With three of the goddess Durga’s quests behind them, only one prophecy now stands in the way of Kelsey, Ren, and Kishan breaking the tiger’s curse. But the trio’s greatest challenge awaits them: A life-endangering pursuit in search of Durga’s final gift, the Rope of Fire, on the Andaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal. It’s a race against time–and the evil sorcerer Lokesh–in this eagerly anticipated fourth volume in the bestselling Tiger’s Curse series, which pits good against evil, tests the bonds of love and loyalty, and finally reveals the tigers’ true destinies once and for all. A smart phone tag code on the back cover links readers to the series website. From Goodreads.
Once again Colleen has written a FANTASTIC book. There wasn’t a moment that went by that I didn’t love in the book. It started off at the exact moment Tiger’s Voyage left off. Which was amazing in itself. From there, Ren and Kishan had to rescue Kelsey back since Lokesh kidnapped her.
Okay I am tryin got make this as unspoilery as possible. So there were moments that I loved and then moments that I hated. I loved that Kishan loved Kelsey so much that he was willing to make multiple sacrifices to make her sure she was happy. I also loved (at times) the relationship between Kelsey and Ren. He really wanted to show her how much he wanted her and loved her. I am still Team Kishan but I realized what was going to happen.
There was so much action in this book, from the beginning all the way to the very last page. Of course they ended up getting the last thing they needed to break the curse for Ren and Kishan. If you remember the whole prophecy Durga gave Ren and Kelsey in the first book, then you will have noticed that there were some stipulations with the end of the curse.
Yeah you find out almost everything at the end of the book and of course I was happy and mad at the same time. Of course the book ended up the way it should have, I guess, but!!!! I still miss certain characters that had to make sacrifices to make sure the curse was ended. I honestly can’t wait for Tiger’s Dream to come out sometime next year. I will be happy and sad that day only because it is the next book but it is the last book in the series.
I gave this book 6 out of 5 stars. I can’t help but love this series.
Tiger’s Voyage by Colleen Houck (The Tiger Saga #3)
With the head-to-head battle against the villainous Lokesh behind her, Kelsey confronts a new heartbreak: in the wake of his traumatic experience, her beloved Ren no longer remembers who she is. As the trio continues their quest by challenging five cunning and duplicitous dragons, Ren and Kishan once more vie for her affections–leaving Kelsey more confused than ever. From Goodreads.
I can’t get enough of Colleen’s books. I just reread this series because the 4th book just came out and I wanted to refresh my memory. Let me tell you I was way way more Team Kishan in this book because he was kind and willing to give up his own happiness to let Kelsey be happy with Ren. But the second Ren gets scared for her, he dumps her harshly.
I couldn’t stop crying throughout the book, when Ren put up hundreds of wishes for them to be together, for him to remember her, for everything I thought I was going to swoon. I get that Ren does the elaborate romantic gestures but Kishan did the little things like just being there for her when she needed him.
I still absolutely adore Phet and Kadam. Kadam with his almost all knowing self, he honestly seems to know everything about everything. At the same time he has been around for almost 400 years. And Phet, what a sweet old man who seems to love Kelsey very much.
This time around they dealt with dragons and Krakens and giant dinosaur sharks. Yea I said giant dinosaur sharks because that is the best way to describe it. I mean the thing was bigger than Jaws, based on the book. They got the Black Pearl Necklace after their quests with the mermaids and dragons.
Once again, I won’t go too much into detail because like I said, this series is definitely worth the read and you know you want to know what happens before Tiger’s Dream comes out sometime next year. This happens to be the last book of the series and makes me quite sad to see it go but I still have the books to read luckily.
The last thing 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. From Goodreads.
I can honestly say that this series of books are my absolute favorite. I can reread these books and never get bored with them (and I have read this book now 5 times!!). I just can’t get enough of the books. I felt that Kelsey was an amazing character. Throughout the book she grew as a person, you could see her falling in love and everything.
I loved that the beginning of the book we learned why Kelsey was the way she was, how she kept more to herself and preferred books to people basically. I know I usually prefer books to people as well but I like being around people as well. I thought it was really cute that she wanted Ren the tiger to be free and that she would read to him at night. You could see the relationship form even though it seemed like an impossible but it was really endearing.
Once she met with Kadam and decided to head toward India, you could see how close she was getting to Kadam and Ren. After being left behind, or so she thinks, and traversing through the jungle with Ren, she meets Phet. Who I absolutely loved, he was funny and kind and a little crazy. And she learned about the curse that was placed on the two princes of India. Actually she didn’t realize that it was both princes.
I could sit and read this book over and over again because I love it so much; I just felt that Kelsey needed to learn where her heart sat and why. I understood why she gave Ren the chance that he needed to have especially since they broke a part of the curse and he got 6 hours back of being a man instead of tiger. I am sure most would do the same thing even if it broke their heart.
I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. I am definitely going to be upset when this series ends but I am sure that Colleen will come out with something just as awesome as these books.

“I opened his closet. The last time I was here it had been empty, but now it was full of designer clothes. Most of them had never been worn. I found a blue sweatshirt that was similar to the one he’d worn to the beach. It smelled like him-waterfalls and sandalwood trees. I threw it over my arm.” page 180
