Before the curse, there was a promise. A prequel to the best-selling 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.

"It was OK"
The story of Yesubi was OK. Definitely not the exceptional story of Ren, Kelsey, Kishan, Mr Kadam, Nalima & Durga. woven thru the other 4 books in the Tiger Curse series. Most of this story was told in flashback snapshots in the other books. Yesubi is serene & beyond beautiful. Lokesh is cruel monster of a man. Ren is honorable & Kishan is in love. All that was in the TC series. The relationship between their Mom & Yesubi as well as Yesubi's inner personality/thoughts were fleshed out some more. Its short, so it doesnt take much time. Thats the plus side. Colleen Houck is an exceptionally good story weaver. I was lost in the other Tiger Curse books. I hope the next book, Tiger's Dream, is much better than this one. More on the depth, interest level & as enchanting as the 1st four TC books in the series. I have read each of those books four times each so far. That story never gets old. Each of those books were as interesting on read 4 as it was the first time through. I may try to listen to Tiger Promise again to see if it gets better on the 2nd time around just to make sure I wasnt being overly critical, unnecessarily.
"I want more"
As with the whole series, I am left wanting more. Beautifully written and completely engaging.
"I love these characters!"
I feel so attached to these characters. This story answered many lingering questions. Another great listen.
"love the series"
not as exciting as the other books but enjoyable. would love to read another Tiger book.
"Sorry this was only a short story"
I Love the Tiger Series and this was a wonderful addition. Well done.
Yesubai is a wonderful character and although there was truly not much more that could be added to make it possible to stay in the plot and direction of entire series, it was sad that such a good character could only play a small part. I really enjoyed her.
yes, it was short story.
"A Perfect Prequel"
Yes, because it is a perfect prequel to an amazing series. I love that we get to know more about Yesubai, despite knowing her fate in the end.
Tiger's Promise is very much like the rest of the Tiger's Curse series as it still brings the same amazing detail in writing and ability to draw me into the story. Even though a novella, it is wonderful.
I love Annika. Her ability to bring life to the characters is amazing.
We all know her story, now see it first hand.
I love the Tiger's Curse series and I love Annika Boras as the narrator for the series. I am overjoyed that Tiger's Promise has finally been made into an audiobook. Thank you.
