Happy reading! ~Shell

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.

 Right off the bat I'm going to tell you, this simply was not long enough. I need more. I love the Tiger's world and I just never want to leave it. Even though we know the majority of the entire journey, there are still holes that I desperately want filled. Questions that I need answered. And characters I am frankly not finished with. Thank goodness we still have TIGER'S DREAM to look forward to.
In the meantime...
TIGER'S PROMISE was a wonderful bridge between the beginning and end of what has been a spectacular journey. TP
was just as spellbinding as the full length novels. I was thrilled to learn more about Yesubai before her introduction to the princes. Seeing her as a young, innocent girl- how she was treated and raised by Lokesh. Knowing what she endures to protect herself and those she loves. She was indeed a fantastic and underrated character. It's a little sad we didn't get to experience her more.
As with all of the books in the series, we get a touch of magic,mythology, and history. We witness the events that lead to Yesubai's death and the curse that plagued our beloved tigers. We also get to see another side of Kishan. *Yay!!!* I do love him so.
Of course we know this is a bittersweet tale of first love and sacrifice for family. But what will it all mean in the end? How does this play into the prophecy? Will we see Yesubai again? Still, So. Many. Questions. I'll try to be content having learned so much more- and finding I not only empathized, but cared about and liked Yesubai- might just hold me over until I have finally have the conclusion in my hands. Bring it on, Colleen. Let's see what you and Durga got up your sleeves... #MoreKishanPlease
