So I finally got around to reading this one. It's pretty much the only TP book I had not read up to this point. I was afraid I was getting too old for her (I'm 22) and that this book disappoint me. It didn't and exceeded my expectations. I didn't think I would like Beka or the premise, but I ended up loving both! I think she went a little heavy handed with the dog metaphor and the first person writing seemed a little awkward at times (hey, it's Tammie's first try at first person writing though). Beka is truly awesome and definitely belongs with Alanna, Daine, Kel and Alianne. I was also hoping for a lady knight since this is set 100 years before Alanna which is also when the last lady knight before her lived. I was very excited and happy with Lady Sabine! I hope to see more of her in the next books along with Rosto and Kora and Aniki. I had to squee fangirlishly when I read on Tammie's LJ that she'd finished the first draft of book 2 in the Provost's Dog series. This is my current fixation, and I'm hoping to initiate some discussion. So, I'm hoping for some feedback.

In further fangirling - she's posted the new cover on her LJ now too. I'm so excited for this! I'm just finishing law school, and I still read anything that Tamora Pierce puts out. I love her heroines and her worlds.

I think my favorite part about Terrier was the scene at the very beginning with George as a little boy... I know it's unlikely since Tammy likes to focus on female main characters, but I would so love to read George's story...

I really enjoyed Terrier. I think Beka is an excellent heroine and will go far in her adventures. I love that she is a Lower City gal and lives the right side of the law in an edgy way ;). I can't wait to see what happens with her and Rosto...if anything.
Tammy is freakin' amazing but I do wish she'd try another male hero (ehem Briar=boy). Maybe a growing George...or even one of his sons.
In comparison, I liked Beka better than Aly...what do you all think?

summerbis: I don't know if I can say that...
I love all her tortall characters, it's really hard for me to decide which one I think is the best.
But just because you ask, i would have to say that Aly's my definate fav just because the Trickster pair were the first of Tammy's books I'd read...and I always thought Aly was totally kickass. Beka is absolutely a close second, followed by Kel.

I don't know why, but I've always been a bit disappointed in Alanna for having that relationship with Liam...I never liked him and I could NOT believe she'd chose him over George. I mean come on! George is Kickass!! Is it any wonder why Aly is??? I think not.

I'm uber excited about Bloodhound though...SPRING!!! woot!
lol

Even if Liam had lived I think Alanna would have chose George. She and Liam were too different and had too many complications. It was always meant to be Alanna and George. I think Liam was just a growing/learning experience for Alanna, really.

Can't wait for Bloodhound!!! *howls*

FantasyGirl2,

I'm with you there! It's been far too long since my last Tamora Pierce fix. I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on a copy of Tortall and Other Lands as well!

I know!! I just can't wait!
I feel like, I'd do ANYTHING to read that third book (short of murder or imprisioning dear Ms. Pierce). And the Tortall and Other Lands book too.

I'm currently rereading Terrier. I love it! I think this is my favorite series by her. I just love that she's so badass, and doesn't take crap. And, Goodwin and Tunstall are SO GOOD!
I cannot wait for Mastiff. It couldn't get here soon enough.
