TIGER’S CURSE (THE TIGER SAGA #1) – COLLEEN HOUCK

Image
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.

Tiger’s Curse is the exciting first volume in an epic fantasy-romance that will leave you breathless and yearning for more.

Spoiler Warning!  This review may contain spoilers that might give you just a tad more information than you should know in approaching this book.  If you are okay with that then go right ahead and read it.  I do my best to avoid giving away too much but sometimes I just cannot help myself...


I wish I could say that I absolutely loathed reading this book – it has enough faults to support that – but there is something…

IN THE AFTERLIGHT (THE DARKEST MINDS #3) – ALEXANDRA BRACKEN

Ruby can't look back. Fractured by an unbearable loss, she and the kids who survived the government's attack on Los Angeles travel north to regroup. With them is a prisoner: Clancy Gray, son of the president, and one of the few people Ruby has encountered with abilities like hers. Only Ruby has any power over him, and just one slip could lead to Clancy wreaking havoc on their minds. 

Reunited with Liam, the boy she would-and did-sacrifice everything for to keep alive, Ruby must face the painful repercussions of having tampered with his memories of her. She turns to Cole, his older brother, to provide the intense training she knows she will need to take down Gray and the government. But Cole has demons of his own, and one fatal mistake may be the spark that sets the world on fire.

I feel like a broken record talking about the third book in the series but, I have to say, my HEART! I mean, how many times can Bracken crush and dismantle this blood-pumping organ of mine until I can’t…

NEVER FADE (THE DARKEST MINDS #2) – ALEXANDRA BRACKEN

Ruby never asked for the abilities that almost cost her her life. Now she must call upon them daily, leading dangerous missions to bring down a corrupt government. Other kids call Ruby “Leader”, but she knows what she really is: a monster. 

Crucial information about the disease that killed most of America’s children has survived, but its truth is saved in one place: a flashdrive in the hands of Liam Stewart. As Ruby sets out across a desperate, lawless country Ruby will do anything to protect the people she loves. 

But what if winning the war means losing herself?

You know when you get those really traumatic books that you want to throw in someone’s face and hope that it hurts them more than the book hurt you... this is one of them.  Heartbreak-on-heartbreak.

Much like the first book, Alexandra Bracken has managed to create an action-packed novel that kept me on my toes and my heart racing the whole time.  I found myself holding my breath through the gunfire, the roaring of flames and the…
