The Dollhouse Asylum

by: Mary Gray

To be published October 8th, 2013


A virus that had once been contained has returned, and soon no place will be left untouched by its destruction. But when seventeen-year-old Cheyenne wakes up in Elysian Fields–a subdivision cut off from the world and its monster-creating virus–she is thrilled to have a chance at survival.At first, Elysian Fields,with its beautiful houses and manicured lawns, is perfect. Teo Richardson, the older man who stole Cheyenne’s heart, built it so they could be together. But when Teo tells Cheyenne there are tests that she and seven other couples must pass to be worthy of salvation, Cheyenne begins to question the perfection of his world.

The people they were before are gone. Cheyenne is now “Persephone,” and each couple has been re-named to reflect the most tragic romances ever told. Everyone is fighting to pass the test, to remain in Elysian Fields. Teo dresses them up, tells them when to move and how to act, and in order to pass the test, they must play along.

If they play it right, then they’ll be safe.

But if they play it wrong, they’ll die

FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC cover!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I mean sweet goodness gracious this is jus a amazing cover. I know there is more to the book than just the cover but, come on! How can you not swoon over it?!

Moving on to the blurb:


If they play it right, then they’ll be safe.
But if they play it wrong, they’ll die


That part right there sealed the deal for me. Yes I know I have to wait until October to get a HARDBACK copy and that does make me sad but I’m ok with that. I can sit and count down the days until this yummy read is available. I won’t wait patiently, and I definitely will not wait quietly, but I will indeed wait.




What titles are you impatiently waiting on?
