Before the curse, there was a promise. A prequel to the bestselling Tiger’s Curse series, this much anticipated novella recalls the beginning of Ren and Kishan’s story. Before Kelsey there was a girl, raised by a villain, whose love for a hero changed the course of history.

Trapped under the thumb of her abusive and powerful father Lokesh, Yesubai struggles to keep her own magical abilities secret while evading his dark powers. When Lokesh promises Yesubai to the prince of a neighboring kingdom, she becomes the central pawn in his plot to destroy the ruling family and take power for himself. Yesubai is trapped by her father’s threats and desperate to protect the man she comes to love, but she knows that any decision she makes will have dire consequences. As dark forces gather around her, Yesubai must decide if she’s willing to reveal that somewhere deep within her she has the power to change everything.






Tiger's Promise is a short novella told in the viewpoint of Yesubai (daughter of Lokesh).  If you are a fan of the Tiger's series, you are going to absolutely love this novella.  There is something so engaging about the way that Coleen Houck writes.  She manages to do exactly what I want with a book- to escape every day life and go on a fantastical adventure.  Even within the short range of this novella, I found myself transported to Yesubai's home.

I loved getting the back story about Yesubai and Kishan... I just wish that she would have given us MORE.  This whole novella could have been stretched into an entire novel for me and I would have loved it- Did you hear me Ms Houck?  It isn't too late!  Make ME  ... erm... I mean everyone another novel in this world!

Anyway- all that to say, I loved it and it is totally worth a read!
