Review: Tiger’s Voyage by Colleen Houck

Publisher: Splinter (November 1, 2011)
Hardcover:  543 pages
Rating: of 5 stars

With the head-to-head battle against the villainous Lokesh behind her, Kelsey confronts a new heartbreak: in the wake of his traumatic experience, her beloved Ren no longer remembers who she is. As the trio continues their quest by challenging five cunning and duplicitous dragons, Ren and Kishan once more vie for her affections–leaving Kelsey more confused than ever.


Ren’s finally back with the group. But wait! Memory loss specific to Kelsey? Oh no. Houck, how you enjoy tormenting the readers so.

Much like the previous books, so much focus is placed on the romance aspect with the actual adventure fading into the background until appropriate moments.

But also like previous books, there’s a lot of passages devoted to the food they’re eating and the clothes worn. While it’s nice at first, it does get repetitive even if the contents aren’t always the same. What’s also repetitive is Houck’s overabundance of analogies and comparisons. Rather than using just one to make a point, Kelsey often rambles on in her own mind, heaping one comparison on top of the other. A tad unnecessary seeing as they all pretty much say the same thing.

Highlight of this book is how Kishan continually proves himself as such a great choice. I really wish Kelsey wouldn’t use him as backup. Sure, she doesn’t mean to, but that’s what it’ll be in the end, I feel. Could be wrong though, seeing as there are still two more books in the series.

Overall a satisfying read. If you’re looking for a paranormal romance, heavy on romance, the Tiger’s Saga is a great choice.

  1. Interesting review. I’ve never run across this series before. Why do you think some books have the clothing/food obsession? It always surprises me to suddenly run across a passage detailing the exact shade of a protagonist’s hosiery. On the other hand, I’d rather know too much than not enough. I can always skim. 😉

    1. Sometimes I don’t mind the details with clothes or food, especially when describing foreign cultures I’m unfamiliar with. But there is a very fine line between enough description and overwhelming amounts of it. Haha. This book teeters on the brink. And, definitely a valid point about skimming.
