Flowers of Darkness by Tatiana De Rosnay

Clarissa left her husband and moved into a secret housing complex where you had to be interviewed before you could live there.

You had to be an artist or writer or any type of creative person.

Are they really looking for talented folks or looking for someone who won’t suspect the reason for the security and scrutiny of your life as you live there?

Clarissa definitely felt as though someone was watching her besides her virtual personal assistant.  Her cat seemed to feel the same way.

Something was going on in this extremely secured building with cameras in every room.  It is a futuristic building where your every move was watched.

I don’t know why Clarissa didn’t move out of the building.

The writing is excellent as always, but FLOWERS OF DARKNESS was a slow read for me even though it wasn’t very long and had a bit of a mystery.

The futuristic things which were the major gist of the book are not something I read so this book wasn't as enjoyable as I would have liked. 3/5

This book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.


  1. Gorgeous cover, but just not for me.

    Thanks for stopping.

  2. I'm glad I didn't take this one.
    It does not sound good.
    Pretty cover though.
    Very nice review.

    1. Thanks about my review.

      Yes...futuristic isn't for me.

      Thanks for your comment, Linda.
