I really like the story. I like that she doesn't fall into some of the traps that come with a strong female protagonist (weakening the men or making them idiots etc). It is engaging and entertaining.
I have listened to this book four times. that is a lot because I have almost all of Tamora Pierce's books and I have listened to those even more. Always a great read and informative. I learn so much and find a new perspective. Enjoy!
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.
