Trancing The Tiger by Rachael Slate
About The Book:
Delve into a world steeped in tradition and superstition…
After her parents become infected with the Red Death, Lucy Yeoh flees to Malaysia seeking answers. Everything in this closed-off section of the world is paradise—from the lush tropical climate to her sexy new neighbor, Sheng…who just might be delusional. He claims the Plague God unleashed the Red Death and only a circle of Chinese Zodiac spirit animals can cleanse the Earth. Even more, he insists she’s one of them: the Rabbit. Long furry ears and fluffy bunny tail included.
He’ll show her how to fight to save the world…
As the Chosen of the Tiger, the burden of restoring balance to the world has fallen onto Li Sheng’s shoulders. When he discovers that the ally he’s long awaited, the Dragon, is actually just the Rabbit, Sheng is quick to dismiss Lucy. If only she’d stay dismissed. Lucy’s Rabbit refuses to cooperate, undermining the authority of his Tiger at every turn…and seducing him to the limits of his darkest desires. He’s not supposed to want her. Not when he needs the spirit circle complete and she’s their weakest link.
She’ll show him a love worth fighting the world to save…
Sheng’s enemies draw closer, and not everyone wants Lucy alive. Together, they’ll have to navigate a treacherous world where a line between duty and their hearts has been drawn between them. They must either sacrifice one, or find a way to surrender to both.
Suleika’s 5 star Review:
5 stars and more… ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review *This is no way influenced my review
LOVED it!!! I’m going to start by saying that Li Sheng has made it into my Top 10 book boyfriends, I am very picky when reading and many times the hero does not make a good book boyfriend but Li Sheng has definitely made it. He is perfect! He is a strong character and he was very good to Lucy, our heroine. He is protective of her and very patient.
The story is super awesome. There is a lot going on and I have to say that this is a very different take on shifters )if they are actually shifters). I really liked the Asian background and all the descriptions, it was like I was there. The story has a lot of action and some awesome fights, you won”t be bored for one second. And the romance part in the story was perfect! It was not a rushed, fall in love right away (insta-love) kind of thing, it was at a good pace, didn’t feel SLOW, just right.
I also have to say that all the characters were super cool and likable and I fell in love with quite a few and cannot wait to see if we will have more stories with some of them as main characters.
Lucy was the perfect heroine, she was not a weak character even though she didn’t quite have the strongest of the animals.
I really liked the descriptions of the transformations, the author takes you into the mind of the character and shows you what they can see and what is happening to them while they are changing, it was really cool.
This is really an awesome story and I will definitely recommend to all my friends.
