Tiger's Promise


Synopsis:
Before the curse, there was a promise. A prequel to the bestselling Tiger’s Curse series, this much anticipated novella recalls the beginning of Ren and Kishan’s story. Before Kelsey there was a girl, raised by a villain, whose love for a hero changed the course of history.

Trapped under the thumb of her abusive and powerful father Lokesh, Yesubai struggles to keep her own magical abilities secret while evading his dark powers. When Lokesh promises Yesubai to the prince of a neighboring kingdom, she becomes the central pawn in his plot to destroy the ruling family and take power for himself. Yesubai is trapped by her father's threats and desperate to protect the man she comes to love, but she knows that any decision she makes will have dire consequences. As dark forces gather around her, Yesubai must decide if she's willing to reveal that somewhere deep within her she has the power to change everything.

4.5/5 Stars from IndieReader

"Houck’s flowing, storytelling style offers a fast-paced and intriguing adventure, that as a stand alone might be somewhat perplexing... but as a quick prequel will no doubt offer some insight to the next book. TIGER’S PROMISE is a spellbinding story about a young girl’s struggle against evil personified—in her father."

Tifferz Take~
Tiger's Promise is Yesubai's story is a sad one but gives me so much more insight about Lokesh. Lokesh is a ctuel manipulative father who as we know is power hungry and not afraid to kill for what he wants. Yesubai is very loyal to her maid Isha and will do anything to protect her. I also learned a lot more about the Amulet. The Damon Amulet that Lokesh currently has.  Each Amulet controls an element With all the peaces of the amulet together one would have the ultimate power. Guess who wants that power? Yes, Lokesh. It is a frightening thing as he is so evil. I loved seeing how Ren's parents interact. They truly do love each other. It was wonderful to read about. Colleen Houck does an amazing job with twist and turns galore! The unexpected around many corners! This is a must read for all Tiger fans! I truly look forward to Tiger's Dream! Excellent work Ms. Houck!


Chellz Review~
This was such a treat!!!!  I am a huge fan of this series, and inhale anything I can get my hands on.  Mrs. Houck has written a beautiful  prequel to the Tiger's Curse.  I loved getting to know Yesubai.  It was nice to understand why she and Ren were engaged.  We also learn why she chose Kishan.  There is so much to the young lady the the challenges she had to face growing up.   Yesubai was denied the love of a mother, but also had to endure her power hungry father, Lokesh.  This is a perfect addion to the series and I am ready for more!!!!

Jewelz Review~
Tiger's Promise was a wonderful surprise from author Colleen Houck. I have been a huge fan of the Tiger's Curse Series since it's original self-published days. This novella is a wonderful glimpse into the life of Yesubai and the circumstances surrounding her engagement to Ren and her attraction to Kishan. It is always a treat to get a bonus book that helps to flesh out some of the backstory or untold portions of a story. I'm sitting on pins and needles waiting for Tiger's Dream, and this was a wonderful way to help pass the time until that book is released.

FYI ~ This is a clean read. We received ebook copies from the publisher in exchange for our honest reviewz.
