Title: Tiger's Curse
Author: Colleen Houck
Book: (The Tiger Saga, #1)
This is the book that got me reading again! I was in B&N with my mom, since I wasn't really interested in anything but mystery at that time, when I saw the cover of the book. It was mesmerizing! I've always loved cats! Tigers in particular! Anyway I read the jacket and begged my mom to buy it! She was concerned about witchcraft but once one of the people working there told her it was safe she finally gave in. I'm so happy she did because up till then I hated books! She found out that day that I love reading just as much as she does!
Kelsey lives with her foster parents Mike and Sarah (generic right?) and she is looking for a summer job to help her save money for college. Well she gets a job at the circus where she takes care of the animals and helps clean up. That's where she meets Dhiren a white tiger with deep blue eyes. She feels connected to him in a way she can't understand and spends all the time she can spare with him.
Dhiren, or Ren as he likes to be called, is a tiger but he wasn't always a tiger. Nope! He is an 300 year old Indian Prince who was turned into a tiger by an evil man who wants something from him. In human form he is just 21! In tiger form he gets Kelsey to follow him back to India with some help from a man who is a much older than Ren. He is called Anik Kadam, or Mr. Kadam. (sorry if I spelled it wrong!)
Once Kelsey finds out the truth from Ren (who is only able to turn into a human for a short amount of time) she vows to do everything in her power to free Ren and his brother Kishan from the curse.
Though Kishan will not help them she and Ren are not giving up and together they face the first of four tasks they will have to complete. The first being the Golden Fruit!
Towards the end of the book Kelsey never ceases to annoy me! She is in love with Ren and he with her! What's her problem?! I was screaming at her that I would take him if she didn't! XD
This book will have you wishing that these things were real (except for Kelsey who is more annoying in the next three books) and keep you on edge till the final book! I promise you if you make it through the other books you will NOT regret it!
