around the world. But that’s exactly what happened. Face-to-face with dark forces, spellbinding magic, and mystical worlds where nothing is what it seems, Kelsey risks everything to piece together an ancient prophecy that could break the curse forever.

I have a lot of mixed feelings about this book. I don’t hate it, but I don’t necessarily love it. But apparently I like it enough to read the rest of the saga. When I first saw this book in Books-A-Million, I walked right past it and bought City of Ashes and Clockwork Angel instead. A month later, I went to a new library, saw this, and picked it up thinking that it was a sign. I ignored it for two weeks and decided to read it during the BookTube-A-Thon.

I literally spent all day reading it. But before I read it, I had watched a video of someone listing their favorite book characters and the person had said, “I love Ren from Tiger’s Curse.” I was all like whatever and read it a week later. About 20 pages in Kelsey had nicknamed the tiger Ren and I realized that the story had been ruined for me and I predicted what would happen. I admit, I was tempted to put the book down right then and there, but I kept reading because I was curious about Ren.


As soon as I started reading I immediately hated Kelsey. I was like, “Who’s POV am I reading from? An 8 year old child or an 18 year old teenage girl?” Kelsey’s voice is just so childish and so irritating, I just wanted to punch her. And not only did she sound like a child, she asked all kinds of dumbass questions. There were so many awkward sentences, I was thinking why was this book published with so many mistakes. It obviously could have been improved. I just can’t stand Kelsey. She’s just so annoying and juvenile. I’ve never hated a main character before, but Kelsey takes the gold. She pushes away not one hot guy, but two: Kishan and Ren. What is her problem??? I have no idea. I just know that she needs to get her mind right and she needs to actually act SMART and stop acting like a child. And what is up with her hair??? It seemed like on every other page, she was playing with her hair. News, flash honey, doing your hair is the least of your problems


      I have to admit, I do love Ren. He is such a gentleman and I am amazed that he has the patience to put up with Kelsey. There is nothing wrong with Ren at all. He’s just perfect. if it wasn’t for him, I would have just thrown the damn book at the wall and picked up something else without hesitation. What I don’t understand is why Ren loves Kelsey. There is absolutely nothing special about this girl. She acts like a fucking child. I know that I have said this multiple times, but its true.

So all in all, this book was mediocre. It wasn’t special at all and the writing was as boring as watching paint dry. I give this book 3 out of 5 stars. I was going to give it 2 stars but decided to be a little generous. I do not like this book, but the story interests me, so I am going to read the second book. I just hope that the second one is a hell of a lot better than this one.
