The trigoly is amazing. Beka is unlike the other protagonists in the Tortall books. Although I love the others I can relate to Beka for te fact that she is shy and only bold when she is comfortable and knows the people she is speaking with. I loved the references to the later books such as Pounce and theDancing Dove. The twists in the plotline kept it interesting. Though the beginning of the thrd book felt a bit shaky to me it straightened out. I still don't really see the point in having Beka have a fiance. I love Achoo. She is the best Dog ever, four legged too. Spoiler Alert! When Slapper died I think I cried harder than any time in this series. Maybe in all the Tortall books. The style of writing in a journal is such a hard style to write and Tamora Pierce did it th best I have ever seen. She made it believable and not sound like some of my diaries of when I tried (and failed) to keep a record of my life. She did not let it sound like a history book or some overreactive teenager. The story was so elegantly written so that it not only felt real but you were Beka and trying to find kidnappers and nurderers and conterfeiters. A couple times I let slip a few words in Cesspool cant and got strange looks. I would highly recomend this book and all books by Tamora Pierce

Probably one of my favorite series by tamora pierce. A mix of mystery.magic. action and romance. Good strong female lead who is also human, not some superwoman, that anyone who remembers their teenage years can relate to.
