Is Beka ready for her first real mission? Beka Cooper is having trouble settling into the Provost’s Guard.
In just five months as a full member, she’s already gone through four partners. But now she’s teamed up with the renowned Dog Goodwin and an even more famous dog—a scent hound named Achoo. Part of a team at last, Beka is sent on a special mission to Port Caynn. Once there, she delves deeper into the dark underworld of Tortall and learns that corruption extends beyond the Rogue’s Court of criminals.
It would be risky to continue to investigate, but Beka’s not one to give up the scent. Even if it means ending her career.

This series served as my overall introduction to Tortall, it’s inhabitants, and the wonderful world Tamora Pierce has created. Looking back, now, I couldn’t exactly say what made me dislike this book the first time, as it has a rather interesting storyline and some equally interesting and shady characters. Beka goes on quite the hunt here for a very large “Rat”, and that beks all I’ll say on the plot. But there is one thing more I have to say, while I enjoyed it much more than I did the first go-round this is still my least favorite in the series.
That honor doesn’t go to “Terrier”, although it is the first book and for me was my introduction to Tortall as a whole, no, but rather that bloodhoynd goes to “Mastiff”, the last book in the series, I’ll explain why when I write my review for that one.
But I absolutely and highly recommend this installment in the series and the entire series to those who love a good mystery, procedural, fantasy, all three or anything in between. Book 2 in the Legend of Beka Cooper series. I’ll start by saying that I normally don’t like 1st person narratives and avoid them whenever possible.
It took me a few months before I finally picked up Terrier, the first book in the series, and flipped through it in the bookstore. I ended up buying it, even though it was still in hardcover, which is another thing I normally don’t do.
The second book, Bloodhound, is equally absorbing. I won’t summarize the plot, as that is covered elsewhere, but I will mention a few things that I love about this particular series note that these are geared towards current fans of Pierce’s Tortall universe: Since the heroine of Bloodhound lives so many years before the time of Alanna the Lioness, there are key differences between the two timelines. In Beka’s time Tortall has slavery and in Alanna’s time Tortall does not.
Beka’s time has Lady Knights and Alanna’s time does not.
: Bloodhound: The Legend of Beka Cooper #2 (): Tamora Pierce: Books
These differences make me anticipate reading how these changes come about. Beka works in the worst part of the capital city Corus. The world you see through her eyes makes the court world of Alanna and Keladry seem innocent and pampered. And yet, the book is not dark and gritty as cooper would expect.
Seeing things through Beka’s perspective gives color, humanity, and compassion to what could have otherwise been a very depressing atmosphere.
I found that Beka’s book gave the world of Tortall, overall, a greater richness and depth. From the very first few pages of Terrier, the first book in the series, I expected Beka to eventually end up with the Rouge romantically.
Mastiff: Beka Cooper, Book 3
It seemed just perfect, considering Beka is the ancestress of the Rouge that Alanna eventually marries. It made me chuckle. However, Beka refuses blooxhound just fall in line with the inevitable plot mechanisms and continues to go her bloodound way throughout Bloodhound, developing other romantic interests and growing as a character.
If she ever does end up with the Rouge which I still root for it will be a relationship developed over time and requiring a lot of work from both parties – which is much more satisfying, I must admit. I highly recommend this book to anyone age 10 to It is an absorbing story coiper blends adventure, detective work, and fantasy. If you are like me, and don’t usually like 1st person narratives, give this series a try – it might change your mind.
A note about adult content: Since the book deals with the criminal underworld albeit a fantasy one there is some adult content example: Lboodhound my opinion this is no darker than found in the HP or Twighlight series, but if you are considering this for someone under 6th grade you may want to flip though it and determine your comfort level.
She trusts her magical ability to hear voices of the dead more than she trusts her new-found friends. Kudos coo;er Tamora Pierce, who has crafted this traditionally-difficult style with mastery, lending the bloodhoun immediacy and high tension. While each of these books as well as the final one, Mastiff can be read as standalone novels, they are much richer if read in chronological order, especially with the help of the appendix of characters and a glossary.
This series captures well the determination, perseverance, and toughness of Beka Cooper, a “Dog” policewoman in a tough quasi-London borough. Tamora Pierce does an excellent job with the jargon, slang, and language of her fictional setting. The bloodhund gets the gist without too much struggle. In this particular book, 2 of the 3 part series, Beka continues her growth and becomes a serious qualified tracker with the adoption of Achoo, the talented scent hound.
