Book Review – Tiger’s Voyage by Colleen Houck

In my review of Tiger’s Quest I mentioned I would probably be doing one post for both Tiger’s Voyage and Tiger’s Destiny. But once again I overestimate my laziness. So here’s my review for Tiger’s Voyage, the third book in the Tiger Saga series.

Goodreads summary:

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.

My Rating: 4.5/5 stars

At the end of the second book, Ren had lost his memory of Kelsey so the beginning of the third obviously focused on that large detail. To be honest, however, I did internally groan when I saw that the first chapter was titled, ‘Living Without Love’. Despite that, this book jumped quickly back into the main plot of breaking the curse. There was definitely more tension between the three main characters, but I actually found it refreshing because Kelsey and Ren were butting heads once more, like when they had first met.

Enter the dragons. The main objective of this book is for the group to find Durga’s Black Pearl Necklace. And to obtain the necklace, they were to be aided by five dragons. Dragons are my favorite mythical creatures, so I was excited. The dragons were located out at sea, so the majority of the book takes place in the ocean and on the boy’s yacht (I wish I had a yacht…)

The reason why I gave this book an extra half of a star is because of the new characters. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the five main characters – Kelsey, Ren, Kishan, Mr. Kadam, and Nilima – but after two books of mainly them, it was nice for some other characters to be thrown into the mix. These new characters included Wes, their diving instructor, and of course the five dragons. Wes was my favorite out of the six. I wish he had been in the story longer.

Anyway, during the visit to each dragon, Kelsey, Ren, and Kishan had to basically preform some sort of task to show that they were worthy enough to acquire Durga’s Necklace. I won’t spoil anything about that, but out of the five visits the one to the green dragon was my favorite.

I also believe I rated this one slightly higher than the previous two because it was even more action-based. The romance was still there, but the plot kind of bulldozed its way over it for the most part. However, this book did make me realize I like Ren and Kelsey together. Like Kelsey, I wanted to give Kishan a chance, and I still really enjoy him as a character, but I just think her and Ren click better.

Overall, this was a great installment to the series with a number of twists. Let’s just say I’m glad I don’t have to wait a year to read the next one.

Happy reading! :)
