At one point in the story, Beka saves children from kidnappers who presumably have dark intentions. But I absolutely loved, loved, loved that she featured mages prominently in this story.
More time for the author to revise and a stronger editor would have made for a stronger narrative.
Bloodhound: Beka Cooper, Book 2 Book Review
You know early on who is doing what and the reason given of why they did it in my opinion was weak. Other people do use female pronouns for Okha, but Beka only sees them doing so at Okha’s workplace, where zie wears very feminine clothing. She was on her way to the Magistrate’s Court when she was ambushed just outside of her lodgings by Madon and Geraint Pellthe brothers of Kevan Pellwho had been arrested by Beka two weeks earlier.
As Beka delves deeper into the motivations of the criminals she now Hunts, she learns of deep-seated political dissatisfaction, betrayal, and corruption. I really missed the great setup from Book 1 of the trilogy and though we stepped aside for Book 2, I always thought she’d go back Fess is the spinner Beka encounters, who lifts her up to see a worrisome sight.
It would be risky to continue to investigate, but Beka’s not one to give up the scent. It’s weird that Baird appears to be in on their plans, bekz then helps them to leave the castle when that jerkoff of a count continues his lady’s insults. It was a hard trial to put the book down every time I had to, and once I got into the final stretch I simply could not put it down until I was finished.
Her understanding and implementation of her magic is markedly improved from what it was in Terrier.

Beka Cooper, Book 1. In we moved to Syracuse, New York, where we live now with assorted cats, a number bloodhojnd squirrels, birds, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and woodchucks visiting our very small yard. And wherever Beka goes, so do some of her animals.
As she and her partners investigate, they get word of a thin harvest, which bodes ill for the poor of the Lower City. There coopper many twists and turns that had completely escaped my memory.
Seldom Beka wears a dress like when she visits her brothers and sisters at Provost’s house or when she plays the role of a loose Dog on the investigation concerning the false coins.

Our ratings are based on child development best practices. And there’s a rather heartbreaking bit about one of the Cage dogs in particular, how she left the street beat and became a Cage dog that’s the professional torturers, basically for the sake of her kids, in order to stay safe so she could raise them without worrying that she was going to die, but the job has inured her to enacting violence upon the helpless so much that she’s started hitting her kids.
Pounce is her “cat”, a constellation and not a god, thank cooepr very much. It took me a few months before I finally picked up Terrier, the first book in the series, and flipped through it in the bookstore. This is a fair sequel to Terrier, a YA novel about a young woman who enters what is effectively the police force in the capital of a pre-industrial kingdom.
I liked this entry better than the previous book in the trilogy, but neither approached the quality of the first book. So they, too, disapprove of Beka’s decision to become a Dog. Because of her year of training for the work of a Provost’s Guard and the combat training even after she actually began working, Beka is good at fighting, as she must be for her work.
