Chapter 1: WOU

Image
Hello! Welcome back to nonsense.

What happened last time? Not a whole lot. Kelsey exposited about why she's upset (I explained before that I didn't have a problem with that because that's how sequels usually work). Basically, she "broke up" with Ren--despite never actually officially dating him--because she thinks she's not good enough for him, and then left him in India to start college in Oregon.

On the one hand, it's kind of nice seeing a protagonist of a YA novel who isn't a high school student. On the other hand, I absolutely despise every single thing that happens while she's in college.

So. Let's go!

Chapter One: WOU



The chapter starts when the plane lands. Which only makes me question why the prologue wasn't just a first chapter, since chapter one starts immediately after the ending of the prologue. The first book had a prologue and epilogue from the antagonist's point of view, so I expected the same thing to happen here. Nope!

Introduction and Prologue

Hi, everyone who made it through book one of the Tiger's Curse saga! I hope you're all still in one piece after the disaster that was the first book.

Things only go more off the rails in this one.

Seriously, if you haven't seen my mental breakdown documented on my Tumblr, there is literally no way to predict the weird route this book takes.

Let's get this thing started!

The Cover



Oooh, this one's a black tiger! Is this symbolic of a darker turn in the story? Or is it just a picture of Kishan because there's a love triangle in this one?
You decide!
The Back Cover
Faith. Love. Desire. How far would you go to free the one you love?

The melodrama is back! Joy.

Kelsey Hayes's eighteenth summer was crazy.

What, are we measuring time in Redwall units now? Kelsey is eighteen seasons old....

Aside from battling immortal sea monkeys and trekking through the jungles of India, she fell in love with Ren, a 300-year-old prince.

I--wow. I've never seen an entire novel plot…

Chapter 24: Endings and Epilogue

It's the last chapter! I'm also adding the epilogue in because it's only two pages long. This'll probably be my last post in a while (outside of a couple of posts discussing the story as a whole rather than chapter-by-chapter) because it's finals time again! I'll be finished up with school in early May, so we can hope for some more regular updates around then. With book two! I remember that there's more Kishan in the second book, and he's moderately less annoying than Ren.

Anyway! Last time, nothing much happened except for badly-written flirting (?) and us learning that the curse was kind of lifted. A quarter of it, at least. That was it.

Chapter Twenty-Four: Endings

We open with Kelsey thinking about the dinner she and Ren had the night before. She resolves to finally do something about the whole Ren situation. She repeats (again) her reasoning for not wanting to be in a romantic relationship with him: she's terrified that he's going to realize …
