SLJ review:

Gr 5-9-Tamora Pierce looks back at the magical world of Tortall in a tale (Random, 2006) set long before the events in Alanna: The First Adventure (Atheneum, 1983). In this new fantasy series, Beka, age 16, is a Puppy (trainee) in the Provost's Guard (police), known commonly as Dogs. Despite a harsh schedule and the scorn of her family, Beka never forgets where she came from or those she is meant to protect. The teen, who has extrasensory powers, is assigned to work in the Lower City, where she was born, and must help stop a crime wave. Actress Susan Denaker does a fine job with the many and varied characters in the novel, written as journal entries, providing distinct accents to help place them more solidly within the story. The heavy dialect makes it easier to listen to the book than to read it. Pierce fans will eagerly await the next installment.-Charli Osborne, Oxford Public Library, MI
