Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck

Read by: Anna/Copley Teen Room

 I couldn’t have read this book at a better time: Colleen Houck is coming to the Copley Teen Room on Saturday November 5th at 3pm!!!

I LOVED this book. If you like fantasy/shifter type novels, especially if they involve hot guys and a little romance, this is the book for you. It’s the story of a girl in foster care who gets the opportunity to accompany a circus tiger inAmericato a special reserve inIndiawhere the tiger was supposedly born before being captured. But upon arriving inIndia, Kelsey realizes that the story she was told was anything but the truth, and the tiger, is anything but your typical circus tiger! Together, she and the centuries old tiger must go on a quest to end the curse put on Ren, the tiger. They battle plants that eat you alive, statues that come to life, a fear of snakes, a fear of love, and other things that are sure to keep you on the edge of your seat.

 The page numbers are daunting at 400, but I couldn’t put the book down as soon as I’d started, and I finished it a lot faster than I’d ever predicted. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good fantasy read!  

 The second book in the series, Tiger’s Quest, came out just this year and the library already has several copies on order. You can put a copy on reserve through our catalog at www.bostonpl.bibliocommons.com. Library copies of the first book, Tiger’s Curse, will be available in the teen room when she’s here, so have your library cards ready!
