This review contains unmarked spoilers.

If you didn't know before, I used to be very in love with this series before I started getting into other young adult novels. I still enjoy the two first books in the Tiger's Curse series, but after that I started to hate them.

*purses lips*

Let's face it: everyone knew who Kelsey would end up with. If you actually thought that Colleen would try something different, you're wrong, and deep down you knew it. You could hope all you want, but authors rarely take

EVEN THOUGH I HAVEN'T READ THIS BOOK I KNOW I WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED IN MRS. HOUCK:) Why couldn't they publish all the books at the same time, THERE IS AN IDEA. Am I right, please someone say yes. Teheheheeeeeeee.

Similar Books: None that I can think of - this series is something very different than what else is out there in the market.

Real Rating: 3 1/2 stars

This is a hard review for me to write, y'all. I LOVED the first two books in this series. They were like nothing else I'd read, and I couldn't get enough. I loved that Colleen Houck was writing about something you don't see much in YA - Eastern mythology - but even the wicked mythology couldn't save this one for me, unfortunately.

First, let's talk ab

Rating: Actually it should be a negative-20 stars, but Goodread wouldn't allow this rating so I made do with one star. It's easily one of the worst books I've ever read in my life.

Warning: F-words flying from all directions, don't like don't read.

Hello, Colleen Houck.

I'd decided to skip those 'dear this' and 'dear that' because to be frank, I have no respect toward you as an 'author' and I don't really think you deserve to be called one. Still for the sake of bo

Sorry for all the profanity and spoilers you will read from now on!

That being said...

I am sitting here wondering why the fuck did Colleen Houck do something like this to me and to all the fans of this series.
Tiger Saga was one of my favourite series. Ever. And now the calamity that is this book happened and I know things will never be the same.

I tell you, never in my life have I cursed so much as while I was reading Tiger's Destiny!--'

That can't be right, it says it only has 250 pages?!?! That's insane! Tiger's Voyage had over 500, this one has HALF of that! :O

UPDATE: No. Fucking Way. They bumped up the release date to September. September.

UPDATE: Okay, now it says 400. Still pretty short compared to Tiger's Voyage but I'll take it.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Cover reveal! Okay, well, not really. But it's gonna be green! It tells us that much.

Tiger's Destiny has the same flaws that Tiger's Voyage did. Reading Destiny just made me feel like I was reading Voyage all over again and that really does suck. When this series started with Curse, I was in love, the first novel was AMAZING!! I loved loved loved it and the second novel Quest was just as good, but from there everything went downhill.

There is only so long that readers can read the same thing continuously, there is only so long before the same love triangle ge

Ok.

*takes a deep breath and squares shoulders*. I can do this.

I'm going to start off by reminding myself - and all of you - of a few key important facts:

1. This books isn't factual
2. Hence magic tigers-turned-man don't exist
3. Hence Ren and Kishan don't exist
4. Hence my life is meaningless fine and I will move on. And survive.
5. My reasoning above is absolute poppycock and I AM SO EMOTIONAL DISTRAUGHT RIGHT NOW!! Uh, well...I can't think of another point.

So, anyways, this is my way of saying tha

I've seriously enjoyed this series. It's been a nice change from Greek mythology and vampire novels :) Yes, it's another teenage angst drama but the incorporation of Indian mythology sets it apart.

Warning: There will be spoilers, angry ranting, and profanity in this review. If you are not comfortable with any of these, and loved the book down to every single word, I highly suggest you don't read my review.

I can't even begin to describe how much I hated this book. It hurts me to say this because I loved the first two book, but this book was just a complete disaster from start to finish. I actually threw the book several times, and screamed at Kelsey- who was the problem ninety-nine perce

Um, okay. Oh. My. God.

WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?

I mean seriously. Was it just me, or did everyone feel like banging their heads against the wall at the STUPIDITY and PURE DUMBNESS of the lead character?

Kelsey Hayes killed me in this book. Her weakness and brainlessness just tortured me to death.

To be honest, this book actually had POTENTIAL if it didn't have such a whiny, stupid heroine. And the worst part is that said heroine was the NARRATOR.

I couldn't stand Kelsey in this book. The way she float

This book was very good. Houck continued this great series and this one seemed to be a little less than I expected it to be.

Plot Summary

Kelsey, Ren, and Kishan are still trying to break their curse and the end seems to be getting near. Seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, they set off to find the fourth gift being the Rope of Fire. They go through time to accomplish what needs to get done and defeat the evil Lokesh. The trio cross paths with magical or mythological creatures. There are m

Well, this is the first time that I’m not gushing about my love for one of Colleen’s books. It feels so wrong to not love Tiger’s Destiny. But for certain reasons, I couldn’t. This is really weird for me to say this, because I’m one of the biggest fans of this series. The first three books I loved wholeheartedly, I couldn’t get enough of them. They left me breathless and excited. And I was so flipping excited for Tiger’s Destiny. But, to tell you the truth, I was actually worried that I wouldn’t ...more

phew! finally the soap opera love triangle ended. what a relief.

aside from that, i enjoy this book. the myth and the twist towards the end os very interesting although there is so many loopholes. but its ok. i take it.

wait!! there is still book 5?? oh no! i hope no more love triangle again this time.

I... I can't. I can't even begin to fathom how utterly stupid this book is. Where do I even begin?

A couple things before anything else (Warning: angry rant ahead):
1. WHEN YOU WRITE A BOOK INVOLVING MYTHOLOGY AND/OR FOREIGN CULTURES, PLEASE DO ACTUAL RESEARCH. DO SOME HOMEWORK.

2. DON'T MAKE YOUR HEROINE AN IGNORANT WHITE GIRL WHO BARELY DOES ANY RESEARCH. THIS IS INCREDIBLY OFFENSIVE. (More on Kelsey below.)

For the love of enchiladas, hold on to your false teeth, this book is one hell of a ride! Titled as my most anticipated read for 2012, Tiger's Destiny is out of this world! Literally.

Oh my watermelons, I don't know what to say. All these thoughts are just swirling around in my head, preventing me from doing anything but sitting here looking dumb...er than usual.

Let’s just put it this way, if all the other books in the Tiger series are farts (and they are) would smell so bad it would probably be consider a weapon of mass destruction or at the very least get whatever building it was let in condemned.It’s that bad.

I feel like I’ve read this book already, only last time it was called Tiger’s Voyage. Whether it’s the quest into another fantastical realm, the villain who only pops up at the beginning and the end, or the triangle that’s already been stretched out for way too long, it seems to me like the Tiger’s Curse series has fallen into a certain formula - and it’s getting stale. And with Tiger’s Dream on the way early next year, I’m not even sure if the ending, which seems pretty final to me, will stick. ...more

Cool? You are a devastatingly beautiful angel of death. If death came for me and it looked like you, I'd go willingly.
