Review for Tiger's Curse by Colleen Houck

Tiger's Curse (The Tiger Saga, #1)
The last thing teenager Kelsey Hayes thought she'd be doing over the summer was meeting Ren, a mysterious white tiger and cursed Indian prince When she learns she alone can break the Tiger's curse, Kelsey's life is turned upside-down. The unlikely duo journeys halfway around the world to piece together an Indian prophecy, find a way to free the man trapped by a centuries-old spell, and discover the path to their true destiny.

My short, simple review

3.5 out of 5

I struggled with this book a bit. I loved the idea of the story, but I just couldn't get into it. The characters were two dimensional. They didn't really become concrete to me until the last two chapters of the book. I spent most of the book, especially at the end, frustrated with Kelsey. At one point I wanted to reach in the book and shake her! Her self esteem issues started to get on my nerves. Oh, I wanted so badly to swoon over Ren and his gorgeous eyes. I could never get an image of him in my mind. I loved reading about the Indian culture and folk lore. The scenery was well scripted and easy to imagine. So, I am going to stick with this series and to see it to the end. I hope to find more to sink my teeth in to in the next book.

  1. Hmmm... Well, the culture aspect sounds good, but the lack of character development makes me want to stay away. I hope you enjoy the next book much better.
