Tamora Peirce has done it again!

I got hooked to Tamora Peirce when I was proably in the 7th or 8th grade. I wore out the copies of Alanna and Daine's books at the library, and put a good hurting on the hardback copies of Keladry's story. Even as I got older, and the librarian started to comment on the books they had for the older age groups I now fell in, I still came back again and again to the back of the bottom shelf where they were kept. So understand that this review is written with the bias of an unwavering fan. :)

The characters was excellent, and not at all what I expected. Beka, the ancestor of George Cooper, was not the girl I had imagined Peirce would write when I first heard about the possibility of the series, years ago. Instead she is an average girl that most can relate with.

I thought the diary entries would throw me off, since most of the journal style books I have read do. But Peirce kept the entries even and detailed, and the plot moves quickly, so it didn't bother me as much as I thought.

Terrier is an excellent read and I highly recommend it, especialy for preteen and early teen girls.

    IM so sick of characters complaining about something so trivial.

    IM so sick of characters complaining about something so trivial. I couldn't finish it, and i usually hate not finishing book. If i hear her complain about her "shyness" one more time im going to scream.
