Dress Up Turns Deadly…
When Cassie’s best friend, Aisha, disappears during a school hike, Cassie sets off with Aisha’s boyfriend Ethan and their best friend Lacey, determined to find her. But the mist-enshrouded mountains hold many secrets, and what the three teens discover is far more disturbing than any of them imagined: beneath a rundown mansion in the woods lies an underground cavern full of life-size toys and kidnapped girls forced to dress as dolls.
Even as Cassie desperately tries to escape the Dollhouse, she finds herself torn between her forbidden feelings for Ethan, and her intense, instinctive attraction to The Provider, a man Cassie swears she has known before…
Because Cassie’s capture wasn’t accidental, and the Dollhouse is more than just a prison where her deepest fears come true—it’s a portal for the powers of darkness. And Cassie may be the only one who can stop it.
Anya’s Thoughts on the Dollhouse Cover!
What I instantly adored about this cover was that it captured the otherworldliness, quirkiness and spine-tingling quality of the story.
I think readers who like reading something pretty different and eerie would enjoy Dollhouse–possibly fans of Libba Bray’s ‘A Great and Terrible Beauty’ and maybe even American Horror Story.
Anya Allyn grew up in Sydney, Australia and now lives by the beach on the central coast. She spends her days with five incredibly cool males- four of whom are her kids. As a child, she could be found reading, sketching comic strips or fainting during choir practice in her school convent. She has worked in entertainment, as a wedding hire manager, as a dating company receptionist (where she lasted a week!) and most recently as a features Editor for Fairfax media in Australia. Dollhouse is her first novel.
