    "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.

    "Loved it!"

    I really enjoy Beka. Tamora Pierce is one of my favorite authors and Susan Denaker does her writing justice. The book sucks you in doesn't let go.

    "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!

    "Technical difficulties"

    This is a five-star story but the technical glitches in the recording prevent me from giving it full marks. As of this review Audible is working on fixing the glitches in the recording. Be aware there is currently some content missing from this story.

    "Worth it -if you liked the first"

    I think I enjoyed this one mostly because I loved the first Beka Cooper. It wasn't quite as good, it spent a lot of time on her having a sexual affair (not explicit at least) which was not necessary to the story. However, it was a nice long listen (I like to get some good hours for the credit) and I would probably be willing to hear another. But if there is another, I hope some of the original and independent spunk is put back into the character.

    "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.
