Blog Tour Book Review: The Tiger Temple by Steven Moore

3rd July 2018

It’s my stop on the Blog Tour of a great new series by Steven Moore, the Tiger Temple.

Set in the beautiful Bali it really Shows another darker, more dangerous side of the hugely popular tourist spot •

Hiram Kane, an expedition leader taking a break after a shine in the Peruvian Andes, begins an epic adventure to retrieve the kidnapped 6-year-old daughter of his friends, The Tiger Temple is billed as an action packed thriller but how does it fair up?

It’s a fantastic adventure.

Who doesn’t enjoy a chase of motorbiking thugs and unsuspecting heroes?
It did keep me turning the pages to find out what happens next.

I did feel that the character of Hiram Kane was a little hollow and I didn’t really get ‘that’ connection.  However, The Tiger Temple is the first in the Hiram Kane Adventure Series. Which means there is plenty of time for him to develop and readers to find out more about him. After all, who gives it all up on the first date?

Overall, The Tiger Temple was great.
A fast paced thriller with plenty of foundation to build on!

Steven Moore grew up (apparently) by a beach in England. An avid (average) sportsman, painter, photographer and reader, those loves were only trumped by his love of travel and writing. To date he has visited 53 countries and has lived and worked on five continents. Highlights include trekking in the Andes and Himalayas, scuba diving all over the world, teaching English in Korea, and eating anything and everything, wherever he happens to be. Oh yes, and sampling local beers, obviously.

Steven now lives in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico with his wife, freelance journalist Leslie Patrick Moore, and though they’ve at last found a beautiful home base, the next adventure is always just around the corner.

Steven has recently published the first three instalments of his action thriller series, ‘The Tiger Temple’, ‘The Samurai Code’, and ‘The Condor Prophecy’, to great acclaim, and the 4th, ‘The Shadow of Kailash’, is coming in spring of 2018.

Early tributes for ‘The Samurai Code’:
“Starts fast and doesn’t let up.”
“An unremitting whirl throughout.”
“Thrilling from start to finish.”
“Great action, history & a dash of mystery.”
“Fast-paced and brilliantly written adventure thriller.”

“Moore has a crisp, economical style, and sets the scene well. The story, while bleak, is shot through with moments of pathos…compelling from start to finish” – Mark Dawson, bestselling author of the John Milton, Beatrix Rose, Isabella Rose and Soho Noir series.

Steven has also published a well-received literary coming of age novel, ‘I Have Lived Today’, as well as a popular short story, ‘The Death of Helena.’

    It’s good that it was a page turner, it can be hard to find a book which you really get into that much. Sounds like an interesting story x
