Dela Reese is an artist who special talents that are not easily discernible upon first glance. While on a visit to China, she follows her senses and ends up purchasing an old riddle box that has seen a lot of history. What happens when she opens the box astounds her.

Hari is a tiger shapeshifter who has been imprisoned inside an ancient riddle box for over two thousand years. Cursed to the box by an evil Magi, Hari must do the bidding of whomever owns the box at the time. When Dela releases him from the box, he finds the world is a much different place than it was the last time he was summoned. He does not know what to make of Dela, who is completely different from anyone who has ever summoned him before.

Dela and Hari are wonderful characters with complex personalities. They fit together very well and the sensual tension between them is almost palpable. The love scenes are so exquisitely intimate in an emotional sense, they sizzle and pop with a life of their own. The supporting characters are absolutely fascinating and add a sense of balance and completeness to the story.

The setting is nicely described and very befitting to the story. The plot is totally intriguing and filled with twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat.

This is the first book I have read by Ms. Liu, but it will not be the last. I absolutely adored this story and hope she writes many, many more. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys stories the paranormal, especially those that include shapeshifters. Tiger Eye is a fabulous book that is most definitely a keeper!
