When she learns she alone can break the Tiger's curse, Kelsey's life is turned upside-down. The unlikely duo journeys halfway around the world to piece together an Indian prophecy, find a way to free the man trapped by a centuries-old spell, and discover the path to their true destiny.
"Houck's first novel is part Twilight, part Indiana Jones, and part fairy tale. Although her book — the first in a proposed series — is sometimes derivative, she tells a good story filled with chaste romance that will keep readers turning pages." Booklist
"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." Kirkus Reviews
Seventeen-year-old Oregon teenager Kelsey forms a bond with a circus tiger who is actually one of two brothers, Indian princes Ren and Kishan, who were cursed to live as tigers for eternity, and she travels with him to India where the tiger's curse may be broken once and for all.
