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)

    I am a book junkie...I read and enjoy a variety of stories, so please don't "define me" by one book or review! :)

    "Compelling Story!"

    My fondness for this story could be compared with the unconditional love you have for that very important or special person in your life - because you take them flaws included. The overall storyline and the characters are the strong aspects that keep me (you) with this story. The actual writing itself is up and down with it's stronger scenes and then weaker points, unfortunately not consistent throughout. The author shows definite potential and artistry in some scenes, while others may make you go "really?" and shake your head, feeling like you are being asked to suspend-disbelief, but not in the positive, fictional sense, but only in the sense of "no one would ever really do that"..for the main character's response, or more accurately lack of response, in some situations. In this installment, we have the brief satisfaction of a reunion, then trouble arises, characters are separated again, and we find Kelsey off on a quest/adventure with Kishan. The development of their friendship/relationship is a fun ride. This story makes a great audio experience, though. The narration is good, in my mind Annika Boras comes alive as Kelsey and is quite convincing. She does a good job of conveying her emotions and confusion. Not to mention I must say Ren is a pleasure to "listen to".

    "A great read"

    I downloaded Tiger's Curse first because of all the positive reviews I read here about it. I was very glad I did. Although, Im in my 40's, and these books may be geared more for the young adult, I was thrilled with the story and really connected with the characters.

    Finishing the first I immediately downloaded Tiger's Quest and was still very pleased with the story, characters, and action.

    The third book, Tiger's Voyage is due to be released November 2011 and I can hardly wait.

    Try them, you won't regret it.

    Annika Boras also made this a great listen, she does a wonderful job and brings a true voice to each character.

    Wife to a wonderful husband and mother to four children, ages 17 to 9 (boys and girls). My husband and I are avid audiobook listeners along with all the kids. Between all of us we have a very eclectic library and try to rate or review as many books as we can.

    "Magical"

    One of the most original and interesting story lines in years. I actually listened to the first 2 books after reading them several years ago. This story is a little slow getting started but the last 3/4 of first book and following 3 books are so good, its worth the slow character development up front.

    "Kinda slow... or too fast."
    What did you like best about this story?

    I love that there are princes and tigers. Very good!


    What about Annika Boras’s performance did you like?

    She sounded down to earth, just like Kelsey. :)


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

    Makes me laugh alot! And sad about the relationships.... I love Ren!


    Any additional comments?

    Very good book and I liked the reader, but she spoke so slowly. When I sped it up it was too fast LOL! But this book is WAY too good to worry about it. :D

    Story
    "Getting more exciting!"

    This is the second book in the Tiger's Curse series. I loved it!

    I downloaded this as an audio book, as I wanted to read it, but just didn't have time. Annika Boras again narrated the tale. I loved the way she gave each character their own voice and personality. I don't know if it's because I have gotten used to her cadence, or if she felt more comfortable with the characters, but I preferred her reading this story to Tiger's Curse. In any case, she did a fantastic job.

    Kelsey Hayes is a fantastic character. I liked her a lot. The teen angst has abated somewhat, as she has grown up quite quickly. She has been through a huge challenge to try to free Ren from his curse. She has faced danger, adventure and near death with bravery and courage. However, one of her toughest challenges lays ahead.

    The story continues with Kelsey going back to Oregon and heading to university. This story again swept me up and carried me away. I was enthralled by the descriptions of the characters and places. The author must have done a lot research into myths and legends, because they are peppered through the tale and woven into a believable story. This time Kishan, Ren's younger brother, is brought into the story. I liked Kishan. He is another great character. He is just as honourable as his brother, but he made a mistake 300 years ago, and believes that he deserves to be cursed as a tiger. However, I am now torn between the two brothers; they are both great guys. I am not usually a fan of love triangles, but the author has made it hard for me not to fall for both of these men. I also fell for Lee, Kelsey's Woo shoo teacher. He's also another great character.
    As a personal aside: Why are all fictional men so hard to resist? Do we hold a template of the ideal man in our DNA, and find real men somewhat lacking? Or are there really great guys like Ren, Kishan and Lee out there somewhere? If they are out there, why haven't I found one yet? End of aside.
    I found myself on an emotional rollercoaster ride throughout the story, and had to dab away more than one tear several times during it. The quest is just as deadly as the first one, even a bit more perhaps, and I listened with rapt attention as Kelsey and Kishan travel to Shangri-La to find "The Airy Piece". However, there is a nasty twist in this viperous tale in the form of Lokesh, Yasubai's father and the man who caused the two princes to become tigers in the first place. He is still looking for the princes' pieces of the Damon amulet. There are huge, shocking twists and turns throughout the tale, as well as near the end, and now I can't wait to get the next part of the story, Tiger's Voyage as soon as possible.

    Colleen Houck has written a fantastic YA story which is a completely action packed adventure. I love her writing style, which is fast paced and exciting without being rushed, and the flow is wonderful. I have added this author to my Favourite Author's list.

    I highly recommend this book if you love YA, Mythology, Romance or Action/Adventure genres. - Lynn Worton
