Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck

Passion. Fate. Loyalty.

Would you risk it all to change your destiny?

The last thing Kelsey Hayes thought she'd be doing this summer was trying to break a 300-year old Indian curse. With a mysterious white tiger named Ren. Halfway around the world.

But that's exactly what happened.

Face-to-face with dark forces, spell-binding magic, and mystical worlds where nothing is what it seems, Kelsey risks everything to piece together an ancient prophecy that could break the curse forever.

Tiger’s Curse is one of the best books I have ever read with an incredible journey to go along with it .This novel is so amazing that I really do not know where to begin. Colleen is such an awesome writer and the depth of her research in just astounding

Let’s begin. This novel uses a first-person narrative which (my personal opinion) effectively showed the transformation of the characters. Even the antagonist of the story is so mysterious; I just couldn’t help but want to read more about him. The plot is cleverly well planned out and the Indian Mythology was fascinating. I felt like I was on an adventure, exploring a new culture and the settings are just remarkable.

Kelsey Hayes is your ordinary, sweet and lovable girl from Oregon. Fresh from high school, she then finds a temp job that completely turns her life around. Yes, she can be a bit stubborn at times but what are characters without their flaws? What about Dhiren and Kishan? I truly love the idea of them and as the pages turned; their story starts to unfold in the most extraordinary way. The stories between the two brothers are both fascinating and unique that truly captivated me. I really cannot share more deep in my thoughts for I will spoil the novel for you

I would recommend this book to every reader I meet (add to the fact that it is well written) and with that being said; do not wait for this series to be in the bottom of your TBR file.

Before I say goodbye, I would to leave you with one of many great quotes in this fantastic novel.

"I decided to find you, throw myself at your feet, and beg you to have mercy on me. Honestly, I’ll accept whatever you choose, Kelsey. Just don’t ask me to live apart from you again. Because...I can’t."
