The Last Tale of the Flower Bride

A Novel

By Roshani Chokshi
Narrated by: Steve West & Sura Siu
Length: 9 hours 16 minutes

The Last Tale of the Flower Bride

“This is one of the most surprising books I have ever read - the ending made me want to reread the book immediately with a different perspective of knowing what happens. I went into this book knowing very little about it to be pleasantly enchanted with a lush, seductive, dangerously dark, and masterfully crafted fairytale of loss and love. This book makes you think, one that demands your attention with its eerie world, mystic intrigue, and secrets. This book makes you question who is the beauty of the tale and who's the beast? This book has left an impression similar to an itch that can't be scratched. I can't stop thinking about this story! PS. This book is read by one of my favorite audiobook readers, Steve West. He did an excellent job as always with Sura Siu. ”
