Mastiff by Tamora Pierce - ADVISABLE

Pierce, Tamora Mastiff, 575 p. Random House, 2011.  Content: PG.  Something truly awful has happened in Tortall – the king’s heir has been kidnapped by slavers and the king and queen’s health has been tied to his life.  Beka Cooper and her partners have been summoned to follow the trail and ferret out the traitors in the kingdom.  Her scenthound, Achoo, is the best in the country, but it will take much more than just following a trail, when magic and betrayal are also involved.  Now Tamora Pierce is someone who writes classic high fantasy for teens.  I love al of her books, but I do know that they aren’t really in vogue right now.  Kids who read Eragon really should read these for a much more satisfying experience.  MS – ADVISABLE.
