‘The Grim Reaper and I’ By Naveena Srinivas

Tessa, 21, is broken after her share of toxic relationships. Each one proving to be a better one but left her craving for love blindly. Robiel wastes no time swooping her right off the feet even before she could process the thin line between nonsense and perilous.

He swears to help her through the darkness. She latches onto him like a butterfly to a frog in disguise of a hydrangea blooming in her gloomy heart.

Will she wake up from her slumber? Who exactly is Robiel? Inhumane or non-human?
