Cover Reveal: The Dollhouse Asylum by Mary Gray


The Dollhouse Asylum
By Mary Gray
Release Date: October 8th 2013
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
 
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.

My Thoughts: Doesn't this sound so creepy? I think I'll get nightmares just by reading this blurb! The whole thing about the virus is so... clich├ęd. By now, we'll have seen hundreds of dystopians begin with "a virus,a sickness, a plague, etc." caused our society to crumble and turn into a dystopian society. Still, this book seems to focus more on the creepy than the political situation of the time. This book definitely seems to be one of the few unique dystopians out there on the radar.

  1. That blurb is super creepy! I don't really mind the whole virus breaks out and causes society to crumble thing. Those sorts of plots always intrigue me, so I'm really excited for this one :)

  2. I have to admit. I get pretty excited when a title has the word asylum in it. I have a thing for crazy people in books.
    Did not see the whole Greek Mythology thing happening. I would have said this was going to be about some very popular girl who unfortunately ticks off the wrong person and gets sent to an asylum.
    Go creepy!
