But in my opinion, I'd rather wait for an amazing book than have a rushed, disappointing book to end the series. It takes a lot to write a story, let alone a book, and there's often more to it than you think. I understand the thrill of wanting it out, I really do, but we all have to try and be patient, haha!(less)

Holy tiger! The name for the last book is here! I knew what the fourth one would be 'Tiger's Destiny' and I made a game trying to guess the last name for the fifth one. I guessed 'Tiger's Battle, Tiger's Love, Tiger's Life' and so on. Well, I guessed wrong! Tiger's Dream is better than all my guessed names.

UPDATE: I just finished reading 'Tiger's Destiny' and am wondering how in the hell Colleen is making a fifth book to this series. Seriously, everything is wrapped up in the fourth book. How could sh

Ok, I'm not sure what this will be about, because the fourth book had a definite series ending feel. All loose ends tied up. Happy ending for everyone. So here are my thoughts for what the 5th book might be:

1) A telling of the story from Ren's perspective. This would be cool, because I LOVED the part of Midnight Sun that Stephanie Meyer wrote. I read the Twilight series because of Edward (I ended up not particularly liking Bella and HATED Jacob). So this would be cool. His dream came
Oct 02, 2012 rated it it was amazing
I really wish people would read the fourth book before posting reviews on the fifth. All this nonsense about 'IT BETTER BE REN' could be completely avoided if readers would simply learn to not jump the gun.

That being said, I'm very intrigued as to what this book could be about. Tiger's Destiny ended on such a fabulous note that I can't imagine why in the world another addition would be needed. BUT!! It is an opportunity (wishful thinking or not) to read more about Ren and Kelsey. Erg

Remember in the second book when Kishan and Kelsey sleep in the Grove of Dreams, and Kishan has the vision of himself seeing Kelsey and the baby?
(That means Kishan does meet them again.)

Then later, in the fourth book, in the epilogue, Kelsey and Ren read the letter from Kishan, and towards the end of the letter he writes, 'I have glimpsed what is to come. Forgive my interference, but it was something I needed to do' then he writes, 'Perhaps in another time and another place we

Since I wrote this one, I won't review it except to say I have never, ever cried while writing a book like I did with this one. It's an emotional roller-coaster from beginning to end.

I'm almost too excited to read Tiger's Dream!!!! I'm just afraid that with Tiger's Destiny having such a semi-Happy Ending that this one might not, T~T I hope it ends well I LOVE a HEA ;)
If not, than I'm gonna consider this (book 4) the ending of the series :)
(Kinda like for people who didn't want to continue the Mortal Instruments books after the 3rd one, you could feasibly end it there and be perfectly happy. I couldn't, but others could lol)

This book was so hard to read. It was absolute perfection and absolutely unnecessary at the same time. 😂

I always loved Kishan and his happiness was so important to me that I could only read this in fits and starts. While reading the series I was never really sure what I wanted to happen. Kelsey was never quite good enough for Kishan. She didn't love him properly, always thinking of his brother while they were together which really rubbed me the wrong way. But I wanted Kishan to be ha

It better be ren. sometimes an author wants to surprise the reader so they give them something they don't expect and then the reader gets surprised but they also get disappointed and they finish the book with a bad feeling and it would have been an awesome book but it had a horrible ending. so advice to the author: it's ok if the reader expected the ending just as long as they end off with a good feeling and are happy. A good romance makes me happy. I will NOT be happy if kelsy ends up with kish ...more

don't understand how there can be another novel after reading the fourth book. Whats there to write about, the fourth should have been the last :S

As I did with Voyage, I will post interesting Tiger's related stuff for you guyes.

*1st Book Cover Thoughts for Tiger's Dream

So what do we think will be on the cover of the next book? Will it be a prequel told from Ren and Kishan's point of view - will it be told from before they were cursed?

Or do we think that the next novel will be from Durga's point of view, especially after hguyes.
Wow, nearly a 6 year gap between the releases of books 4 and 5, I'd actually given up hope of this book ever being released! To be honest it's been SUCH a long time I've pretty much forgotten everything about the series so I hope the author has included a recap or I'm going to be totally lost LOL.

I swear is this is the book on Kelsey's pregnancy I'm going to beat someone.
Why is Houck dragging this into a 5th book? What else could possibly happen? Oh God. Please, no time travel. It makes me so mad. Authors do it to fix things they didn't like in the previous book. This series should have ended with the first book. Like, HELLO! SHE GOT MARRIED! HOUCK CLEAED EVERYTHING UP AND TIED UP ALL THE LOSE ENDS!

I just don't understand. I

I just finished reading this book. After years of waiting I didn’t know what to expect. Even thought the beginning of the book was so full of unnecessary drama and Kishan whining over Kelsey, I must say the end of the saga was perfect and better than I was expecting.

I’m giving it three stars because the whole Kelsey, Kishan and Ana drama. I felt it was too much at one point, and I was reaching my limit but the end was so full of love, understanding, that filled my heart with warmth and I must s

I am desperately hoping that Colleen Houck won't pull a "Cassandra Clare" and ruin her perfectly awesome Tiger saga with a money-digging book that drags on the series. I love the Tiger saga, don't get me wrong, but I think that Tiger's Destiny already wrapped up everything with Kelsey's relationships and all. Seriously, how is Collen Houck going to pull off a whole other book?

Can this book just be out already!? Ugh, the wait is killing me!

Tiger’s Dream is not what I expected but still worth the read. Stranded in a time and place he never wanted, Kishan must carry out his destiny by helping the goddess Durga. However the task does not come easy as he must face the truth about the girl he loves and the brother who won her heart. When the shaman Phet arrives and informs Kishan that Kelsey needs him, Kishan races to save her only to discover that the curse they all thought was over was only the beginning.

Sometime back in 2012 when I was just a fetus with a very different mindset: Err...what???

There's a 5th book??? And I came to know this now??!? *Facepalm*

I thought Tiger's Destiny was it, it sure had a definite ending to it, what more is left? Is Kishan coming back dumping Durga(or Anamika whatever)??? Please do that, Kishan, please? I hated him being left with that lady, but is he going to come back to the whole Kelsey-Ren-Kishan triangle again??? What the hell?!!

Waiting...waiting...the freaking world better not end in 2012!!!

I don't care that all the loose strings were tied up in Tigers Destiny, I just can't get enough of Ren and Kelsey. I loved all the books and I think Tigers Dream is going to be an extended epilogue. I just hope Colleen doesn't mess up the entire series by battling to fulfill a number of books requirement. I don't want it to be a what-if book but I do want to know more about whether they see Mr. Kadam.... Ren and Kelsey are amazing but I don't want them to become a Fairytale couple or a tragedy i ...more

I have loved this series so much and although Kishan didn't get his happily ever after, I felt like the story was complete. I can't say how excited I was for Kishan to hopefully find his happy, but I was a little surprised about the process it took to get there.

I loved getting to know the goddess Durga better. Also known as Anamika (or Ana or Mika), her story is fascinating, heart breaking, and gripping and learning of her past really helped me grow to adore her on a more human level

What a waste of a such a lovely story , i wish the character's had been flushed out a little more, and the heroine was stronger, the story line was truly phenomenal but completely ruined with the most annoying heroine ever. It was almost like half way through the author herself got bored with it, jeez this heroine makes me want to apologize for being a women.Such a waste of such a beautiful story line.

Release date of 2015?!?! Is this like a repeat of George R.R. Martin...vague release dates for a year or two and then BAM! Release date in two more
This is a fantastic series...I'm just venting. But the first three books were released in 2011, the fourth in 2012. I wonder why the long wait for the last book. Or is it the last book? Please tell me it's not a case of the publisher begging for more of an already finished series. Anyone?


Off topic, but I still want to say this: "Mana-sama always looks fabulous."

As you probably know, I was such a big Kishan and Kelsey shipper when I read the book series and reading this book going through Kishan's heartbreak made me sob. For 75% of this book I was in tears.
I'm so glad Kishan has found someone knew but she will never be Kelsey for him and THE TEARS HAVE STARTED AGAIN.
