hollow and disbelieving. YMMV as to whether the ending is believable or not–I wasn’t bothered by it, but I can see how some would be. To me this felt like set-up for a big, surprising conspiracy, maybe Beka’s own Moriarty. You know, the more I think about this book, the less I like it.

Also, don’t be alarmed by the number of books I’ve read.


I still greatly enjoyed the story and the writing, but the intimate relationship between Beka and Dale soured some of my taste for the book. I’m pretty sure people thought the romance that Beka has in the story was done well, but it actually bothered me. Works by Tamora Pierce. I just wish she didn’t have to stumble and fall sometimes. Bloodhoumd also a traitor along with her father. Though I would love to join tamoora Hey, folks!

I love Dale Rowan, the charming flirt, the gambler, the man who is not perfect in any way but it is good enough tamoraa Beka. I loved the plot of this book, which takes Beka and her partner Tunstall on a search for the kidnapped prince of the realm.


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. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. A Hero’s Compulsion” co-written with Tim, and a short story anthology co-editing credit. Unnecessary too, I don’t need an explanation for why George didn’t work out Faithful was Pounce; I didn’t even remember that he’s in the Alanna books.

Bloodhound – Tamora Pierce

One, the characterization felt unnatural. Zie does help with the plot as it is, but in a slightly Magical Negro kind of way.

The king has need of the best. This book contains plenty of action, a new band of characters all from Port Caynn and a new mystery to sleuth out. This is book 2 in the Beka Cooper books, but actually book 16, I believe, in the entire Tortal series. She returns with that same drive that got her the nickname Terrier in the last book and none of the 4 partners she’s been paired with can handle that. View all 4 comments. My only complaint about the book is just that — it was I’m not sure if Ms.

As Beka delves deeper into the motivations of the criminals she now Hunts, she learns of deep-seated political dissatisfaction, betrayal, and corruption. I’m going with transgender based on some textual evidence, but it could go either way. Nov 18, Marilag rated it it was amazing Shelves: Beka has sex in the book, she doesn’t go into detail but you know she does it. Also, the tamoga isn’t just, like, smashing up all the counterfeit monies; it involves literal swimming in shit, which I think serves as a nice metaphor for a country being awash in money that isn’t even worth shit.

Mar 15, Brittany rated it really liked it. Beka also learns a lot about what a really corrupt police force looks like, which I really appreciate—a bloodhoundd of cop stories show the piierce as lboodhound pretty unequivocally the good guys, but I feel like the Beka Cooper books do a much better job of simultaneously illustrating how cops can be the good guys and why it is that bloodhoun need well-functioning police forces, but also not shying away from the fact that well-functioning police forces are actually pretty rare and difficult to achieve, and at least as often what you get is a bunch of vloodhound bullies with power issues demanding respect without doing much to earn it.


I this what really brought this book a little lower for me was the love interest for Beka. Beka doesn’t bring anything new to the table – she’s a shadow copy of the far superior Kel – and that filters into the love interest, Dale, who I found charming but forgettable. In this book, she travels to Port Caynn to investigate a silver coin counterfeiting ring and faces many obstacles as she tries to root out and stop the crime.

This, like Terrier, was a reread. Women are called ‘mots’. Beka Cooper 3TortallTortall chronological order 3more. She never gets a Mastiff and I don’t get why they would call Beka that. I didn’t get the title, however. Also in Beka Cooper. And so did Beka’s romance with Farmer, which developed fast and heavy-handedly. Iris bakes good rolls.

This last volume of the series. Since then, her bestselling and award-winning titles have… More about Tamora Pierce. However, bloodhoumd turns out as it usually doesthat my fears were unfounded and what I think sounds odd in summary turns out to be grand in actuality. Also, I really hate Dale. Why so unspecific, release date?
