Book Review: The Tiger's Curse

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, spellbinding 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.

Tiger's Curse was really high in my TBR because let's be true, the summary actually makes the story to look unique and original!!

And it is. I really liked the whole curse idea with the tigers and adventuring to break it. The clues, the riddles were a nice touch, even though they weren't that clever or actually difficult to solve. So there is that.. Unfortunately, as good as the book started i just had way to many problems with it after the first half.

I tried to ignore the fact that her foster parents, didn't really care about her and let her go alone with a strange man on a trip. Are they really any phone calls after it too? No i don't think so. But the bad thing was how the story was written in general. Ren spends a lot of his time as a tiger, which mean he can't talk, that cause less dialog and more descriptions. Annoying and unnecessary descriptions, that tire you. Whenever they were going into the jungle, i thought i won't manage to finish the book. Still, i went on.

But here we are with another problem. To tell you the truth the characters are nothing special and Kelsey seems more naive, than clever as her author try to convince us for her. Res is fine, but i prefer him as a tiger. Anyway, there are some love sparks in here and you can actually see Kelsey falling in love with him (too many descriptions of how hot he is btw). BUT about the last quarter of the book the author decides to make Kelsey afraid (?) of her love for him and try to stay away from him, and pretty much destroys everything. Except it really didn't make sense to me, it was way too obvious that the whole thing happen so there is a triangle with his brother (i'm betting on that!!) later. And i do hate forced triangles....

All in all, it kept me but the "bad" parts overshadowed the good ones and right now, i'm really not in mood to actually read on with the series.


  1. Too bad about the book, especially with such a great summary. I love the idea of the riddles.

    1. Aye :(
      If you want a good book with mystery and riddles though, try Kathey Reich's series "Virals". They are awesome!

  2. I got a copy of book two of this series. Now I don't know if I will buy the other books anymore *sigh*


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
