Exciting, dynamic, fun.
It feels very much like Tamora Pierce's other books, which is a very good thing in my opinion.
When Tansy has to confront Roland's ghost in the pigeon and get him to move on.
This terrier bites.
I waited a long time for these books to come out so I could read them all together, and it was such a great experience for me. I read all of Tamora Pierce's books before college, and these were all out by the time I finished, so I listened to this on my way to graduate school (I drove across the country, and got to listen to all three!).
Great character! I missed getting attached to a good character since Alanna. Becca is very rounded and wonderful. The appearance of the cat God and other animals makes the story even better tying it nicelly to Tortall's history
This series is on my top 5. Try it out 😀 you won't be disappointed. I promise!
Every time I hear this story I love it even more. Beka's insecurities are relatable, and her passion for doing he right thing, shyness be damned is wonderful. Susan Denaker is the perfect voice for Beka Cooper. And Pounce, this is the very best of all of Tamora Pierces portrayals of that cat.
This is definitely a different kind of book than the rest of Pierce's quartets set in Tortall. Good mystery and love that it takes place in a different part of a familiar world. Narrator was perfect. Beka is still a strong female character, but unlike Alana or Kel, Beka is not a noble. Cannot wait to listen to the next book in the series.
The narration was beautiful; the narrator did a great job of giving voices and personality to the main characters.
That author has woven a tale of growth and learning for the main character Beka
My favorite was the ending, where her family finally accepts her choices.
Yes, but that was impossible.
This is intended for a much younger audience, but as an adult, it was still enjoyable. It brought me back to the love I had for reading Tamora Pierce's author works as a young teen.
The Narrator was Very, Very Good. Especially with so many characters in the book.
The Book was very good. The narration exceptional. I did have to look-up what certain words meant so I could stay truly connected to the dialog. Looking forward to Book 2.
An avid reader and listener alike, High Fantasy , Alternate Fantasy and light Sci-fi are my thralls.
I loved this book as a good easy read and now a good easy listen. But I was absolutely taken by Mrs Denaker's performance. I could listen all day long and always be enthralled by her. Levity and gravity were given equal attention and I would recommend easily to both young and old alike.
I'm a twenty-something lit nerd who enjoys Romance, Fantasy and YA Fiction. I like strong female heroes and entertaining readers.
I think I've listened to this series once a year since it came out. Great characters, great reader, great everything. Highly recommend if you want a medieval procedural mystery.
