With a premise like that, fantasy aficionados and die-hard action lovers alike will no doubt be expecting something exceptional--and Australian author Kylie Chan delivers big time! White Tiger is the first book in Chan's breathtaking trilogy that ingeniously blends magic, martial arts, and urban fantasy with a healthy dollop of paranormal romance thrown in to sweeten the pot.

Our customer reviews

From the moment I read White Tiger I've been hooked to all books within each of the trilogies. I think it's an amazing story throughout the whole series that still keeps me enthralled years and multiple books later. It's packed full of Chinese mythology, action and intrigue. Chan has managed to combine both the mythology and present day effortlessly which makes it easy to read and become completely absorbed in. I've gone from someone who hated to read to someone who now has trouble putting books down. Friends and I race to see who can buy the next book first.show more

I picked the first book by accident at the air port, I didn't know it was the first book in a trilogy, I didn't even see that it has a title saying book #1! when I got home, I looked it up online and found out there are 2 other books on the series. I quickly ordered them and I didn't stop reading since... I feel so lucky I picked this book, it was completely unintended. I loved it. every character, every scene, everything. I couldn't stop reading it. I really enjoyed all three books and I absolutely recommend reading them.show more
