SummaryLast semester, Zoe and Zak returned the first lost Noble Truth to its rightful home. Now, Zoe and Zak are back in India for their second semester at Moonstock Himalayan Academy. School kicks off with the Activity Week Challenge in the tiny mountain kingdom of Bhutan where the students must deliver medical supplies. Things, however, take a turn for the worse, when Zak becomes deathly ill after an encounter with a strange floating bubble. On returning to Moonstock, Zoe and Zak discover that a creature has come through the lava hole far below their dormitory. When Zoe and Zak follow the creature, they soon discover what they must do. They have been tasked with finding the second lost Noble Truth -- the Tiger Eye of Justice. Finding the Tiger Eye sounds like an impossible mission, and it's only made more confusing when Zak discovers that he has been given a supernatural power to help them with their task-- a power which Zak, for the life of him, just can't control. But he's going to have to learn how to use his new ability, because if Zoe and Zak can't find the Tiger Eye quickly, Zak's time will run out.
The awesome yogi adventure continues in Zoe & Zak and the Tiger Temple. Readers find Zoe and Zak still attending Moonstock Academy in India and after competing in the Activity Week Challenge the winning group gets to spend time in paradise. The beautiful island turns out to be anything, but paradise as Zak becomes gravely ill after he and Zoe discover a strange bubble. Once they return to Moondstock, Zak & Zoe learn that their quest is just beginning. Zak finds that he has been given an amazing power to help them on their mission, but the power comes at a price, one that could end up costing Zak his life. Now, they must find the Tiger Eye and the second Noble Truth before it's too late.
As with the two previous books in the series, Tiger Temple is not short on excitement. With incredible yogi powers, unusual creatures, and dangerous tasks, Tiger Temple is an engrossing tale that readers won't be able to put down.
The author is a gifted storyteller and his talent shines through in Tiger Temple. My only disappointment came when I realized this is the last book available in the series so far. I am hoping there are more to come.
