Publisher Comments:

Beka Cooper is finally a Dog — a full-fledged member of the Provost's Guard, dedicated to keeping peace in Corus's streets. But there's unrest in Tortall's capital. Counterfeit coins are turning up in shops all over the city, and merchants are raising prices to cover their losses. The Dogs discover that gamblers are bringing the counterfeit money from Port Caynn. In Port Caynn, Beka delves deep into the gambling world, where she meets a charming banking clerk named Dale Rowan. Beka thinks she may be falling for Rowan, but she won't let anything — or anyone — jeopardize her mission. As she heads north to an abandoned silver mine, it won't be enough for Beka be her usual "terrier" self. She'll have to learn from Achoo to sniff out the criminals — to be a Bloodhound. . . .

I love Tamera Pierce's books and Bloodhound is Great! I recommend this for both male and female teens and adult readers. All her books are wonderful adventures with a little bit of magic thrown in. Good Values. The slang and Dialect she uses in the story are great fun and very creative.

It was slower than Terrier but I think it was worth reading.
I liked that Achoo was a big part of the story. I would say more but then you might not bother reading it!
That would be too bad.

Tamora Pierce's "Bloodhound" is the long-awaited sequel to "Terrier," the first book in the "Beka Cooper" or "Provost's Dog" trilogy and turns out to be well worth the wait. Fans of the first book might be a little disappointed to find that some of the characters from "Terrier" have very little page-time in this novel, but will likely be comforted by the first real glimpse in any of Pierce's Tortall novels of the city Port Cayne, not to mention Beka and her companions' startling brand of humor. Despite the serious and dangerous nature of Beka and Goodwin's assignment, readers will find themselves laughing out loud at their wry comments and well timed jokes. The search for counterfeiters is very different from Beka's quest for the diggers and the Shadow Snake in "Terrier", and serves to keep the series and Beka's growth as a Dog and in her personal life fresh and intriguing. The scent hound Achoo, the latest addition to Beka's team, is wholeheartedly endearing. There are several new characters in the book, all wonderfully fleshed out, and Pierce bravely and delicately tackles gender-identity issues avoided by lesser authors (for this I applaud her). Fans of Pierce's Tortall books will be delighted by additional names and places they recognize from "Song of the Lioness" and newcomers will simply be enthralled by Pierce's captivating world, fascinating narrative, and a heroine worthy of the title.
