Waiting on Wednesday: Mastiff

This is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that
spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Pre-order from The Book Depository
Title: Mastiff
Author: Tamora Pierce
Publisher: Random House
Publication Date: 25 October 2011 (Getting close!!!)

Summary (from Goodreads):
The Legend of Beka Cooper gives Tamora Pierce's fans exactly what they want—a smart and savvy heroine making a name for herself on the mean streets of Tortall's Lower City—while offering plenty of appeal for new readers as well.  
Beka and her friends will face their greatest and most important challenge ever when the young heir to the kingdom vanishes. They will be sent out of Corus on a trail that appears and disappears, following a twisting road throughout Tortall. It will be her greatest Hunt—if she can survive the very powerful people who do not want her to succeed in her goal.

Why Mastiff? Tamora Pierce is by far one of my favorite authors, and I love the Beka Cooper series. It's about the ancestor of George Cooper (my favorite Tamora Pierce character) and is ironic because Beka basically works in the medieval-version of law enforcement while George is a master thief. I loved the first book, Terrier. The second book, Bloodhound, I didn't like as much, but that's a common reaction for me with books in the middle of a series. I can't wait to see what challenges Beka has to go through next!
