I don’t know what to say. I absolutely loved Tiger’s Curse (Tiger Saga #1) and as soon as I finished, jumped right in with Tiger’s Quest. The suspense was high, the adventure captivating and exciting, and the characters easy to relate to and well developed. This sequel kept the momentum from the first book going.

I’m the type of reader who really looks for a character-driven story. I think the characters should be the most important part and in these books they are. In Tiger’s Quest, I got to look at the brother of the male protagonist of Tiger’s Curse. Kishan is very different from his brother Ren but both play an important role in Kelsey’s life. I found the contrast between the two made the story even more interesting and I couldn’t wait to see them all interacting together in book 3.

Once again, the mythology and legends of India played a crucial role in the plot. This time, Houck explored another realm of divinity, sending you deeper into India. I don’t want to say too much so you’ll have to read the book for yourself. The combination of culture and characters makes Tiger’s Quest and the series as a whole such great reads. If you love action, adventure, romance, mystery, and new takes on urban fantasy these are the books for you.
