'Every now and again there comes a book that makes me wish I could read things more slowly so that I could savour every page . . . within a couple of chapters I felt like I had fallen inside the book, I was so swept up in the story. . . Houck weaves mythology into the plot seamlessly.'
'An engaging and fast paced storyline, a gorgeous young man to swoon over and a wonderfully rich world built up around the main characters that kept me hooked until the last page. The thing that makes this book so wonderfully different from anything else I have read YA was its setting . . . All in all a refreshing different take on the paranormal romance / adventure genre which I really enjoyed.'
'One of the best books I have ever read. An ultimate thrill ride. A roller-coaster ride from beginning to end, this book has action, history, poetry, romance, magic -- everything you could ever want. It is a book J.K. Rowling wishes she wrote, one with so much passion and thrills you won't be able to put it down. This saga is going to be one of the best yet.'
'Young women yearn for romance, for prince charming, and sometimes for more than one suitor. Charged with action and stolen kisses . . .'
'Entrenched in the rich culture, history, mythology, and imagery of India. The exotic setting only enhances the deliciously romantic scenes. The book is as romantic as it is adventurous. . . it could easily be the next big thing.'
'A smart, vibrant adventure romance wrapped in a quest . . . takes the protagonists through adventures that would make Steven Spielberg proud . . . Full of danger, dash, allegory, and love under the banana tree.'
'Oh how I loved this book! So much so, that I got withdrawal symptoms when I had finished it.'
'I found this book so delicious... (it) is like catnip (pun intended) and I want the sequel, Tiger's Quest, at once. If you are a fan of Stephenie Meyer or Amy Plum, you will love Colleen Houck!'
'I have fallen deeply in love (and lust) with Prince Dhiren (Ren).'
'Epic fantasy-romance? I'm so there.'
'Colleen Houck is quickly becoming one of my favourite authors although the wait for the next book may just kill me after that cliffhanger ending! If you haven't started this series yet then it's one I would highly recommend.'
'Twilight meets Ringling Bros . . . Houck has an excellent sense of story and paints a vivid picture.'
'I was wrapped up in the sweet romance and heart-pounding adventure of Tiger's Curse. I found myself cheering, squealing and biting my nails - all within a few pages. In short, it was magical.'
'Sweeps you into a world of adventure and romance. The characters and places you meet are fascinating and hold your attention from start to finish. It's a magical book and like Kelsey, you're not sure what is real and what is your imagination.'
'I can't wait to get my hands on this book!!'
'I was wrapped up in the sweet romance and heart-pounding adventure of TIGER'S CURSE. I found myself cheering, squealing and biting my nails - all within a few pages. In short, it was magical.'
