Publisher's Summary

Beka Cooper is finally a Dog, a full-fledged member of the Provost's Guard, dedicated to keeping peace in Corus' 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.

Beka goes a hunting

As the second book in this series, we get to see Beka more as she is as a person and as she is without so many people watching over her. There are trials and tribulations sure, but she manages quite well without much help from others. This is also one of the first times we see Beka in a romantic way and being a typical teenage girl. It's really amusing to see her navigate romance while in the middle of a tricky hunt. As per usual with Tamora Pierce, we see Beka develop more into a strong, confident woman and beat the bad guys at their own game.

great sequel

I loved the book! Tamora Pierce is one of my favorite authors, and this book is a fabulous example of her work. The book continues the story of Beka Cooper that was started in Terrier.

Beka's personality clearly comes out early in the book when she discusses her troubles finding a new Dog partner. Listening to Beka's troubles dealing with her first serious relationship, with a man that she's lying to and using to find counterfeiters, is entertaining and touching when she struggles to deal with the relationship ending. I'm eagerly awaiting the third book, Mastiff, to read and listen to!

Action-filled sequel

After the disappointment of "Melting Stones" it was great to see Tamora Pierce back on track in "Bloodhound". I enjoyed it every bit as much as I expected to. It's as engaging as the first Beka Cooper book, and I think the journal style suits the action very well. Odd that I'm not as fond of Pounce as I am of his counterpart in the Alanna series though. He just seems a lot less sympathetic. Not that I decidedly dislike him, but I didn't mind that he wasn't there for most of this book.

I do think Tamora Pierce tried too hard to be "politically correct" though. One of the main characters is gay, and far too much time is spent on Beka explaining why "that's okay, even though some people don't like it", which ended up really bugging me. If he's gay, he's gay. Just leave it at that. No need to start preaching at the audience.

Susan Denaker did a really good job of narrating the story. She sounded a bit too old to pass for a teenage girl, but did both voices and emotions well, so I can forgive her for not being the right age.
