Reader Review: My teenager introduced me to this book & I loved it - this writer is very underrated by adults. This is the story of Beka Cooper, a girl growing up tough, a fighter in the "street" police with genuine friends, a magical cat and a talent for solving crimes and being in the right place at the wrong time. Great read and we are looking forward to the next book in the series.
BEKA COOPER IS a rookie with the Provost's Guard, and she's been assigned to the Lower City. It's a tough beat, but Beka can hear the voices of the dead on the wings of pigeons, and Beka's birds clue her in to two major murderers on the loose. The rest of the Guard is busy investigating the fire opal killer, so it's up to Beka to nab the Shadow Snake.Tamora Pierce begins a new Tortall trilogy introducing Beka Cooper, a young woman who lived 200 years before Pierce's popular Alanna character. Pierce employs first-person narration, bringing readers even closer to a character that they will love for her unusual talents and tough personality.

Being the Journal of Rebakah Cooper
dwelling at Mistress Trout's lodgings
Nipcopper Close, the Lower City
Corus, the realm of Tortall
I have this journal that I mean to use as a record of my days as a Provost's Dog. Should I survive my first year as a Puppy, it will give me good practice for writing proper reports when I am required to write them as a proper Dog. By reporting as much as I can remember word by word, especially in talk with folk about the city, I will keep my memory exercises sharp. Our trainers told us we must always try to memorize as much as we could exactly as we could. "Your memory is your record when your hands are too busy." That is one of our training sayings.
For my own details, to make a proper start, I own to five feet and eight inches in height. My build is muscled for a mot. I have worked curst hard to make it so, in the training yard and on my own. My peaches are well enough. Doubtless they would be larger if I put on more pounds, but as I have no sweetheart and am not wishful of one for now, my peaches are fine as they are.
I am told I am pretty in my face, though my sister Diona says when my fine nose and cheekbones have been broken flat several times that will no longer be so. (My sisters do not want me to be a Dog.) My eyes are light blue gray in color. Some like them. Others hold them to be unsettling. I like them, because they work for me. My teeth are good. My hair is a dark blond. Folk can see my brows and lashes without my troubling to darken them, not that I would. I wear my hair long, as my one vanity. I know it offers an opponent a grip, but I have learned to tight braid it from the crown of my head. I also have a spi

Reviewer: A reader from Singapore
A new Tamora Pierce series, a must-read for fans.
At first, I was a bit thrown off by the writing style, the story is told from Beka Cooper's point of view, through events written in her diary. I didn't get why it wasn't told straight out from the protagonist's POV so we can get the action as it happens, but the author manages to translate the story very well through these journal entries.
A likable, relatable character in Beka, good allies in Goodwin and Tunstall, and great friends (made throughout the story and drawn to Beka through different circumstances) that have each other's backs-- just some elements that made this an enjoyable read. It was a fun journey seeing the growth of Beka's 'Puppy' character in her journey to establish herself as a 'Dog'.
