The Legend of Beka Cooper gives Tamora Pierce's fans exactly what they want—a smart and savvy heroine making a name for herself on the mean streets of Tortall's Lower City—while offering plenty of appeal for new readers as well.
Beka and her friends will face their greatest and most important challenge ever when the young heir to the kingdom vanishes. They will be sent out of Corus on a trail that appears and disappears, following a twisting road throughout Tortall. It will be her greatest Hunt—if she can survive the very powerful people who do not want her to succeed in her goal.
I have to admit that I'm pretty disappointed that the book doesn't seem to focus on the Lower City and the Rogues so much. One of my favourite parts of Beka's story is her dealing with the Rogues' Court and trying to protect her Lower City and the people within.
But still, I totally trust Tamora Pierce, and Beka's my second favourite of her heroines so I'm really excited to see the final part of her story. (And I'm hoping to see her finally get with Rosto the Piper. *cough*)
