House of Mysteries


Kenzie Mehl, Staff Writer

Do not look. Do not ask. Do not pry.” That is what Indigo regularly told her husband since the day they met. He vowed he could live without knowing her past, and as long as he obeyed those three rules their marriage remained happy and safe. Furthermore, The Last Tale Of The Flower Bride by Roshani Chokshi is a gothic-infused story full of friendship, mystery, and love. 

One day Indigo receives news her aunt is on her deathbed, causing Indigo and her husband to return to the House of Dreams. This house is full of secrets and mysteries, but will it be willing to let Indigo’s husband in on the truth? The house reveals the past between Indigo and her childhood friend Azure who went missing. Is he prepared to break the rules and find out the real truth?

The Last Tale of The Flower Bride has both Indigo’s husband’s and Azure’s points of view. Every chapter unlocks a new possibility and secret. This book is filled with plot twists and will leave you speechless at the end. Chokshi’s amazing writing makes you feel as if you are a character in the book. 

Every time I was ready to put down this book, it drew me back to it. The plot is intense and capturing. Once I got through the first few chapters, I couldn’t stop reading it. The character relationships create a good storyline and the backstories of the main characters make the book so much more interesting and enjoyable.

I could read this book over and over again, and I don’t think I would ever get tired of it. Chokshi’s most popular book The Gilded Wolves is a story about a haunting fairytale about friendship and love. It has amazing reviews and people seem to think that Chokshi stepped up her game with this book. 

This is the first book I’ve read from Chokshi and I look forward to reading more from her. Her writing is so beautiful and engaging. If you like books with mystery, betrayal, plot twists, and that are slow-paced then I recommend this book for you.
