Series: Alaskan Tigers Book 1
Note: Book 1, not a standalone book, does end as a cliff hanger
Author: Marissa Dobson
This is my review of Tiger Time. I got this first book in the series free through its normal set price. This is the beginning of a great set. Be warned though you will not want to stop with just this one book and I now have all the rest on my TBR list.
Tabitha Leigh is an ex foster kid who is trying to eek out a living. With a crappy apartment, crappy job, and only one friend she is not happy. She feels the yearning of the cold, of Alaska, a place she has never been. She has been sick, exhausted and running a major fever for a long time and nothing helps.
Ty Renolds, the Alpha of the Alaskan Tigers has been watching over Tabitha. As a half breed they are not sure if, or when, she will transform but it is vital that if she does he is there. If Tabby finds her tiger she will be one of the most powerful tiger shifters out there, descended from royalty, a Queen, and his life mate. People want to kill her because of who and what she is. Ty has to help her through the change and back to her people in Alaska where they can begin to explain the mystery of who she is and how she will work on uniting all of the tigers together.
I highly enjoyed this book because i don't always get to see a lot of tiger shifter books. We get to see Ty and other tigers change in this book, as well as a wolf, but we don't get to see Tabitha go through her change but we know it is coming. I can't wait to see if she is the color they expect her to be. This was a pretty short book in my opinion but it does well to get you hooked into the series and that's what a free starter book is supposed to do. The writing could have dealt with more edits, a cliffhanger warning, as well as a bit more storyline on how a foster kid suddenly was able to act like a queen.
Ty, as an alpha male, was strong, demanding, and always in charge. But he was just too much. I wanted to see more of his softer side, of his nurturing side. It seemed like too much time was taken showing that he was a tough as nails leader that got stuff done. While Tabitha did stand up to his take charge nature (which was a relief), I wanted to see him take advice, be wrong, or work with more of a team to round his character out a little more.
The suspense and danger in Tiger Time seemed a little forced. There was no way to keep Tabitha safe, the bad guys knew what was going on (until the breaking moment) and were always one step ahead. It just didnt' seem too believable. I also didn't fully understand why they wanted her dead. The reason was given, it just didn't seem like a reasonable one - but we are dealing with crazy people, so maybe I shouldn't have been surprised.
As a series, I had expected to have some more resolution to the story than I did. While some things are wrapped up, there's a lot left hanging to pull you into the next book.
This is a 2.5 rounded up because it wasn't awful, it simply feels like it felt like the over dramatized fantasies of a teen.
Ms. Dobson's first book in the Alaskan Tigers series is a winner. The characters are engaging and entertaining. Tabby has a big heart and really does want to be liked. Ty's the man to do it. But the secondary characters steal the book. From Alice to the mysterious Mike, from Connor who has more going on than first appears to Felix, I am dying to read more. I am ready to move to Alaska.
Grab this shifter book today and be ready for a wild ride. You will want to read the next in the series!
