Extremely entertaining, couldn't put it down. Fell in love with the characters. Felt very connected to the story and the characters while reading, like when they were happy in the story, I was happy; when they were sad, I was sad- it's a great book that can do that to you and make you feel like you aren't just reading a story, but you feel like you are there in real life and it's all very real to you. This book has great characters, excitement, adventures, action, love, everything you need for a great read. I cannot wait to read the whole series!

The first part of the book was slow getting into but I instantly started to like it once they had gotten to India. It really started to pick up pace and was thoroughly enjoyable. However, towards the end I felt the need to strangle Kelsey the main character. She completely changed, and went from being a OK nice gal to a angsty, whinny, self-conscious, bitty who was not only annoying but mean to poor ol' Ren. I also hated that it had a 'to be continued' aspect about the ending that made me want to rip my hair out. Don't get me wrong, I liked this book and will be reading the next, I just hope she stops being stupid.

I love this book, it's better than Twilight. The characters are encaging, wonderfully witty, the scenes are vivid and the action is amazing! Either boys/men or girls/women would love this book. We follow Kelsey as she starts off by graduating High School and starting a summer job, then to India where all the action takes place. There's romance, but it's not over done. I love this book and the second, Tiger's Quest, and I am eagerly waiting for the third book, Tiger's Voyage to be released sometime this month (we hope). (Just so you know, I don't think they have the right cover for Tiger's Quest, but it's here).

Step aside all you Vampires! Enter a strong and fiercely passionate Indian prince who will sweep you off your feet and have your heart racing. Great story that will have you hooked in moments and a love story that will actually have you squealing out loud. (And yes ladies and gentlemen, he does have a brother! ;)

I loved this book. It is a great adventure but it is also a great story. I could not put this book down, it keeps you turning page after page after page. I love the main characters. Kelsey is brave and she knows what she wants. Ren is sweet, kind and all around amazing.The style of writing is very interesting. This book is filled with unexpected twists and turns that will have you very surprised. This is a really good book and i can't wait for the next book in the series to come out.

I loved this book! I couldn't put it down and kept thinking about the characters. I am an avid reader and this is by far one of my favorites. It has everything: adventure, fantasy, magic, romance and I love the Oregon references and the imagination. This series is better, IMO, then the ever so popular Twilight Series. Great for young adults: no swearing, sex or inappropriate material at all! Thanks and I'm looking forward to the rest of the series!

I LOVED this book! Tiger's Curse moved quickly from the first page to the last. It was hard to put down at night and sleep. I woke early to read more before my kids got out of bed. This was not your typical Teen romance. To me it felt more adult and something most girls have gone through and asked themselves while dating at any age. There is danger around every corner and a couple of princes to boot! I loved how the characters seemed like real ppl, very down to earth and would just tell it like it is and not beat around the bush! I found myself feeling everything the characters felt and did. You feel like you are there with them and not many books have been able to do that to me. You don't feel like an outsider looking in, you become the characters. I can not wait to see what/where our next adventure takes us and what creatures we will encounter along the way! June ca not come quickly enough! My summer reading looks to be very interesting!

This book is amazing. It's a great story, full of love adventure and magic. At first i thought it was too fast-paced but soon i realized it was necessary. India is a very interesting setting that i have never read in a YA book before. The way Houck portrayed her main characters helps the reader fall in love with them immediately. I found myself experiencing Kelsey's fear, frustration and love for Ren, something that i have never accomplished before. I was sad to reach the end and can't wait for the Tiger's Quest!

Colleen Houck puts in a little Frog Prince and the Twilight Saga mixed altogether. When I first started this book I was not able to put it down. Each chapter will leave you hanging on to your seat. I can't wait for Tiger's Quest!!!! Bring it on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have always wanted an author to write a book that took place in India. Colleen Houck you made my dreams come true and you made this book so good. Its a mix between the better Parts of The Twilight Saga and The Percy Jackson Series! The best thing is I am Hindu so I can tell what some of The Hindi words mean and you incorporated Indian Gods making it all the better! Can't wait for Tiger's Quest!!! :)

I loved this book and can't wait for the rewrite. It is incredible. For fans of Twilight I'd say you can forget that series and have a new obsession. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good story. I read it in week on my commute!

I read this book when it was a self published novel and was absolutely blown away! I could not stop reading it and devoured it in no time. With a MC that is mature and likeable, and a very desireable love interest, this book kept me reading well into the night. I highly recommend it, and have to say that it is a YA book that I would recommend to adults and young adults alike. I think Kelsey is the kind of character that I would want my daughter to admire and want to be like. If you are a fan of adventure, mystery and romance, you can't go wrong with Tiger's Curse!

Just stop saying its twilight. Twilight sucks. Tigers Curse rocks.
WhiteTigerFan More than 1 year ago
I loved this exotic romantic Indiana Jones-esque adventure! A great ride and escape! Kelsey is a good MC, not as annoying as other MCs I've read, and she does mature and develop in this novel. It's refreshing to see an author embrace tigers, rather than the usual vampires and werewolves so prevalent in YA lit. The sweet romance was also refreshing. Overall, it was well written and enjoyable. I'm definitely holding my breath for the next installment!

Tiger's Curse: AMAZING I am an avid reader and very (very) picky about my favorite books. This blew my expectations out of the water. Colleen Houck has somehow managed to set my bar (of expectations) almost impossibly high. I am constantly trying to find a series that matches Tiger's Curse- I have a feeling that it will be a long time until I find as good of a series as this!

I will be looking forward for the next book hopefully june comes soon!!!

This book was wonderful to immerse myself into. I say the general audience for this book is high school and above. There is a bit of mature content that younger aged people may find a bit graphic. I read a few sample chapter online, and I immediately loved the plot and the characters. My favorite part of this book was the relationship Ren and Kelsey shared throughout the book. Their relationship moved me so much I keep going back and re-reading parts of the book. The mystery of the book, also gives the plot an interesting twist in the novel. Overall, this book is one you have to read and I am looking forward to the other novels to release!

Think "Aladdin" meets "Indiana Jones". I loved this! I am pretty hard on books, being a Children's Bookseller. If I don't love it, I give up on it and move on to the next book I want to read. That didn't happen with "Tiger's Curse". This book has a unique premise, gripping characters and a cliffhanger that is killing me. Great teen read for girls and guys.
