Review: Tiger's Quest by Colleen Houck

Characters: 5
Cover: 5
Plot: 4
Setting: 5
Writing: 4

Back in Oregon, Kelsey tries to pick up the pieces of her life and push aside her feelings for Ren. But danger lurks around the corner, forcing her to return to India where she embarks on a second quest--this time with Ren's dark, bad-boy brother Kishan, who has also fallen prey to the Tiger's Curse. Fraught with danger, spellbinding dreams, and choices of the heart, TIGER'S QUEST brings the trio one step closer to breaking the spell that binds them. Winner of a Parent's Choice Award!

The cliffhanger of Tiger's Curse was so unfair. So extremely unfair. I'm so glad that I came into this series late because I was just staring at the last page of Tiger's Curse and Tiger's Quest and Tiger's Voyage and going, "What? This is the last page? Wait, no, it can't be the last page! But I have to know how it ends!" Unfortunately, Tiger's Destiny, the fourth book in the saga is not releasing until sometime in September and so I'm extremely upset and I want Ms. Houck to finish writing it ASAP so I can ask for an ARC. I probably won't get one, but I want to try.

Anyway, this starts with Ren getting captured very early on in the book and Kishan and Kelsey have to embark on this whole journey by themselves. This was the time where Kishan and Kelsey really got to know each other and they really got to know each other. I really loved the romance in this book and even though I'm still Team Ren, I really liked Kishan as well because of how supportive he was and how willing he was to just step aside if that was what Kelsey really wanted. That's showing real love that Kishan feels towards Kelsey.

At first, after Kelsey is back in Oregon, the first thing she does is try to date other people. And all of a sudden, three people are just lined up at her doorstep. I think that's highly unlikely. Even in real life, if that girl was like the most popular girl in school, you don't get asked out three times by three boys in three days. That's my major problem because that's just unlikely. It would make five people—six if you count Wes from Tiger's Voyage—that were after her: Ren, Kishan, Artie, Wes—if you count him—and this other guy's name that I forget at this point. I think it started with J maybe...or T.

  1. I love this series! Yeah I really wouldn't count Wes he wasn't actually after her lol (: The cliffhangers are brutal and I honestly cried after reading the end of Tiger's Quest.

    I do like Kishan as well, but I am team Ren all the way!


I love comments, and will read every last one (even if there are like a hundred, which I doubt) so feel free to comment!
