We review the magical adventures in Tiger's Blood, the novel by Laurence Yep!

Title: Tiger's Blood
Author: Laurence Yep
Ages: 9+
Rating: 4

In this sequel to The Tiger's Apprentice, we're back to hanging out with Tom Lee and his magical friends, Mistral the dragon, Mr. Hu the tiger, Monkey, and Sidney the flying rat. In the first book, Tom and friends managed to keep the evil Vatten and his minions from getting the Phoenix Egg and turning Earth into a charcoal briquette. Now they have the egg and, to keep it safe, they're off to the dragon kingdom at the bottom of the ocean. Grab your swim fins, it's time to get wet!

Splashing Around with the Dragon Kingdom

Tiger's Blood starts with Tom and his friends diving into the politics and weirdness of the magical underwater dragon kingdom. Unfortunately, once they get there it gets really slow. It's interesting to hear about the underwater kingdom, but nothing exciting happens until you get halfway through the book.

Angry Dragons!

The most interesting part of Tiger's Blood is how Tom was saved by an infusion of magical tiger blood. Now he's getting a little weird and the tiger spirit, Mr. Hu, is really weak. Tom's friends are also a bit of a problem 'cuz in the dragon kingdom, Mistral and Monkey are wanted criminals!

The Bottom Line

If you're in the mood for a fantasy story in a magic kingdom, and don't mind waiting for the exciting stuff to start happening, Tiger's Blood is a decent story. It has fun characters and, when stuff starts getting crazy, with ancient chinese monsters, spells and spies, it really goes nuts!

I guess it depends on where you live. If there is a state / country that doesn't allow you to have a phone until you're 13, that's utterly ridiculous and I'd imagine they're in the minority with that law.

Didn't read many responses so no idea if this has already been said but personally I'd say yes and for the reason better them than us.

No idea if someone's already written a reply similar to mine, I didn't read much of them because this isn't really a debate, it's more of a straight up question with the answer being because quite a lot of people under the age of 18 are incapable of making responsible votes. I mean, let's take a step back. Everyone knows Trump would be a ridiculous candidate to vote for, his views are borderline (if not full on) fascist. He wants to keep a database of who is Muslim. If you don't find that ridiculous and outright bigotry and discrimination, don't even bother me with your response. (Long story short, vote for Bernie Sanders, I live in the UK and even I know that) Anyway, I'm going off topic. The reason I detailed why Trump would be a terrible person to vote for is because everyone with common sense knows it, meaning people under 18 too. And what happens when you give voting privileges to a 14 year old basement dweller who spends all his time on # ###? He thinks it's funny to cast a vote for Trump. In fact, it's not only your average pre-######### teenager who will find this funny, there's probably quite a lot of people who would vote for Trump "for the lols". Yes, there are people like that. And what happens when enough of these idiots think it's funny to vote for Trump? He racks up a decent amount of votes, not to mention all the ignorant racists who will be voting for him, and let's face it, there's lots of them. Maybe you, as a person under 18 would not vote stupidly, I know I wouldn't, but sadly, people who are under 18 and mature don't make up the majority, meaning you're going to get a lot of people who don't know what they're doing voting for dumb reasons whether it be "for the lols" or because they're voting for who their parents support.
