Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck is sure to have you wishing for your own tiger and India adventure. Kelsey is gearing up to embark on the next chapter in her life. She figures she needs to get a summer job, earn some money, and head off to college. So the first thing she does is head to a temp agency where she lands herself a two week job working for a traveling circus. Things are going great, she has fallen in love with the white tiger and is already dreading his departure. However things become really interesting when the circus sells the tiger Ren and his new owner asks Kelsey to travel with him to India and help him settle into his new home. So begins Kelsey’s journey to breaking a century old curse and exploring a world she never knew existed.
This is a really fun romantic adventure story. I instantly fell in love with Ren, both the guy and the tiger version. Houck’s description of his tiger form was fabulous, I could feel his soft fur and hear his snorts. Houck has done a great job of keeping romantic tension between Ren and Kelsey while still having a few sweet moments. All and all, making you want to read faster to find out what will happen next between them. I found the quest portions of the story to be exciting and suspenseful to read and I am looking forward to reading book two, Tiger’s Quest, to see where their adventure takes them next. So far their destinations have been unexpected and intriguing.

The Beautiful and the Cursed by Page Morgan is a gripping Gothic tale filled with gargoyles, demons, love and the dark streets of 19th century Paris. Ingrid and Gabby move to Paris to help their mother establish a new art gallery. Grayson, Ingrid’s twin brother, moved a few weeks earlier to find them an estate for their new business and house, but once the girls and their mother arrive they discover that he is missing. Determined to track their brother down, Ingrid and Gabby soon find themselves in a world filled with creatures that they once believed were only in fairy tales.
I loved this book and can’t wait to start The Lovely and the Lost. Morgan’s world is dark and gritty and so much fun to get lost in. You can feel the dark creature’s presence as you follow the girls into the bowels of Paris. I really liked that she gave Ingrid and Gabby full personalities rather than just focusing on one sister. Even though Gabby doesn’t have the same talents as Ingrid, we discover that she is just as fierce and strong as her sister. The gargoyle mythology was so refreshing! Finally a new creature to fall in love with, and yes Luc is sure to steal your heart. Morgan created a unique series that has me entranced and excited to keep following. This is sure to capture the attention of any YA paranormal fan.
Page Morgan will be attending the year’s Tucson Festival of Books. She will be signing at our booth (#130 to #135) 10 AM on Saturday. Come meet her and get an autographed copy of her fabulous book.
