Not as tame as Terrier, but still well-written and captivating

Bloodhound: Beka Cooper is yet another well-written, captivating novel by Tamora Pierce. There is quite a bit more "mature content" (as you can see in Common Sense Media's description of the book) as far as Beka's life outside of her Dog work goes. However, it doesn't go into detail. While it may not be as tame as Terrier, it really is a great novel with a wonderful plot if you look past that.
