"It is fantasy, an excellent police procedural, and an immensely satisfying read. Mystery and fantasy fans will be eagerly awaiting the next installment of Beka Cooper's adventures." - VOYA
"Bloodhound retains the element of fantasy that captivated fans of Pierce's earlier Tortallan legends, but its focus on the coarse realities of city life makes Beka's tale even more relatable to modern readers well-versed in the crimedrama genre." - Alan Review
"Fans of Pierce's medieval fantasy police-procedural series will love this book as much as Terrier. Ages 11-14." - School Library Journal
"Despite the languid pace, Beka's detective work will appeal not just to Pierce fans, but to lovers of police procedurals. After all, the detail-oriented, plodding movement of the story - much like Beka's own method - builds to a well-established, satisfying revelation." - Kirkus Reviews
"[T]his teen police procedural stands on its own. ... The wealth of detail, shared in diary format, occasionally threatens to overwhelm the books pacing and action, but quirky, endearing characters save the story. Grades 6-8." - Booklist
