Aside from battling immortal sea monkeys and trekking the jungles of India, she fell in love with Ren, a 300-year-old prince.
When danger suddenly forces Kelsey on another Indian quest with Ren’s bad-boy brother, Kishan, the unlikely duo begins to question their true destiny. Ren’s ...more
Yes, I realize I am in the minority of people who hate this book. B ...more
This one was sooo much better than the first (and the first was amazing), and if I had any questions or doubts or misgivings about this series, they were completely destroyed by Quest.
First off, Kishan. Most bad-boys in novels always stay aloof, and I know that they are supposed to be irritating like that, but most YA novels have crossed the line, heck, practically leaped over it, and have annoyed me soo much that I've just wanted to ...more
Take my words, Colleen Houck totally fails as an 'author', she offers us nothing bout cardboard cutout characters, empty headed heroine who seems to have no thought of her own, uninteresting and unrealistic dreamboat love interests, supporting character (Mr. Kadam) who's only there for the inform dump and being an all-knowing, all-useful plot device.
Beside all these, we also get a silly, painful-to-look-at love triangle--when one of the ...more
No, no, no.
YES! YESSSSS! Finally, YES!
NO, NO, NO, NO.
NOOOOOOOO! This cannot be happening. NOOOOOOOOOOOO! NO NO NO NO NO!
Slam the book shut.
November is WAY too far away.
(and that really is my review because saying much more would give it all away. Oh, and I'm still a bit worked up.)
This review may contain spoilers.
In spite of declaring that she's being witty or sarcastic most of what ...more
Colleen Houck is a storyteller. The writing is not perfect, but I am willing to overlook the flaws because the characters are so compelling, the romance so sizzling, and the quest so epic. Reading this book evoked ...more
The Acknowledgements page?! *squints* What?! Are we just leaving it with HEARTBREAK AND DESPAIR? Does this mean I now have to scramble around to find the next book before I die of emotions?
Yes. So off I go. ...more
*BEWARE.......SOME SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!!*
I have no idea where to begin. This sequel to the outstanding Tiger's saga, was absolutely riveting and emotional. I am still trying to wrap my brain around the events that unfolded at the end of this book!!! I can totally understand what the hype was all about for these books. They truly speak to the heart. I live Tiger's, breathe Tiger's, fantasize Tiger's.....it's crazy!! I haven't felt this way about a series since The Hunger Games and before that was ...more
After Kelsey's ridiculousness at the end of Tiger's Curse, she is now back in Oregon and attempting to live her own life. However, the specter of Ren lingers everywhere. Probably because the sod won't leave her alone. When Kelsey returns to the US, she finds that Ren has not only bought her a car, but also a gigantic house and paid her tuition for college (into a program she didn't even apply to). Kelsey basically accepts this without blinking her eyes, a ...more
then in the middle book it starts to get interesting. indiana jones like plot. and i fall for kishan. oh poor kishan.... my heart break a little for him.
then at the end of the book, again chapter after chapter after chapter about ren and kelse. i have to skip those too.
i give it 3 stars necause of kishan.
Tiger’s quest has the right dose of adventure and romance a reader needs. And admit it, it’s a combination us hopeless romantic readers can’t resist!
I think Colleen Houck succeeded in wrtiting this book. There are many different types of scenes and I was satisfied with the way they were discribed. There were romantic scenes were we could easily relate with Kelsey because we were inside her head all the time. There were thoughts, ...more
Tiger's Quest will be take you on an emotional roller coaster ride as Kelsey, Ren and Kishan's adventure continues to break th ...more
(I thought I'd take a leaf out of Jillian's book and load up with tags. I love the way her shelves are basically a miniature review before you even reach the text.)
Okay, Colleen Houck, you win. I am actually glad I read this book. There, I admit it. After the torturous struggle that was the first one, I persevered into this because I already owned it ...more
Actual rating: 3.5 stars.
'Tiger's Quest', even though more interesting than the first book, still was missing something for me to give it a full rating. I'm taking half a point because while intriguing it also had some boring moments and it didn't make me want to give my full attention. Anyway, the story was once again action-packed and full with mythology that i liked, just some of the chapters were extremely long which wasn't the best ...more
Book 2 was an improvement over the first and I am not disappointed that I read it. Kelsey did grow as a character and I liked how Kishan came into his ...more
okay, my little bouts of annoyance with Kelsey has reached the stage of constant annoyance. to make matters worse, said annoyance has unconsciously made me pinpoint all mistakes in the author's writing that otherwise, i would not have noticed. so now, i'm annoyed at Kelsey, and mildly annoyed with everyone else too!
she does a little bit of work and all the credit goes to her. what the hell does she do?! she tags along with the real heros, does small thing to help, and then returns whe
Kelsey has left ...more
In particular, when Kelsey dreams of Ren, and he calls her "wife of my heart," I had to put the book down and cry...the love expressed there is what every girl dreams of!
A few questions that will eat me alive until I can get my hands ...more
(8/11) Ah!! An ultimate cliffhanger ending!!
Kelsey is back in the states attending college and trying to forget Ren--but that's easier said than done. She ends up going on another quest (this time to the Himalayas) to try and break the curse, but since Ren is captured, she's goes with Ren's brother, Kishan.
I love absolutely loved this series!! ...more
Other books in the series
It went beyond passion, beyond desire. His kiss was full of longing, need, and love, like all those other kisses. But, it was also filled with promises and pledges, some of which seemed sweet and tender while others seemed dangerous and exciting. He was taking me over. Staking a claim.
He seized me as boldly as the tiger captured his prey. There was no escape. And I didn’t want to. I would have happily died in his clutches. I was his. And he made sure I knew it. My heart burst with a thousand beautiful blooms, all tiger lilies. And I knew with a certainty more powerful than anything I’d ever felt before that we belonged together. ”
