R.E.V’s ‘Must Read’ List:Colleen Houck’s Tiger’s Curse (Tiger Saga, #1)

Published July 16, 2011 by Jennifer Elizabeth

Tiger’s Curse can easily be described as “Innocently Romantic”.  The main character, Kelsey Hayes, is very naive when it comes to love and romantic relationships. Honestly, there were quite a few times while reading that I had to remind myself that Kelsey was eighteen years old and not fourteen. Houck develops the language of this character in a way that is very precise and almost unbelievable. There were a handful of times when I said to myself, “What eighteen year old talks like this?” Kelsey does. And that is what makes her character unique and capable of surviving every circumstance and situation she is thrown into.

While browsing a popular bookstore, I saw this book categorized as a “dark romance”.  There is nothing “dark” about this book. Whomever placed this book on a table labeled “dark romances” clearly did not read the book. It is more of a romantic adventure than anything. First love meets an Indiana Jones-type adventure. Tiger’s Curse is an innocent book about first love and adventure. Moms do not have to worry about this book. PG-12 would be my overall rating. This book is a fast and excellent read. Loved it!

“Passion. Fate. Loyalty.

Would you risk it all to change your destiny?

The last thing 17-year old 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.”
