Tiger's Quest by Colleen Houck

Saturday, August 20, 2011
Back in Oregon, Kelsey tries to pick up the pieces of her life and push aside her feelings for Ren. But danger lurks around the corner, forcing her to return to India where she embarks on a second quest-this time with Ren's dark, bad-boy brother Kishan, who has also fallen prey to the Tiger's Curse. Fraught with danger, spellbinding dreams, and choices of the heart, TIGER'S QUEST brings the trio one step closer to breaking the spell that binds them.

Goodreads Summary

This is the second in an epic series.  Kelsey is slightly to very depressed in the first half of the book due to being away from her tiger prince, Ren.  Kelsey receives both a fully furnished house, school payments, and a car from the wealthy prince.  She goes through the motions, even going so far as to date three different guys in the hopes of getting over Ren, to no avail.  Ren finally cannot stand to be away from her any longer and buys a house near Kelsey's. 

The action really begins after Ren lives by Kelsey and can't seem to stay away from her.  He encourages her to date...of course, he knows she will choose him in the end, but he wants to give her a choice.  However, Ren and Kelsey are not safe.  They are attacked by an evil bunch from which Kelsey barely escapes from and Ren is captured. 

Once again, in India, Kelsey is despondent.  Ren's trickster brother attempts to comfort him, but Kelsey remains sad.  Eventually, in an attempt to save Ren, Kelsey and Ren's brother embark on a fantastical adventure involving fairies, ravens, and mysterious, magical objects.  The ending will leave the reader on a cliff-hanger.

This book was no less impressive than the first.  The characters are still fun to read about and the dynamic between them-especially the developing love triangle between Ren, Kelsey, and Ren's brother-is very intriguing.  The author writes very descriptively, the reader will be able to imagine the scenery and the characters.  This book is recommended to teens/young adults who enjoy fantasy and romance.

    Wow, you sound so matter of fact about it. I was pulling my hair out at the end. I was so worked up I couldn't even write a decent review. :) I'm glad somebody could though because the book deserves a good review.
