Review: And The Roses Bled is a dark tale and has been told very well. Horror if done write can enthral the reader but can also turn comic if done incorrectly. Very few authors in India have been able to manage to write horror tales in India and Mehak Daleh has spun a very good yarn with And The Roses Bled.
This book requires some patience and is the work of a master writer announcing the arrival of a great story teller to the world.
The primary tale is about the protagonist Alisha, her sister and best friend. The theme is very dark and horror lovers will definitely love this story. I don’t want to give out the plot since it has been written so well that you must read it yourself.
There are morbid themes in this book and its sure to give you goosebumps.
Mehak’s writing skills are extraordinary and she holds the plot well, never faltering playing with the readers and keeping them on tenterhooks.
