Tiger's Curse (The Tiger Saga #1) by Colleen Houck
★ ★ ★ ★ ★ (5 Stars)
This is an AMAZING... PHENOMENAL... WONDERFUL series, and it has instantly shot to the top of my personal all-time favorite series list. I should mention that I have three series tied for the top spot honors, meaning I could never choose between them. All are equally great in their own way.
In awe of this story, I could go on for pages and still not do justice to Colleen Houck's brilliance as it relates to this series. Instead, I will say Tiger's Curse (The Tiger Saga #1) is a perfect beginning to this amazing story. You can't keep yourself from falling in love with the very meek, extremely gentle, and absolutely endearing characters. I'm in love with every last one of them: Kelsey, Ren, Kishan, and Mr. Kadam.
The story is as intriguing as the characters. We are not forced to like anything about it. The aspect which makes this better than the rest is the way Colleen Houck allows us to fall in love with each and every character through their actions, their stories, and their love of each other. Also, she has a talent for making the reader curioius. I found myself mentally planning a visit to India because of her beautiful descriptions.
This is another one of those stories that can easily be appreciated by anyone. The book gives us plenty of action and lots of wonderfully intimate moments. There is nothing (sex or profanity) that would make me shy away from recommending to avid readers younger than eighteen. Honestly, Tiger's Curse (The Tiger Saga #1) is a great read for anyone and everyone. As I said earlier, there are few that I would recommend higher.
