It's live!! Cover Reveal: Tiger's Promise by Colleen Houck + Giveaway (International)

 

Hello, YABCers! We have a very exciting cover reveal for you today!

Today we're super excited to reveal the cover for TIGER'S PROMISE by Colleen Houck releasing June 1, 2014. Before we get to the cover, here's a note from Colleen:

 

Dear YABC Readers,
 
I'm so excited to reveal the cover of my new novella, TIGER'S PROMISE. Yesubai's story has been one that I've been longing to delve into for quite a long time. She is a fascinating character and a much more sympathetic and stronger person than even I gave her credit for. The more I learned about her father, the villain Lokesh, as I wrote the other books in the tiger series, the more thought I gave to her and it wasn't long before I realized just how important and influential she was in the lives of all my characters. Her quiet voice has been whispering through the centuries and at long last, her story is told. I have grown to love her and I hope you will too!
 
~ Colleen Houck (TIGER'S PROMISE)

About the Book

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.

This cover was not what I was expecting. I has way more intricacy than what I ever imagined. And I love it. I like how Yesubai is laying down and not directly in front of us, and I like the colors, it makes it look even more mysterious. Now, I want to read it.

The Cover is lovely if not slightly different from the others. Where on those there was mainly one focus this one shows two, It is perfect to set itself aside from the rest of the series and I am looking forward to reading more about Yesubai.

The over is not only gorgeous, it's also very mysterious. I never thought that I would want to read more about Yesubai, but I feel like reading more about her life would really benefit the series in a way that it would add a whole new "layer" to the storyline.

The cover is just absolutely beautiful. It definitely portrays the saying. "The eyes are the window to the soul." Those eyes are just so haunting, looking at it makes me feel like she is hiding a secret. The lotus flower which is significant to the books makes it look complete. It adds to the beauty that is Yesubai. I just love it sooo much. Yesubai has always captured my mind since she was practically the Kelsey with the two hot and amazing brothers! I love Kishan but I am definitely Team Ren. Learning more about Lokesh as I read the books, I got to see how his up bringing affected him to act a certain way which is mean and just pure evil. I can't imagine being Yesubai being cruely treated by Lokesh knowing that he wanted to have a son and not a daughter. Did she also now that Lokesh killed her mom? So much questions in my mind that I'm sure would be answered once I read this. I'm so excited to get my hands on this. I just finished the 4 books so I'm excited to be part of this adventure again!!

The cover was beautiful! The synopsis was great. Originally I thought that it was going to be about Ren and Kelsey again and I never thought that I would be interested in other character stories like Kadam or Yesubai, but he synopsis really brought me in and made me really curious about her life, her side of the story and would really give the story-line a new branch to work with.

I wasn't expecting the picture of Yesubai on the cover, but I love it. I kinda figured that the book would be about Ren and Kishan's past involvement with Yesubai and Lokesh, so I'm really excited to see how it turns out. I can't wait to read it!

Love the lotus flower, confused as to why Yesubai is upside down - is it her reflection in the water we are seeing?

Amazing, beautiful and breathtaking. The Tiger's Curse series is my favorite book series in the world. It took me through an incredible adventure, and I fell in love with the story. Once it was done, I was happy with the happy ending but sad that my communication with the characters was temporarily over until I re-read them. Seeing that there is one more book- and the cover is so enticing and "promising"... It's like my birthday. Absolutely overwhelmed by this announcement. Can't wait!
