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.

I gave this book 6 out of 5 stars!!!


Of Poseidon by Anna Banks (Of Poseidon #1)

Of Poseidon by Anna Banks

Galen is the prince of the Syrena, sent to land to find a girl he’s heard can communicate with fish. Emma is on vacation at the beach. When she runs into Galen — literally, ouch! — both teens sense a connection. But it will take several encounters, including a deadly one with a shark, for Galen to be convinced of Emma’s gifts. Now, if he can only convince Emma that she holds the key to his kingdom . . .

Told from both Emma and Galen’s points of view, here is a fish-out-of-water story that sparkles with intrigue, humor, and waves of romance. From Goodreads.

I like how this story was told in both Galen and Emma’s POV. I also love how it was insta-lust but not love. They make each other tingle, which they find out because Emma is a klutz and runs right into his chest while on vacation in Florida with her best friend.

I felt bad for Emma because even though I could read Galen’s POV and knew how he felt about her, she didn’t and he had moments where he was an ass to her. Especially the student comment he passed to her or not telling her about her possibly having to mate with his brother.

While they find out what Emma is, because she is so very fair but has the right eye color. They train her but she only goes in the water while either Galen or someone else is there with her. Which leads to a lot of fighting between them, I found most of the fighting either really funny since Galen didn’t understand what she said to him or frustrating because they needed to just say how they felt.

Throughout the story there was a strange Syrian going in and out of the water by Emma’s house. I thought it was possibly someone who sensed her in the water but it ended up being a complete shock to me who it really was. I don’t want to give too much away but I really like how Galen tells Emma that he loves her no matter what happens next. Then he does something that is going to devastate her in the next book.

I can’t wait to find out what happens in the next book. It should definitely be pretty awesome.

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
