Passion. Fate. Loyalty.
Would you risk it all to change your destiny?
The last thing Kelsey Hayes thought she'd be doing this summer was trying to break a 300-year old Indian curse. With a mysterious white tiger named Ren. Halfway 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.-Summary from

Hey guys,
As I mention in the video, this is my first attempt at a video review, so be kind :) This vlog will also count as my entry to Ms. Houck's ARC contest, wish me luck! This book ROCKED! Wanna know why? Watch the video and find out.

PS. If you have any suggestions on what I should and shouldn't do or mention in a video review, please let me know. Constructive criticism is appreciated :)


  1. Nice video review!
    I love that tiger on the cover :) and the book sounds terrific!

  2. I love watching your videos, your smile is contagious girl :) As for critism.. well, you should work on not being so good! Haha :D No, but seriously, you brought out all the elements of a good review. And you made me want to read it, I love engaging stories and lots of action/peril. Thanks for sharing with us your thoughts!

  3. No need to worry, I think you did a great job with your vlog review. I would say try to keep the time shorter. I know that is hard but people with the attention span of gnat, like me, may start to lose focus quickly.

    I'm so interested in reading this book know. I didn't know it explored Indian culture. Sounds fascinating. Good luck, D! I hope you win! :)

  4. You did a great job!!!! (: I have Tiger's Voyage for review on my shelf right now, gotta finish Tiger's Quest though first! I am SO glad you enjoyed Tiger's Curse!!! (:

  5. Fantastic V-blog. I love that is not edited!!

    You know how I feel this series... but seriously, you win the arc, you are shipping it out to me. I promise to send it back... I am dying to see Ren again!

  7. Sorry for the deleted post, it kinda messed up, anyhoo...

    Guess what D! Come on guess! I got it today! Yeah, I know, I am shocked myself, you know why? My LIBRARY HAD IT! Normally my library sucks but they are finally getting better books! That is why it was surprise to see it on the shelf on the bottom.... I cannot wait to read it :) Eeek!

  8. Nice! I loved Tiger's Curse as well.


  9. I'm so glad you liked this one! I loved it too, and can't wait to read the next book! :)

  10. Diana, I truly loved your vlog review! Every time you smiled, it made me want to smile. I loved how you set up the novel but didn't give any major spoilers and ruin the good parts, it was perfect. I also loved how you told me your favorite parts and even the tiny thing you didn't like. I almost picked this book up the other day because of another post you did about it. It's the next book I'm buying from Amazon...along with its sequel. Again, loved the vlog review! :D

    @Lulu- Whoo wooo! I am SO happy for you, I'm sure you'll love it! Your library is stepping up their game ;)

    @Missie- I definitely thought about cutting out some parts to make it shorter, but my computer has been acting up, so I just left it as is. Hope it wasn't too bad :) Thanks for the feedback.
