Terrier (Beka Cooper Book 1) by Tamora Pierce (spoiler alert) Mon Oct 4, 2010 3:05:37 PM#135406Perm Link
I have read all of Tamora's books that take place in Tortall, and I have got to say that this is one of the best I have ever read.
The book starts out just before the Alanna the Lioness Quartet, when George Cooper (a descendant of Beka's) is six and is arrested for stealing by the Provost's Guard. His mother Elani then tells him the story of his famous ancestress, and we see in this book how her early career in the Guard starts off.
All in all, a great read and one that will keep you stuck to the book until you are done. I would recommend it to anyone who likes books about magic and/or fiction. of course, if you have read her other books that are famous Tortallans, you will definitely enjoy this book!
