Provost's Dogs on the hunt

by Ellyb on Jun 18, 2009

Beka Cooper is becoming one of my favorite Pierce heroines. She works hard, she knows what she wants, and she's shy! It can be difficult to portray shy heroines as tough or effective, but Pierce handles the task with ease. In "Bloodhound," Beka has become a full-fledged Dog after surviving her year as a trainee, but she is having trouble keeping a partner. Her intensity and drive for her work scare off the other Dogs she's partnered with. However, when counterfeit silver coins start popping up in alarming frequency, she and one of her old training partners are sent to another city outside the capital to track the counterfeit coins to their source. If they aren't able to find and stop those responsible, the country's currency will lose all its value and the economic system will collapse. The descriptions of detective and police work here are thorough and clearly come from a lot of research. Once again the stakes are high; as fake coins flood the market, the price of food climbs and the common people, those Beka feels bound to protect, will begin to starve. It's a pleasure to read Pierce when she's at the top of her game, with this strong heroine and her rich palette of friends and foes (and all the ambiguous characters in between). If you have not read this series from Tortall's history, read "Terrier" first and then pick up "Bloodhound." I highly recommend it.


Excellent book

This is the second book to a series that is absolutely awesome. The character development and plot are great. The book is written in diary form which works very well. Beka Cooper is a character that you wish to see more. She is smart, funny and very, very dedicated. She is surrounded by a variety of friends that continuously grows and reflects her diverse adventures.
