    2.5 stars Have no idea what?s happening to me, I don?t seem to get lost in any story these days. This one started so well - like a mix between Legend and An Ember in the Ashes. But my enthusiasm did not last long. Silly mistakes, convenient coincidences, strange decisions, cha...

    The Tiger at the Midnight (title which you'll only understand its meaning at the very end of the book) is an Indian Mythology inspired story about two enemy kingdoms but is a character-driven plot. Meet Esha, a girl which happens to be also the Viper: a lethal, legendary assassin. Esha...

    I?m really, really soft for these characters, okay. And the romantic development in this book? Swati Teerdhala writes tension so phenomenally well! Julianna and I just ate it all up. IT WAS GREAT! Kunal and Esha are explosive together. Although The Tiger at Midnight greatly deviat...

    4.5 stars. I was surprised by this book. I went in with low expectations. No fears. This book did not disappoint me. It was just what I needed. I really enjoyed Swati Teedhala's writing, from her characterizations to the world she had created for this book. The political, cultural an...

    A deliciously twisty cat-and-mouse story that had me racing through the pages. I love stories that challenge their protagonists' beliefs, and both Esha and Kunal face complex, heart-breaking decisions in their journey to discover both themselves and each other. ...

    This book was... ok. Nothing more. Nothing less. It was just ok. That was the problem. I spent the entire time reading just wishing to fully dive into the story and not being able to. This isn't a bad book. There is nothing blatantly wrong with the novel. My issue isn't even a speci...

    Coming in at almost five hundred pages in my physical ARC, I thought this would be a book I'd have to chip away at for a day or two. But THE TIGER AT MIDNIGHT was such an easy read and I devoured it in only a few hours. That said, I'm not entirely sure this is a fantasy that's going to...

    3,5 stars Another average rating in my most anticipated books of the year.. As you can imagine I feel sad! I'm starting to believe that I am just too weird and difficult to satisfy.. The story was good, the characters very likeable, the writing and world building very well done, but...

    I think me and ya fantasy may need to part ways soon. This followed every stereotypical plot line nuance and fulfilled every trope to perfection. Nothing excited me, interested me or surprised me in this book. Some of the writing regarding the world building was enjoyable - bu...

    When I met the amazing author of this book at an event, she talked about seeing yourself in the protagonist, and how that helps you understand and love the story. Whether that is race, gender, or personality, I personally agree. "The Tiger At Midnight" is the start of an epic fantas...

    yes, I will be thinking about Kunal and Esha every single day for the rest of my life. what about it The randomness of fate once again struck her as being the ultimate cruelty and blessing of the gods. It seemed Kunal truly was her tiger at midnight, there to collect on her misstep...

    How is there not more talk about this book?! I'm insanely impressed with this debut! The nonstop cat and mouse game + sexual tension was EXACTLY what my body and soul needed. There was no toying around with the attraction the way a lot of YA enemies to lovers go. I am...shocked to say ...

    Sooo I'm a little biased here, because Swati is actually my writing mentor and a lovely person - but I REALLY loved this book (and I would have loved it just as much even if I didn't know her personally)! If you know anything about me, you know I'm a huge fan of the cat and mouse t...

    OK. The book was Ok. The disappointment was that I felt nothing new in the story; that i have read a similar kind of a story before. It seemed to be that the story line was not original. The positive point is that the story was an easy read. Since this book is the start of a...

    THE TIGER AT MIDNIGHT is without a doubt one of the best fantasy books I have ever read. Get ready to fall in love with Kunal, Esha, and a lush world as beautiful as it is dangerous. Swati's prose will have you laughing and crying and swooning, often in the same scene, and these charac...

    The Tiger At Midnight was?alright. Just. Alright. The writing was in this strange area between good and hmmm. The author did string together some admittedly beautiful descriptions, but there were a few bewildering turns of phrase. I suppose the author was attempting to spin a p...
