Tiger Eye (Dirk & Steele #1) by Marjorie M. Liu
What is it about:
He looks completely out of place in Dela Reese’s Beijing hotel room—like the tragic hero of some epic tale, exotic and poignant. He is like nothing from her world, neither his variegated hair nor his feline yellow eyes. Yet Dela has danced through the echo of his soul, and she knows this warrior would obey.
Hari has been used and abused for millennia; he is jaded, dull, tired. But upon his release from the riddle box, Hari sees his new mistress is different. In Dela’s eyes he sees a hidden power. This woman is the key. If only he dares protect, where before he has savaged; love, where before he’s known hate. For Dela, he will dare all.
What did Voodoo Bride and me think of it:
I will confess I had expected this to be a book for Voodoo Bride alone, as this sounded like it would be too romancy for me.
I was wrong!
I absolutely love this book!
As it is a Paranormal Romance there is a lot of romance of course, but it's mixed with a thrilling, intense, action-packed adventure that kept me on the edge of my seat. Just a few pages into this book it got both of us hooked and wouldn't let us go. Liu's writing is excellent as always and the world she creates in this story is just as intriguing as the one she created in her Hunter Kiss series.
Voodoo Bride was particularly taken with the romance storyline, which is both intense and sweet. Apart from Hari there are some other cool male characters introduced in this book and after finishing this read Voodoo Bride immediately checked all other books in this series to see if any of those males would get their own book.
All in all this was an awesome read and we're both looking forward to reading the rest of this series.
Why should you read it:
This book has it all: action, adventure, magic and romance
