Kelsey has been through it all over the last four months. She found out that not everything is what it seems. She has gone through a lot of dangerous things all to break a curse on two Indian princes. She also fell in love with one, but she pushed him away because there was no way that he could love her especially when he had been stuck as a tiger for so long. However, it’s hard to leave him and when she gets back home to Oregon she comes to realize that it’s even harder to forget him and move on.
Luckily for her, she doesn’t have to spend too much time doing so, because Ren isn’t going to let her go that easily, and on Christmas Day he shows up at her door to win her back. And it doesn’t end there. Soon, Kishan also appears because it turns out the man who cursed them all those years ago, knows what the trio is doing and is after Kelsey. No one around her is safe. Not even Ren. But she can’t dwell on it too much because there is another sacrifice to find. Which means another journey, only this time Kishan is the tiger at her side…
I was so desperate to read this book, that before I even finished book 1 I checked it out from the digital library – which is usually something I don’t do. After the way Tiger’s Curse ended, I needed to know what happened next as soon as possible. There was no way that Kelsey was going to be Ren free for long and I turned and devoured pages until he showed back up on the scene. Talk about the best Christmas present ever. Like the first book, this book has a lot of adventure and again I’m going to make a reference to the Indiana Jones movies. Only instead of boulders going after our heroes it’s mythical creatures.
I have a few complaints about this book though. First the whole potential love triangle thing that I was sensing in the last book between Kelsey/Ren/Kishan finally came to fruition. With Ren being kidnapped by the enemy, Kishan was the tiger that came with her to retrieve the second sacrifice and just like with the first one, the journey brought the two closer. And you know what? I’m not quite sure how I feel about it. Odd, huh? Usually I pick my favorite out of the trio early on, but this one….I don’t know. Especially because of complaint number two. When Ren is finally rescued, he doesn’t have any memory of Kelsey and doesn’t feel the same way for her as he used to. Kelsey and company believe it was Lokesh’s doing, but I think otherwise. I think it might have something to do with the goddess Druga and her promise to Kelsey to look after Ren. Anyway, it annoys me but at the same time, it kind of makes room for the whole Kishan and Kelsey thing to happen… ARGH.
Final Rating: 5 out of 5 stars. Remind me to thank the coach at work who recommended this to me. Good thing both book 3 and 4 are already available. Especially with the teaser that was at the end of Quest for Tiger’s Voyage. Excuse me while I go hit a wall.
Bookshelf worthy? You have the golden fruit which can create any food you request of it and you have the scarf which can create anything made of fabric you request. Can the next sacrifice be a bookshelf that has never-ending room?
