Tiger’s Curse was the first book I’ve read for 2012 that has this magical and powerful sense that caught my read-it taste!

The course of love of Dhiren and Kelly was perfectly built. You could see that Colleen did not make their love like in a spur-of-the-moment. They started to know each other though in a different way, but manage to discover the feelings they soon feel with each other. Dhiren is intelligent, graceful for a guy and (of course) a handsome prince, he may not be that different with other guy you could read in other books but there’s something to him that will certainly caught every attention of readers. I love all the characters in this story, Kelly and Khisan, the brother of Dhiren who’s also cursed. Though there wasn’t much of Khisan in the story the persona that Colleen gave to him was enough to adore him.

One of the things I love other than the characters in this story is the settings. The spot where the whole story mostly encircles was beautiful and astonishing. I definitely see my self sightseeing with Dhiren and Kelly in India while reading this book. Colleen Houck made her description of the places in India comprehensive yet not in a tedious way; it’s like your having a mini tour around India. I love Colleen for working pungent, that in every stroke of pen she does leaves a magical effect that’ll touch every readers and emotionally engrossing parts that always kept me on the edge of my seat.

I enjoyed every bit of moment I have with this book and as much as I want to start the second book I heard that the other books in the series has not yet been published so I think I have to wait for this series to complete first and I’ll start my Tiger’s Curse expedition again!



  1. My teen daughter just finished reading (and really enjoyed!) an eBook called Hear by Jacqueline Abelson. Great plot, interesting characters and a real message of self– empowerment. Here’s the link:
