    "From start to finish"

    From start to finish, Susan Deneker kept me enthralled in the final installment of Tamora Pierce's Beka Cooper series. Through all of the twists and turns and betrayals, I get so wrapped up listening to the story that I was often startled by reality. A stellar performance and probably my favorite Tamora Pierce novel ever! :)

    "Good End"

    I will miss Becca and her companions. This story made my heart hurt, but without pain then how would you understand joy? I feel this ended the story nicely and left proud of Becca achievements. The narrator did a good job at making the voices diferant, but still fealing real.

    I was a 'readaholic' for most of my life. I started crochet and other hobbies. That took away from my reading time. I discovered audio books at the library. That set me off. now, that I am older my eyes make it too difficult to read. So I now am a very diligent audio book listener!

    Story
    "A bit of a let down"

    I had to go back to book 2 to see if I had missed something. The story starts off with Beka's dead fiancee. His family is very upset with her. I couldn't understand where he came from and why he is added. He adds little to the story. The words would have been better spent on the betrayal of Beka, friends and country by a strong character that has been present from book 01. The reason for the betrayal seemed to me to be very weak and poorly thought out. It went counter to all that this character's personality as presented. It made a poor end of series novel. Book 1 starts out giving a family background to George Cooper aka The Rogue in the Lioness series. It would have been helpful to restate that George's mother was disowned by her family and kicked out of the temple. In the Lioness series, George is remarked upon has having a magical talent. Nothing is really said about what it is or how it works. I was left wondering if he had inherited Beka's talent. It was stated throughout the series Beka had many ancestors with this talent. The purple eyed cat wiped George's memory of it and its actions at the end. I felt that this was a waste. The time could have been spent giving a little insight if George inherited his famous ancestress talent and how he plans to use it. Maybe setting a foundation on how Beka's story helped George in his actions to become honest. There were long periods where the story just dragged on and on saying little or repeating things already said. If this had been the first book of this series, I wouldn't have interest in any sequels. The first 2 books of this series and other books of Tamora Pierce that I have heard are excellent. This one doesn't come up to those standards.

    "Great Book!"

    This is a great book! I love this series and I think that Tamora Pierce finished it up well. She is always throwing twists and surprises in her writing, so you aren't sure exactly what the outcome is going to be.

    "one of her better series"

    theses books are really great. as tamora pierce continues writing her style is really evolving. I love what an egalitarian society tortal is turning our to be. although, shouldn't there traditionally be a forth book??? I'm waiting lol.

    "Darn it's done 😭"

    What a wonderful trilogy! I've been listening to it all the way through from Terrier to Mastiff and I fell in love with Becca, Pounce, Achoo and everyone else too. If only there was more to her story. Sigh

    "great author, great story, and great performance"

    I don't really review often, but this series is worth reading AND hearing! All of Tamora ' s books should be read, but this narrator is truly talented. I listen to this trilogy and Aly cooper's duo over and over. if you like beka cooper, be sure to give her descendent Aly a try as well.

    "A (mostly) satisfying end"

    The ending was difficult for me to buy, but I adore the characters and style. I'm willing to forgive a lot from my favorite childhood author. I especially love the way Susan Denaker does the voice of Pounce.
