Pick this up at your local library, buy a copy of it, listen to the audiobook. This was such a unique concept for a novel. There are magical houses that control the land around them and are governed by their caretakers. A house is only as good as its caretaker and a caretaker always puts the house first. I liked Vi as an MC and her internal struggle about loving others verses loving her house was reletable. My full review is linked above in the title!
From Annie Sullivan, author of A Touch of Gold, comes Tiger Queen, a sweeping YA fantasy adventure that tells the story of a fierce desert princess battling to save her kingdom. For Kateri, winning also means fulfilling a promise to her late mother that she would protect her people, who are struggling through windstorms and drought.
The situation is worsened by the gang of Desert Boys that frequently raids the city wells, forcing the king to ration what little water is left. The punishment for stealing water is a choice between two doors: behind one lies freedom, and behind the other is a tiger. What Kateri discovers twists her world—and her heart—upside down. It was a quick read for me and while I did enjoy it I found the side characters and love interest a bit lacking in the characterization department.
The main character was awesome though and I loved being in her head. It was also cool to read about the desert and the lives and culture of the people that lived there.
The overall story was based on the short story The Lady, or the Tiger? Which would you chose? Once on the road, Veronica quickly remembers nothing with Bailey is ever simple and that means two days of stolen cars, shotguns, crazed ex-boyfriends, truck stop strippers with pro-life agendas, and a limo driver named Bob. When their fighting leads to a brutal moment of truth, Bailey abandons Veronica.
So this bad boy was added to my list last minute this morning. I had heard nothing about it on social media until I was headed to bed last night. I need to know what all the buzz is about. Also what crazy ass boy pokes holes in condoms. Dump him and run girl. Overall it sounds like a crazy road trip book and I adore those.

After the group gets a fire going, Unalaq says that he believes that he knows the reasons why the dark spirits are after them.

He pins the blame on Tonraq. He asks Korra if she had ever wondered how her father ended up in the south or why he never took her to visit his homeland in the north. Tonraq is upset with his brother revealing his past, to which Unalaq retorts that he should have long since told his daughter the truth.

Tonraq is subsequently forced to confess that he left the North Pole because he was banished. Tonraq 's men escort the captured barbarians from the destroyed spirit forest. Tonraq reveals to the party that when he was younger, he had been the general of the military in the Northern Water Tribe. The tribe was being attacked by barbarians at the time when he and his troops responded with a counterattack.
His efforts were so successful, he was able to rout the barbarians to a sacred spiritual forest. Refusing to let the barbarians gain sanctuary on hallowed ground, Tonraq and his troops initiate an assault on the troops, while destroying the sacred forest in the process. The spirits turned hostile after the destruction of their habitat and attacked the capital city, but Unalaq was able to use spiritbending to guide the spirits back to the forest and turn them neutral.
However, since Tonraq was responsible for the attack in the first place, his father banished him from the Northern Water Tribe. Tonraq accepted his fate and left to pursue a new life in the South.
With the story at an end, Bolin notes that Tonraq was supposed to be the tribal chief, only for Unalaq to take his place, which would explain the animosity between them. Mako gives his brother a hard nudge in the gut to shut him up, after which Korra voices her displeasure toward Tonraq for having kept this from her. Tonraq defends that he wanted only to protect her from the shame he had brought on the family. Korra angrily retorts that she has had enough of his protection and secrecy and storms off. Jinora is intrigued by Aang 's statue at the Southern Air Temple 's sanctuary.
Meanwhile, Tenzin shows Jinora the hall of Avatar statues. However, Meelo and Ikki are preoccupied racing each other on air scooters, resulting in the boy crashing into a statue and accidentally destroying it, prompting Tenzin to tend to him. Jinora looks up the statue of Aang, being intrigued by it.
However, she suddenly senses something behind her, though as she flips around, there is no one there.
Back in the south, as the group continues on their way, Tonraq tells Korra that she has a right to be angry with him. He confesses that he does not want her to repeat his mistakes and insists they cease this quest, claiming that the physical and Spirit World are meant to remain separate. Korra reminds him that the Avatar is the bridge between both worlds and she has this chance to live up to her potential.
The Southern Lights
Her father, however, insists that Unalaq may not be right about the spirits. Due to the Hundred Year War , the South was thrown out of balance. The Northern Water Tribe has helped the South rebuild physically, but it lacks spirituality, hence the dark spirits' rampage. Dark spirits attack the group. The group arrives at the Everstorm.
Suddenly, they are attacked by dark spirits, which steal their supplies, as well as cause Bolin's snowmobile to go haywire and send him and the twins speeding toward a mountain. Tonraq and Korra fight off the spirits and during the fight, she attempts to use Unalaq's spiritbending but it fails to work. Unalaq is able to save her when the spirit came close to harming her. Meanwhile, the twins leap off the snowmobile with Bolin. They slide down the slope, Bolin's coat inflating while the twins slide down on ice shoes. Once they slow to a stop, Eska waterbends ice to deflate Bolin.
