Tiger’s Quest by Colleen Houck (Tiger’s Saga #2)
Back in Oregon, Kelsey tries to pick up the pieces of her life and push aside her feelings for Ren. But danger lurks around the corner, forcing her to return to India where she embarks on a second quest–this time with Ren’s dark, bad-boy brother Kishan, who has also fallen prey to the Tiger’s Curse. Fraught with danger, spellbinding dreams, and choices of the heart, TIGER’S QUEST brings the trio one step closer to breaking the spell that binds them. From Goodreads.
This is the second book in the series by Colleen Houck and it definitely didn’t disappoint me. It starts with Kelsey heading back to Oregon with Nilima. Once there she finds out that she has been compensated extremely well by whom she thinks is Mr. Kadam, of course she eventually finds out that it was Ren who bought the house, set up school and everything for her. Which was great and all but she was a little upset about all the things that he bought for her.
She tried so hard to move on in her life, I felt like she didn’t want to mope around because she wasn’t with Ren. So she started dating, of course her first date wasn’t exactly planned. He kind of just told her it was a date. Out of the three guys that she dated, I really like Li. He was such a sweetheart. Too bad her heart was already given away. Luckily Ren came to Oregon for Christmas.
I loved that he made her date not only him but Li and Jason. I also loved that he left notes about how much he loved her. I was surprised she lasted as long as she did without breaking up with the other 2 boys. Eventually she realized what a mistake she was making. This all happened in the beginning of the book. Kishan is asked to come to protect Kelsey with Ren because a picture got out with her name on it just in case Lokesh finds out where she is.
Now I know almost everyone is a Ren fan and want him and Kelsey to be together but honestly, I think I am a Kishan fan. Not only was he willing to do anything to make her happy, he would have gladly swapped positions with Ren to keep her happy. Not many guys would be willing to go through torture to keep a girl happy with another guy. So if you have read this book you know that Ren got taken by Lokesh and it about broke Kelsey.
When back in India they decided to look for the next gift from Durga to help break the curse but also to find out where Ren could possibly be. This time Kishan and Kelsey go through with it. They end up having to climb part of Mount Everest! At least she can say she climbed a portion of it before she dies. She is attacked by a bear and is dying when they find the Spirit Gate and end up in a paradise. There they meet up with tree nymphs and Kishan sees not only the future but also something with Kelsey that makes him beyond happy.
They end up going through a lot of really hard “houses” to get the scarf. Once they go through the Iron birds and are safe, Kelsey dreams of Ren and tell him to do whatever he has too to stay alive and he does. Of course she doesn’t know what that entails, she doesn’t realize the consequences.
Now I am not going to tell you much more than what I have because I definitely recommend that you read this series, it is my favorite like I have said before. This was a great read. There was action, adventure, love, heartbreak, torture, and secrets.
I gave this book 6 out of 5 stars!
