Today I am bringing you a review as part of a small blog tour for Steve Moore’s book, Tiger Temple. It is the first in the ‘Hiram Kane Adventure Series’ and was published at the end of last year.

A betrayed criminal. A kidnapped child. A deadly race against time.
On the Island of the Gods, expedition leader Hiram Kane is on holiday after a long season guiding in the Peruvian Andes. When a good friend’s greed leads him to betray Bali’s most notorious gangster, their peaceful community is left shell-shocked after the six-year-old daughter of its leader gets kidnapped in a vicious and violent raid.
What follows is a whirlwind race across the paradise island to rescue the girl before ‘The Rooster’ takes his sadistic revenge, and with the waking giant of volcanic Mt. Agung threatening to destroy them all, Kane risks everything to prevent a devastating tragedy.
The Tiger Temple is the exciting new starter to the Hiram Kane adventure series. For fans of Russell Blake and Clive Cussler, Steven Moore’s action thriller will leave you breathless.
About the Author:
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 atlast found a beautiful home base, the next adventure is always just around the corner.
Steven has recently published the first three installments of his action thriller series, ‘The Tiger Temple’, ‘TheSamurai Code’, and ‘The Condor Prophecy’, to great acclaim, and the 4th, ‘The Shadow of Kailash’, is coming in spring of 2018.
“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)

I’ve never been to Bali, at least I haven’t physically but I now feel as if I have as Moore’s writing really enveloped me and made me feel as if I was there!
This is a novella, the first in a series to introduce the reader to the main character, Hiram Kane and I feel it is done really well. He is a tough guy, not unlike Jack Reacher in that he wants to help people and is all action and couple that with a volcano ready to erupt and you will soon realise that you’re in for a great story and a bumpy ride!
I really enjoyed this novella and will definitely be adding the next in the series to my Wishlist! I would definitely recommend it to fans of Adventure (think Indiana Jones) and people that like stories told in foreign lands that they one day hope to visit .. as long as it doesn’t give you too much wanderlust!
Thank you to Steve and his publishers for giving me a copy of this book to read.
