Beka Cooper: Terrier by Tamora Pierce
Beka Cooper is a puppy, training to become one of the Dogs -- the guard that polices Tortall. Joined with a pair of famed veteran Dogs, they enforce the rough & tough Lower City. Beka's a quick-witted puppy and often surprises her trainers with her skill, yet she's shy, and a much better listener and observer than talker. So when the ghosts of the dead start crying out to her, and when one of those ghosts is the young son of her friend, she begins an investigation that leads her and her dogs to the Court of the Rogue and the danger of the Shadow Snake. Greed, riches, loyalties, false faces, friendships, crime, murder....
Tamora Pierce does it again, wrapping a gripping mystery, fantastic adventure, and a story of character and strength into an engaging narrative. Though the intro pages are a bit tedious, once the story got started, it was one I didn't want to put down!
