Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Legend of Beka Cooper gives Tamora Pierce's fans exactly what they want — a smart and savvy heroine making a name for herself on the mean streets of Tortall's Lower City — while offering plenty of appeal for new readers as well.

Review:

"This concluding title in the Beka Cooper series is the best yet, a tasty blend of detective work, romance, magic, and treachery." Booklist

Review:

"Pierce has long been lauded for her kickass heroines, and in Beka she has created her most compelling, complicated character....[T]his novel provides both crackerjack storytelling and an endearingly complex protagonist." Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

About the Author

Tamora Pierce has completed four series of books set in the fantasy realm of Tortall. Pierce's fast-paced, suspenseful writing and strong, believable heroines have won her much praise: Emperor Mage was a 1996 ALA Best Book for Young Adults.

This was a great conclusion to this awesome trilogy by Tamora Pierce. It introduces some new characters that blend fantastically with the older characters. This is a great book that I would recommend to anyone.

Great book, latest one in the Beka Coope series. Highly entertaining. Similar to Terry Pratchett's guards novels. Strong female lead. Worth your time.

I absolutely loved this third - and last - novel in the Beka Cooper trilogy, and was pleasantly surprised at how different it was from the first two books. While still written in diary format, Mastiff seems to be aimed at a little older audience, and has quite a few twists and turns in the plot that the others didn't have. Some readers may not like it because the overall story has a rather dark undertone, but to me that just enhanced the character development and made it even harder to put the book down than it would have been otherwise. I definitely recommend this book for anyone looking for an engaging adventure, as well as for long-time Tamora Pierce fans such as myself.
