Terrier (book review)
Terrier, by Tamora Pierce, is the story of sixteen-year-old Beka Cooper. Beka has just joined the police force of Corus (capital city of the land of Tortall). This force is called the Dogs. Beka, as a Puppy, is assigned to the two famous senior Dogs, Clara Goodwin and Mattes Tunstall. She'll have to learn quickly, because she's assigned to the Lower City, a dark place filled with murderers, pickpockets, and drunks. As if Beka isn't busy enough, her eerie magic tells her that there two sinister plots are going on right under the Dogs' noses! It's up to Beka and her friends to make sure that the culprits are caught before it's too late.
I loved this book and I can't wait for the next book in the series to come out! It was neat how the book was a mix of thriller and fantasy. Beka's magic was also different and interesting, but you will have to read the book to see what I mean.
