I just talked to Customer Service. He told me the Nook Book will be available on the 6th. Something about the publisher pushing out the date. When I pre-ordered it yesterday, I ordered it in Nook version. Today that version is not available. I have waited and waited for the book, now I have to wait 2 more days!

I was immediatly hooked on the first book Tiger's Curse in the Tiger's Curse Series by Colleen Houck. I started reading it and could not put it down. I came across this book purely by accident and I'm glad I did. After finishing Tiger's Curse, I read Tiger's Quest and then awaited anxiously for Tiger's Voyage to be released. It has been over a year and I am very excited to finally read Tiger's Destiny; Colleen left her readers waiting and wanting to know if and how the curse will be broken. Without giving any detail that would take away from reading experience, all readers...both teen and adult will enjoy these books. Colleen Houck transports you into a mystical realm, history of a foreign land, danger and love. September 4th can not come soon enough. I have already pre-purchased my book and as soon as it comes I will be reading it.

Just finished this wreched, bittersweet, and most wonderful book in hardback. I cried from the middle to end. The loved ones lost made me cry the hardest. I even have my mother hooked on these books, she is in the middle of Tiger's Voyege. Think I will reread the saga in a week. I will be missing Ren, Kishan, and Kelsey by then greatly. These books have a forever home in my reading collection. Thank you Colleen Houck.

I seriously LOVED the way this series ended... There was so many unexpected things that happened. I laughed, I cried, I was even angry at times. This book was so good and amazing. I really wish it didn't end.. I hope this author writes more amazing books like this one. I hope you all enjoy it as well. You can bet I'll be rereading this series again soon.

HEY! Same girl from before. I would like to say that the way Collean formed her characters was delightful. The evil Lokesh I wanted to strangle the life from, but Kishan I wanted to kiss. I like him more than Ren, who I wanted to strangle most of the time for what he was doing to Kelsey, I even named my pure black kitten Kishan when it was born and Kishan has always been my favorite. He is my dream guy. Mr. Kadam was like a father to me and Nilima was like the sister I always wanted ( even though I have two younger sisters) and Durga was like a wise teacher. So was Phet. Her whole book was wonderfuly detailed and was amazing. I am so glad that Barnes and Noble ( my favorite store forever!) had it out for people to buy near the kids section! If it had not been the way it was or my grandma hadn't taken me to B and N or I had not become interested, my life would be ruined! Seriosly, this book changed my life and everyone should have a copy of the whole series. All should read! This last book ties everything together and ends in a way I would not have expected it to. Thank you Collean Houk for making my life make sense! PS I think I am spelling her first name wrong. -Caroline

My experience reading this book was unforgettable. I went once to a public library looking for a book to read and tiger's cures capture my interest. When I started reading it, the story felt so alive, unpredictable. It made my heart race every time i turned the pages wanting more. The saddest part was knowing that the book was ending and I just kept begging for more.I finished the book and I begged my mom to take me to Barnes and Nobles to buy Tiger's Quest. It was the happiest day of my life. I knew I had to read it and the rest of the world didn't interest me like the book did. The same thing happened in Tiger's Voyage. Its amazing and unimaginable ideas flew every time i read a new sentence. I ended up reading the three books in less that a week. Then I had to wait a few month for Tiger's Destiny to be released. Those were desperate times, the days took forever to come but at last they did. It was all worth it. Tiger's Destiny turned out to be a beautiful book and practically the best from the series. I really recommend this books for those who haven't read the books yet. I promise you will enjoy it as much as I did. With a little bit of tragedy, and comedy, Colleen has created a love story full of action and passion who has capture every girls heart and every guys interest. TEAM REN!

One of the best books I ever read. This series keeps getting better! I have been waiting forever for the book and I read it in 2 days! You will definitely not be disappointed. Very sad at some parts. When one of the brothers chooses to stay as a sacrifice with Durga I cried. You learn more about lokesh and Kelsey ren and kishan fulfill their destiny and read the scroll that the ocean teacher had given them. I wonder what will happen in tigers dream. One of my favourite characters dies, I won't say who and Kelsey gets proposed to three times. Well one of the times she proposes. I kind of wished that at the end li would have come so I could have seen how he would react. Kelsey finnaly chooses which brother she wants. The adventures are better then before and several people make sacrafices including mr. Kadam. The tigers and Kelsey meet Durga before she was a goddess. Deffinetly the best book so far by Collen Houck and a must read

How can you not fall in love with the characters in this wild journey of love faith and hope. These books would make movies as large as Twilight (sorry big fan of them too ), if done right. This is a book for all to read, my daughter told me about the books and I started to read the first book just to please her and was totally thrown what a journey these people go on. At times you can just see in your minds eye everything going on. Like a movie going on in your head as you read almost able to touch the very being of the story and pull your self into it and live right there with them. This Woman has great talent in her writing! Please do us fans old (as I am ) and young alike give us more!!!!

It took me no time at all to breeze through Colleen Houck's final novel for the Tiger's Curse saga. It was amazing!!! I loved the first three and was anxiously awaiting this last book to come out (there was a countdown and everything). It was a highly emotional read for me. By the end of the book I was still hoping that the book would, in fact, NOT end!!! Sadly, it did, and I kept thinking about it into the next day. Love, love, loved this book and the whole series and I sincerely hope that she will continue to amaze!

I loved this book so much that I read it twice. It's a real page-turner, and will keep you wondering what's going to happen next. Some people say that they wanted to punch Kelsey. Well, I would have to agree. That idiot just kept her feelings bottled up (as she always has throughout the series), and couldn't tell Ren or Kishan how she felt! Like, man up! While I sort of understood her reasons, I feel that she shouldv'e been man enough to tell them... I mean, really? Anyway, amazing book. Although I did find the ending very bitterswet. I won't spoil it, but just so you know, I believe I cried at least twice in this book. And I don't cry. I loved all the characters very dearly as if they were very close friends. And while I liked Kelsey, sometimes, I really hated her jealousy A LOT. She repeatedly hurt Kishan instead of telling him her feelings. She could have saved him a ton of hurt and confusion if she had only confessed. On top of that, she was ENGAGED to him, and still was extremly jealous about other women being around Ren. Umm, excuse me, but didn't YOU already make your choice? You chose Kishan, dummy. So if you don't really love him, you need to say so instead of being a jealous jerk. But I must say that Phet was one of my absolute fav characters. He was very endearing and sweet. The twist about him at the end is rather surprising, and I saw it as a nice touch to the story. I also REALLY loved Kishan. His sad soul was uplifted by Kelsey, and it really touched my heart the way that Kishan transformed from a dark, lonley, sad and jaded tiger to an amazing man that you could easily respect and come to love. I really enjoyed his sweet humor. Ren was another well-developed, sweet character that I instantly fell in love with. His tenderness, protectiveness and hero-complex really wowed me and really made an impression. Mr. Kadam wa smy overall, favorite. No exceptions. I absolutly adored him and found his immense knowledge and never-ending compassion very endearing. Mr. Kadam is a very lovable character that I would be really excited to meet in real life (if that were possible). I actually find myself wishing that aome of the characters were real. But, sadly, they aren't. They were all so well-developed that I could actually picture myself meeting Mr. Kadam. I loved all them so much, and I have no one to thank but Ms. Houck (I do hope I'm spelling that right)! And overall, I applude Ms. Houck. Thank you for such an amazing read!

Seriously, though i think kelsey is a cool heroine, i want to punch her. I, of course, was rooting for kishan and wants him to recieve his happy ending with kelsey. But if kelsey loves ren, she should tell kishan how she feels. It is not fair how kelsey hurts kishan over and over. She didn't deserve him. Kelsey was so stupid and foolish, hurting both brothers. If she told him, he would have time to move on. Everyone would be happy. At least the battle scenes was good. I recommend this book, if you like unfair relationships and bloody battles.

The Tiger Saga if probably one of my favorite YA series accompanied by Cassandra Clare's TMI & TID; J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter; Maggie Stiefvater's Wolves of Mercy Falls; Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games; Veronica Roth's Divergent; and Ally Condie's Matched. The adventures and mythology are breathtaking, action-packed and entertaining; Colleen does a remarkable job describing action sequences. Kelsey Hayes is infuriating and stubborn but easy for the average girl to relate to: She's not stunningly gorgeous or skinny. She has plenty of flaws yet learns to love herself and fight for what she believes in. I loved the character development in each of the Tiger books; Kishan, for instance, meets Kelsey as a pretentious, guarded, and somewhat presumptuous man. Over time, however, he develops a profound love for Kelsey, recognizes all the good that life has to offer, and acquires a personality of a true gentleman. I thought Tiger's Destiny was a perfect conclusion to the saga, and honestly, I cannot imagine what the next book (Tiger's Dream) could possibly be about. The Tiger fandom is humming with ideas: a prequel, a story from Ren's perspective, Kishan and Durga's history, Kelsey and Ren's married life, etc. Colleen has pretty much ruled out each of these concepts but promises a 5th book full of surprises, including tying up some of the loose ends presented by the other books (For example, what's up with the tiger bones Ren and Kishan dig up in Destiny? And Why is Durga confused by Kelsey having fought the shark in Voyage?). All of these questions are to be answered. I recommend this book to teens as well as adults. I found the romantic content to be tasteful (no graphic sex scenes; no sex scenes at all, in fact), the language was mild (I can't recall the use of any curse words), and the scary moments were just intense enough to make my heart race and hold my attention. A truly wonderful series, and I absolutely CANNOT wait for Tiger's Dream.

Disappointed and frankly scared. This was a huge disappointment. I expected a lot from this book, since I loved the first 2, and enjoyed the 3rd, books in the Tiger Series. This one... not so much. I felt as though Ren and Kishan switched personalities, making me unsure of who I wanted Kelsey with, but in a bad way. Plus EVERYTHING Kelsey did was about her relationship. Everywhere she went she was pressured to decide who she liked better. Everything was about "Just look into your heart" and "Make up your freaking mind" and it got old very quickly. I'm honestly scared for how this series is going to end, because this book seemed like the end. It ended with a real series finale kind of feel. But there's still one more book in the series. The author said there's going to be 5. So I'm scared, because I don't know where she can go with this series. Kelsey ended up with the guy I wanted her to end up with, but now I'm afraid she'll switch it around on us in the last book. But I do give it 3 stars because the plot part, with action and continuation of the story, was good, and because I like the series. Plus (and this is a HUGE SPOILER ALERT) SPOILER ALERT I CAN'T SAY THIS ENOUGH. DO NOT READ PAST HERE IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE BOOK They left Kishan back in time. How is the series going to continue if Kishan is back in time? There's no more love triangle, then. I just don't understand. The last 100 pages left me feeling sick. They made me want to cry, but not in the usual fangirl kind of way. Just the sad, feeling a little empty inside kind of way.

There are no words to describe how amazing this series is. The first one kept me up late into the night wondering, 'Will she tell him she loves him?' 'Will they ever be together?' The second book made me fall in love with Kishan, & ripped out my heart when Ren forgot. The third made me angry that Kishan didn't kiss her sooner, & cry when Kells still chose Kishan over Ren. The fourth & final book, took me to the center of the earth & back again; to the past & back to the future; & to the begining of the end. It made me laugh, cry, hope, wonder, love & hate. I loved every word of this book & this series, if you're a person debating on weather or not to buy this series, do it! I promise you won't regreat it.

This series was terrific! I may not be a teen but who cares. It was truly a great series and it was easy to be caught up in the story and characters. Colleen Houck did a wonderful job bringing the characters and history to life. I look forward to seeing what she comes up with next.

This "oh I love Ren. No, I love Kishan" is getting OLD! It was old in book two and its not getting any better. Kelsay needs to man up and just make a choice! I'm almost done with this book! Other than that, the writings good, the fine details are good and despite the love triangle it's a great series. Confused yet ?:)

While I have loved the concept of this series from the beginning, I have also been annoyed with certain aspects of it. The extra unneeded trivia, but mostly, it was Kelsey's inability to choose between the two brothers; she was unwilling to give either up. I just found myself wanting to slap her by the end of the story. I kind of feel about her like I felt about Bella in Twilight; I loved the story despite the female lead. I liked the end of the story, I'm just not sure it was worth reading four books of a whinning, Kelsey.
