ABOUT THE BOOK:
The first novel in a beautiful, heartbreaking new trilogy from Paullina Simons, the international bestselling author of Tully and The Bronze Horseman.
Can true love ever die?
Julian lives a charmed life in Los Angeles. Surrounded by friends, he is young, handsome, and runs a successful business. Everything changes after he has a fateful encounter with a mysterious young woman named Josephine. Julian’s world is turned upside down by a love affair that takes him—and everyone else in his life—by storm. For the two new lovers, the City of Angels is transformed into a magical playground.
But Josephine is not what she seems and carries secrets that threaten to tear them apart—seemingly forever.
A broken man, his faith in tatters, Julian meets a mysterious stranger who tells him how to find Josephine again if he is willing to give up everything and take a death-defying trip from which no one has ever returned.
So begins Julian and Josephine’s extraordinary adventure of love, loss, and the mystical forces that bind people across time and space. It is a journey that propels Julian toward an impossible choice which will lead him to love fulfilled…or to oblivion.
The Tiger Catcher takes readers from the depths of despair to the dizzying heights of joy in the first novel of an unforgettable trilogy of love lost and found. For all fans of Outlander, The Time Traveler’s Wife, and Jojo Moyes.
“I should have kissed you.”
OMG!!! That was truly epic!!! I’m a fan of this author for life now. And I haven’t even read ‘The Bronze Horseman’ yet!
If you told me I would love a time travel romance and historical romance, I probably would have laughed. And judging by the wildly diverse reviews of this book, I would also say that theaudiobook is a must! Jeremy Arthur literally brought this fantastic journey to life.
This was am intriguing and mysterious story to me. Julian is a blogger living in California and meets the mysterious actress, Josephine. The first part of the book is building their intense love but what I loved most was that Josephine was not an entirely likable character. Yet I was compelled to keep going to see where this exquisitely detailed story would lead me.
What started as a Hollywood love story then changed into something else and I was stunned! I am so glad the blurb is so vague. I am also thrilled that this will be a three-book series because I NEED MORE! I felt the intense longing and deep love that Julian felt for his Josephine and completely understood why he felt compelled to chase her literally across time.
“Listen to me very carefully,” Devi said. “Take your assumptions about what you know and throw them all out the window. All of them. You need to learn a new language. The language of the meridian, of universal time, of hope, and of faith.”
The author obviously spent an enormous about of time researching the details in this book. I loved all the minute details and felt that everything was an important clue to be remembered for later. This is going to be a spoiler-free review but suffice to say that I felt every emotion while listening to the audio book of ‘The Tiger Catcher’ – fear, love, passion, loss, heartbreak and hope.
This book deals with some difficult themes but the story is unforgettable. The characters were all very flawed and real and I cannot wait for the next book in this series!
“Are you prepared to risk everything to gain nothing…but there was another outcome…couldn’t he risk everything, and gain everything?”
