What the Critics Say

"Forget vampires and werewolves, tigers are the new hottest thing. The second book in Houck's Tiger's Curse series features a love triangle, passion and nonstop action. It's a guaranteed page-turner with a huge twist at the end that will leave you breathless." (RT Book Reviews)

    "Keeps getting better"
    If you could sum up Tiger's Quest in three words, what would they be?

    Action, Love, Adventure


    What other book might you compare Tiger's Quest to and why?

    I can't really think of any.


    Which character – as performed by Annika Boras – was your favorite?

    All characters Kelsey, Ren, Kishan are all done wonderfully. Even the villains, and other characters (gods, and protectors of mythical shrines) She is a fantastic narrator for this series


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes because there is to much action, and adventure you never get bored.


    Any additional comments?

    When I started this on recommendation from a friends teenage daughter, I thought "Oh no not another TWILIGHT" but it is really not and very different kind of magic and characters. Yes the female character is young and naive, but much more savvy than that dork in (TWILIGHT) She also grows as the story and continues to mature in each book. Kelsey is a very deep and well adjusted teenage who is being tried and torn by love. It is hard enough for an adult to deal with, broken hearts have to be harder for the young.. Not just for young adults, and great for long trips in car, my family really enjoys. EVERYONE LOVED.

    "OHMGOSH! THIS SERIES IS TO DIE FOR!!"

    I absolutely love the narration, and the story line. I love the characters and enjoyed every minute of this listen. Didn't want it to end. I loved the first one and it seems like each one keeps getting better & better. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Can't wait for #4 to be available!

    "The story goes on and gets even more exciting!"
    What made the experience of listening to Tiger's Quest the most enjoyable?

    The imagination and the magic with good messages underlying everthing that happens


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Tiger's Quest?

    So many of them


    What does Annika Boras bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great narration just brings another dimension into the book


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A man has many layers and a woman even more when magic plays with the universe


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it, can't wait to listen to the next one.

    "GREAT FOR READERS OF ALL AGES/GENRES"
    Any additional comments?

    Tiger's Quest (The Tiger Saga #2) had so many parts to it that I literally felt as if I'd read three seperate books once it was over...all equally amazing. I said with Tiger's Curse (The Tiger Saga #1) that Colleen Houck had instantaneeously morphed into one of my favorite authors. This book solidified my devotion to her and her phenomenal story-telling ability. Even my eight-year-old son has shown an interest in reading the Tiger Saga. I'm going to encourage him with his plan to read it as virosiously as I would if he'd planned to read the entire Harry Potter series.

    Because I loved the characters so much in Tiger's Curse (The Tiger Saga #1), I'm glad Tiger's Quest (The Tiger Saga #2) provided more, more, and more of Kelsey, Ren, Kishan, and Mr. Kadam. These are all characters who will soon be as well known as Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark, Cato, Primrose Everdeen, and Gale Hawthorne. Once this happens, I'm confident everyone will agree that this series is equally deserving of that level of attention.

    Without adding spoilers, Tiger's Quest (The Tiger Saga #2) will make you feel like your heart has been ripped from its cavity, and it's done in such a way and at such an unexpected moment that you are all the more shocked when it happens.

    "Awesome!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tiger's Quest to be better than the print version?

    I don't know because I have the first book of the series in print and I got the other 2 books on audio and enjoyed them greatlyl.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character is Ren.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried when Ren didn't remember Kelseys.

    "Love this series."

    These books are amazing. They crush your heart and make you believe in love all at the same time. You feel every hurt and laughter as if it were your heart being broke or mended. These are books you can't put down and when you do you feel out of sorts with reality for a few minutes. I highly recommend these books not just for young adults but for anyone looking for a book filed with magic, adventure, and love.

    "Slower than the first book but excellent narration"

    This is the 2nd book in the Tiger’s Curse series. This is expected to be a five book series but a release date for the 5th book, The Tiger’s Dream, has yet to be announced. I didn’t enjoy this book quite as much as the The Tiger’s Curse. It starts out a lot slower and just wasn’t as exciting.

    I listened to this on audiobook and it was very well done. The narrator does a wonderful job with all of the different accents and making character voices very distinct. She also did a great job conveying emotion as she was narrating. I really really think the narration of this series is excellent.

    Kelsey is back in Oregon trying to get back to her old life. She’s started college classes and is living on her own. However her thoughts constantly return to Ren. When the evil mage from the first book tracks her down she flees back to India. There her and Ren’s brother, Kishan, continue on the quest to break the curse.

    This book started out quite a bit slower than the first book of this series. There is a lot of Kelsey bemoaning the fact that she left Ren behind and trying to get past that by dating three guys at once. We hear a ton about her dating misfortunes and about how no one can compare to Ren. It was incredibly boring.

    About halfway through, the story really picked up pace and was exciting again. For the second half of the book it is Kishan and Kelsey trying to figure out the next part of the curse. I really enjoyed these parts with all the adventure, traps, and riddles. Pretty much those elements of the story are the reason I keep reading this series.

    I really enjoyed Kelsey’s level-headed behavior in the first book. I don’t know what happened to that in this book; she makes a lot of dumb decisions and is completely dense where Ren is concerned.

    Kishan is in the story a ton and, although he is an okay character, I just didn’t like him that much. He spends a lot of time mooning after Kelsey even though Kelsey is obviously in love with his brother Ren. I think the whole scenario makes Kishan kind of an icky character.

    There is a “twist” at the end involving Ren that you could see coming a mile away. It was soooooo predictable. I rolled my eyes and sighed when it happened. I mean seriously it is one of the lamest plot devices ever and I was really disappointed that that was the direction that Huock decided to take the story.

    Despite all my complaints I do really enjoy the adventuring, the tomb-raiding, and the interesting curse. I love the mythology throughout as well. I just felt like the story was very unevenly paced and parts were outright boring. This book could have used some serious editing.

    Although I didn't like this book as much as the first book there were parts that I did enjoy. I would recommend to those who enjoy young adult reads that include adventure and mythology; just be warned there is a bit of teen angsting in here...especially in the beginning that drags the story down some. Even give that I will continue to read this series.

    "Kishan"

    I love him and hate him. He don't leave. Plus Kelsey is just as bad. I would have up ur him or shocked him every time he tried something. Also I don't like how she didn't allow neither Ren nor Kishan to explain anything before hand. Like when she saw Ren in her dream and he was trying to tell her what would happen it Druga protected him.
