Kelsey has gone back home to start college and is desperately trying to forget about Ren, even trying to date other boys hoping to move on. Ren isn't easy to get over though and when he follows her to Oregon her old feelings soon come flooding back. They don't have much time together before their enemy is on their trail and when Ren is captured it is up to Kelsey to complete the next task and try to find a way to rescue him. She is going to need the help of Ren's brother Kishan but will they be able to get Ren back?
I loved Tiger's Curse so couldn't wait to get my hands on Tiger's Quest, I was desperate to know what happened to the characters next. I didn't want Kelsey to leave Ren and found myself annoyed with her that she left him behind and returned to America on her own. I did understand her feelings though, she was so insecure because she didn't think Ren would have chosen her if she hadn't helped him. I was thrilled when Ren arrived on the scene, I love watching the two of them interact and although I wanted to bang their heads together at times it was sweet watching them date and take things slowly. It made a nice change from a lot of YA romances where the couples usually meet and become serious about each other within a few pages.
It was also good to see more of Kishan and get to know him better. He is a great character, the opposite of his brother in so many ways but although he has a bad boy attitude he can actually be quite sweet underneath it all. Kelsey is definitely going to have a difficult decision on her hands when it comes to which of her tigers she picks but I'm still firmly on team Ren and will be gutted for him if it goes any other way. The action in the story is just as good as the first installment and I was gripped to the book from the moment I picked it up until I'd finished it. Colleen Houck is quickly becoming one of my favourite authors although the wait for the next book may just kill me after that cliffhanger ending! If you haven't started this series yet then it's one I would highly recommend.
