Waiting on Wednesday (7)

This week it was obvious what I was waiting for. I have a countdown on the side and yes, it's Bloodhound (Beka Cooper Book Two). I am a huge fan of Tamora Pierce and this will be out April 28.


Beka Cooper is finally a Dog—a full-fledged member of the Provost’s Guard, dedicated to keeping peace in Corus’s streets. But there’s unrest in Tortall’s capital. Counterfeit coins are turning up in shops all over the city, and merchants are raising prices to cover their losses. The Dogs discover that gamblers are bringing the counterfeit money from Port Caynn. In Port Caynn, Beka delves deep into the gambling world, where she meets a charming banking clerk named Dale Rowan. Beka thinks she may be falling for Rowan, but she won’t let anything—or anyone—jeopardize her mission. As she heads north to an abandoned silver mine, it won’t be enough for Beka be her usual “terrier” self. She’ll have to learn from Achoo to sniff out the criminals—to be a Bloodhound. . . .

Really - can't wait.

I have never heard of this series, but will have to investigate into it now. Thank you for the heads up on this one, it sounds fascinating :)

I love a bit of Tamora too. Alanna, of course, but my favourite would have to be the series with Daine. (Protector of the Small?)Then I kinda got disenchanted by Lady Knight and the Circle of Magic or whatever it was called. But I have heard good stuff about this new series so I might give it a go.

I haven't read all of her series but those I have, I thoroughly enjoyed. And Beka Cooper was great.
BTW there is a huge list of people eager to get their hands on the arc of this at Kepler's, a longer list than for almost anything else (except maybe the Hunger Games sequel!)
