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!
This is one of my favorite books to read, and hearing the story of Janelle, Saetan, Daemon, and Lucivar was terrific. The book is technically a transition book, continuing the story of Daughter of Darkness, and leading to the end of the tainted Blood in Queen of Darkness (which I am eagerly awaiting for on audiobook). It follows Janelle's recovery from her rape, growing into her power, and finally creating a court to save her people. My only disappointment was with the narrator. At times, it seemed like he got tired and lost track of what character was speaking and just used his "narrator voice." The other problem was that he used the same tone of voice for someone snapping something as someone whining about something.
