    Description

    Tamora Pierce begins a new Tortall trilogy by introducing Beka Cooper, an amazing young woman who lived 200 years before Pierce's popular Alanna character. For the first time, Pierce employs first-person narration in a novel, bringing readers even closer to a character they will love for her unusual talents and tough personality.

    Beka Cooper is a rookie with the law-enforcing Provost's Guard, and she's been assigned to the Lower City. It's a tough beat that's about to get tougher, as Beka's limited ability to communicate with the dead clues her in to an underworld conspiracy. Someone close to Beka is using dark magic to profit from the Lower City's criminal enterprises, and the result is a crime wave the likes of which the Provost's Guard has never seen before.

    love it

    I love Tamora Pierce's novels and Bekka Cooper's story has quickly become one of my favorite. The style in Terrier is somewhat different from her other Tortallian novels but it is very refreshing, written in the style of a journal, we see everything through the shy but determined eyes of Bekka Cooper. Although Bekka has the soul of all the Tortallian heroines from the previous series, there is something decidedly different about her in comparison to Daine and Alanna. Perhaps it is because Bekka grew up in the city slums and lived a completely different life that makes her views so much different to that of the noble-born Alanna and the outcast Daine.

    Although the audiobook read with a one person cast, Susan Denaker does expressions, accents and voices very well. I could almost imagine Rosto the Piper or Mathias Tunstall read by completely different people.

    I love the book and am waiting eagerly for the second novel in the Bekka Cooper series, Bloodhound (both the novel and audiobook versions)

    Tammy Pierce Has Done It Again

    Tamora Pierce really has done it again with the Beka Cooper series. I have just about every single one of her books and I'm of the 21 and over variety of fan. She has a way of spinning a tale that totally sucks you in every time. Be warned that because Pierce is writing within the constructs of a historically accurate "medieval time period" there will be violence, killing, and more adult situations for characters younger than you might think appropriate, but she keeps it clean for the most part. I keep coming back to the Beka Cooper series and Tamora Pierce's other work over and over again simply because I enjoy it. It's good Young Adult fiction and you can't underestimate it. I highly recommend this book.

    If your trying something new... Check this out.

    Would you listen to Beka Cooper Book 1 again? Why?

    Down the road after I forget parts.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything just works together, its an easy listen.

    What does Susan Denaker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I can listen to very few female narraters, Its not sexist, its simply I can't stand when they try and do male voices, Susan Denaker is a cut above the rest. I look forward to the rest of the series knowing there is a good narrater.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    One last good twist at the end.

    Any additional comments?

    Get it!

    Best of both worlds

    Any additional comments?

    Susan Denaker is fabulous with voices, and her basic narration style is rich and engaged. I love the story itself as a great find for gritty female role models, with a lot of 'the world isn't a perfect place, but you still try to be a worthy person in it.' Did I mention that Susan Denaker is fabulous with the narration? Total win for young adult fiction.

    Rich and Dramatic

    An excellent book brought delightfully to life by the narrator. The setting is detailed and complex, characters are never simple, and the mysteries are not straightforward. As Beka seeks to find her way and prove herself, we are swept along into a world of crime and friendship and complicated loyalties.

    The narrator's use of accents and voices is spot on - we recognize the characters that populate the world at once.

    A great story about a Shero.

    Tamora Pierce has written a great story about a young girl who dreams of being a Dog, essentially a police officer. This is the first book of the Beka Cooper series. This book is also prequel to the Alanna Series and deals with her husband the spymasters family history.

    In this book you learn about Bekas background and why she wants to become a Dog. You are also in a journey of her early training to become a Dog and how she and her trainers solve 2 big cases. It’s an exciting book and even caught my husbands attention and my youngest daughter is beyond thrilled that I have added it to my audible library. Tamora Pierce writes for the YA age group, but I still enjoy her stories because she is such an awesome writer.

    Just as I remember and even better

    I read this book in high school. So when I saw the audiobook I thought I would give it a chance. I was not disappointed The narrator does an excellent job of voicing the characters. I am especially impressed by the male voices! Overall this narration does not take away from my fond memories of reading the book. Will have to read the next to see if this keeps up.

    Very good

    This book doesn't sound too promising at first, but it picks up as it goes on. I thought that the main character's shyness was made a bit too obvious, but it was well done other than that.
    I think it's a very good book and worth the download.

    Great Characters

    I love this character, I love this world. Her determination, sense of ethics, and shyness are all perfect. ♥️
    There is more crude language than I like, but very well used.

    Vorgeschichte zu den Alanna Büchern

    Susan Denaker liest sehr gut, mit wechselndem Timbre und passender Tonhöhe für die verschiedenen Personen der Bücher (dies gilt für Terrier, Bloodhound und Mastiff gleichermaßen); es ist immer angenehm zu Zuhören und gut verständlich!

    Die Story ist inhaltlich spannend, gut geschrieben und nimmt den Leser mit in die frühe Tortaller Welt (die in den ersten Büchern von T. Pierce mit Alanna von Trebond so wunderbar eröffnet wurde); man muß aber keinesfalls die Alanna-Bände gelesen haben, es ist eine unabhängige Geschichte.
    Ein bisschen tortaller Mittelalter, immer ein Funke Magie, welcher Art auch er sei, Kämpfe und - da die Hauptperson Rebecca Cooper ein "Dog", also Polizist Tortall's ist - die Suche nach der Auflösung des jeweiligen Kriminalfalls sind die unterhaltsamen Bestandteile der 3 Beka Bücher.
    Und eine kleine Prise Liebe ist auch dabei: aber wirklich nur ein bisschen :-)

    Sprachlich ist das Englisch eine kleine Herausforderung; bis man sich eingehört hat sind vor allem die "Spezialausdrücke" (mit denen Tamora Pierce das tortaller Mittelalter transporieren möchte??) wie z. B. Cove für Mann/ Kerl etwas anstrengend. Mit ein bisschen Geduld findet man sich aber in all Dies ein, und dann macht das Zuhören wirklich Spaß.

    Best Series ever

    I love all Tamore Pierce's books but the Beka Cooper trilogy is outstanding. Great narrator!
