Waiting on Wednesday #33 - The Dollhouse Asylum


Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine
that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.




The Dollhouse Asylum by Mary Gray
Release Date: Oct 22 / 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 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.

This one sounds so creepy! And the cover gives me chills too. Is there mythology mixed in? I hope so! I think it might have something to do with Greek myth 'cause the synopsis mentioned Persephone and the Elysian Fields :)
