Waiting on Wednesday #19

The Dollhouse Asylum
Title: The Dollhouse Asylum
Author: Mary Gray

Series: N/A
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Expected Publication: October 22, 2013

A virus that had once been contained has returned, and soon no place will be left untouched by its destruction. But when 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.

Why I'm Waiting:
This one sounds kind of creepy. Being told what to do and how to act just so you don't get thrown out of a place that was created as a safe haven just so a virus doesn't kill you just leads to something going wrong. Plus the fact that every couple is renamed after couples in tragic romances just makes me think this won't end well.

What are you guys waiting on this week? Leave me a link below and I'll check it out!

  1. Yes! I want to read this one so bad, too. The cover is super creepy to me and the books sounds like it is going to be crazy. Great pick! My WoW.
