Tiger's Destiny Paperback
With three of the goddess Durga's quests behind them, only one prophecy now stands in the way of Kelsey, Ren, and Kishan breaking the tiger's curse.

A heart pounding new installment that will completely blow your mind!I have been waiting for the release of this book for ages and so I was absolutely ecstatic to get an ARC. I have to say that this book was well worth the wait and readers will be falling in love with these characters all over again. This book is one of the most intense books of the series so far. There were so many new twists and turns to this installment of the series that I was surprised more than once. The amount of sheer emotion in this book is staggering, but tempered with a good deal of action. I was so engrossed in this book that I read it hours on end. There are also some interesting new creatures that the gang meets that make many of the past ones seem like harmless animals. We also get to see a new side to Kelsey and how much she really has grown throughout her journeys. She is no longer relying solely on Kishan and Ren when it comes to battling monsters. Kelsey has become a great warrior in her own right and it was fun to see her kick some major butt. Unfortunately Kelsey isn’t the only one who has grown stronger. Lokesh has found a way to become even more powerful and take every ounce of cunning and skill at the gangs disposal to stop him once and for all. The question is will they make it out alive?Tiger’s Curse fans won’t want to miss out on this thrilling new installment that holds many more surprises for Kelsey and the boys!

I really enjoyed this story, with a minor quibble or two. Being the fourth book in the series, it managed to continue the tradition of combining action, adventure, romance, and mythology into a great, well-paced story. The characters continue to grow and be forced to make tough choices. There are some heart-breaking losses in this one, as well.The love triangle storyline between Kelsey, Ren, and Kishan continues, and while there were some supremely frustrating moments, and times I wanted to hit Kelsey over the head for her indecision, mixed messages, and the pain she inflicted on one or both of the guys, even if unintentional, ultimately, I found the ending and closure to that story satisfying. I feel she made the right choice, though I'm sure there are others who may disagree.I felt some of the storyline with Lokesh's obsession with Kelsey, and his desire to have a son with her for the power the child would bring him, a bit, shall we say, creepy. Oogie. Yuck. I'm not saying it wouldn't happen if this were real life, but it did make me feel a bit dirty reading about it at times. Fortunately, it never gets to a critical point before Kelsey is rescued (not really a spoiler, did you really think she wouldn't be?), but readers who have a history of sexual abuse or assault may find those parts disturbing, so be forewarned.The other part I had trouble with is the time travel aspect. And I'll admit, I always have a bit of trouble with time travel being used as a plot device, just because of the conundrums and/or paradoxes that inevitably arise. I didn't immediately notice any glaring issues that were not addressed sufficiently at the time I was reading it, but afterwards, I did have some questions come to mind. More on that later.Now, overall, I felt this was a very satisfying ending to the series, with a good ending, with closure for all, and I definitely recommend reading the series. HOWEVER, I have just recently learned that there is to be a fifth book in the series. I have no idea what that one will be about, since this one seemed to be written as the final book. So, I will say that, while I am definitely going to read the next book, there is a little bit of trepidation wondering how it will work with the way this one ended. I'm wondering if the questions I had that arose in regards to the time travel aspect will be addressed in that one, but we shall see. To be continued... ?

I'm not sure what the 5th book could be about, but if this is the end it was a beautiful ending to an amazing story. I did not stop reading until I was done. Ren and Keshawn are some of the most amazing characters ever written. This book made me cry in happiness
