Review: Tiger’s Destiny by Colleen Houck

Publisher: Splinter (September 4, 2012)
Hardcover:  464 pages

Rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

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.

Review:

By all accounts, this is book four of five. But it could very easily be the last book. It was a satisfying read.

With this book, the three are together for that final adventure: the defeat of Lokesh. With new friends/ allies, they finally have that chance to try and beat the evil that has plagued them for so long.

And Kelsey finally has to come to a final decision with her feelings. Though she may love Kishan, it has been obvious since book 1 that she is in love with Ren. Admirable as it may be to stick with her decision to be with Kishan, as a reader, all I can hope for is her happiness with Ren. And that Kishan may find someone else who can love him above all others.

The ending of the book felt too put together and rushed when thinking of it in context of the series as a whole. Had this been the last book, I might welcome such closure more. But who knows what Houck has up her sleeve for the final installment.

Overall, a solid continuation to an underloved series. Maybe it’s not the next big thing, but these books are good for a quick, easy read.
