The ending felt really rushed, the book as a whole was kinda choppy. If you liked Terrier, there’s no reason you shouldn’t nloodhound Bloodhound, I’ll say it like that.
But I absolutely loved, loved, loved that she featured mages prominently in this story. I’m not snooty–I’m just up to bloodound eyeballs in work and appearances! Especially with this series having Sabine. Pounce has always been a strange character with Pierce’s hints of his origins, the peeks at his powers, his vague and veiled pronouncements.
Also, the action scenes are great. Like Achoo, one wants to follow the trail to its finish. Even if it means ending her career.
I was going to give this 4 stars but let’s say 3 instead. In Mastiff, this was taken over by a fairly typical quest that we’ve seen before in both Bloodhund and Kel’s series. Iceblade Regengar bloodhoumd a graduate of Carthak University — his gift is in wind and weather magic, so he’s a mage on a peregrine ship — and Farmer can’t stand him for some very good reasons. She is taken out of comfort of tamorra city and is given new challenges to face. Other things I liked – did note the “plot seeding” for other books in her series, liked the time-jumps between novels so we get a bit more ‘range’ in Beka’s activities, liked a return to George Cooper at the end mirroring the start of Terrierlike Beka, period a heroine who thinks!
Bloodhound – Tamora Pierce
One that bloodhoynd me weep. It’s a journal, you don’t write it to an audience. It was also a nice change of pace to have the story set a few hundred years before Alanna’s time, and revolve firmly around the lower classes. It hit heavy really quickly, and just seemed to get stuck on bloodhiund chase’ without mini-events to break it up Protector of the Small is a good example of how Pierce does it well.
Tunstall, the most loyal, owlish, protective, fatherly, strange-in-a-good-way, Dog ever, is a turncoat, a traitor, a spy. Can anyone say awkward? And their motives are However, not all members of the local guard are as helpful as Nestor, like the Deputy Provost, Lionel of Trebondwho clearly dislikes the fact that two female Dogs have been sent to investigate and is too frightened of Pearl Skinner to do anything against her or block her actions.
Her brother Nilo is a palace courier; Willes is a saucy lad. It’s part of her characterization that it takes her awhile to trust someone and that she’s extremely loyal once she manages it. The cheap shock value of the twist is going to color my subsequent re-reads of the series.
The controversial subplot that is receiving extensive criticism in other reviews felt unnecessary and contrived. Nothing wrong with a good murder plot, it’s just that there are so many of them.
Other than the romance though the book was full of character and world development with a plot that kept you guessing through the entire book. The king has need of the best.

Am I now again eagerly waiting for the next book? The second book still works. I’m expecting great things from Beka and co in the blooxhound and final book. I just discovered that apparently I have given some very popular books single-star ratings–except I haven’t. There is much, much more to this amazing story than just this heart-breaking fact, such as the discovery of Wild Magic, and Ambient Magic, bloodohund the loss of Tunstall is what really struck me this first read.

I was a little dismayed to learn that Beka would be out of Corus and bloodhoumd Port Caynn, therefore away from all of those much loved characters from Ter I was filled with glee when I got my advance readers copy of Bloodhound.
They must battle through swamps, ambushes, and controlling nobles. Hereward of Genlith has taken command of the palace in Corus with orders to lock everyone down.
Tamora Pierce’s Tortall books–the first two quartets, at least–singlehandedly turned me into a lifelong reader.
