Release and Giveaway! #NaNoWriMo





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.


4.5/5 Stars from IndieReader

"Houck’s flowing, storytelling style offers a fast-paced and intriguing adventure, that as a stand alone might be somewhat perplexing... but as a quick prequel will no doubt offer some insight to the next book. TIGER’S PROMISE is a spellbinding story about a young girl’s struggle against evil personified—in her father."

—Maya Fleischmann for IndieReader
