Book review on Tiger Heart by Penny Chrimes


One magical friendship. One roaring adventure.

The magical tale of a bold young chimney sweep and a remarkable tiger, a dangerously hypnotic ruby and a mystical land found across an ocean and through a storm. Perfect for fans of The Girl of Ink and Stars and Pax.

Fly never meant to end up in a cage with a man-eating tiger. And though she’s no princess, when the tiger bows to her, she can’t help vowing to free him and return him home.

But the bird-filled jungles and cloud-topped mountains of the tiger’s homeland are an ocean away. And not everyone wants the tiger to return.

With dark and dangerous forces working against them, will Fly be able to fulfil her promises, keep them both alive and – just maybe – become the queen her tiger knows her to be?

My rating: 4/5


Firstly, in my opinion, the cover is absolutely stunning! It is really eye catching! My first impression of it was that I thought the book was going to be like the Disney Jungle Book! Ouh boy, was I wrong!

Secondly, the writing was simple and easy to understand. It was a fast read for me. Despite of my busy law student schedule, I managed to finish reading it within a day!

Thirdly, the characters are all interesting. The main character Fly is such a brave and intelligent young girl that had to work as a chimney sweep when she is actually someone really special! This story was just gripping for me to read and know on whether she will fulfill her destiny. Also, with regards to the roaring adventure I assumed that it was going to be like the Life of Pi and it was nothing like that! Tiger Heart was just amazing! It is such well written middle gred fantasy book!

Fourthly, this book taught me good life lessons. Such as men take the importance of having money to be respected when it is actually important to be a good person overall.

Money was all and a few pennies made you a king, on these streets.

Lastly, it showed that when policemen are corrupted the safety of the society would not be taken care of.

They called themselves policemen but all they cared were the toffs.

Overall, it was an exciting read. I highly recommend this book, if you like to read middle gred fantasy books.

Thank you so much #Pansing @definitelybooks, for sending me this book!

This book is available at all good bookstores!
