When she learns she alone can break the Tiger's curse, Kelsey's life is turned upside-down. The unlikely duo journeys halfway around the world to piece together an Indian prophecy, find a way to free the man trapped by a centuries-old spell, and discover the path to their true destiny.

Kelsey Hayes’s eighteenth summer was crazy. The kind of crazy that nobody would ever believe. 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 life hangs in the balance — and so does the truth within Kelsey’s heart. Tiger’s Quest, the thrilling second volume in the Tiger’s Curse series, brings the trio one step closer to breaking the ancient prophecy that binds them.



Both of these audiobooks were amazing! The reader was sensational, she is the best I've heard since listening to Jim Dale (Harry Potter Series). Now don't get me wrong... she's no Jim Dale. Jim Dale is in a league of his own. But the brilliant Annika Boras did each voice flawlessly and each character had a distinctive sound. She spoke in an American accent for Kelsey, Asian accent for Li, and an Hindi/Indian accent for Ren, Kishan and Mr. Kidam. I enjoyed these audiobooks so much, I listened to them all through the house. I would also love to read the books and I've tried (same with Harry Potter) but I always go back to the audio. It is so much more exciting, you really feel as though you are there, in the story. Most of the time, I prefer the books over audio, occasionally (as with this case) I get lucky and it puts a big grin on my face ;)

The story/plot is also wonderful and so imaginative. It is full of drama, excitement and fun. Both books are amazing, each in their own way. I loved Kelsey, Ren, Kishan and even Mr. Kidam. The love triangle in this series is one of the best in my opinion... I have yet to read the last in the series, Tiger's Voyage. I am still torn on which man tiger brother I would choose, they are both pretty darn perfect (romantic, protective, gorgeous and a Prince).

I am headed to the bookstore as soon as I am done with this review to get the final installment of this series. I can't wait to finish it, so more review of The Tiger's Curse series to come! In the meantime grab the audio, it will put a smile on your face also!!

  2. The first book is on the bargains shelf on Amazon so I ordered it. I read a part of it somewhere and it sounded so good. Now I'm going to be dying for the other two I think! Thanks for reviewing this right now. I was hoping I hadn't wasted my money.
