Summary

Last 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.

Review 

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review.

I really enjoy the Zoe and Zak books. The first two, Zoe & Zak and the Ghost Leopard and Zoe & Zak and the Yogi’s Curse, were good and this one is even better. Zoe and Zak always find adventure in India and since they’re going to school there, it is nonstop adventure.

In Zoe & Zak and the Tiger Temple, they have to find  the Second Noble Truth before something terrible happens to Zak. Zoe still has her yogi powers, although she still can’t control them very well, and Zak finally gets a power, which he learns is a two-edged sword. They still have riddles to solve and, of course, there are animals everywhere.

Lars Guignard’s writing is easy to read and the story flows well and he has a great sense of humor. Zoe & Zak and the Tiger Temple is another must read for readers of all ages. I can’t wait for more books in the Zoe & Zak series!
