Doll House Tour! A Review of Doll House by Anya Allyn

Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal)

The Blurb:
Fifteen year old Aisha disappears in the forests on a school hiking trip. She's the latest in a string of children to vanish there over the past five years. The towns surrounding the forests are on edge and they demand answers. And wildboy Ethan—Aisha's boyfriend—is on the run after he and his grandfather are blamed for Aisha's disappearance.

Cassie is just about the only friend Ethan has left. She's been secretly in love with him ever since her mother dragged her to the wilds of Australia from Florida six months ago.

Desperate to prove Ethan's innocence, Cassie searches the forests with Ethan to find out what really happened to Aisha. But Ethan's growing strangely silent, and Cassie's left questioning if her feelings for him are clouding her judgment.

Cassie discovers a dark secret lurking in the heart of the forests; a secret world of nightmarish horrors—where nothing is as it seems, where the supernatural invades your soul, where the people she trusted most might be the people she can trust the least, and where escape exists only in dreams.
My Review:
Doll House is the first book in a new trilogy by Anya Allyn.The story started strong. There was mystery, suspicion, and romance surrounding the main characters. Towards the middle, the pace slowed up quite a bit, and I struggled to stay attentive to the day to day going ons inside the Doll House. It became somewhat repetitive, but gave you a pretty good understanding of what was expected of the inhabitants and how they lived. I didn't find the story particularly scary, but it really takes a lot to creep me out. So, you can't go by me when it comes to the scary-ness factor. The ending picked up again and answered some lingering questions, but there are still many questions that will hopefully be answered in the upcoming books. Doll House definitely offers up something different for fans of paranormal fiction.
