rating: 5 of 5 stars
In this long awaited sequel to Tamora Pierce's Terrier our heroine Beka Cooper is now a full-fledged dog who has difficulty keeping a partner. This new book takes her to Port Caynn to solve the mystery of the counterfeit coins that are circulating through Corus and Port Caynn. Together with her former training partner Goodwin, Beka investigates the gambling dens and the court of the Port Caynn Rogue.
Pierce has done a lot of character development in this second novel, and we begin to see more from once shy and mousy Beka. This book is definitely a worthy sequel to the first book. Highly recommended to fantasy fans and anyone who likes to see strong female characters. I just hope the wait for the third book in this series, Mastiff, isn’t quite so long.
