This was a so-and-so book, in my opinion. I felt like the main character was unrealistic- she had no personality. Ren seemed too perfect. And the conversations throughout the book were too formal: I haven't heard anyone speak the way Kelsey and Ren do. It was still a nice read, though, and I thought the idea was cool.

I wasn't sure with this book at first but then I read it and ended up loving it. I recommend it!

I have a lot of opinions about this book. When I first read it in middle school, I loved it and found it very entertaining. However I stopped reading the series after the third book because it was beginning to bore me. In high school I attempted to re-read the series, and found it very dry and full of clichés. Kelsey's character is very flat, and Ren is so perfect it becomes almost sickening. (I do have a soft spot for Kishan, however) Everything that happens in the book is just way too convenient. I know that it's supposed to be fantasy but this was just cushy. I recommend it to anyone under thirteen, but if you're a book-critiquing Nazi like me then you'll want something with more in depth characters and writing style. It has the potential to be a good love-triangle/adventure story but just doesn't hit the mark.

Gay - the only word to describe it! How could a tiger transform into a handsome man and make out with a teenage girl!

wow! This book is amazing! I'm even doing a roleplaying game at school (not done don't spoil it)

Tiger's Curse was a great read! The Indian mythology is a refreshing new addition to paranormal romance. My favorite part of this story is Kelsey's relationship with Ren-when he's in tiger form. He provides Kelsey a connection which she really needs. As a foster child after losing her parents Kelsey doesn't connect deeply with anyone and keeps herself and her heart apart from everyone. As she helps take care of the tiger she starts letting her guard down and opening her heart. The plot takes off from there and the action starts as the story takes us to India. I'm definitely looking forward to even more inclusion in the next book of India and the mythology this story is taking inspiration from. The only drawback for me is how Ren and Kelsey's relationship grows when Ren takes human form. Ren's looks are portrayed as Adonis-like and of course Kelsey is instantly attracted to him yet she doubts that she is good enough for this Indian prince. I hope for more character development in the next book to bring out the confidence that I can see in Kelsey and the potential for this to be a really great romance over the arc of all the books in this series. I'm definitely excited to dig into the second book, Tiger's Quest

"It's like this. . .a starving man would gladly eat a radish. right? In fact a radish would be a feast if thats all he had. But if he had a buffet in front of him, the radish would never be chosen'. Ren paused a moment. 'I don't get it. What are you saying.' 'I'm saying. . . I'm the radish."
