Tiger's Curse

Author: Colleen Houck

Summary: (goodreads)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 the exciting first volume in an epic fantasy-romance that will leave you breathless and yearning for more.

Review: AMAZING! Something that really worked to the advantage of this book was how the book is pretty different from what we are seeing right now what with all the fallen angels, vampires, werewolves etcetera.

This takes place mostly in India and the jungle and the setting is just great. This book is definitely worth buying. It has a lovely cover and it is BLUE. I love it.

So the romance is awesome. Ren is such a great guy and even though he is hot and gorgeous, the author still revealed one or two human flaws in all his perfection. An Indian prince, Ren has a wonderful, but natural personality and also interacts well with Kelsey. They don't feel forced to me and I totally understand Kelsey's reasoning.

There were parts where I wanted to punch Kelsey for some of her actions. She is a normal teenager and stays grounded even with all the magic and wonder she sees around her and she almost borders on naive and innocent, but she really isn't. In all the parts where she did something I didn't like, she gave ample reasons and constructed a solid argument for acting like she did. This is why I liked the main character so much. I love her grounded, realistic attitude which makes her more alive as a person and also easy to relate to.

Even with a down-to-earth attitude, Kelsey made me laugh out loud various times along with Ren. Although this is an intense, action-packed adventure, there was plenty of humor and romance to go around. It is a bit over-the-top and the ending is pretty much a cliffhanger, but if you love adventure and learning about different cultures, then I think you will like this book as much as I did. Happy Reading!

I can't wait for the sequel!!!! Comes out early summer :D
