by Tamora Pierce
Random House, $18.99, 581pp plus glossary and cast of characters
Release Date: October 25, 2011

Ms. Pierce is the author of the Beka Cooper series as well as three other quartets.

Beka Cooper is now a respected member of the provosts guard. Within hours of the death of her fiance, she is sent on a mission with her partner Tunstall, her scent hound, Achoo, the cat Pounce, and a powerful mage on an extremely secretive mission that threatens the future of the Tortalllan government. As she delves into the criminals’ motivations, she finds people of wealth, power and influence hiring powerful mages who are nearly impossible to identify. The case will take her to places she has never been, challenge her abilities and who she trusts.

A new author discovery is a treasure indeed. Ms. Pierce has created a world the reader is drawn into, characters that you become involved with, and plenty of action. (I couldn't put it down) Like fantasy that blends elements into a new form, whether you like your fantasy epic or tight, you'll want this treasure in your vault. I do. ~~  Pam Allan
