Annotation:
Set centuries before Alanna's time--Tamora Pierce's most famous Tortall character--the first book in the Beka Cooper series is well-paced, immediately re-readable, and riveting. Murderers, thieves, and run-of-the-mill pickpockets are just a few of the things 16-year-old Beka Cooper faces when she begins training as a "puppy" with the tough "Dogs" of the Provost's Guard. Assigned to Clary Goodwin and Mattes Tunstall, some of the toughest Dogs in the Lower City (the dangerous neighborhood Beka grew up in), the girl relishes her new lifestyle, but soon discovers that all is not well. Magical animals, good-hearted rogues, violent criminals, and more come together in this entrancing young-adult fantasy.Set centuries before Alanna's time--Tamora Pierce's most famous Tortall character--the first book in the Beka Cooper series is well-paced, immediately re-readable, and riveting.
