"Dear Amazon.com Customer,
As someone who has expressed interest in books by Tamora Pierce, you might like to know that Terrier (Beka Cooper) will be released on October 24, 2006. You can pre-order your copy by following the link below.
Tamora Pierce begins a new Tortall trilogy introducing Beka Cooper, an amazing young woman who lived 200 years before Pierce's popular Alanna character. For the first time, Pierce employs first-person narration in a novel, bringing readers even closer to a character that they will love for her unusual talents and tough personality.
Beka Cooper is a rookie with the law-enforcing Provost's Guard, and she's been assigned to the Lower City. It's a tough beat that's about to get tougher, as Beka's limited ability to communicate with the dead clues her in to an underworld conspiracy. Someone close to Beka is using dark magic to profit from the Lower City's criminal enterprises--and the result is a crime wave the likes of which the Provost's Guard has never seen before."
:: mutters and paws at wallet:: Book collection doesn't mind being a bit bigger, does it?
(No, I'm not pre-ordering. Come to think of it, I haven't picked up new books for a long time now. Just used books. But still, another thing to buy at some point. Marrrrrf.)
