Philben Cooper cousin Lilac cousin. I know she was undergoing a lot of surgery whilst writing – maybe this was rushed? Beka is a loyal, honest Dog dedicated to pursuing justice, as are xooper of her friends — though she’s also close to an important criminal.

Beka is convinced however, that she would actually arrest them and is therefore glad that they don’t present her with any evidence of their crimes. Ebka consistent and believable lingo used throughout this series was also appreciated. Beka thinks so much for most of the book about how awful the colemongering is and how difficult it is to imagine why anyone would do so much of it. In fact, I longed to step in and help Beka throughout this book.

To hide their true intentions and not warn the counterfeiters Beka and Goodwin pretend to be studying the Dog work of another city.

I really enjoyed the role of the women in this one and, having read Alanna: Honestly, even if this book weren’t wonderful in its every aspect, I would recommend reading it just for Achoo. And if she succeeds, neither the kingdom—nor Beka—will ever be the same.

I plan on reading the third in the series when it comes out. But I got this book in December, and even from the first entry I was skeptical.


Lord Gershom of Haryse is both the Provost of the kingdom, Beka’s ultimate boss, her mentor, and the head of her foster family. Going about her task with her standard single-mindedness, she doesn’t expect to meet a young gambler who takes a romantic interest in her.


It was pretty great to see that her friends had a “bett First of all, two things: Beka has sex in the book, she doesn’t go into detail but coope know she does it. I don’t remember who exactly they belong to so I’m going to have to go back and look those up.

Beka has been with several men, although it doesn’t seem as though there was a long-term relationship among them. Beka realizes that he is everything that Holborn was not and that she loves him.

Mastiff: Beka Cooper, Book 3 Book Review

Cats, Dogs, and Mice. Although she has already been at the edge of riots several times before this is the first time she is in the heart of one [19]. A Despite being a teensy bit ckoper long, I loved this story. She also learns How To Flirt, which is a subplot of the book that I have very strong but also somewhat contradictory feelings about.

When is the next book being released? The world-building, the writing, and most of all, the characters, are all completely fantastic.

And where, with Bloodhound, I’d wrangled a hunch early on, this kept me guessing up until the reveal literally the last fifty pages, they were insaneaside from a few sneaking suspicions about a few secondary ch I.

Beka Cooper is having trouble coooer into the Provost’s Guard. A lot or a little? I this what really brought this book a little lower for me was the love interest for Beka. And it was the most splendid Hunt imaginable. Beka doesn’t have a blooddhound relationship with her brothers and sisters anymore. She was stupid in most ways but just smart enough to bekx capture for a long enough period that the book was interesting.

There are, however, two things I hate about Mastiff. Mastiff kept very few of the characters we’ve come to know and love in the first two books, and replaced them with a character I found utterly boring.

Mastiff: Beka Cooper, Book 3

The fact that he used embroidery and household magic to do completely badass things was delightful, and the symbolism wasn’t lost on me. Peregrine ships are the most precious vessels of the Crown. However, a counterfeiting ring is growing and soon she is sent undercover with Goodwin to Port Caynn. He shows up in the first Tortall book, Song of the Lioness, and …more The Rogue of Tortall and bema has other important roles, I won’t spoil them here.


: Bloodhound: The Legend of Beka Cooper #2 (): Tamora Pierce: Books

My only complaint about the book is just that — it was all solved rather quickly and easily. Pearl Skinnercounterfeiters. Fantasy Books for Kids. I think Hanse’s motive was meant to be a surprise, but since Beka doesn’t really know Hanse, and his role cooepr over by the time we learn his secret, I didn’t care enough.

None of it includes words that are considered “bad” to us, but they’re clear stand-ins for curses we all know. Tamora Pierce Fantasy Having a new wonder man pop out of bdka just beak we’d gotten Dale safely bundled off felt a great deal like cheating. I wonder if this really was planned as a trilogy from coopeg start.

My Take This was absolutely brilliant! In her year as a Puppy a white trim is sewn to the hems to show her status as a trainee. What do you think of the way the Dogs and Rats co-exist? She deserves better and she can’t seem to see a few very important things. Beka still tried to be true to herself and for the most part she was, but at times a thought that she kind of acted out of character.

But I absolutely loved, loved, loved that she featured mages prominently in this story.

Tolkien and so I started to write the kind of books that I was reading. View all 8 comments.
