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.
The Tiger's Curse series is one of my all time favorite series. I have been obsessed with them and really enjoy the journey each time I reread them. Tiger's promise goes back tot he beginning where the curse started. In the series we learn little snip its of what happened to the Rajaram brothers but in Tiger's Promise we read from the point of view of each main character. It was nice to see the brothers from when they were younger as well as their parent's whom I've grown to love. This book also has a sneek peek into the fifth and final book of the series that fans are still waiting for. This is a must read to get the full picture of the curse and to learn about the elusive Yesubai.
