Editorial Reviews

Not much has changed in the young adult fiction world since the Twilight Saga hit the bookshelves, charming tweens and beyond with a story of lustful romance with a supernatural bent. Waves of like-minded narratives have been riding the coattails of the famous series' roaring success, but few are as thrilling and unique as Colleen Houck's Tiger's Curse. An enchanting story that takes place primarily in India (a setting ripe with potential for the vivid descriptions Houck delivers), Tiger's Curse is grounded in Indian mythology and culture. Annika Boras narrates with Sanjiv Jahveri, and they more than meet the challenges of performing a contemporary story told in a mysterious, foreign setting.
When 17-year-old orphan Kelsey attends a local summer job fair, she feels that nothing is beneath her. One week later, she finds herself temping at a circus, where she is tasked with caring for an unusually docile white tiger named Ren. Given how smoothly Kelsey is able to care for Ren, she is asked to accompany him on his transport to India, where he will return to his owner. With nothing left for her at home, Kelsey seizes the opportunity for this unique experience. She soon discovers that Ren is in fact not a tiger, but a handsome prince trapped by a curse cast upon him many years ago. The story quickly evolves into an engrossing romance between Kelsey and Ren, with a race against time to break the tiger's curse.
Between the exotic Indian landscapes and the Indiana Jones-like obstacles Kelsey and Ren walk into, Boras has plenty of colorful material to work with. From her astonished reaction at discovering of the tiger's true identity to her calculated determination as she pieces together how to break the curse, Boras approaches every scene with keen awareness of her character. Such is a testament to her erudite storytelling. Listening to her tackle such a diverse array of description, setting, and characters is the best way to experience this novel. Tiger's Curse will leave you breathless for days. —Suzanne Day

Critic Reviews

"A smart, vibrant adventure romance wrapped in a quest… takes the protagonists through adventures that would make Steven Spielberg proud… Full of danger, dash, allegory, and love under the banana tree." (Kirkus Reviews)

Great Book!!!

I read this book first on my Kindle, loved it and had to get the second on right away! Soon, my teenage daughter had to read a book with foreign influence for her English class, but she was paired with 3 guys who didn???t want the sappy love stories; they wanted action. I recommended this book (it has both and would make everyone happy). To my surprise I ended up getting 5 copies of the book because the guys fell in love with the book and were excited to finish reading the book as fast as they could. Then they had to read the second book too???they fought over the Kindle version just to read it. This is a great book and I love all the attention to detail, makes you want to go and see all the places described.

Love the premise!

Such a great idea for a book! The adventure and mythology is wonderful and the author can write a fantastic romance/love scene. A female Indiana Jones meets hot Indian weretigers! I enjoyed the little bits of literature slipped into the plot. I plowed straight through the whole series.

Now for the bad: Poorly edited, overly drawn out plots, a strange mix of childish and adult language and themes, everybody is a Mary Sue.

Overall, you will roll your eyes - a lot. But you may be having too much fun to care.

Tiger's Curse

Two Indian Princes bound by a centuries old curse. Trapped in the bodies of tigers and only able to be men for a brief time each day. To lift the curse they must complete several magical tasks but they can't do it alone. They need the help of an ordinary 21st century girl. So begins a compelling tale of adventure, fantasy and romance. This is rich in detail and draws on Hindu mythology. I couldn't put it down.

Couldn't put it down!

I loved this book, I usually have one audible book a month and make it last but Tigers Curse was too good to make it last a whole month I managed a week. I can't wait for the next book.
