With three of the goddess Durga's quests behind them, only one prophecy now stands in the way of Kelsey, Ren, and Kishan breaking the tiger's curse. But the trio's greatest challenge awaits them: A life-endangering pursuit in search of Durga's final gift, the Rope of Fire, on the Andaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal.

It's a race against time--and the evil sorcerer Lokesh--in this eagerly anticipated fourth volume in the bestselling Tiger's Curse series, which pits good against evil, tests the bonds of love and loyalty, and finally reveals the tigers' true destinies once and for all.

I absolutely had no doubt, in my mind, that Tiger's Destiny was going to be amazing. Book four of The Tiger's Curse Series was perfect in my opinion. I'm always comparing this series to The Harry Potter series, that is how good it is. I do not say that lightly, other than HP, I don't think I've ever enjoyed a series as much as this one. Colleen Houck is pure genius, with a perfect mix of adventure, romance, and on-the-edge-of-your-seat suspense... This series will still be loved by many, years from now.

Tiger's Destiny had a lot to offer, Houck does a great job tying up all the loose ends. Kelsey, Ren, Kishan, Mr. Kadam, Nilima, and the nasty Lokesh are all back for this final installment. I was very nervous, to say the least, about how this series would end. I cannot say anything, which is really hard right now, because I'm about to burst. I loved how it ended, so very bittersweet. I don't think I've cried as much while reading. Ever!

Ren, Kishan, and Kelsey go on more adventures to break the tiger's curse. They each come very close to death many times. The three meet extremely difficult challenges. They are tested in every way possible. When it comes to romance... *sigh*flutters eyelashes*... perfection in every way.

Please start this series. I have heard it compared to Indiana Jones, I would agree. The Tiger's Curse series is a whole lot of fun. The audio books are amazing as well. I have enjoyed the audio as much as Jim Dale reading HP.

    Now a day we can find stories on the go. Some of them are real based on the Ramayana and some are manipulated. Some of our young adults want to know the culture and understand
