Book Trailer Reveal: Dollhouse by Anya Allyn

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

There's something magical about playing dress-up when you're a little girl, just like there's something magical going on through the windows of a dollhouse. So naturally, when Paper Lantern Lit's new digital imprint, The Studio, approached me to help reveal the brand new book trailer for Dollhouse by Anya Allyn, there was no way I could resist. Dark, atmospheric and a little bit terrifying, this one has all the makings of a future favourite!

Dress-up turns deadly...

When Cassie’s best friend, Aisha, disappears during a school hike, Cassie sets off with Aisha’s boyfriend Ethan and their best friend Lacey, determined to find her. But the mist-enshrouded mountains hold many secrets, and what the three teens discover is far more disturbing than any of them imagined: beneath a rundown mansion in the woods lies an underground cavern full of life-size toys and kidnapped girls forced to dress as dolls.

Even as Cassie desperately tries to escape the Dollhouse, she finds herself torn between her forbidden feelings for Ethan, and her intense, instinctive attraction to The Provider, a man Cassie swears she has known before…

Because Cassie’s capture wasn’t accidental, and the Dollhouse is more than just a prison where her deepest fears come true—it’s a portal for the powers of darkness. And Cassie may be the only one who can stop it.

Anya Allyn grew up in Sydney, Australia, and now lives by the beach on The Central Coast. She spends her days with five incredibly cool males - four of whom are her kids.

As a child, she could be found reading, sketching comic strips or fainting during choir practice in her school convent. She has worked in entertainment, as a wedding hire manager, as a dating company receptionist (where she lasted a week!) and most recently as a Features' Editor for Fairfax Media in Australia. Dollhouse is her first novel.

  1. I don't think I've seen a trailer so creepy since Horde by Ann Aguirre! And I'm not surprised that such an original story would come from an Aussie author. Best things always do, right? Very few things are as creepy as dolls.
    Thanks for sharing!
