Review - Where Do You Go in the Dark, My Love? by Isha Singh


Title - Where Do You Go in the Dark, My Love?

Author - Isha Singh

Publisher - HarperCollins

Pages - 176

Blurb:
Your understanding of the occult is about to change. There are no vampires here, no werewolves. These are stories of life interrupted by forces unknown: energy flowing dark and silent from unspoken fears, repressed desires and small-town secrets. Set in hauntingly beautiful hill-stations, the sleepy lanes of Lucknow and breath-taking Rishikesh, these stories explore cities and the characters they coil around: whether it is a waiter disillusioned with the world around him, a school boy followed everywhere by a pig, a lawyer who wears a tiger claw at his neck for virility, or a young woman as much in love as she is in mortal danger. Here, in these eerily quiet worlds, are stories of horror that come from the most familiar of places, where nothing is ever as it seems.

Stories of life interrupted by forces unknown: energy flowing dark and silent from unspoken fears, repressed desires and small-town secrets.

Author has done a very impresive job by peening down these stories, every story has great characterisation and plot.
Writing style of the author is very impresive which helps to connect with the stories.
I would recomend this book to the readers of Horror or if anyone wants to start with this genre this book will never disapoint you in any manner you will surely enjoy reading stories presnt in this book.
Lastly I would like to appreciate the work of cover designer, hence I also design cover and I really liked  the cover.
