Dollhouse (Dark Carousel #1) by Anya Allyn #BooKReview

 
A spine-tingling Gothic Thriller

An abandoned mansion, deep in the woods. A dollhouse, filled with life-sized toys. A doorway into other realms. And girls who keep disappearing...

When Cassie’s best friend, Aisha, vanishes during a school hike, Cassie sets off with Aisha's boyfriend and their friend Lacey, determined to find her. Instead, the three teens fall into a carefully-laid trap—deep into the surreal nightmare and dark secrets of the Dollhouse.

Now, Cassie must uncover the mysteries of the Dollhouse and her own connection to it-- before it's too late.

With the horror and otherworldliness of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and the gothic romance of A Great and Terrible Beauty, Dollhouse is a tantalizing start to The Dark Carousel series.

Anya Allyn enjoys fiction that is a little on the dark side. Also, she enjoys Black Forest Cake just a little too much. She lives by the beach with her partner and four children, about an hour away from the Sydney (Australia) rush. She has previously worked as a Features' Editor for Fairfax Media and in promotions.

She is the author of The Dark Carousel series and the Lake Ephemeral novel.

This book was a spine chilling book for sure. But I think that this book fell kind of flat for me in some places. The pacing of this book was really off and there wasn't really any action till the end of the book. The characters were not very well developed well and were at some points a little bothersome. But the concept was a cool idea.
