"Tiger's Destiny" by Colleen Houck

Tiger's Destiny (Tiger Saga #4)
by Colleen Houck
350 pages (nook edition)

Short Version: Kelsey, Ren and Kishan have come to the final quest to break the tiger curse.

Why I Read It: I have been waiting for this book since I finished the third one. I couldn't wait to see how the saga would end.

The Book: (From Goodreads)
With three of the goddess Durga's quests behind them, only one prophecy now stands in the way of Kelsey, Ren, and Kishan breaking the tiger's curse. But the trio's greatest challenge awaits them: A life-endangering pursuit in search of Durga's final gift, the Rope of Fire, on the Adaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal. 

It's a race against time--and the evil sorcerer Lokesh--in this eagerly anticipated fourth volume of the bestselling Tiger's Curse series, which pits good against evil, tests the bonds of love and loyalty, and finally reveals the tiger's' true destiny once and for all.


My Thoughts: (WARNING: This review contains spoilers!!!)
Overall, Tiger's Destiny was a great ending to the Tiger Saga. Tiger's Voyage left off with Kelsey being kidnapped by Lokesh and her making the decision to be with Kishan, although she was unsure about it. With an ending like that I could NOT wait for book 4.
We picked up right where we left off. Lokesh has Kelsey and the boys are out to save her. I'm going to skip the actual details of everything and just focus on a few parts of the book though. Kelsey's heart is so unsure of the brother she should be with. When Ren turned her down and she chose Kishan, she promised to stay with him and see it through. When Kishan proposed her heart was even more twisted up. Ren was beside himself for pushing Kelsey away, but he stayed devoted waiting for her at all times. Houck did a great job of making it hard to guess who Kelsey would choose in the end. I have always thought it to be Ren since they had such a connection, but Houck would put in lines such as "I kissed the one I loved..." and you would have no idea which tiger it was since Kelsey loved both.
The final battle in Durga's quest is where I figured it out. The whole ending of the book was amazing. Meeting Durga in the past, the emotions of their quest coming to an end, the battle, and the final sacrifice. I was so close to tears a few times, which is not something that happens to me often.
Usually I am sad when a series like this ends, but it was done so well that I feel satisfied and complete. Some day I'm going to have to come back and read them all over again.

4.5/5 Stars
