Review: Tiger Time – Marissa Dobson
Tabitha Leigh’s life has been a quiet, albeit displeasing, one up until now. She’s barely been able to survive, and has been looking for something more. Something that would give her life meaning. Debating the outcome of her future, she’s decided that perhaps she’d be better off living in Alaska. The idea of living in a new place appeals to her, and she’s looking forward to things, even if she won’t admit it. The only thing keeping her rooted in Pittsburgh is the fact that she doesn’t want to leave her best friend, Alice, alone. Yet when her friend turns up on her doorstep bruised and battered, everything changes.
With Alice now fending for her life, Tabitha begins to wonder just what will happen to the both of them. The sudden appearance of Ty Reynolds soon has her questioning her very existence. Ty claims that she’s a were-tiger destined for great things, but that fact is something she can’t quite fathom. Sure, there have been several loose ends in her life, and she hasn’t fully accepted that she no longer has an family to call her own, but that doesn’t mean she’s what he says she is, does it?
When her life is put in danger, and Ty whisks her away to safety, Tabitha can no longer deny that something is amiss. He begins to show her things pertaining to her past, explaining some of the secrets she needs to know, yet she still refuses to believe him. She’s human. She knows she is, but Ty still insists that she’s the soon-to-be Queen of all the were-tigers.
Forced to accept her destiny, Tabitha heads off to Alaska to meet her new pack. Never once did she imagine all she’d have to leave behind. At times, she craves for her peaceful existence, yet the thought of being away from Ty doesn’t sit well with her. Ty has promised to protect her, at all costs. So far, he’s done just that. Yet as the threats against her mount, she soon begins to wonder whether she’ll be able to withstand being Queen in hopes of bringing harmony to their way of life. Thus uniting each and every tiger, and avoiding further bloodshed.
This series definitely has promise. I enjoyed the book very much, but found the action rushed in certain spots. Granted, it doesn’t detract that much from the message the author wishes to convey. The action is non-stop, that’s for sure. I do think there are a couple loose ends that do need to be addressed, namely her shifting, what happened to her apartment, and the true reason why Pierce seeks to do away with her. I look forward to seeing what the next book in the series has to bring, and whether Ty and Tabitha get their happily ever after, once and for all.
Tabitha Leigh has no idea her life is about to change. Until now, she’s been living a quiet life, unaware danger stalks her.
Ty Reynolds has been watching Tabitha from a distance to see if she would go through “the change.” When she finally does, he sees more in her than just the future of their kind. Now that she is embracing her were-tiger, he must tell her she is the Queen of the Tiger . . . with a bounty on her head.
Tabitha must be protected at all cost. She has to embrace her future and her mate or it will be the end of everything she’s just come to know and hadn’t realized she needed.
About The Author:
Born and raised in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area, I now reside about an hour from Washington, D.C. I am a lady who likes to keep busy, and am always busy doing something. With two different college degrees, I believe you are never done learning.
Being the first daughter to an avid reader, this gave me the advantage of learning to read at a young age. Since learning to read I have always had my nose in a book. It wasn’t until I was a teenager that I started writing down the stories I came up with.
I am blessed with a wonderful supportive husband, Thomas. He is my other half and allows me to stay home and pursue my writing. My writing buddies Max (a cocker spaniel) and Dawne (a beagle mix) are always around to listen to me bounce ideas off them. They might not be able to answer, but they are helpful in their own ways.
