Like its predecessor, TerrierBloodhound is much more of a crime procedural than a traditional fantasy novel. And honestly, don’t mean and stupid people often seem to rise to the top in the real world? Talk to your kids about Common Sense Media’s unbiased ratings are created by expert reviewers and aren’t influenced by the product’s creators or by any of our funders, affiliates, or partners. I mean, if a dude in his blokdhound who’s supposedly met oh so very very many ladies in his day tells you he’s never met a woman who doesn’t like being snuck up on and grabbed from behind in the street at night, that dude is either deeply, deeply stupid, or he’s lying and he thinks you’re deeply, deeply stupid, because it is wildly statistically unlikely that that is actually the case.

My main complaint with Bliodhound is the very unnecessary sex between Beka and Dale.

Stay up to date on new reviews. Weapons include knives, batons, swords, magic, and more; Sabine’s war horses can also be lethal. Charisma certainly helps, and the charismatic villain is someone we should all read lots of stories about and learn to watch out for, but there really are quite a surprising number of people who seem to acquire and keep power through sheer assholitude, despite a total lack of ability to actually manage it or to get anyone to like them.


It was awkward and funny, but eventually she got the hang of it. Dale becomes more than just someone to help the women learn about the gambling places, and the eating houses that could help aid them – he becomes someone Beka really begins to like.

Overall, Beka’s world is diverse, with characters of many different ethnicities, socioeconomic statuses, and sexualities. Slaves, including young children, are brutally killed and abused; many dead bodies are discovered and examined sometimes after being magically exhumedwith some details mentioned about their appearance and manner bloodhoujd death.

However, unlike Terrier, I have only read Bloodhound once before, and that was perhaps two years ago.

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 blodhound the professional torturers, basically for the sake of her kids, in order to stay safe so she could raise bloodbound 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.

I appreciate this because God damn do I hate it when people act like flirting is just a naturally occurring consequence of being older than 13 and like there is no social learning or construction going on. Coopr she abuses her minions and kills off co-conspirators until the remaining ones are chomping at the bit to turn on her the second it looks like they might get away with it, which is one of the elementary Evil Overlord mistakes on that list that was popular around these here Internets a few years ago.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. I love Okha, complex and lovely, flitting between man and woman but always so very sensible. Beka is a strong, resourceful role bloohdound who never shies away from a challenge or responsibility.

This volume felt very fast compared to Terrier, and I’m excited to move onto the third book in the trilogy very shortly False coins may beks feel like a huge deal, but Pierce explains the negative ramifications on the entire empire should this continue. I think I like him more than Rosto.

How Tech Is Changing Childhood. I think they might block it out on purpose because it would require effort to remember. Even if it means ending her career. There are several fights, both physical and magical including injuries to main charactersand characters are tortured for information. Pierce is prescient or just more economically savvy than the rest of us, but this book was bloidhound suitable for our times.

That felt a little out of character for Beka, who’s on the hunt hide spoiler ]. I loved seeing Beka undercover and trying to be a “loose Dog”. And it’s clear Beka is still thinking about Rosto throughout the book in the back of her mind.

coopef It’s also nice to see positive depictions of a variety of lifestyles and sexual orientations in a YA book. In Bloodhound, you see so many different sides of these two fabulous characters, and I love it.

Beka is a natural at Dog work – she’s observant and persistent, but her magical traits set her apart from the rest. In the first book Terrier you get all these twists and tell yourself, “What!?
