Title
Tiger’s Curse (A Tiger Saga)
Author
Colleen Houck
Review
This four book series concentrates on the adventure to break a curse as well as intertwining true love and desire. Kelsey is drawn to a circus tiger, unknowing that the tiger is a cursed prince. Kelsey must travel with the prince to save him and his brother from the curse. This book is filled with riddles, adventure, and romance. Almost four stars! The transition between books were slow. I lost attention while each novel was trying to explain what had happened in the previous book. There is a nice balance between the romance and adventure. Readers knew that there was another mission ahead in the next part of the book, but it was exciting to read the what happens as they try to break the curse. Throughout every book, you are screaming at Kelsey while she decides who she will love. The series ends in the most mind blowing way, a twist that was never expected. You’ll be staying up late reading this series, forcing yourself to finish just so you know if and how they survive the battle for regaining their humanity and the battle for true love.

Review
This book was written in the 1950s and is accordingly old fashioned. It is a trip. I found it really fun to travel through the world of a 50's business man who turns his back on conventional life. Somewhere in the middle, I got tired of the never-ending string of similar misadventures. Regardless, the misadventures were fun. It was endlessly entertaining to come across older slang as well. This is not a deep book, but it does have some thoughts on society, being "normal" and what value that has.
