The story brings another impossible task to the table as it continues with Kelsey's, Ren's, and Kishan's struggle to break the curse that turns the men into beasts. This book began pretty slow, revolving mostly around the personal turmoil between Kelsey, Ren, and Kishan and briefly touching on their preparations to overcome the "dragons." The story seems to be moving its focus from breaking the curse to centralizing on Kelsey's choice between Ren and Kishan. The entire book is filled with this back-and-forth drama as Kelsey continuously denies her true heart.
***Brief Vent*** Kelsey is so unbelievably ridiculous in justifying her decision that I wish I could physically slap her selfish face. She is so hypocritical, acting in the exact same way that she says she despises. I do love, however, how Ren calls her out on her choices and behavior. I'm glad I'm not the only one who sees her childishness, and I hope Ren can one day help her to grow up. ***
The writing style which had drastically improved in the second book unfortunately digressed back to the style of the first book. It was difficult to read sometimes and I'd find myself skimming over paragraphs describing in intricate detail what the group had decided to eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks in between.Read more ›
Tiger's Voyage opens with Ren rescued but suffering from soap opera-worthy ailments: amnesia about his love for Kelsey and having her touch cause him physical pain. Sooo, for the first third of the book we get an annoying back-and-forth of Kelsey and Ren alternatively pining or trying to make the other jealous. Then, FINALLY, we get to the fighting, curse breaking, and dragons.
I keep wishing that the only other female in the series, Nilima, would get to be a full character with more than two lines per book. She's supposedly super beautiful but hasn't held either Ren or Kishan's attention. She could pull an older sister role and tell Kelsey to stop being an idiot and be brave enough to commit to loving Ren. But no. Nilima doesn't get an interesting role. The only real thing she gets to do, for no apparent reason, is to literally fast on behalf of Kelsey's love life.
If only her sacrifice would make the excessive drama stop.
Tiger's Voyage sure has a truckload of drama and tension. But romance? Eh, not so much. Book one dripped with Ren's devoted first love and book two smoldered with Kishan's temptation. Sadly, Kishan loses his bad-boy, sexy, teasing self in book three and becomes Kelsey's quiet, jealous, boring fallback boyfriend. The poor guy is whipped in the worst way.
Sure, Ren pulls some awesome romance while he has amnesia and he does have some swoon-worthy lines after he recovers, but I wasn't big on him switching between hot and cold with Kelsey. Not that her choices help the matter.Read more ›
As is often the case with series, some installments are better than others. This third book in Houck's best-selling Tiger's Curse series is, in many ways, the most enjoyable yet. The characters have already been firmly established and Houck has done an excellent job of acquainting the reader with the setting and ins and outs of the often complicated journey of Kelsey, Ren and Kishan. Although the next phase of the quest to break the centuries long curse is even more elaborate than in the previous two novels, it is also more original and entertaining. The love-triangle between Kelsey and the two princes is really at the forefront of the storyline, and Houck does a good job of creating a growing sense of tension throughout the novel. Coping with Ren's memory loss was an excellent way to keep the romance between Ren and Kelsey interesting. Houck also introduces other characters that compete with Kelsey for Ren's affections and vice versa, adding another layer to the thickening plot.Read more ›
