"Waiting On" Wednesday

I decided to join this meme because I always find out about such good books through it on other sites. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

I am currently lusting after Bloodhound (Beka Cooper, Book Two) by Tamora Pierce. The current release date is 28 April 2009. Want to know how long I've been waiting? TERRIER came out in Oct 2006.

I believe it will be worth the wait because of the quality of TERRIER. Beka's voice is engrossing and I enjoyed reading her beat cop/detective style adventures.

Book Cover

Amazon description:

Beka Cooper is finally a Dog—a full-fledged member of the Provost’s Guard, dedicated to keeping peace in Corus’s streets. But there’s unrest in Tortall’s capital. Counterfeit coins are turning up in shops all over the city, and merchants are raising prices to cover their losses. The Dogs discover that gamblers are bringing the counterfeit money from Port Caynn. In Port Caynn, Beka delves deep into the gambling world, where she meets a charming banking clerk named Dale Rowan. Beka thinks she may be falling for Rowan, but she won’t let anything—or anyone—jeopardize her mission. As she heads north to an abandoned silver mine, it won’t be enough for Beka be her usual “terrier” self. She’ll have to learn from Achoo to sniff out the criminals—to be a Bloodhound. . . .

  3. Oh my god I'm exactly like you. I've been waiting for three years and it drives me insane ever time I re-read the book. I wish there'd be some ARC contests around.
