The Beka Cooper books have a strong finish. Mastiff is a somewhat disappointing conclusion to Tamora Pierce's Beka Cooper series. Mastiff is particularly well crafted, with an exciting plot, excellent character growth, and some truly heartbreaking developments. I liked this entry better than the previous book in the trilogy, but neither approached the quality of the first book.

Part of Beka Cooper series by Tamora Pierce. Three coves waited for us at the end of the dock. Two of them were from the king’s personal bodyguard, the King’s Own, marked out by their silvery chain mail and their bright blue tunics. They had horses with them, six with saddles and three for packs. Without a word they came and took our things. They strapped our belongings on the packhorses, which already had some baggage. The oldest stopped only for a moment to talk with Lord Gershom, a moment that left my lord white-faced and staring out to sea. The third man was not from the King’s Own.

Legend 33
I love Tamora Pierce. Her Alanna series ignited my love for fantasy books in 6th grade. This book is a nice addition to that series, told from a different perspective. Her preceding Tortall series told it's story from the perspective of nobles. The Beka Cooper series tells the story from the commoner perspective.
I enjoyed the story, especially for the familiar places and ancestors I remembered from previous novels. The main character is the Great Grandmother of a major, and loved, character in the Alanna series. The story was well paced and had new language unique to the time and world.
The biggest problem of this book, for me, was the author's need to tie the world up in a bow by the end of the novel. It also felt, at times, Ms. Pierce had a virtual check list to complete at the end of the book. I enjoyed the connections to earlier work, but new readers may not be so enamored.
All in all, it was nice to read a book set in this time period, from the common perspective. It seems everyone in books, wants to be a noble or marry a noble or be made a noble. Beka and Pierce show the reader it's cool to be common, and female.

For me, of the three books that make up this trilogy, which served as my overall introduction to Tamora Pierce, and the world that she created, this one is my absolute favorite. I remember the first time I read it, it struck me as rather dark, something which I hadn't encountered in a YA novel, very often, or at least not then, I hadn't. It's tightly woven, filled with political intrigue, and more. So much more. I'd love to say more, but I don't wish to spoil the plot. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this one if you enjoyed the previous two books in the series, if you love medieval fantasy, medieval mysteries, procedurals, political intrigue, or all of these things.

Mastiff is book three of the Legend of Beka Cooper by Tamora Pierce.

In Mastiff, we follow Beka a few years after her last adventure. She’s still a Dog, still fighting crime. But now, she’s also fighting her heart. Her betrothed has just died, and she isn’t feeling the grief she thinks she should be feeling. About that time, she is called away in the middle of the night for a Hunt with her partner, Tunstall, and her scent hound, Achoo. Traveling to the Summer Palace, they realize the Prince has been kidnapped, and it’s up to them plus a Dog-Mage, Farmer, to get back the heir to the throne.

But the plot is deeper than they realize, and the Hunt longer than they hoped. Joined by Lady Sabine, the four must cross the realm in search of the Prince. And along the way, somehow become a team despite their diverse backgrounds and social classes.

Mastiff, more so than even the first two Beka books, really shows an adult Beka learning the hardest lessons in life. Who to trust, and how to open her wounded heart.

I fell in love with Tamora Pierce's Beka Cooper books for the strong female lead's commitment to justice and her humble rise from childhood poverty. These books are young adult fantasy crime novels at their finest. In the final book of the series, Mastiff, Beka and a small band of trusted friends are sent on a hunt for a kidnapped royal. As the team grows tighter through their dangerous path, knowledge of a traitor becomes apparent. Beka must question her relationships to all of her friends but one, her trusty scent hound Achoo. When the traitor is reveled, readers are left to question why.
I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. I found Pierce's twist taunting me to skip ahead and solve the mystery so I wouldn't go crazy, but I resisted and boy am I glad I did. It made the revelation of the traitor all the more emotional and thought provoking. It made me ask what I would do for the sake of money, love, and power in a time of confusion. The depth in which Pierce examines a person's relationship ties is beautifully written. While Beka's ties to the crown and justice are not shaken, she suffers from love gone sour, new love under question, and growing distrust of old friends. I appreciated the way Pierce did not try to turn this into a love story.
This novel covers the effects of poverty, slavery, political upset, the morality of justice, and the pressures of working through hard times. While there are no modern curse words, there are old English forms that can be upsetting for those who do not like strong language of any kind. This novel also shows the negatives of slavery in a time when parents sold their own children to survive, child slaves were abused, and individuals didn't question their place as a slave.

Another excellent story from Pierce, suitable to all ages but especially enjoyable for female teens Becka continues to provide a role model and encourage young people to set goals and maintain their personal honor, even in difficult situations. The plot is challenging and has a few surprises you won't see coming. As always, Pierce's writing is skilled, uses suitable vocabulary and has an understanding that girls and women are people, not statues on pedestals. Love is covered in all its many faces, lust and living together are different from a meeting of equals.The story opens at the funeral of Becka's fiance-and her guilt at surviving and not loving him enough.A challenging assignment arrives before she sorts out her emotions and she continues to work out being an adult as the dangerous adventure unfolds. The story is careful not to indulge in prurient descriptions but is detailed in describing Becka's feelings.
