Review: Trancing the Tiger by Rachael Slate

Trancing the Tiger

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.

Trancing the Tiger is a clever, smart, and refreshing paranormal/fantasy romance story. Rachael Slate delivers a story that is outside the box. Lucy Yeoh heads to Malaysia after her parents are infected by the Red Death. She's on a mission to hopefully find a cure that will hopefully stop this plague that has infected so many people. When Lucy finds out the cure can only accessed by a circle of the Chinese Zodiac spirit animals, and she is the rabbit, what ensures from here is a story that unlike anything else. Along the way Lucy meets Li Sheng, an alpha in every sense of the word, who happens to be the chosen person of the Tiger spirit. There is an undeniable attraction and a constant push and pull that leaves you eager to turn to the next page, wondering what will happen between these two.

There's so much more to this story besides that. Secrets, revelations, and more are reveled in this story, creating an epic journey. Rachael Slate does a remarkable job with Trancing the Tiger. It's incredibly well written and the fantastic detail she brings with the Chinese Zodiac makes you want to learn more about it after you finish reading this book. I can't wait to read the next book in this series and see where she takes these characters next. Trancing the Tiger is one book that needs to be on the top of your TBR list. Don't miss out on this great story.
