A tiger left behind.

A goddess in need of an ally.

Stranded in a time and place he never wished for, Kishan Rajaram must carry out his destiny of assisting the beautiful yet extremely irritable goddess Durga. This daunting task is not made easy by the fact that he must also face the truth about the girl he loves and the brother who stole her away.

When the wily shaman Phet appears and tells Kishan that Kelsey needs him, he jumps at the chance to see her again. In his efforts to save her, Kishan discovers that the curse he thought was over is just beginning. As time unravels around him, Kishan realizes that the fates of all those he holds dear lie in hands.

The goddess’s power hangs in the balance. Kishan has no choice but to sacrifice the unthinkable to fight the dark forces swirling around the woman he’s charged to protect. As he does, he discovers that love and loyalty create their own magic and accepts that he must decide his destiny once and for all.

Tiger’s Dream is the conclusion to the epic Tiger’s Curse fantasy romance series that left you breathless.

Tiger's Dream is the fifth and final book in the highly popular Tiger's Curse Saga. When I initially read the first book, I was really impressed with the originality of the plot and the various aspects that went into the book. There is a lot of rich Indian mythology and folklore in the series, which I have always found really interesting. The concept of the quest and all the trials that the characters must face made this book a fast paced adventure that was hard to put down. The story's background was well written and fit in well with the current plot of the book and series. Since this is the fifth book, I highly recommend reading the previous books beforehand. There are a lot of things that happen throughout the series and readers who don't know about them wouldn't be able to understand or appreciate some of the circumstances or references in this book.

Even after all the other books, I continued to really enjoy the characters and their unique personalities. The romance in the book is sweet and had my stomach fluttering, but it was a good blend of steamy and syrupy. This is one of those bittersweet books. I'm sad because the series is ending and I don't want it to, but the novel itself was wonderful and brought a great ending to overall story. This book (and series) brings a new voice and fresh ideas to the young adult genre - this is not your typical fantasy, mythology, or shapeshifter story. It's so much more than that! I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to read something that's not cookie-cutter and that stretches the imagination.
